Six Senses has announced its newest property slated to open in 2027. Located across two bays on a lesser-known Maltese island, Six Senses Comino will have a spa, farm-to-table dining, and an array of cultural, leisure, wellness, retreat and sporting activities.
Midway between Malta and Gozo, Comino is a small island with rugged cliffs scattered with wild herbs and flowers. Classified as a Natura 2000 site, its cliffs are a safe resting spot for migratory birds, and its waters protect abundant marine life, making it popular among divers.
Six Senses Comino will be located on the shores of San Niklaw and San Marija Bays, both enjoying sunrise aspects and linked by a coastal path. The two sites will be fully rebuilt within the existing area of the previous development using the least impacting construction methods. Designed by Belvedere Architecture, the 71 low-rise suites with private decks will overlook the bay and offer easterly vistas across the Mediterranean Sea. Double-aspect terraces on the upper two floors mean guests can follow the sun from sunrise yoga to a sunset cocktail. Infinity pools on the ground floor serve as private rock pools.
Guests will have exclusive access to San Niklaw Bay as well as a large communal swimming pool and deck area served by a bar and grill. The signature restaurant, supplied with fresh produce from the Maltese farming community, will be complemented by a destination bar and lobby bar. Grow With Six Senses will keep children and teens happy and off screens through the six dimensions of wellness (social, environmental, physical, spiritual, emotional and intellectual) while parents enjoy al fresco lunches or leaf through an old classic in the library lounge.
The 10,764-square-foot Six Senses Spa will offer locally inspired treatments, longevity therapies and personalized wellness programs.
A collection of 19 standalone retreats offering two to four bedrooms will be dotted along the east-facing shoreline. Each will have green roofing, a large garden and secluded central courtyard with a private pool. Offering access to all the facilities at the San Niklaw resort, the retreats will be serviced by a clubhouse with a restaurant and piazza with views over Santa Marija bay.
Situated between Malta and Gozo, Six Senses Comino is accessible from Malta through direct flights to Malta International Airport from all European cities, followed by a 15-minute boat transfer from Ċirkewwa Harbor.
