Superbly set at the picturesque gateway to China’s majestic Qing Cheng Mountains, Six Senses welcomed the latest property to its portfolio.
Created to complement the UNESCO World Heritage & Natural Cultural site at nearby Dujiangyan, the resort is situated in the land known as the homeland of the Giant Pandas.
Sitting west of the Sichuan Basin, the resort is less than a one-hour drive from the regional capital of Chengdu and 48 miles from Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport.
Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain offers 113 guest accommodations ranging from semi-detached suites in duplex villas with balconies and verandas, to courtyard suites, and garden and pool villas.
Drawing upon the village theme, accommodations provide great flexibility.
For example, a collection of four suites may open on to a central courtyard, enabling them to be individually occupied or grouped into a private community compound for friends and family.
Design aesthetics are a brilliant amalgam of the inimitable Six Senses approach of clean, uncluttered and organic, together with the undeniable senses of place amplified by rich cultural elements.
Antique Chinese-inspired, locally-made furniture and exposed beams impart traditional heritage touches.
Finely panelled walls are complemented by classic rattan fittings and accents, creating a calmative symphony of lightness and space.

With waterfall and garden views from the ten treatment rooms, the spa features a selection of locally-inspired specialty treatments plus an extensive menu of signature therapies.
There is something for everyone, from multi-day wellness programs to rejuvenation therapies and a selection of activities such as yoga and tai chi.
