A MULTISENSO­RY EX­PE­RI­ENCE

Epicure - - LUXE STAYS -

If your idea of the per­fect va­ca­tion in­volves a lodge in Bhutan, a desert ad­ven­ture in Israel’s Arava Val­ley or a palazzo in the heart of Rome, you may want to take a closer look at three of Six Senses’ lat­est prop­er­ties.

Six Senses Bhutan just un­veiled its fifth and fi­nal lodge, as part of a jour­ney across the pic­turesque west­ern and cen­tral val­leys of the King­dom. Six Senses Bumthang is lo­cated in Bhutan’s spir­i­tual heart­land, home to an­cient monas­ter­ies and sa­cred mon­u­ments. The lodge was built around ex­ist­ing pine trees and each of the eight suites fea­tures spa­cious bal­conies and for­est views across the val­ley. The five-lodge, five-val­ley jour­ney seam­lessly weaves the brand’s well­ness, sus­tain­abil­ity and out-of-the-or­di­nary ex­pe­ri­ences with the King­dom’s nat­u­ral and spir­i­tual rich­ness.

In a com­pletely dif­fer­ent land­scape, the re­cently opened Six Senses Sha­harut of­fers an im­mer­sive desert ad­ven­ture in the south of Negev Desert. With 60 suites and vil­las, the re­sort flaw­lessly blends in with its earthy sur­round­ing. Hand-carved stone walls and a sand-coloured in­te­rior make way for the dra­matic val­ley panorama, highly vis­i­ble from the floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows of the suites and vil­las. There is a panoply of won­drous ex­pe­ri­ences. From jeep sa­faris to camel treks and from sun­rise yoga to late-night stargaz­ing, find en­rich­ing de­lights in ev­ery turn. Restora­tive treat­ments and well­ness pro­grammes are also avail­able at Six Senses Spa.

Set to open in late 2021, Six Senses Rome will be Six Senses’ first prop­erty in Italy and is lux­u­ri­ously lo­cated in the heart of the an­cient city, Pi­azza di San Mar­cello. Fon­tana di Trevi and Pan­theon is just a few blocks away while the city’s shop­ping streets of Via Con­dotti, Frat­tina and Bor­gognona are within walk­ing dis­tance. This Pa­tri­cia Urquiola-de­signed ho­tel of­fers 95 guest rooms and suites. It is also equipped with a spa, a restau­rant, an events ter­race, an out­door court­yard gar­den, and a rooftop ter­race with a 360-de­gree view of the city. Ro­man baths and the Six Senses Spa will pro­vide a sanc­tu­ary of well­ness for guests af­ter a long day out to ex­plore all the roads that lead to Rome. www.sixsenses.com
