Six Senses Resorts Hotels Spa has released a sneak peek of its debut property in Israel, Six Senses Shaharut. Located in the Negev Desert, the luxury resort will open in June.
Six Senses Shaharut is intimate in nature, comprising just 60 suites and pool villas. The design aims to bring guests into harmony with nature by reinforcing the relationship between inside and outside in a seamless way.
A modern reinterpretation of nomadic structures, the villas are built from, and inspired by, local rocks and pigments, with the landscaping featuring indigenous desert blooms. Exterior lighting is designed to avoid light pollution at night. Inside, the furniture and fittings use natural stone, wood and copper, and the furnishings are sourced from a partnership with local artisans.
Six Senses Shaharut will offer uplifting experiences including sunrise yoga workshops, immersive local community experiences, late-night stargazing, hikes and camel treks through the Negev desert and the ancient Incense Route.
Trips further afield can be arranged to Petra, Masada, Mount Karkom and the Dead Sea.
