“Helping people to reconnect with themselves, others and the world around them is at the centre of all that we do. We bring a holistic approach to our food, beverage, wellness, sustainability and out-of-the-ordinary experiences. The idea is that the guest returns home better than when they arrived,” says General Manager Dominic Scoles.
Through the Eat With Six Senses philosophy, Six Senses Botanique will bring out the best of the region’s cuisine and seasonal produce, starting with “Farm to Table” herbs, fruit and vegetables grown in the resort’s own organic gardens and farm.
Nowhere is the local influence more evident than in the spa, which currently features four treatment rooms, beauty salon, floatation pool, sauna and steam room with rainforest mist. There is also an isotonic pool with the same amounts of salt and other oligo elements found in the human body. New treatment rooms, relaxation and wellness areas, as well as a fitness centre will be added later this year.
The Alchemist’s Body treatment is an interactive workshop guided by an expert Alchemist. It teaches guests about the abundant, locally sourced ingredients and products, opening their senses to the various textures and extraordinary aromas as they create their own scrub and body mask that will be used in their treatment afterwards.
They can also set more time aside to reset with a wellness takeover through a choice of Wellness Days including: Boost Your Immunity to build a strong body; Mind Your Brain to improve mental clarity; and Love Your Heart to achieve deeper self-connection and harmony.
The property currently offers seven suites in the main hotel and 11 private villas dotted in the hills around it. A further 16 villas are planned, constructed off-site in a modular manner using local materials and sited to minimize their impact on the surrounding flora and fauna. There will also be 37 branded residences, again constructed using an eco-friendly modular approach, available for purchase off-plan.
Six Senses Botanique will appeal to guests seeking an eco-retreat in nature along with authentic Brazilian design, culture and cuisine. The property is blessed with seven water springs providing guests with their own mineral water. There is a water treatment station to return clean water back to nature. Mindful of making responsible decisions, the resort team also works with community members to see how they can contribute to a better quality of life for everyone, while preserving and celebrating local traditions and culture and the beautiful natural environment surrounding the property.
