Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas’ first property in India will open its doors in Rajasthan in late 2018.
Situated 110km south-east of Jaipur, the 48-suite Six Senses Fort Barwara is located in the village of Chauth ka Barwara on the site of a 700-year-old fort.
Six Senses will soon welcome its first property in India
Six Senses Fort Barwara will mark the second heritage property under the the brand’s portfolio, following Six Senses Douro Valley in Portugal, according to president Bernhard Bohnenberger.
The Bangkok-based hospitality company is currently working with Espire Group to restore the fort to its former glory. Panika, a design consultancy led by Nimish Patel and Parul Zaveri who are known for their conservation work, will oversee the architectural design.
Focus will be placed on reinterpreting the regal ambience of Rajasthan’s royal forts and places in the property’s landscape concept. The design will include traditional gardens, water features and Shekhavati art to reflect the fort’s storied history.
The property will feature a Six Senses Spa, located in the original women’s palace, in addition to two restaurants, bar and lounge, fitness centre, two swimming pools, banquet space, retail boutique and kids club.
It will also offer daily safari drives to the 1,400km2 Ranthambhore National Park, a sanctuary famed for its tiger population located 30 minutes away.
