Six Senses Hotels Reports Spas is known throughout Asia for its luxurious accommodations, rejuvenating experiences, and exceptional hospitality in exotic destinations. Now, the Thai hotelier has its eyes set on the Western hemisphere: It plans to open its first Caribbean resort, Six Senses St. Kitts, in 2021, it announced today.

"We are thrilled to add St. Kitts to the Six Senses portfolio of resorts in incredible settings," said Six Senses President Bernhard Bohnenberger. "Six Senses St. Kitts will be a remarkable resort."

Located on St. Kitts -- the larger of the two-island country of St. Kitts and Nevis -- the beachfront resort will occupy the site of a former sugar cane plantation, which arriving guests will traverse on their way to the resort's reception area. It will have 70 villas that guests will reach via electric buggy, each of which will have a private plunge pool, a Naturalmat natural fiber mattress, complimentary wireless internet, energy-efficient lighting and air-conditioning, and a flat-panel television with satellite TV service.

A food-and-beverage "plaza" will offer several dining choices -- including a bar specializing in rum-based concoctions -- while an onsite spa will feature treatments from Six Senses' signature spa menu, as well as treatments based on Caribbean healing traditions.

Other amenities will include a main pool with a swim-up bar, a teen center and kids' club, a dedicated yoga pavilion, a gym, and a certified dive center offering underwater excursions for both beginners and experts. 

"We are excited to welcome Six Senses to St. Kitts," said Mohammed Asaria, founder of Range Developments, the resort's developer. "Six Senses was recently voted the world's best hotel brand by Travel +Leisure magazine and we look forward to working together on this exciting project."
