November 18, 2021 - “Our latest urban project is not just a collection of individual hotel rooms but a vibrant community and mutual enjoyment of the rooftop bar, library, boutique, Earth Lab, and lounge areas,” says CEO Neil Jacobs on upcoming Six Senses Lisbon.
Opening in 2025, Six Senses Lisbon will add a second prime destination to our Portuguese portfolio after Six Senses Douro Valley, which has recently won acclaim in the World category of Spa Resorts in the Condé Nast Readers’ Choice Awards.
Enjoying seamless access to the city on the doorstep, Six Senses Lisbon will span the restored and converted 17th-century Palácio Lavra and the remarkable Palácio de Pedrosas. Adjacent to the famous Elevator do Lavra funicular railway, Six Senses Lisbon is close to all the city’s cultural highlights including the Coliseu and Politeama Theaters and, for fashionistas, the emblematic Liberdade Avenue is just a few meters away.
In archeological terms, more of Lisbon’s rich history is being uncovered every day as you’ll see when you wander through the steep cobbled streets of bohemian Bairro Alto. Or head up the river to glorious Cascais to taste fresh petiscos and dip in fresher Atlantic waters along the wild and untamed Serra de Sintra coastline.
The Palácio de Pedrosas was built in 1764 for an Italian merchant and then later sold to the Portuguese postal service. The restoration is a journey through time with pieces acquired by the original merchant still in situ, along with classic and modern art, book collections, antique rugs, maps, and handmade textile sculptures.
The huge room proportions, large windows and doors, and high ceilings give the hotel a breezy and contemporary flow. The suites feature separate fitted kitchens and outdoor terraces with a dining area and comfy sofas, perfect for a relaxing escape at the end of a busy day shopping or visiting the city’s attractions.
The ground floor of the adjacent Palácio Lavra has the aesthetic of an artist’s atelier, complete with carved wooden counters and handmade tapestries. Rooms are decorated in warm and earthy tones to envelop guests in comfort, with traditional Portuguese touches such as hand-painted ceramics.
In the main communal areas, the soaring ceilings, playful candelabras, exotic frescos, sculptural features, and lush artisanal palette add to the friendly elegance of the space.
The generous outdoor spaces include a rooftop terrace with views over the city. There is also a private central garden featuring vine-covered glass atriums, cozy corners, and communal seating to enjoy a morning coffee or relax over a sundowner.
Six Senses Spa will blend signature therapies and wellness programs for guests and locals alike. Along with eight treatment rooms, there will be indoor and outdoor wet areas, a fitness center, a dance studio, and a yoga pavilion set up for aerial yoga. The tinctures and detox mocktails brewed at the Juice Bar work their magic on the inside while the natural botanicals blended at the Alchemy Bar take 10 years off the outside.
Our CEO is keen to highlight the differentiated service standards within our urban approach. Translating our vision into an urban environment enables unique communities of residents, hotel guests and members to come together in iconic landmarks in the world’s prime downtown addresses.
“Much thought is given to how lively and vibrant areas flow into stillness and serenity to offer energizing and restorative sensations; a perfectly balanced environment where positive energy can flow and possibilities can grow. Layered onto this are lifestyle opportunities, experiences and a level of hospitality and service that guests tell us they look for: a dedicated on-site team and personal Guest Experience Makers, private catering, in-residence spa treatments and catered event planning.”
