Health Resort, Relaxation Retreat, Sleep Program - Six Senses

What's it all about?

Experts range in their suggestions as to the amount of sleep that should be taken, with a rough consensus recommending that at least one third of a person’s life should be dedicated to this most pleasurable of pastimes. But even if you are getting the required amount of shuteye, you may not be getting the optimum quality.

Guests holidaying at Six Senses resorts should have the opportunity to enjoy the best sleep imaginable. Created in close cooperation with internationally renowned Sleep Doctor Michael J. Breus and a team of related experts, this program is dedicated to sound sleep.

Fundamental to the guest room setup are items that have been carefully selected and tested by a team of Six Senses experts. Handmade mattresses by Naturalmat are made from 100 percent natural materials sourced from sustainable resources and are fully biodegradable. They are complemented by Hanse organic pillows and duvets which feature natural breathing and cooling zones to ensure the perfect temperature during sleep. High quality organic cotton sheets are made by Beaumont & Brown, and toweling and bathrobes are from Madison Collection.

Benefits

Too many people put up with a sleeping environment being much less than desirable. Inferior mattresses and bed linens, sound pollution that distracts from the goal at hand and lighting that hinders the effort. Even attempts to count sheep can be an obstacle if the mind becomes active and separates the flock into colors and gender, or indeed the whole flock has passed over the fence before sleep has occurred!

When the sleep fundamentals are in place the results will be amazing. Sleep makes you feel better, but its importance goes way beyond just boosting your mood or banishing under-eye circles. Some of the benefits of good sleep are an improved memory, more sharpened mind, healthy weight, lower stress levels and better focus. In fact, good sleep has a profound effect on your overall lifestyle quality.


Sleep Experience Upgrade

Building upon these quality basics, those who wish to learn more about improving their quality of sleep can upgrade their sleep experience. 

Sleep With Six Senses starts with an online questionnaire that helps us to understand the relationship that you have with sleep and based on this information, we’ll provide you with tools and tips on how to improve the quality of your sleep.

Each guest who selects the sleep upgrade is assigned a Sleep Ambassador. Our Sleep Ambassadors are individuals who have excelled in a training program created by a passionate group of leaders at Six Senses under the leadership and guidance of Dr. Breus. They fine-tune your room prior to arrival to ensure all preferences are noted and prepare your bedroom each evening to ensure optimum sleep conditions. They are also on call each day to assist and provide support.


Enhancing Your Sleep

The package includes a Sleep Bag, Valley Forge moisture-wicking linens and a Withings Aura Sleep Tracker/App. The results from the sleep app are reviewed with the Six Senses Integrated Wellness Practitioner during a 30-minute personal consultation. Based on the results, the wellness practitioner may recommend a personalized program of spa treatments and activities to help improve sleep. 

The Sleep Bag contains a selection of specially developed and sourced sleep aids including bamboo fiber pajamas, SHOKAY eye mask, ear plugs, nose strips, nasal neti pot and jasmine sleep spritzer. There is the choice of a bathroom amenity from The Organic Pharmacy and the Six Senses Little Book of Wellness which includes a worry journal section to jot down thoughts that may keep guests up at night. The bag also includes a thumb drive loaded with Six Senses videos providing a wealth of sleep suggestions and professional guidance for better sleep featuring Dr. Breus. 

There are also several additional items provided on request to boost your sleep.  There’s the Sound + Sleep Ecotones Machine that produces 30 high-definition sound profiles from nature, such as sounds of ocean, rivers, and meadows to white noises; specialty pillows for the body, side and back by Naturalmat; a dehumidifier/humidifier to complement air-conditioning to perfect personal climate control; and a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) Rack. 

In advance of departure, you will be provided with sleep tips and details on how to purchase any of the products you used during your stay to prolong the quest for a good night’s rest when home.
 

Sleep With Six Senses upgrade is priced at:

USD 165 or EUR 150 for one guest / USD 225 or EUR 200 per couple for the first night

Guestroom Essentials

The personal environment of your guestroom is the first step to achieving better zzzz’s. From your mattress to bed linens, pillows and amenities, Six Senses is in the process of making these items standard throughout the group. There are also several technology aids that are available to enhance the experience, available on request.

