Cambodian island Six Senses spa to feature meditation cave, outdoor yoga sala

by Jane Kitchen | 22 Jun 2016

Six Senses has announced plans for a new resort in Cambodia, Six Senses Krabey Island, which is scheduled to premier in 2017.

Located on the island of Krabey, the resort will be comprised of 40 pool villas, all with private plunge pools and decking. Six Senses' designer team is working with DIN (Dimensional Interpretations) on the interior design of the resorts.

Guests will arrive at the mainland reception before a short water transfer to the 30-acre island, where the resort is set in a natural landscape.

Six Senses Spa Krabey Island will feature the Six Senses specialty menu, as well as several ancient Cambodian healing traditions and multi-day rejuvenation journeys, along with the Six Senses Integrative Wellness programme, detox, yoga and workshops.

The spa will also feature an Alchemy Bar, first developed at Six Senses Douro Valley, for spa personalisation.

Visiting practitioners will bring a range of alternative treatments, and the spa will also feature a meditation cave, nail bar, gym, outdoor yoga sala and outdoor treatment sala. A spa library and juice bar will incorporate a variety of fresh fruits and herbs from the island, and the retail boutique will include a range of resort wear, yoga wear and natural body and beauty products.

The resort will also offer the Sleep with Six Senses experience, which includes Naturalmat mattresses and dedicated sleep ambassadors.

“We are delighted to add this gorgeous gem to our portfolio of island escapes,” said Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas president Bernhard Bohnenberger. “It is a great pleasure to align with a like-minded and committed owner when it comes to sustainability and wellness. RPB Investment company, based in Cambodia, has taken careful steps to preserve and protect the island of Krabey and is also employing thoughtful and conscientious design into the project’s building practices. We are eager to offer an enticing holiday option and new destination to travellers bound for Cambodia and Southeast Asia.”

Six Senses Krabey Island will also offer a wide range of under- and over-water activities, including snorkelling, diving, kayaking and a poolside outdoor cinema.

An observatory is also planned, which will house an astronomical telescope and stargazing sessions with expert talks on the universe.
