Six Senses plans to enter the United Kingdom for the first time with a 110-guestroom hotel near Hyde Park and Kensington Palace. Six Senses London is set within the former Whiteleys department store and also offers branded residences.
“I feel nostalgic when talking about Whiteleys. I grew up in the neighborhood and my parents used to bring me here. It is a wonderful opportunity to pay homage to this heritage and bring our brand values to life in this part of town, while celebrating our first port of call for Six Senses in the United Kingdom,” said Neil Jacbos, CEO, Six Senses Hotels Resorts and Spas.
Plans for the property include a cozy lobby bar and lounge, all-day restaurant and large social spaces. Design incorporates imaginative planting, textured fabrics, bespoke flooring, reclaimed wood furniture and natural tones.
The Six Senses Spa takes its design cues from the style of vintage London underground stations. Spa highlights include a relaxation room with vaulted ceilings, alchemy bar, 65-foot indoor swimming pool and fitness space totaling 3,500 square feet.
“Six Senses London will be a first, not only having best-in-class spa and amenities, but also a new kind of social and wellness club unlike anything we have seen in London or for that matter, in a new development. We identified Six Senses as the ideal partner for the Whiteleys redevelopment with wellness at its core and also experiential pioneering programs. These are things which will be at the heart of the new Whiteleys offer and we look forward to creating something really incredible together,” said Alex Michelin, co-founder, Finchatton (the building’s development manager).
