Six Senses launches wellness programming for children

by Jane Kitchen | 26 Apr 2018

Six Senses has launched a new Grow With Six Senses programme for the resorts’ youngest guests, designed to give children useful life skills and wellness knowledge during their holiday.

Grow With Six Senses incorporates six dimensions of wellness into all activities for children, and is company’s new approach to kids and family wellness.

“Grow With Six Senses incorporates the six dimensions of wellness (social, environmental, physical, spiritual, emotional and intellectual) and brings kids ‘back to basics’ in order to reconnect with nature and others around them,” said Anna Bjurstam, vice president of spa and wellness. “This framework ensures a holistic offering for the minds of our little guests. We’re really proud of what each resort has created, and we know families are going to love the experience too.”

The approach is to learn through natural play, and is designed as an adventure. As children journey through each activity, they’ll get a new stamp for their personal Six Senses passport.

Programmes vary from resort to resort, but introduce specifically designed physical activities, yoga and mindfulness, local culture, sustainability and social experiences.

There’s also the chance to pamper with tailor-made spa treatments. The focus is on offering something a little out of the ordinary to attract even the most reticent. Children can learn how to make their own toothpaste, facial mask, body scrub, after-sun lotion and edible water bubbles.

Cookery, yoga, treasure hunts, ball games and fitness challenges are also available.

Activities at Six Senses Yao Noi include roselle harvesting and flying yoga, while at Six Senses Fiji, kids can make their own snacks using a solar oven. Six Senses Laamu has a garden for salad foraging and offers junior Zumba and healthy cookie making.

But it’s not all about doing; there are plenty of ‘being’ options, including simple meditation at Six Senses Samui and Six Senses Yao Noi incorporating the art of singing bowls.

At Six Senses Ninh Van Bay and Evason Ana Mandara, children’s innate creativity comes into play, as they dabble with Vietnamese origami and painting.

Six Senses Con Dao includes small visits to the local school, to which parents are also invited. Six Senses Douro Valley offers tile painting and Six Senses Kaplankaya ceramic decorating. At Six Senses Zighy Bay, kids can get to grips with Arabic lessons.

Children can also learn about upcycling and recycling at the Earth Lab, or join the gardeners in the resorts’ organic gardens for anything from seed planting to mushroom harvesting.

Other activities can include making kites and flowers with recycled paper, a local farm visit, finding dinosaur fossils, recycled shell crafts, purifying water, candle making and growing seeds in a coconut shell.

Grow With Six Senses continues through family activities such as coastal walks, movie evenings, sandcastle building, storytelling, mastermind puzzle challenges, and at Six Senses Zil Pasyon, Big Cook-Little Cook.
