The space to flourish

by posted in NEWS

Once we have found the location, what do we build on it? Designing healthy spaces starts with responsible architecture and making sound choices for our buildings, materials and operating practices.

We work closely with pioneering engineers, architects, interior designers and healers to ensure we’re not just preserving the health of our locations, but incorporating health into our building and design practices too.

The first project was completed at Six Senses Douro Valley under the expert guidance of Alberto Alfonso Amura. Combining his knowledge in advanced environmental radiesthesia and bio-geometry, with ancient environmental sciences including feng shui and reiki, Alfonso identified the impact of underground streams, geological disturbances and energy flow. Once on site, he searched for any stagnant spots where the property’s chi needed correcting and also assessed the open landscapes and gardens. Alberto was delighted that the quinta (main building) provides a healthy warm center, which grounds the property. As a whole, the location enables positive energy dance and flow, combined with the adjacent terraced vineyards, bountiful gardens, forests and the graceful Douro River.

Biophilic (love of nature) principles are at the heart of the spa design at Six Senses Spa Courchevel. By re-establishing the bond between nature, human biology and the built environment, the resulting benefits include stress release, enhanced creativity and clarity of thought, and improved well-being.

Six Senses Fiji which opens in April will be 100 percent solar powered and the first microgrid in Fiji to use Tesla batteries. There is also tree reforestation project on site to offset wood use in construction.

At Six Senses Spa Manama Bahrain, which will open later this summer, it is the mystical underwater world that is the inspiration for many of the spa’s features, producing a powerful yet healing atmosphere. The spaces have organic shapes and curved lines exuding warmth and comfort. The journey mirrors the different energies of city life, from the sensory stimulation and movement of the street to the stillness and calm of a quiet park. This achieves spaces that are both relaxing and re-energizing to achieve wellness, fitness and a total escape.

We strive to create places in which you (and our planet) thrive – come and see them in action!
