Nestled amidst the enchanting Arabian desert, Six Senses Southern Dunes at The Red Sea officially opens in Saudi Arabia. Envisioned by the renowned British architectural firm Foster + Partners, the resort seamlessly blends into its surroundings, with 36 guest rooms and 40 pool villas strategically placed to offer breathtaking views of the dunes and wadi. The design not only captures the eye but also reflects a commitment to eco-friendly practices, utilizing locally sourced materials and incorporating the vibrant colors and patterns inspired by traditional Bedouin dress.
Six Senses Southern Dunes aims to become the first LEED Platinum resort in Saudi Arabia. The resort generates its electricity through a solar farm, ensuring a minimal ecological footprint. Plastic-free policies extend to the on-site water plant, providing still and sparkling water, while the Earth Lab engages guests in playful workshops that highlight the importance of conservation.
True to the Eat With Six Senses ethos, the resort’s gastronomy focuses on locally sourced ingredients, celebrating the flavors and aromas of the region. With four restaurants, a cooking school, a private chef’s table, and a Gelato Pod, guests are treated to a diverse and delightful culinary experience, blending wellness with indulgence.
Adventure-seekers and wellness enthusiasts alike will find solace in the plethora of outdoor pursuits and wellness activities. From meditation and yoga sessions in the desert to cultural heritage experiences showcasing Saudi Arabia’s rich history, the resort offers a diverse range of activities that cater to every taste.
The Six Senses Spa, with its honeycomb walls mirroring the dunes’ undulating patterns, is a sanctuary for relaxation and rejuvenation. From Rasul treatments in the Frankincense Suite to an Alchemy Bar creating clean skincare products, every aspect of the spa is designed to connect guests with the rich history and fragrances of the region.
Accessing this desert oasis is made convenient with a 45-minute private car transfer from the new Red Sea International Airport. Alternatively, guests can opt for a domestic flight from Yanbu Airport, followed by a two-hour transfer to the resort.