The first Six Senses resorts to introduce Sleep With Six Senses guestrooms in November 2016 are Six Senses Douro Valley in Portugal, Six Senses Zil Pasyon in the Seychelles, Six Senses Zighy Bay in Oman, Six Senses Yao Noi in Thailand and Six Senses Ninh Van Bay in Vietnam. Other properties will follow and all new properties will open with the complete experience.

The Bed

As the foundation of your sleep experience it is essential that the mattress is perfect, turning your bedtime into bliss time. The Six Senses mattress is handmade in England by Naturalmat. It is constructed using lambswool that has been treated with essential oils, making them naturally hypoallergenic and ideal for asthma and allergy sufferers.

The coir fiber used in the mattress comes from organically grown and processed coconuts from a fair trade initiative farm, while the latex is from the world’s only certified organic rubber plantation. So, while retaining the necessary firmness, your mattress will contour beautifully around your body.


Pillows and Duvets

Six Senses chose Hanse for their high quality, organic pillows and duvets, and the workmanship used in their products.

In addition to being non-allergenic, organic and sustainable, Hanse pillows and duvets are resistant to dust mites due in part to the excellent thermal and climatic conditions that create a poor habitat for these little creatures. The tight weave of the fabric casing also acts as a barrier preventing the mites from passing through.

The unique construction features a three-tier chamber that prevents flattening so the items retain their lightweight aspect and provide ideal conditions for a comfortable sleep. Humidity from body moisture rapidly disappears with airing of the bedding.


The Linen

Beaumont & Brown was selected to supply the organic cotton sheets for Six Senses bedding. Their top quality fabrics are woven from long-staple cotton that is expertly spun into superfine yarns by specialist weavers in Shandong Province. Once woven, the raw fabric which has a smooth hand and a thread count of 300 is sent on the roll to Nantong where it passes through various finishing processes. From here, the newly finished fabric is inspected for quality control and then cut and hemmed with precision and care by the expert production team. Beaumont & Brown identify and understand every step in their products' manufacture and journey and are proud of the standards they maintain, as they say - from the thread to the bed.

As an upgrade, guests may opt for Valley Forge moisture wicking bed linen which is derived from Tencel+Plus Eucalyptus Fiber expertly blended with long staple cotton to create a luxurious collection that wicks heat and moisture away from your body to create a cleaner and healthier sleep environment. Tencel+Plus is designated BioPreferred by the USDA and is FKT medically tested for toxins. The eucalyptus component is from rapidly renewable eucalyptus trees and is converted to fiber using a non-toxic solvent that is 99.6 percent recovered and reused in a truly sustainable production system.


The Technology

When upgrading your sleep experience, a Withings Aura Sleep Sensor is provided to help measure and analyze your sleep. It uses ballistocardiography to measure variations induced by respiration rate, heart beats and the body’s movements during the night. It does this with clinical accuracy to analyze the structure of your sleep, as well as the presence in the bed and the number of wake-ups per night. The Withings Health Mate App then helps you visualize your full sleep cycles on your smartphone, assess your sleep, discover what wakes you up, compare nights, and get insights to improve your sleep quality.

Then there is the Sound + Sleep Ecotones Machine that produces 30 high-definition sound profiles so you can drift asleep listening to relaxing sounds of nature or white noises.


Sleep Amenities

The Sleep Bag contains a selection of specially developed and sourced sleep aids including bamboo fiber pajamas, SHOKAY eye mask, ear plugs, nose strips, nasal neti pot and jasmine sleep spritzer. There is the choice of a bathroom amenity from The Organic Pharmacy and the Six Senses Little Book of Wellness which includes a worry journal section to jot down thoughts that may keep guests up at night. The bag also includes a thumb drive loaded with Six Senses videos providing a wealth of sleep suggestions and professional guidance for better sleep featuring Dr. Breus.
