Six Senses has chosen another beautiful, far-flung destination for its next resort: the island of Malolo in the archipelago of Fiji. The island country is comprised of 332 islands in the South Pacific, and Malolo has the crystal clear waters and white sandy beaches that one associates with this tropical paradise.
Slated to open in 2017, Six Senses Fiji is situated on a 2,100-foot stretch of secluded beach facing the bay. Previously, the resort development was known as Vunabaka, but now Six Senses has taken over management. Access is via a 40-minute boat journey or 10-minute helicopter/seaplane flight from Nadi International Airport.
There will be 26 pool bures (villas), ranging in size from 1,200 to 1,600 square feet, along with 60 luxury residences. All accommodations are equipped with private pools. The spa will be a star attraction here, offering a comprehensive wellness program created by a team of medical professionals. Restaurants will feature sustainably sourced ingredients from the resort gardens and local farms and fishermen.
Other facilities include a treetop yoga platform, a gym, a flood-lit tennis court, and a Kid’s Center. There will also be a number of water sports, like sailing, kayaking, and diving.
