Six Senses Fort Barwara, a sensitively restored 14th-century fort and India’s definitive wellness sanctuary, celebrates its first anniversary in October 2022.

Originally home to a Rajasthani Royal family, Six Senses Fort Barwara reinterprets the gracious and regal ambience of a forgotten era dating back 700 years. Significant conservations efforts of over a decade transformed the fort into a luxury resort and retreat of well-being, with the original women’s palace serving as pioneering Spa and Wellness centre, offering extensive ayurvedic treatments and personalised wellness programs. Perched on the majestic Aravallis and thirty minutes from the Ranthambore National Park, the royal citadel offers a spectacular view facing the Chauth Mata temple. The historic property features three dining venues, a bar and lounge, 30,000 square foot Six Senses Spa and 48 beautifully appointed suites including five marquee suites with stunning views.

Now, Six Senses Fort Barwara is all set to ring in its first anniversary with a host of exciting celebrations, which will include cocktails at sundowner, followed by a gala night with folk music and cultural performances and cake cutting ceremony at the iconic stepwell.

Speaking on this occasion, Frans Westraadt, General Manager, Six Senses Fort Barwara expressed, “It has indeed been a very exciting journey so far and it will continue to be so, with a uniquely compelling story and meaningful experiences that Fort Barwara has to offer to travelers. As we celebrate our first-year anniversary on October 16 at the resort, we look forward to embarking on an enriching journey into 2023 together with our guests and Six Senses Fort Barwara family.”

Six Senses Fort Barwara takes guests on a journey of discovery based on how deep they want to go in the pursuit of well-being.
