Former sugar cane plantation to be home to Six Senses St Kitts

by Jane Kitchen | 09 Mar 2018

The Eastern Caribbean island of St Kitts will be the newest destination for Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas. The luxury resort brand has partnered with Range Developments, which specialises in developing luxury Caribbean resorts, to complete the Six Senses St Kitts resort over the next three years.

Set on the site of a former sugar cane plantation fronting the Caribbean Sea, the resort will include 70 pool villas with sea views and a Six Senses Spa, which will overlook a nature reserve.

An Alchemy Bar – first developed at Six Senses Spa Douro Valley in Portugal – will be an extension to spa personalisation. There will be a dedicated pavilion for yoga and a fully-equipped gym in addition to a spa boutique, which will offer products exclusively developed for Six Senses.

Guests will arrive at the resort through the old sugar cane plantation, passing the organic garden to the reception area before being transported by their GEM (Guest Experience Maker) to their villa by electric buggy.

The 70 villas, all with private plunge pools, will be created using sustainable and repurposed materials juxtaposed with contemporary comforts.

“We are excited to welcome Six Senses to St. Kitts,” said Mohammed Asaria, founder of Range Developments. “Six Senses was recently voted the world’s best hotel brand and we look forward to working together on this exciting project.”

“We are thrilled to add St. Kitts to the Six Senses portfolio of resorts in incredible settings,” added Bernhard Bohenberger, Six Senses president. “And working in partnership with Range Developments, who have exceptional expertise and experience in the Caribbean, Six Senses St. Kitts will be a remarkable resort. The ease of access from the United States is also a very positive factor as this market is increasingly embracing the quintessence of Six Senses.”
