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.
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.
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.
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.
