There’s been a lot of buzz about the new Six Senses lodges opening in Bhutan this year, along with Krabey Island in Cambodia. But those aren’t the only destinations where the brand will be expanding. In fact, Six Senses will debut seven new resort and two spas in 2018. One resort that’s crossed our radar is the Six Senses Uluwatu, opening in a superb clifftop setting in Bali. Slated to debut in Pecatu in March 2018, the resort will be close to the famous Uluwatu Temple, an ancient and important spiritual place on the island. Like the temple, the Six Senses Uluwatu will have sweeping views of the sea.
Built with local materials and based on sustainable design, the resort will have 103 villas and suites, including options of one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom accommodations. We’re intrigued by the sound of the 28 “Sky Villas.”
Resort attractions will include multiple swimming pools, a cooking school, organic garden/farm and locally inspired treatments at the Six Senses spa. Multi-day wellness and detox programs are expected to be a draw here, with an added perk being the complimentary morning yoga sessions. The Six Senses Uluwatu is also expected to host destination weddings and events, with an open-air pavilion and ample function space.
