Manhattan’s always hot hotel scene is heating up with a number of high-profile openings. The latest to announce a property in New York is Six Senses, the Bangkok-based hospitality brand renowned for its spas and tropical resorts. This will be the first U.S. first property for Six Senses, and this “urban flagship” will have a prime location between the High Line and the Hudson River.
The Six Senses New York will be a focal point of The Eleventh, a development by the HFZ Capital Group which includes two contemporary towers designed by the architectural/design studio BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) with stone and metal facades. LEED certification is an objective.
The Six Senses New York will occupy 10 floors in the East Tower next to the High Line. There will be 137 guestrooms, a high-tech spa, two restaurants, and meeting/event space. The anticipated opening will be in 2019.
With a portfolio of 11 resorts and 28 spas in 19 countries under the brands Six Senses, Evason and Six Senses Spas, the company aims to the triple its number of properties over the next five years.
