Six Senses Resorts and Spas to open its first resort in China


Six Senses Resorts and Spas is delighted to announce that it is to open its first resort in China. The new property will be called Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain.


Bernhard Bohnenberger, Six Senses Resorts & Spas, Deputy Chairman said, ‘This is a very proud moment for me and the whole Six Senses team. We couldn’t be more pleased to be developing a new Six Senses resort in this beautiful area of China.’


Six Senses is immensely proud of its reputation for creative, innovative design and for the development of award winning luxury resorts of the highest level. As important as luxury is a total commitment to social and ecological responsibility. Supporting and protecting the environment and the local community is at the very core of Six Senses philosophy and an integral part of the design and development process.  All building materials will be sourced locally where possible and be from natural, sustainable sources. Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain will be designed to sit empathetically with the local terrain, complementing the landscape. As with all projects, the development of the resort will follow the strictest guidelines with an aim to achieving LEED certification.


Qing Cheng Mountain in Sichuan is a UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage site and an area of great historical importance in Taoist history. The concept of the resort will embrace Taoist and Chinese architecture and design principals, whilst retaining Six Senses signature of intelligent luxury, a simple and contemporary feel.


Six Senses resorts can be found in some of the most sought after areas of outstanding natural beauty in the world – Thailand, Vietnam, Oman and the Maldives. Sitting at the bottom of Qing Cheng Mountain’s 36 peaks and surrounded by woodland and tumbling waterfalls, Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain will be no different. As with every resort, there will be a Six Senses Spa, offering signature Asian treatments along with those inspired by the immediate area.


Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain Resort & Spa, a Botanic Sanctuary Property, will open in 2013.
