Six Senses has announced its latest project in Lisbon, its second property in Portugal after Six Senses Douro Valley in the heart of the country’s wine region. Six Senses Lisbon will expand the brand’s urban collection and follows the news of upcoming properties in Rome, New York, London, and Bangkok.

Part of the IHG Hotels & Resorts family, Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas manages 19 hotels and resorts and 27 spas in 19 countries under the brand names Six Senses, Evason and Six Senses Spas, and has signed a further 34 properties into the development pipeline.

“What emerges from our latest urban project is not just a collection of individual hotel rooms but a vibrant community. The offering includes differentiated service standards too, with a dedicated on-site team and personal Guest Experience Makers, private catering, in-room spa treatments and catered event planning.”

Neil Jacobs

Chief executive officer, Six Senses

Six Senses Lisbon

The new investment project will convert the 17th-century Palácio Lavra and adjacent Palácio de Pedrosas into a 114-room property. The design is said to feature outstanding craftsmanship and comfort with natural materials and light used to ensure seclusion and privacy on the inside as well as seamless access to the city on the doorstep.

Six Senses Lisbon will feature a contemporary and fresh look, juxtaposed with exposed classic architecture and traditional Portuguese furniture. The generous room proportions, large windows and doors, and high ceilings give the hotel a modern feel with space and light.

The spa at Six Senses Lisbon

The 1,000 sqm Six Senses Spa will blend signature therapies and wellness programmes designed for both guests and locals. Along with eight treatment rooms, there will be indoor and outdoor wet areas, a fitness centre, 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.

“We are fortunate and grateful for this opportunity to bring the essence of the two palácios back to life, joining forces with the professional Six Senses team."

Jaime Ardid Martínez-Bordiú
