LIFE’S A BEACH
GRAND OPENINGS Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas builds a home on Fiji’s Malolo Island.
Slated to open on 14 April, Six Senses Fiji is situated on Malolo Island, the largest of the Mamanuca Islands cluster and located west of Viti Levu, the country’s capital. Malolo can be accessed via a 10- minute helicopter ride or a 35-minute boat ride from Denarau Marina.
Accommodation-wise, couples can select from the 24 one-bedroom pool villas, with suites and residences in two- to five-bedroom configurations available for families and groups.
Sustainability is key at Six Senses Fiji. Not only does it run on just solar power, it collects rainwater and uses a septic system and water reservoirs, both of which replace the need for a desalination plant. The resort’s eco-friendly vision extends to its two restaurants, where local catch is sourced sustainably from fishermen and nearby village markets, and crops are farmed from its garden and local farmers. Six Senses Spa’s multidimensional wellness programme is led by medical doctors and includes a wellness examination that’ll allow the therapists to customise a programme based on his or her needs. Guests can expect their programme to include not only spa treatments, but also exercises and meditation plans, along with sleep tips and guidance.
