Six Senses to debut in downtown Rome in 2023

By Wednesday, 09 November 2022 09:38

Rumors had it that the launch of the property was set for the fourth quarter of this year, but the official communication now places the debut of the new Six Senses Rome at the beginning of 2023. (Reservations are already open, Ed.).

The Eternal City’s urban resort will be the brand's first property in Italy, a green oasis on the central Via del Corso created by the conversion of the 15-century Palazzo Salviati Cesi Mellini.

The cocciopesto technique

The hotel will have 96 rooms and suites decorated with the cocciopesto technique, a special plaster that was used in ancient Rome, local travertine, and graphic elements with nature themes. The well-ventilated areas, sunny terraces, high ceilings, and large windows will put the emphasis on well-being and conviviality.

The façade has been restored to its former glory

As a result of the restoration the original facade of the building and the monumental staircase have been restored to their former glory. The front of the nearby church of San Marcello al Corso, one of the best examples of Italian Baroque, was also recently restored and is the Six Senses Rome's first sustainability project, with the goal of redeveloping the area. The hotel’s interiors are contemporary in style, with sustainable architectural and design elements, ornamental plants, natural light and airy spaces and the concept is yet another example of Patricia Urquiola's vision.

A café and a rooftop bar

The ground floor will have the Bivium Restaurant-Café-Bar with a show kitchen, Josper grill, and wood oven. The menu, curated by executive chef Nadia Frisina, will feature traditional regional fare and strictly seasonal ingredients. The Notos Rooftop, located on the top floor, will have a menu of tastings and drinks and stunning 360-degree views of the city. 

Recreating the ancient Roman baths

In a 60-minute journey, the indoor spa will recreate the ancient Roman baths, complete with a calidarium, tepidarium, and frigidarium. It will also have a Hammam, biohacking and meditation areas, sauna, outdoor yoga terrace, fitness centre, and five treatment rooms, including one for couples. The Alchemy Bar will provide an opportunity to learn about the therapeutic properties of herbs and plants.The Six Senses Rome is also preparing exclusive behind-the-scenes experiences for its visitors to discover such magical places as Palazzo Colonna, Galleria Borghese and Doria Pamphilj. Painting masterclasses will also be available. 

“We will bring a new concept of luxury to the city”

“I am honored for this opportunity, and proud that Six Senses will make its Italian debut in my city,” says general manager Francesca Tozzi. “Our mission is to bring a new concept of luxury to the city as well as out-of-the-ordinary experiences, while respecting and enhancing the local community through a fun and unconventional approach.”
