Heads up, Six Senses fans: the company has announced plans to develop an all-suite and villa resort in the southwest of Bali at Uluwatu, a 35-minute drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport.
Six Senses Bali, which is scheduled for completion by the end of 2017, will be set atop a rugged cliff, sharing the ocean views with the island’s famed Uluwatu Temple.
Designed by PT Cahaya Warna Prima with environmental sustainability in mind, the property will include 28 sky villas, 62 one-bedroom villas and seven two-bedroom villas designed to embrace both nature and the local culture. The top-tier Retreat Villa will be set atop a prominent knoll with sweeping views of the ocean and the resort. Two restaurants, a pool bar and a specialty restaurant with chef’s table, cooking school and organic garden are also planned.
The property's Six Senses Spa will offer locally-inspired specialty treatments together with an extensive menu of signature therapies, ranging from multi-day wellness programs to rejuvenation therapies and detox, as well as a selection of activities and complimentary morning yoga.
In addition to the Six Senses Spa, on-site activities will include a large central pool and a gym. An event lawn and a ballroom, two meeting rooms and a wedding pavilion will play host to get-togethers. The resort’s own Balinese temple will add to the tranquil setting.
Six Senses Bali will include an Experiences Center that can arrange visits to everything that the island has to offer, from sightseeing excursions, to cultural events plus over and underwater activities.
Uluwatu is perhaps best known for Pura Luhur Uluwatu, one of the six key temples believed to be Bali’s spiritual pillars, renowned for its magnificent location, perched on top of a steep cliff approximately 250 feet (70 meters) above the sea. Several archaeological remains found here prove the temple to be of megalithic origin, dating back to around the 10th century.
