SENSES OF THE PACIFIC
Six Senses is known for setting its resorts in areas of great natural beauty. The group has turned its attention to more manmade locales, with Six Senses Singapore set to open in two stages this year – one building next month and another in September – and a new urban concept slated for New York next year. But its more familiar approach to style, wellness and sustainability will be seen when its first South Pacific property, Six Senses Fiji, opens on Malolo Island on April 14 on a 650m private beach.
The resort will be the first in Fiji to be 100 per cent solar powered. Accommodation is in 24 one- and two-bedroom pool villas, all with private pools, decks and outdoor showers. Wellness features include spa, gym, hot and cold whirlpools and a treetop yoga pavilion.
Other Six Senses resorts due to open this year include Six Senses Kaplankaya (Turkey) on May 1; a Bali resort will open in Uluwatu in October; and Six Senses Krabey Island in Cambodia the next month. SIXSENSES.COM
