A peaceful haven nestled in the beating heart of the Eternal City, Six Senses Rome opens its doors in the historical Palazzo Salviati Cesi Mellini on March 16, 2023. This milestone also marks the completed renovation of the magnificent façade of the adjacent San Marcello al Corso Church, the first sustainability project sponsored by the hotel. “After almost three decades away from my hometown, it is a joy to be back to lead such an incredible project,” says Francesca Tozzi, General Manager of Six Senses Rome. “It makes my team and I feel very proud to open the first urban Six Senses property in Italy. We are working hard so our guests can experience memorable stays in an authentic, fun, and quirky ambience.”

From Cocciopesto on the walls to the extensive presence of Travertine local stone, the reverential nod to Roman traditions is evident throughout the hotel’s 96 guest rooms and suites, with some featuring the iconic Triclinium-style marble seating on their terraces. At the same time, state-of-the-art, in-room technology is subtly incorporated along with the groundbreaking Sleep With Six Senses standards of bespoke homemade and organic mattresses, cotton bedding, pillows, and additional amenities to promote a good night’s sleep. With a selection of 12 accommodation categories, including three individually designed signature suites, the many options include secluded rooms with courtyard views and suites facing the bustling Via del Corso and neighbouring San Marcello al Corso Church.

Enjoying a prime position within the UNESCO world heritage site of Rome’s historic centre, Six Senses Rome is the brand’s first hotel to open in Italy. The fifteenth-century Palazzo Salviati Cesi Mellini has been restored to its grand origins to house 96 guest rooms and suites and serve as a green oasis a few steps from iconic landmarks, including the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain. The all-day dining and lifestyle area on the ground floor offers a modern Italian menu with a Roman nod, and the sun-kissed rooftop terrace treats guests to panoramic views over the historical neighbourhood. Six Senses Spa brings its trademark wellness formula to life through the tradition of ancient Roman bathing, with further highlights including five treatment rooms (one for couples), a hammam, biohacking, and meditation rooms, an outdoor yoga deck, and a fitness centre.
