Six Senses Rome to Open on March 16

Six Senses Rome is set to open its doors in the historical Palazzo Salviati Cesi Mellini on March 16. This milestone also marks the complete renovation of the façade of the adjacent San Marcello al Corso Church—the first sustainability project sponsored by the hotel. Francesca Tozzi returns to her hometown—after a three-decade absence—to lead the hotel as general manager.

From Cocciopesto on the walls to the extensive presence of Travertine local stone, the nod to Roman traditions is evident throughout the hotel’s 96 guestrooms and suites, with some featuring Triclinium-style marble seating on their terraces. In-room technology is incorporated along with homemade and organic mattresses, cotton bedding, pillows and additional amenities to promote a good night’s sleep. With a selection of 12 accommodation categories, including three individually designed signature suites, the many options include secluded rooms with courtyard views and suites facing the bustling Via del Corso and neighboring San Marcello al Corso Church. 

Menus foster a strong link with local culinary traditions, whether at the all-day dining BIVIUM Restaurant-Café-Bar or up high on NOTOS Rooftop. Besides the Roman Empire-inspired five-course tasting menu, dishes include plant-based, meat, fish and sweet classics with Sicilian touches to honor the Executive Chef’s home favorites. The restaurants make innovative use of natural and seasonal ingredients sourced from local farmers and suppliers.

Throughout the Palazzo housing Six Senses Rome guests can find the "monumental" marble staircase with its decorative skylight, the newly restored 600-year-old columns in the main entrance, and a large baptismal bath dating back to the fourth century uncovered during archeological excavations at the beginning of the 1900s that is now visible beneath the glass floor tiles in BIVIUM Restaurant-Café-Bar. The classical elements of the Palazzo blend with the contemporary, sustainable design by architect Patricia Urquiola. 

A sanctuary of wellness, Six Senses Spa Rome offers a holistic experience. The 60-minute Roman bathing circuit is a modern-day take on the ancient ritual, reproducing the calidarium, tepidarium and frigidarium to reduce inflammation and muscle recovery by heating the body up and then cooling it down. It is a sociable and immersive experience for balancing mind and body. Treatments ranging from results-driven personalized facials to signature body massages are expertly performed using premium products by Biologique Recherche, Seed to Skin, Organic Pharmacy and Subtle Energy. In-house experts guide guests on their path to wellness with high-tech and high-touch therapies such as biohacking, sound therapy, body cocoons and breathwork. Other highlights include the healing herbal Hammam and sensory immersions at the Alchemy Bar.

Good to know: Guests can learn about the hotel’s sustainability efforts in the dedicated Earth Lab while building their knowledge through interactive talks and hands-on workshops.
