Six Senses launches sleep initiative
Resort group Six Senses has launched a sleep initiative, Sleep with Six Senses.
The initiative has already been introduced at six of the group’s resorts and will be rolled out to all its properties by the middle of 2017. Sleep with Six Senses was developed in collaboration with Dr Michael J Breus, a diplomate of the American Board of Sleep Medicine.
The initiative begins with an online questionnaire before arrival, to ascertain the guest’s sleep patterns and help the Six Senses sleep ambassadors provide the guest with the tools they need for the best possible sleep.
The sleep ambassadors have been trained in sleep excellence by Six Senses and by Dr Breus and are tasked with helping adjust the hotel room to the guest’s stated sleep preferences – among other things.
New elements have been introduced into the resort group’s bedrooms, as part of Sleep with Six Senses.
The include biodegradable mattresses from Naturalmat, made from 100% natural and sustainable material, organic duvets and pillows from Hanse and organic cotton sheets from Beaumont & Brown.
The new additions are all designed to aid good, deep sleep. Guests who wish can also upgrade to a package that includes a Sleep Bag with additional sleep aids. The Sleep Bag package incorporates Withings Aura Sleep Tracker, among other features.
The app collects sleep data that is fed through to the Six Senses team and later reviewed with one of the group’s Integrated Wellness Practitioners.
Sleep with Six Senses is currently available at Six Senses Laamu in the Maldives, Zighy Bay in Oman, Douro Valley in Portugal, Zil Pasyon in the Seychelles, Yao Noi in Thailand and Ninh Van Bay in Vietnam.
Six Senses Alpine Suites Courchevel in France will introduce the programme in December, with the roll out continuing in 2017.
