Six Senses is set to open a property in Tel Aviv in late 2025, following the 2021 opening of Six Senses Shaharut in the Negev Desert.
Six Senses Tel Aviv will occupy a modern 42-floor tower, which will be connected at ground level to five 110-year-old preservation buildings. These will be located at the edge of Rothschild Boulevard and stretch across an entire city block between Rothschild, Herzel and Lilienblum Streets.
The LEED platinum-certified tower will house the ten floor, 140-key Six Senses hotel along with 55 serviced residences located on the 21 floors above.
Facilities will include two floors of spa and wellness facilities, a pool on the 17th floor with a cocktail lounge, and a restaurant, café and bar.
Additionally, the hotel will have a range of public spaces, including a lobby atrium which will serve as a “plaza between the preserved buildings”. There will also be a ‘Six Senses Place’, which the brand describes as a “new kind of social and wellness community with dedicated space for reflection, growth and reconnection”.
Contemporary interiors by Orly Shrem will include classic and clean lines, natural materials and a warm colour palette.
Six Senses CEO Neil Jacobs said:
“Tel Aviv is one of the most happening cities in the world right now. To understand it, you have to experience it, from its innovation hub to its creative and arts scene, its café culture, and its ingenious Israeli chefs. It is enormously exciting to have the chance to not only be part of this city but to lay our foundation stone next to its foundation stone.
“We’re building the vision for Six Senses Tel Aviv together with Tidhar Group, one of the leading Israeli real estate groups, which means we have passion and purpose running through the property, from the pioneering wellness programming at Six Senses Place to your Sabich served by the sky pool.”
Note that the deal is subject to customary regulatory approvals.
The brand will also open its first London property this year, housed within the former Whiteley department store in Bayswater.
Six Senses Hotels, Resorts and Spas was acquired by IHG Hotels and Resorts in 2019, and plans to open hotels in cities including Rome, Bangkok, Dubai, Lisbon, and Kyoto in the next two years.
