Six Senses Hotels has confirmed its debut in the United States with the signing of Six Senses New York.
A luxury hotel being developed by HFZ Capital Group in New York City, it is situated between Manhattan’s popular High Line and the Hudson River.
The extraordinary setting combined with an exciting new development project makes this an idyllic ‘urban home’ for the first US hotel project for Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas and its flagship urban property, as announced today by chief executive Neil Jacobs.
“This project is a fascinating and exciting contrast to the typical Six Senses locations where we operate resorts in settings with azure waters, UNESCO heritage listings and lush rainforests,” commented Jacobs.
“Six Senses New York will have the same touch-points and DNA, with some creative adaptation of course, but with no compromises on our commitment to community, wellness, sustainability and design.
“We are delighted to be partnering with HFZ on this fabulous urban development.”
The development project by HFZ Capital Group is located on 10th Avenue, comprising the entire block between 17th and 18th Streets in the heart of the city’s vibrant and artsy Chelsea neighbourhood.
The overall project, named The Eleventh, features two soaring towers designed by award-winning architectural and design group Bjarke Ingels Group.
The hotel will be located in the east tower directly adjacent to the High Line with ten floors and 137 keys.
A popular New York City landmark, the High Line has helped transform the area into a must-see destination for both locals and tourists.
Hotel accommodations will begin at a generous 400 square feet (37 square meters) to enable Six Senses New York to deliver the high level of personal service and lifestyle quality for which the brand is synonymous.
Spas are an integral part of the Six Senses brand.
Six Senses Spa New York will offer a layered approach to wellness with treatments that are an intuitive mix of science and human awareness, where a high-tech and high-touch approach defines service that is crafted around the individual.
Two restaurants will be located in the hotel and showcase the brand’s popular culinary approach to wellness by serving fresh, seasonal and locally-sourced produce and ingredients.
Plans are also underway to create a unique private members club within the hotel and innovative meeting space to cater to small groups and board meetings.
