Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas has announced the development of its first South American location, Six Senses Formosa Bay in Brazil, which is slated for completion in 2021.

Six Senses Spa Formosa Bay will include single and double treatment rooms, steam, sauna, and hammam, and will offer several Brazilian therapies in addition to the Six Senses menu of specialty treatments. Guests will also have the option to add on the Six Senses Integrated Wellness experience, which allows in-house experts to measure and analyze key physiological biomarkers in order to provide guests with lifestyle and nutritional advice and design a personalized program of spa treatments, fitness, and wellness activities based on the preventative principals of Eastern medicine and result-oriented Western influences.

“Six Senses is thrilled to be developing this fantastic venture with our project partner Greg Hajdarowicz, owner of Gremi International,” says Wolf Hengst, executive chairman of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas. “Our joint synergies and common values on sustainability, wellness and hospitality vision will allow us to create a varied and responsible atmosphere. We could not ask for a more superb site for a Six Senses development in this amazing country.”

Construction materials for developing Six Senses Formosa Bay will come from sustainable sources and repurposed materials. Throughout the property there will be three different groups of guest facilities with the access of dining options, bars, and swimming pools. Six Senses has also expanded the land on the south side of the property to create their own organic farm which will be the main source of food for the resort, in addition to goods from local farmers and the fishing community. The resort will have 73 one-, two-, and three-bedroom pool villas that will offer easy water access on the north side of the property. There will be 54 two- and three-bedrooms family villas that will focus on wellness. The southern section of the property will be available for private ownership and will offer 58 three-, four- and five-bedroom villas.
