Six Senses Bhutan

If you are familiar with Six Senses hotels, you're probably thinking "spa" and locations like Thailand and Vietnam. While the focus on spa and wellness isn't going anywhere, you’ll likely find Six Senses closer to home in the future, with planned openings in places like the Caribbean island of St. Lucia and the French Alps near Mont Blanc.

Six Senses is also pulling an Aman, if we can say there is such a thing, in the remote kingdom of Bhutan in 2016. Its resort here will be split across five lodges in Thimphu, Punakha, Gangtey, Bumthang and Paro, allowing you to travel through Bhutan much like Aman Resorts’ Amankora. Did we mention that there is Taiwan, China, Bali, and Tunisia too?

On St. Lucia, Six Senses Freedom Bay will be on the southwest coast of the island, in a UNESCO World Heritage Site called the Pitons. There will be 73 pool suites and villas overlooking the sea, with a private beach club. Opening is not until 2016, the same year Six Senses Wuma opens in the Jhih-ben hot spring area of Taitung in southeastern Taiwan with 50 suites and villas. A year earlier, Six Senses Mont Blanc will have 32 suites an hour away from Geneva with views of Europe’s highest mountain.

Continuing on in China, Six Senses Ninghai will have 129 villas a three-hour drive from Shanghai, and Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain will consist of 113 suites and villas a half hour from Chengdu.

Bali, which is getting some serious hotel attention, will also have a Six Senses at Uluwatu, on the southern tip of the island, with 120 suites and villas. Finally Six Senses Gammarth is set on the coast near the capital Tunis in Tunisia, with 67 suites and pool villas.

Phew, we’re a little exhausted just from rattling of all of that off, and there are separate spa openings (not hotels) in destinations ranging from Almaty to Mumbai and Pune to Oman. Six Senses is getting seriously busy over the next few years.
