Six Senses Brings Its Unique Style to The Caribbean

BANGKOK – March 5, 2018 – Steeped in legendary seafaring history dating back hundreds of years, the Eastern Caribbean island of St. Kitts is the newest exotic destination for Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas. The larger of the two-island country of St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Kitts lies in the northern part of the Leeward Islands group of the Lesser Antilles. Its volcanic origin created an 84-mile (135-kilometer) coastline of intriguing silver-grey sand beaches and a lush fertile interior with coconut groves and plantations.

The resort is set on the site of a former sugar cane plantation with gentle hills rolling down to a long stretch of sandy beach fronting the Caribbean Sea. All of the projected 70 pool villas and The Retreat enjoy sea views and an unspoiled environment that gives the glorious feeling of being isolated from civilization; a place where guests can reconnect with themselves, their families and loved ones and nature.

Guests arrive at the resort through an old sugar cane plantation, passing the organic garden to the reception area before being whisked away by their GEM (Guest Experience Maker) to their villa by electric buggy. In true Six Senses style, every aspect of the 70 villas all with private plunge pools are true to the Six Senses commitment to the environment, using sustainable and repurposed materials juxtaposed with contemporary comforts. Naturalmat mattresses support the Sleep With Six Senses initiative, while unlimited wireless internet access is offered complimentary, energy-efficient lighting and air-conditioning can be adjusted by iPad and flat-panel televisions offer a spectrum of satellite channels. 

At the food and beverage plaza guests have a choice of dining alternatives, with emphasis on the freshest seafood from the Caribbean and ingredients harvested on-demand from the resort’s organic fruit, vegetable and spice gardens and from local producers. True to the Caribbean’s tall tales of pirating, the Rum Shack will offer a treasure of rum-based refreshments that would delight any seafarer. And at the main pool, guests have the choice to swim up to the bar or lounge plantation-style with long thirst-quenching potions. Younger guests can choose fun activities at Grow With Six Senses (teen center and kid’s club), complete with playground and supervision. 

Overlooking the resort’s nature reserve, Six Senses Spa St. Kitts will feature a menu of Six Senses specialty treatments as well as Caribbean healing traditions and rejuvenation journeys, Six Senses Integrative Wellness, detox, yoga and workshops. An Alchemy Bar will be a fascinating extension to spa personalization, first developed at Six Senses Spa Douro Valley in Portugal. There will be a dedicated pavilion for yoga and a fully-equipped gym in addition to a spa boutique which will offer products and exclusively developed for Six Senses.

To the south of the resort is Sandy Point Town, the second largest town on the island. It is believed to be the landing point for the English sea captain, Sir Thomas Warner, in 1623. It was one of the busiest ports in the region. Sandy point is the entrance way to Brimstone Hill, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and just one of the many fascinating excursions that await history enthusiasts. 
At the resort there are a host of recreational pursuits on land and water, with an activities center able to arrange or to tailor-make memorable experiences for guests. A certified dive center offers excellent underwater encounters for beginners through to the most experienced. 

Six Senses St. Kitts is a project by Range Developments, which specializes in developing luxury Caribbean resorts, together with design creativity, management and marketing by Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas. The resort is scheduled to be completed over three years. 

“We are delighted that Range Developments is bringing another project and the unique brand of Six Senses to the country,” said Prime Minister of St. Kitts & Nevis, Dr. the Honourable Timothy Harris. “Range Developments is bringing investment, jobs and expertise to the citizens and residents of St. Kitts and Nevis. It is an amazing development for our small country to be the beneficiary of another luxury hotel brand so soon after the official grand opening of the world-renowned Park Hyatt on St. Kitts. This is a remarkable show of confidence by Range Developments in my government, our people and country. I commend Range Developments for the excellent relations we have nurtured, all for the ultimate benefit of the people of St. Kitts and Nevis.”

“We are excited to welcome Six Senses to St. Kitts,” said Mohammed Asaria, founder of Range Developments. “Six Senses was recently voted the world’s best hotel brand by Trevel +Leisure magazine  and we look forward to working together on this exciting project.”

On announcing the project, Six Senses President Bernhard Bohnenberger (BB) said, “We are thrilled to add St. Kitts to the Six Senses portfolio of resorts in incredible settings. And working in partnership with Range Developments, who have exceptional expertise and experience in the Caribbean, Six Senses St. Kitts will be a remarkable resort. The ease of access from the United States is also a very positive factor as this market is increasingly embracing the quintessence of Six Senses.”

Located on the western side of the island, the site for Six Senses St. Kitts is approximately a 30-minute drive along the scenic coast road from the capital Basseterre and the International Airport (SKB). The airport is served by direct flights from the United States, Canada and United Kingdom, with connecting and charter flights from Europe and regional services from several Caribbean nations.
