Six Senses to open Swiss resort with 2,000sq m spa

by Jane Kitchen | 05 Jul 2017

Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas has announced plans to open its first resort in Switzerland.

Upon completion, the 47–bedroom Six Senses Crans-Montana will operate under a long-term management agreement with 1875 Finance. The resort located in the prominent ski areas of Valais, two hours from Geneva.

Wellness offerings at the resort include a 22,000 square foot (2,000 square meter) spa specialising in alpine treatments, gym and fitness studio, pool and suspended relaxation area. The spa will also include a dedicated area for children and teen treatments.

“This project will offer an amazing selection of outdoor activities including onsite ski-in and ski out access plus a rich wellness offering,” said Bernhard Bohnenberger, president of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas.

“The resort nicely complements Six Senses Douro Valley in Portugal, Six Senses Residences Courchevel in France as well as the seven award-winning Six Senses spas in Europe in Paris, Crete, Mykonos, Marbella, Gstaad, Courchevel and in the premium lounges of Etihad at London’s Heathrow Airport."

Resort accommodations include 47 guest rooms and suites, with 17 Six Senses three- and four-bedroom residential units available for purchase. Two restaurants are planned as well as a sun terrace and bar and retail space.

Recycled, local materials will be selected by the architect and design teams and repurposed materials will be used in the manufacture of finishes including flooring, millwork and fabrics. Energy and water conservation also plays a key role in the project’s design.

Efficient lighting, lighting controls, ozone protection and renewable energy sources will be featured at the resort.

A blackwater and greywater system are to be included into the infrastructure of the project ensuring that wastewater is reused within the building operations. Rainwater will also be collected for treatment and use.
