Six Senses to open Taiwanese hot springs resort designed by Kengo Kuma

by Jane Kitchen | 23 Aug 2017

Six Senses will open a hot springs resort in the Zhiben area of Taiwan, an area known for its natural hot springs, medicinal plants and herbs.

Located in Taitung in southeastern Taiwan, Six Senses Zhiben Hot Springs will be situated at the base of Medicine Mountain, with views of the surrounding valley and mountains, and is set to open in 2020.

Both the resort and spa are designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, known for his ability to celebrate and frame nature through design.

Comprising 42 suites and 27 villas, the resort will sit lightly upon the 20-hectare (50-acre) site, occupying just ten percent of the project site.

Kuma's landform architecture will merge with the natural surroundings. The curvaceous building is designed to be hidden in the landscape, while simultaneously leaping forward from its lush green environment. Reinforcing this relationship between the man-made and the natural, floor-to-ceiling windows will provide views of the surrounding environment. Natural materials will be used indoors to create a feeling of warmth and comfort.

The resort's spa will be located in a separate building and spread over three floors, offering mountain views. There will be seven treatment rooms, a tea lounge, extensive wet areas, indoor and outdoor hot spring bathing pools, a watsu pool, suspended relaxation pods, a gym, a fitness studio, a Tai Chi garden, a juice bar, an infinity pool and a range of roof top vitality and floating pools.
