Six Senses Uluwatu opens in Bali with locally-inspired rituals

Six Senses has begun welcoming guests to its Uluwatu, Bali resort.

The resort, comprised of 28 “sky suites”, 62 one-bedroom villas and seven two-bedroom villas, is set on cliff top near the Uluwatu Temple and overlooking the Indian Ocean.

Locally-inspired treatments such as the Balinese Healer ritual and Lulur Body Scrub with Yogurt Splash and Herbal Bath make up the treatment menu at the 1,079sq m spa, and there are multi-day wellness programmes and detox therapies available, as well as complimentary morning yoga.

Other facilities include a large pool with bar, gym, two restaurants and cooking school, with an organic garden planned.

The resort will also have an Experiences Centre where guests can arrange island excursions and cultural activities.

The next Six Senses resort set to open will be in Bhutan, where three of the property’s lodges – Thimphu, Punakha and Paro – will start taking guests from November 3.

Six Senses Singapore Duxton, the brand’s second city hotel, is due to open its doors in October.
