Heartfelt welcome to Six Senses Botanique

February 11, 2021 - Oh we do love new openings! Welcome to Six Senses Botanique in the Mantiqueira Mountains, Brazil. Known as the “mountains that weep” there is nothing to be sad about as we welcome our latest green gem.

  • Sixsenses.Botanique.Mainbuilding.2.Final

Six Senses Botanique showcases its surrounding beauty from lush, mid-tropical Atlantic mountains and forests. Located 2.5 hours from São Paulo and 3.5 hours from Rio de Janeiro, the resort lies at the confluence of three river valleys in the heart of the Mantiqueira Mountains. These are known as the “mountains that weep” due to the abundance of springs and rivers.

But there’s nothing to be sad about. After three months of training centered around our brand standards and values, our hosts cannot wait to showcase out-of-the-ordinary experiences and emotional hospitality, with the Six Senses integrated pillars of sustainability and wellness at the heart of the operation.

The first phase focuses on gastronomy and wellness – with new menus at Restaurant Mina, a new Fire Side lounge menu, an exclusive eight-course gastronomic journey paired with wines from the resort's select Adega, a reconnection experience with an artisanal outdoor picnic, and pioneering therapies at Six Senses Spa.

“Helping people to reconnect with themselves, others and the world around them is at the center of all that we do. We bring a holistic approach to our food, beverage, wellness, sustainability and out-of-the-ordinary experiences. The idea is that the guest returns home better than when they arrived,” says General Manager Dominic Scoles.

Space to flourish

The property offers seven suites in the main hotel and 11 private villas dotted in the hills around it. A further 16 villas are planned, constructed off-site in a modular manner using local materials and sited to minimize their impact on the surrounding flora and fauna. There will also be 37 branded residences, again constructed using an eco-friendly modular approach, available for purchase off-plan.

Epicurean delights

Through Eat With Six Senses, our food and drink philosophy, we will bring out the best of the region’s cuisine and seasonal produce, starting with “Farm to Table” herbs, fruit and vegetables grown in the resort’s own organic gardens and farm.

Mina, the resort’s signature restaurant, offers modern, contemporary Brazilian dishes and 180-degree views of the mountains and valleys, with the suspended fireplace warming the dining room and rich wood floors underfoot.

The new Fire Side lounge features a variety of drinks prepared with home-grown probiotics and a tonic with ingredients harvested from the surrounding vegetable gardens. It is a perfect setting to enjoy the weeping mountains while sampling local cheeses and cold cuts, house-made coxinha, or fresh grilled vegetables that were still in the ground moments before.

The Adega (Wine Cellar) journey begins in our fireplace sala, starting with a toast of bubbles with Chef Gabriel Broide as he explains the custom eight-course menu for the evening. Paired with a carefully curated wine list and candles, the atmosphere is ideal for celebrating special moments or simply the joy of living.

Six Senses Spa

Nowhere is the local influence more evident than in the spa, which currently features four treatment rooms, beauty salon, floatation pool, sauna and steam room with rainforest mist. There is also an isotonic pool with the same amounts of salt and other oligo elements found in the human body.

The Alchemist’s Body treatment and interactive workshop, guided by an expert Alchemist, teaches you more about the abundant, locally inspired and sourced ingredients and products. Open your senses to the various textures and extraordinary aromas as you create your own scrub and body mask that will be used in your treatment afterwards.

You can also allow time to reset with a wellness takeover through a choice of Wellness Days including: Boost Your Immunity to build a strong body; Mind Your Brain to improve mental clarity; and Love Your Heart to achieve deeper self-connection and harmony.

Sustainable luxury

Six Senses Botanique will appeal to guests seeking an eco-retreat in nature along with authentic Brazilian design, culture and cuisine. We’re blessed with seven water springs inside the property so we're able to provide our guests with our own mineral water (the best drink in the house!). We have a water treatment station so we can return clean water back to nature. Mindful of making responsible decisions, we also work with community members to see how we can contribute to a better quality of life for everyone, while preserving and celebrating local traditions and culture and the beautiful natural environment surrounding us.
