Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas has revealed plans to open its first resort in Switzerland.
Upon completion, the 47–room Six Senses Crans-Montana will operate under a long-term management agreement with 1875 Finance, one of Switzerland’s premier finance companies, representing the investors involved in the project.
The resort marks a significant milestone for Six Senses development and will be in one of the region’s most prominent ski areas.
Located in the canton of Valais, Geneva is located two hours away by car and train.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with 1875 Finance and are eager to expand our presence in Europe.
“This project will offer an amazing selection of outdoor activities including onsite ski-in and ski out access plus a rich wellness offering.
“The resort nicely complements Six Senses Douro Valley in Portugal, Six Senses Residences Courchevel in France as well as the seven award-winning Six Senses spas in Europe in Paris, Crete, Mykonos, Marbella, Gstaad, Courchevel and in the premium lounges of Etihad at London’s Heathrow Airport,“ said president Bernhard Bohnenberger of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas.
Resort accommodations include 47 guest rooms and suites, with 17 Six Senses residential units already available for purchase.
They include three-bedroom loft units and four-bedroom configurations which are being sold on-plan and marketed by Barnes.
They have the special Crans-Montana provision that allows 13 of them to be bought by foreigners as second homes.
This is one of the last construction projects in Switzerland that is able to offer residences for sale to foreigners.
Consistent with Six Senses sustainability focus, recycled, local materials will be selected by the architect and design teams and repurposed materials will be used in the manufacture of finishes including flooring, millwork and fabrics.
Energy and water conservation also plays a key role in the project’s design.
Six Senses Crans-Montana is slated to open in 2020.
