Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas is gearing up for a mid-October 2021 opening of its first property in India.

Six Senses Fort Barwara has been developed within a 700-year-old fort overlooking the village of Chauth ka Barwara, in Rajasthan. Previously owned by the Rajasthani Royal Family, the fort was constructed in the 14th century by the Chauhans and sits opposite the temple of Chauth ka Barwara Mandir.

Six Senses Fort Barwara was initially slated to open in 2018, but will welcome guests from mid-October 2021 | Copyright © 2021 Six Senses

The 2.2 hectare site is encircled by an imposing 5-foot thick rock wall that rises up to six metres in some sections. Inside the historic fort, three buildings which traditionally accommodated the common, men’s and women’s palaces and two temples have been preserved and restored.

The historic fort has been sensitively preserved and converted and provides view of the lake and temple. The landscaping integrates purely endemic plants and water features. The property is working with the local community to rewild the forests to the east and revive the sacred lake to its former glory, Six Senses says.

Now, the landmark is home to the 48 suite Six Senses Fort Barwara and its two restaurants, bar and lounge, Six Senses Spa and fitness centre, two swimming pools, kids club and other facilities.

Guests will be offered daily safari drives to Ranthambore National Park (30 minutes drive from the resort), famous for its tiger population as well as leopard, nilgai, wild boar, sambar, sloth bear, rhesus macaque and other wildlife, birds and reptiles.

Six Senses Fort Barwara was first announced by the ultra-luxury hospitality company in 2017, and had initially been flagged to debut the following year.
