Six Senses to expand portfolio with nine properties worldwide

Like an unstoppable giant, Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas is extending the reach of its realm across the globe.

True to its heritage of creating exceptional resorts and spas featuring unique, crafted guest experiences in places of incredible natural beauty, Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas has announced nine new development concepts set to open over the next three years. Growth also includes the addition of four incredible Six Senses Spas and the brand's broadening expansion into the lifestyle of wellness.

CEO, Six Senses Hotels and Resorts Spas, Neil Jacobs commented: "The rapid brand expansion of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas ignited in Asia, Europe, South America, Northern Africa and the Caribbean allows us to redefine ourselves on a global scale with the addition of our first ski resort, first urban hotel and three amazing resort projects located at UNESCO World Heritage Sites."

Featuring brilliantly designed suites, Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain, opening in 2014, is the only resort located adjacent to the UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Chinese province of Sichuan. Chengdu Shangliu International Airport is a one-hour drive from Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain and Chengdu City is 30 minutes by car or rail link.

Demonstrating that Six Senses' ethos adapts wonderfully to all locations of great natural beauty, the 32-suite Six Senses Mont Blanc is nestled in the French Alpine area of Saint-Gervais-les-Bains and offers an extraordinary 180-degree panorama of Europe's highest peak. The exclusive resort is accessed by cable car, snowmobile or helicopter.

Six Senses Spa at Al Bustan Palace sits in its own little wadi (valley) complete with two secluded beaches. The building itself makes for a true Omani architectural jewel hidden and flush with the landscape of the soaring mountains. It follows the shape of the landscape and is hence built over three floors.
