Six Senses The Palm, Dubai marks a new milestone for the brand

Six Senses will enter the UAE market in 2024 with a 61-room hotel and 162 branded residences along a private stretch of beach on Palm Jumeirah’s West Crescent in Dubai.

The project is the result of a management agreement signed between Six Senses, real estate developer and investment company Select Group and joint venture partner Emirates Strategic Investments Company (ESIC).

At the core of Six Senses The Palm, Dubai, will be a 5,574sq m social and wellness club named Six Senses Place. The club will be crowned with a Six Senses Spa inspired by textured coral reefs and bathed in natural light. Biophilic design elements will also encourage natural circadian rhythms throughout the design.

The wellness menu will focus on recovery treatments and reconnection programmes to help guests, members and residents progress on their journey to optimal wellbeing.

The spa will be complemented with a longevity clinic, IV lounge, biohacking room, massage circuit pool, squash court and workout spaces.

Additional leisure spaces will include a central garden, pool, library, a selection of restaurants and bars, a kids’ club, games room and meeting rooms.

Commenting on the brand’s foray into the UAE market, Six Senses CEO Neil Jacobs said: “Six Senses The Palm, Dubai marks a new milestone for the brand as it enters this remarkable destination.

“From the bottom of the ocean to the signature rooftop bar, our concept celebrates the natural beauty of the Gulf, the solidarity and hospitality between host and visitors, and the journey that Dubai has been on, with its unique Emirati traditions and bubbling optimism for the future.”

Hotel and residences

Similar to the spa, the LEED-certified Six Senses hotel and residences are being conceived with an architectural narrative inspired by coral reefs.

Features will include undulating rooflines, silhouettes and cellular facades resembling coral’s natural form. This will create outward-looking environments that are shaded and protected from the sun.

The residential offering will include 162 branded residences including Penthouses, Royal Penthouses, and duplex Sky Villas.

There will also be nine five-bedroom beachfront Signature Villas, each offering a garden, infinity pool and views to the beach.

The residences will respect the natural landscape through colour and texture, completed by an understated yet sophisticated material palette of renders, stones and metals that reflect the marine environment that surrounds the site.

Along with the spacious and landscaped green areas, residents will have access to the hotel’s facilities and various leisure, sports, business and recreational facilities such as a micro farm, tennis courts, padel courts and running tracks.

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

Six Senses also recently signed a hotel management deal with The Red Sea Development Company, the developer behind the ambitious regenerative tourism project The Red Sea Project.
