Six Senses is also adding two standalone spas to its portfolio in the Middle East. Six Senses Spa Dubai will open in February 2018 in the Renaissance Downtown Hotel, and will include treatment suites that are each dedicated to a different sense. Holistic therapies and sensory experiences are based on sound, sight, touch, taste, smell and intuition.
Six Senses Spa Manama will open in Bahrain in mid-2018, located on the 9th and 10th floors of the Wyndham Grand Manama. The spa will be set against a theme of a mystical underwater world, with textures and materials inspired by the features and curves of the pearl.
The spa experience aims to mirror the different energies of the city life, from the sensory stimulation and movement of the street to the stillness and calm of a quiet park.
