A circuit of lodges in Bhutan. A resort in Fiji. A first city hotel, located in Singapore. A private island in Cambodia. A resort on the Turkish Riviera (that was previously under the auspices of Canyon Ranch). Six Senses—which currently operates 16 hotels and resorts, plus 30 spas in 21 countries—is nabbing the headlines lately. Not only does the hospitality brand have plans for a luxury beach resort in Brazil—it also recently announced a new hotel in Bangkok. In fact, Six Senses aims to triple its portfolio over the next five years with openings in the pipeline in diverse destinations like Austria, India, Israel, Spain, Taiwan, and St. Kitts and Nevis.

Here’s the skinny on the new urban hotel in the Thai capital, which is an agreement with international property developer Magnolia Quality Development Corporation Limited (MQDC). Located at The Forestias on Bang Na-Trat Road, a sustainably designed, mixed-use development with 40 percent forest cover and measuring over 5 million square feet, the Six Senses hotel will have 60 guestrooms. It will also include 36 branded residences and the company’s first membership club in Asia, which will allow the community to experience the hotel’s health and wellness amenities. 

The green technology used in development of The Forestias goes hand-in-hand with Six Senses’ own eco-minded philosophy. The Forestias will also include an office building, community center, 4-star business hotel, residences and condominiums, a medical complex, a "town center" and, of course, a forest.
