Six Senses to open first property in Italy
The Six Senses urban collection is heading to Rome, a treasure trove of artistic, cultural and architectural wonders. Following the brand’s entry into Singapore, New York and London, Six Senses Rome will live by all of its values with a particular emphasis on wellness, delicious food, community and sustainable design.
This is the first Six Senses property to open in Italy, with a planned late 2022 opening at Piazza di San Marcello in Rome – just blocks away from the Fontana di Trevi and Pantheon. Highlights include 95 uniquely furnished guest rooms and suites, a spa, restaurant, events terrace, outdoor courtyard garden and rooftop terrace.
Stay in ultimate accommodations just a stroll away from the prominent luxury shopping streets of Via Condotti, Frattina and Borgognona. Tucked around the back of the semi-pedestrian Via del Corso, the main Piazza di San Marcello is quieter than you might expect for such a prime location.
Protected by the Roman municipality and UNESCO listed, the main façade, which overlooks Via del Corso, is being restored back to its grand origins. The central staircase will also be preserved. The ground floor is a social floor for gatherings, meetings, performances and events. The open kitchen trattoria and bar will lead out to a gallery and seating area complete with travertine marble, oak and bronze. Outside will be a botanical garden filled with plants that promote well-being.
The central floors will house the guest rooms and suites, many with notably high ceilings. A key feature is the range of quirky room types, staying true to how Six Senses likes to keep things original. The crowning glory is the large rooftop terrace with panoramic views, complete with an organic fruit and vegetable garden.
The hotel’s main restaurant will offer a modern interpretation of Italian flavors, experience and hospitality, while following the Six Senses ethos of natural ingredients, local and sustainable and less is more. Seasonal food menus will be based on natural botanicals and courtyard garden-harvested greens paired with house-made bitters, tonics and tinctures.
With its calming vibe and contemporary design, the spa will house a range of treatment rooms, a fitness center and relaxation areas. The hotel will also host an Alchemy Bar for learning about the power of local herbs and plants in addition to an Earth Lab, which will focus on sustainable living.
The events terrace and outdoor courtyard add a social twist for guests wishing to spend moments of connection and conviviality together. The setting is also inspired for romantics wanting to post their best pose as the sun fades to provide a magical crepuscolo (twilight) background.
