Hosts at Six Senses Fiji, many returning to their previous roles, are ready to welcome guests back to their little corner of paradise from April 1.
Their familiar friendly faces will serve as the perfect antidote to months of lockdowns and travel bans as new arrivals step off the speedboat.
Picture-perfect Backdrop for Every Smile
Located on Malolo Island, the largest of the Mamanuca Islands, Six Senses Fiji is surrounded by gently shelving crystal-clear waters accessed from a palm-fringed white sand beach. The re-opening is timely, with the Easter holidays and short breaks on the horizon, as well as prime conditions for surfing and diving starting from April onwards. With pent-up demand at a premium, the resort has been humbled by the reaction and interest to its opening. It is already full for the entire first month and operating on a waitlist-only basis.
Multi-bedroom Residences for Celebrating Special Moments
The past two years have forced many families and groups of friends to miss out on celebrating milestone birthdays, weddings, births, and graduations. The residences, which feature between three and five bedrooms, are designed to bring everyone together. They include a fully equipped kitchen, private living area, expansive private pool, and outdoor seating and entertaining space. Those looking for a self-sufficient vacation will enjoy in-villa dining and sundowners, personal yoga, and eight hours of complimentary babysitting per day. Those seeking the convenience of the resort amenities can choose from the three restaurants, gourmet deli, cooking school, and a host of activities that can be arranged by the dedicated Guest Experience Maker.
Turquoise Playground for Water Babies
From beginners to pros, the resort offers watersports for all skill sets. Paddleboarding, kayaking, and swimming are unlimited (as long as guests return in good time for cocktail hour). Beginners’ surf lessons take place within the safety of the private bay or nearby Swimming Pools wave, and expert surfers can head out to the world-famous Cloudbreak just a 20-minute boat journey away. For those seeking a serene nature immersion, the resort has spent extensive time working on coral replantation. This dedication has paid off, resulting in a beautiful snorkeling experience right off the Six Senses Fiji beach. Fiji is also revered the world over for some of the best dive sites. Introductory sessions can be carried out in the guest’s private pool and there are options to complete the PADI or SSI dive courses at a plethora of sites rich with colorful corals, clownfish, lionfish, reef sharks, and more, all within a 10-minute boat ride.
Sustainable Living and Dining
All residences, villas, and facilities are designed to be 100 percent solar-powered by the largest microgrid in Fiji to use Tesla batteries. Many ingredients for the three restaurants – Tovolea, Rara, and Teitei – as well as the deli, ice creamery, Alchemy Bar, and spa, are grown fresh in the resort’s gardens, which are thriving or sourced from local farmers and fishing communities. The hens at Cluckingham Palace are match-fit to ramp up egg production, and the beehives, Mushroom Hut, and Water Bottling Plant are also in full working order. Guests walking along the winding boardwalk through the trees might catch a glimpse of one of the friendly Fijian Crested Iguanas in their natural habitat.
SSet in lush jungle, Six Senses Spa Fiji is a contemporary take on a traditional Fijian village with a layered approach to wellness and treatments that go beyond the ordinary. The extensive signature menu includes best-loved treatments such as the Fijian Bobo Massage using warm poultices of herbs picked from the spa garden to increase circulation and ease muscle tension. For guests wishing to take a deeper inner focus, one-, three-, five- and seven-night wellness programs focus on specific issues such as brain health, immunity, yoga, sleep, and fitness. Ayurvedic treatments are also available, overseen by Spa Director Deepak.
