Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas will expand to Central America under a partnership with The Canyon Group. To be designed by London-based architect, John Heah, Six Senses Papagayo will be located on the Papagayo Peninsula, offering 24 kilometres of pristine coastline and beaches sprinkled with hotels and residences.
Slated to debut in 2021, the property will consist of 41 pool villas and 31 residences.
The highlight of the resort will be the Six Senses wellness programming, which includes a beautiful spa, fitness center and a myriad of relaxing activities. There will be an organic farm located in the heart of the property offering fruit, vegetable and herb gardens that will inspire the chef’s menus and the resort’s signature spa treatments.
“We are very excited about our first project in Central America,” said Chief Executive Officer Neil Jacobs of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas. “Our own values epitomise Costa Rica’s commitment to sustainability and the essence of Pura Vida (pure life) culture. Everything starts with the question of preserving the natural and cultural heritage of Costa Rica while enhancing social and economic benefits. If we can’t answer it, we don’t do it. Wherever we are in the world, this sensitivity – and acting on it whole-heartedly – has catapulted Six Senses to being consistently voted Top Brand in the World by Travel + Leisure magazine.”
Six Senses Papagayo is owned and under development by The Canyon Group, a business that acquires or develops boutique, ultra-luxury resorts in unique destinations. Included in the group’s core portfolio is the famed Amangiri resort in Utah and Amangani resort in Wyoming.
