SENSES OF THE PA­CIFIC

Sunday Herald Sun - Escape - - TRAVEL NEWS - SU­SAN BUGG

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
