Six Senses to manage new resort on Maltese island

Six Senses Comino slated for launch in the Mediterranean in 2027

Six Senses has been signed to operate a new resort on the island of Comino in the Mediterranean Sea, midway between Malta and Gozo.

Spread across two bays, Six Senses Comino will feature a resort and themed spa, farm-to-table dining, as well as cultural, leisure, wellness and sporting activities.

Comino is a small island with rugged cliffs scattered with wild herbs and flowers and bright turquoise waters, including the famous Blue Lagoon. Classified as a Natura 2000 site, its cliffs are a safe resting spot for migratory birds, and its waters protect abundant marine life, making it a paradise for divers.

Six Senses Comino will be located on the shores of San Niklaw and San Marija bays, both enjoying sunrise aspects and linked by a coastal path. The two distinct sites will be fully rebuilt within the existing area of the previous development using the least impacting construction methods.

“Six Senses Comino is an invitation to guests with a deep understanding and appreciation of the value of preservation and who are seeking mindful serenity,” said Neil Jacobs, CEO Six Senses. “We’re doing something unique within the Maltese hospitality landscape, which is to create a sumptuous and sustainable lifestyle resort on a reduced footprint to make way for new trees and shrubs and, therefore, a thriving environment for new guests and returning wildlife.”

Resort guests will have exclusive access to San Niklaw bay as well as a large communal swimming pool and deck area served by a bar and grill. The signature restaurant, supplied with fresh produce from the Maltese farming community, will be complemented by a destination bar and lobby bar.

The Six Senses Spa will offer locally inspired treatments, longevity therapies, and personalised wellness programs.

Designed by Belvedere Architecture, the 71 low-rise suites will overlook the bay and enjoy easterly vistas across the Mediterranean Sea from their private decks. The natural palette of stone and timber echoes the island’s geology and garigue shrubland within comfortable and spacious accommodations that feel like an extension of Comino’s beauty. Upper floors will feature terraces and ground floor accommodations will have infinity private rock pools.

A collection of 19 standalone retreats offering two to four bedrooms will be dotted along the east-facing shoreline, with green roofing to ensure harmony between the built and natural environment and stepped to follow the natural terrain. Each will feature a large garden and secluded central courtyard with a private pool. Enjoying access to all of the resort facilities over in San Niklaw, the retreats will also be serviced by a separate clubhouse featuring a restaurant and piazza with views over Santa Marija bay.

Six Senses Comino is accessible from Malta International Airport from all European cities, followed by a 15-minute boat transfer from Ċirkewwa Harbour.

The target opening date for the resort has been set for 2027.
