September 7, 2020 - From milestone celebrations to weddings and other heart-melting moments – whether surrounded by family or just the two of you – we’re not just passionate about the delicious food on your plate but the mouth-watering views in front of you too!
This is a tough category to call because all of our hotels and resorts boast best-dressed dinner backdrops so let’s go high!
At an elevation of 9,843 feet (3,000 meters), with our head in the clouds, our highest Bhutan lodge Six Senses Gangtey is strategically positioned to offer an expansive 180-degree view of the Phobjikha Valley below. This intimate “Birdwatching Bridge” is the central gathering point for dining with unsurpassed viewing of the native black-necked cranes in their native habitat below.
When it comes to culinary offerings, the lodge’s signature restaurant Baa Zam – “bridge” in Dzongkha – features hearty western and locally-influenced dishes, such as the Charred Pumpkin Risotto made with local short grained white rice and Bjobchee Takthuk, a signature Bhutanese pasta-like dish made with organic potatoes and buckwheat from the valley.
The lodge is intimate, offering just eight spacious and beautifully-appointed suites, each with a valley-facing, panoramic and private outdoor balcony and equipped with daybeds and enough pairs of binoculars to avoid family squabbles. There is also a two-bedroom villa with its own private spa treatment facilities designed to pamper and relax. The design is inspired by Bhutanese farmhouse architecture and incorporates local stone and hand-hewn timber.
Staying high, Six Senses Yao Noi has its eyes focused on delivering the best sundowner-sipping spot in Southeast Asia. The Hilltop is the resort’s crowning glory, situated at the highest point overlooking the renowned limestone karsts of Phang Nga Bay. The design is inspired by the nest of our resident Oriental Pied Hornbills. From wood and woven bamboo elements to egg-shaped cushions and lamps down to fine details such as the eggshell-textured finishing of the bar, the Six Senses creative team has combined design elements, color schemes and materials to evoke a bird’s nest perched on a treetop.
The Tasting Room is a plastic-free environment sourcing ethical produce. The locally grown, progressive western cuisine follows the Eat With Six Senses ethos of natural ingredients, local and sustainable and less is more.
At the pool, you will be able to indulge in a range of salads and options from the grill while sipping their favorite cocktails and working on that island vacation tan. For casual dining, the newly fitted bar serves crudo, tapas style, alongside herb-based and locally infused sundowners.
At Six Senses Zighy Bay, Sense on the Edge is our hilltop restaurant serving signature cuisine and evening views over the crystal waters of the Gulf of Oman. Our Andalusian chef adds a Spanish twist to regional flavors in menus of up to nine courses. Sensations include fresh caught red mullet with pimenton de la vera scrambled eggs, chives and panko crunch (pair with a Bonterra Sauvignon Blanc) and Short Ribs with smoked potato cream and celeriac (pair with a Fusion Alta Malbec).
Perched on private terraces above the restaurant, our Moonlight and Starlight tables are all yours for exceptionally romantic dinners and other wonderful celebrations. Enjoy a breathtaking starlit view from the top of our resort while indulging in culinary artistry and some of the finest wines this world has to offer. We'll propose the menu; you can propose, well, you know...
Another blissful backdrop is waiting for couples at Dining on the Rocks, our award-winning restaurant set on a headland above Six Senses Samui. With 10 terraced decks of weathered teak and bamboo, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to the best seat in the house, although we’re rather partial to Table 99 or 100. You’ll come for a glass of champagne while watching the sun dip into the horizon. You’ll stay for the food, much of which is sourced locally by Head Chef Sandro Teixeira. If you would like to meet up with Sandro, your GEM will be happy to arrange an informal catch-up.
Sala Thai at Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain showcases the best Thai menus highlighting produce from the resort’s own organic farm here in Chengdu, China! Featured dishes, served in traditional style, are from the Chiang Mai and Phuket regions. Choose from spicy scallops with Thai herbs, Thai green curry with beef, crispy lobster with tamarind sauce, the chef’s special Thai Suki hot pot, or the ultimate “One Night in Bangkok” experience for two. Talking of twos, our worst-kept secret is our best-kept table in the house, where the private rooftop terrace – The View – opens out onto our eponymous and mighty mountain.
Set right on the cliff edge on the southernmost Bukit Peninsula in Bali, the aptly-named Cliff Bar at Six Senses Uluwatu (literally translated as Land’s End) offers delicious sushi, stir-fries, tempura and freshly oven-baked specialties combining Southeast Asian spices with traditional pizzas and homemade pastas. The drinks deserve a shout out too: try our house kombucha, purpleroot snow, chipotle margarita or banana-colada.
OK we’re cheating a bit here. This last entry is actually down at sea level. However, we feel the view from the sandbank at Six Senses Laamu – especially when you’re the only occupants bar the odd crab – stands up to its lofty rivals! The experience actually starts on the calm waters of the Laamu Atoll, as you set sail on a traditional wooden dhoni with a local fisherman towards a prime fishing spot to lure a fish. Once caught, the fish is prepared with a little lemongrass and ginger, wrapped in a banana leaf and barbecued for a lunch on a deserted sandbank. No big stories, just simplicity, which is arguably the most difficult outcome of all …
