December 11, 2020 - (D)rum roll! Six Senses announces Six Senses La Sagesse, Grenada, which is set on a headland on an island known for its spice and relaxed lifestyle. The resort and residences prioritize sustainability, wellness and experiences.
Set to open in late 2022, the resort and residences are spread over 28 acres (11 hectares) and laid out using the natural topography of the land, with great effort given to ensuring space, privacy and uninterrupted views over the turquoise sea.
The resort will offer 56 guestrooms, seven one-bedroom villas and five two-bedroom villas, with no building higher than a palm tree. Influenced by the region’s traditional architecture, the design language mimics a Caribbean village bursting with variety along the lakefront promenade and beach. The walkways through the gardens are made of repurposed nutmeg shells and cocoa skins, maintaining the connection to Grenada’s “Spice Island” heritage.
Never a dull moment
The Experience Center is a community hub for booking spa treatments, watersports or excursions, browsing the beachwear in the Boutique, learning about the healing benefits of botanicals in the Alchemy Bar or relaxing in the Library.
The sprawling landscape caters for the active, complete with outdoor fitness trails and jungle gym, and for the more reflective, with quiet locations for meditation, forest bathing, labyrinth walking, sensory foot reflexology, fire rituals and candlelight yoga.
There’s a teen’s lounge and children’s play center as well as Grow With Six Senses activities, where children are invited to reconnect with nature and gain useful life skills through play.
Natural, local and responsibly sourced
The dining experience at the Great House is different each day thanks to a flexible series of rooms including a Conservatory, Bakery, Gallery and Beach Dining room. There is also a private dining room and Raw Bar with display kitchen. The Signature restaurant serves a mix of local, Creole-inspired dishes including plant based and locally foraged menus. Couples and small groups can create their own backdrop thanks to destination dining options including a beach blanket BBQ or Chef’s Garden experience. There’s also in-villa dining for staying in with a beautifully presented dinner or movie night.
A spa for all seasons
Six Senses Spa at La Sagesse is uniquely set overlooking the lagoon, designed in the style of a traditional fishing village. In-house experts and Visiting Practitioners will integrate local community knowledge and draw upon age-old local traditions and the healing benefits of indigenous plants and herbs to offer a menu of specialty spa and beauty treatments, Holistic Anti-Aging Center, Caribbean healing traditions and rejuvenation journeys.
In line with the brand’s commitment to sustainability, Six Senses La Sagesse will operate on a self-sufficient and plastic-free basis. Ingredients for the restaurants and spa will be picked from the abundant kitchen gardens, herb gardens and native fruit trees and seafood will be sourced from local fishermen. The landscaping strategy also promotes mangrove enhancement and restoration, with the aim for achieving a wildlife habitat that visitors can experience under the guidance of conservation research partners. There’s also an Earth Lab, which will run workshops for learning first-hand about the natural world and how to lighten your footprint in it.
A world of their own
Crowning the bluff to capture the Caribbean breeze and 270-degree views are a handful of contemporary residences available for purchase. These three- and four-bedroom green-roofed homes are carefully and individually sited into the dramatic hillside within 21,500 square feet (2,000 square meters) of landscaped gardens. Each has a 56-foot (17-meter) horizon-edge pool and wrap-around pool decks.
