Six Senses has announced it is to expand into Italy with the opening of Six Senses Rome.
The property will be located in the Palazzo Salvoati Cesi Mellini on the Piazza di San Marcelo, close to the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon. The 95 room and suite property will open in late 2021.
It will also feature a spa, restaurant, events terrace, an outdoor courtyard garden and rooftop terrace. The terrace will have panoramic views of the city, while also home to an organic fruit and vegetable garden.
The main facade of the property, which is protected by the Roman municipality and UNESCO listed is sin restored back to its origins, while the hotel’s central staircase will also be preserved.
Neil Jacobs, Six Senses’ chief executive said: “As stewards of such a cultural and historical site, we are responsible for celebrating its past and conserving its potential for future generations." “It also speaks to my heart. I studied culture and art in Florence and feel at home in Italy. This is more than a building to me. It is a human project, which is why we are teaming up with the architects and designers who feel as passionate and excited as I do. We want this to be a place of harmony and connection for our guests, sprinkled with a lot of love.”
