Six Senses has confirmed it will operate a new resort and residences in Grand Bahama, the northernmost of the islands of the Bahamas, and just over 100km for Palm Beach, Florida.
Six Senses Grand Bahama will be part of a project aimed to boost tourism while encouraging sustainability and regenerative activity on the island.
The resort village has been designed by architects 3XN, the same firm behind the new Sydney Fish Markets. The village will comprise 45 waterfront and canal villas with 732 metres of beach frontage and water on three sides. In addition to the guest accommodations, plans include a signature restaurant, beach venue, boathouse, and pool bar.
Neil Jacobs, CEO of Six Senses said of the project, “We’re eager to reflect the authenticity of Bahamian lifestyle, culture, and landscape through organic pathways and architectural design to create a community blended with our signature ethos of wellness, sustainability, crafted guest experiences, and emotional hospitality.”
The resort village will host an Experience Center along with artist studios, relaxed meeting spaces, a fitness centre and Six Senses Spa. In addition to the Earth Lab, there will also be a Marine Research and Dive Center focused on coastal resiliency, native plantings, and land restoration. Additional land and sea areas will be designated as preserves, further enhancing the local biosphere.
Six Senses Grand Bahama is understood to be one of a number of hospitality partners that will be part of the wider project.
Six Senses Grand Bahama is slated to open in 2026.
