Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas Premieres First and Only Resort and Spa in Ibiza

Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas Premieres First and Only Resort and Spa in Ibiza
Visionary hospitality that celebrates wellness, sustainability and community

BANGKOK – June 19, 2017 – Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas is delighted to announce the latest addition to their inspiring portfolio, Six Senses Ibiza. Set to open in 2020, the resort is tucked away on the peaceful northern tip of Ibiza in the crystalline Cala Xarraca Bay. With its unobstructed westerly sunset views, dramatic rocky beach and picturesque seafront with yacht access, this full-service resort, spa and residential community dances to the beat of a new mantra: transformative wellness to nourish the body, mind and soul.

Chief Executive Officer Neil Jacobs of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas said, “We’re very excited to open our first resort, spa and residential project in Ibiza, a project that celebrates wellness, sustainability and community spirit. This third European property complements our sister resort in Portugal’s Douro Valley, residential project in Courchevel, France and seven fabulous spas in France, Greece, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.”

Six Senses has signed a management agreement with Beach Box Ibiza S.L. to open the resort in 2020 as a benchmark in innovative design, unique entertainment concepts and eclectic dining experiences. “We could not be more pleased to work with Beach Box Ibiza on this truly creative project,” said Jacobs.

Six Senses Ibiza will offer 134 guest accommodations across a 25-acre site including fully appointed Townhouse Suites, Deluxe Pool Suites with private decks, Beach Cave Suites and two extraordinary six-bedroom Mansions. Available for a handful of residential buyers are nine captivating private villas located above the resort with expansive sunset views.  Every aspect of the property’s physical design will facilitate the feeling of community and the activities and amenities offered to guests will focus on learning and experience.

According to Jonathan Leitersdorf of Beach Box Ibiza S.L., the visionary behind the design and the development of the project, “Our vision is to capture the authentic Ibiza experience of community, spirituality and celebration to be delivered with top service, organic food and beverage, and luxurious accommodations for our guests. It will be the first full-service hospitality experience with rich amenities that are not yet offered on the island. Partnering with a world-class operator such as Six Senses, together we will deliver a resort and residential community for all ages, while promoting the importance of sustainability and healthy living.”

The refreshingly fun and quirky attitude of Six Senses, with its focus on wellness, sustainability and uncompromising guest experiences, comes to life in a vision that encompasses:

SPIRITUALITY AND WELLNESS – Six Senses Ibiza will offer a one-of-a kind spiritual learning center with an innovative approach to optimizing health which includes fitness, nutrition, education, yoga, sleep, mindfulness and more. Guests select how far they want to go in pioneering their health and wellness practices and will have a place to relax, recharge and enjoy.

ORGANIC – The property will offer a local, organic, unmodified and unprocessed food experience. The organic offering continues with the cotton of the sheets and towels as well as the amenities kits and uniquely designed apparel.

MUSIC AND FESTIVALS – Six Senses Ibiza will be on the pulse of the community for musicians, music lovers and multi-cultural music creation. They will host pro bono and sponsored programs, festivals, projects and guitar workshops, as well as an annually curated showcase of music performances and wellness festivals for celebrating through yoga, meditation, great food, sports and nature.

SPA – The Six Senses Spa on the island of Ibiza will specialize in a rich array of treatments and techniques from all over the world.  With its spiritual vibe and beautiful design, Six Senses Spa Ibiza offers a full range of treatment rooms, a communal treatment lounge and an oxygen bar. The spa and wellness facility houses a spa café and juice bar, yoga and changing facilities and an extensive fitness center, and features an anti-aging clinic, nutrition guidance and modern healing methods. Outdoors there are massage catacombs, a Watsu pool, a labyrinth plus direct access to the organic gardens where ingredients for the spa botanicals and dining outlets are grown. In addition to the team of skilled therapists, an ongoing program of visiting practitioners ensures guests are the first to experience the latest teachings and programs.

CHARITABLE – Six Senses Ibiza will provide their space and services for local projects such as sharing food with local shelters and donating a portion of profits locally.

DINING – As with all Six Senses properties, destination dining is a memorable experience. At Six Senses Ibiza, there will be a social twist. Long communal dining tables will offer local produce and intermingling at The Market, open 24/7. The poolside offers a raw food organic bar with accompanying cocktails and organic beer. The tapas and barbecue seafood terrace of El Chiringuito sets a decidedly chill mood with live acoustic guitar and late night DJ.

A popup restaurant in the resort’s organic farm will also offer cooking lessons. Private dining will also be offered in suites as they all feature decks or private gardens. As with every Six Senses resort, an ice cream shop on wheels, inspired by a traditional street vendor’s cart, will offer a spectrum of homemade chilled treats, juices and smoothies with a booster supplement menu.
