As sustainable and wellness holidays take precedence with travelers, the InterContinental Hotels Group, one of the world’s leading hotel companies, welcomes one of the leading wellness brands the Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas to its portfolio. Sitting at the top of IHG’s luxury portfolio, the acquisition is valued at $300m (£232m) from Pegasus Capital Advisors. The acquisition will take IHG’s portfolio of properties to 400 hotels (108,000 rooms) globally.
Six Senses properties are known for their sustainable wellness, with properties set in stunning locations across the world. With the new acquisition, the company adds 16 hotels and resorts, 37 spas and sister companies Evason and Raison d’Etre to its portfolio. Six Senses is already looking to expand its portfolio with 60 new properties in the next 10 years including the incredible 14th-century fort in Rajasthan, the Six Senses Krabey Island, in Cambodia and the soon to open Six Senses Ibiza, set to open in 2020 and the brand’s first hotel in North America, The Eleventh in Manhattan’s West Chelsea.
At the core of any Six Senses property is the brand’s commitment to guide its guest on a journey of personal health and wellness while adapting to a healthy and sustainable living lifestyle, during and after their stay at Six Senses.
