Six Senses has confirmed its desert resort and spa in the Arava Valley, Israel, designed by Plesner Architects, will open in June after ten years of design and planning.

Located in the Negev Desert, Six Senses Shaharut will be a modern reinterpretation of nomadic structures, reminiscent of the Nabataean community which occupied the area over 2,000 years ago.

The resort’s design preserves the unique characteristics of the site, integrating with the natural desert terrain.

Architect Daniela Plesner said: "We wanted the stones, the patterns, the textures and the colours to be omnipresent, resulting in architecture that is woven in with the natural elements."

The 60-suite and -villa resort will cover an area of 46ac (18ha) and include a 2,000sq m (21,500sq ft) Six Senses Spa with an outdoor relaxation pergola, indoor and outdoor pools, Turkish hammams and saunas and five treatment rooms, including two for couples.

“Six Senses Shaharut marks a new milestone for the brand as it enters yet another unique destination,” said GM Manish Puri. “This new opening will bring the Six Senses ethos of sustainability, local sensitivity, and wellness together with this region's desert culture and traditions.

“With a passionate team, we’ll work to create out-of-the-ordinary guest experiences in a setting of biblical proportions,” he explained.

The wellness offering will be complemented by facilities including an Earth Lab and an open-air amphitheatre, as well as an alchemy bar, gym, retail boutique and a studio with desert views suitable for group and private yoga, meditation and stretching sessions.
