Quattro resort ispirati alla natura a formare un progetto unico nel piccolo regno himalayano
The company has designed a unique project in the Himalayan kingdom that brings together five satellite resorts in separate locations, but all under the umbrella of a single name: Six Senses Bhutan.
The total collection will comprise 82 suites and villas distributed between the five lodges, enabling guests to experience Thimphu, Punakha, Gangtey, Bumthang and Paro.
Each location has been designed with a “specific and appropriate theme”. For example, the resort in Thimphu, the Bhutanese capital, has a cultural theme showcasing local building materials and handicrafts, while the forest location of Bumthang focuses on a woodland theme and features buildings and furniture made using recycled timber.
In Punakha, the resort is designed to resemble a traditional rural farmhouse, and the retreat in Gangtey features a chalet with a bird-watching bridge. Finally in Paro, the Six Senses resort has been built on the site of old stone ruins. Working fireplaces have been introduced to these buildings, which the company says will act as “community-gathering spots in which to share tales… with fellow travellers in the warmth of an open fire”.
Due to open in the second half of 2017, Six Senses Bhutan will mark another step in the company’s Asia Pacific expansion strategy; the company is also planning to make its debut in Fiji and in Cambodia next year.
Six Senses currently operates 11 resorts and 28 spas in 19 countries, but is planning to triple its portfolio over the next five years.
