IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, has announced its acquisition of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas.

Six Senses is renowned for its focus on wellness and sustainability, with each hotel and resort set in locations of incredible natural beauty that will stop you in your tracks, delivering an uncompromising level of service that will stay with you long after you’ve left. All of which has been recognized through a host of industry awards and accolades, including from Travel + Leisure (World Best Award and Top Hotel Brand for two years in a row), TIME Magazine, Conde Nast Traveler, and Skift, to name just a few.

Featuring properties in 12 countries, Six Senses is behind some of the world’s most enticing hotels, resorts and spas, including a 19th century wine estate in the Douro Valley in Portugal, breathtaking island resorts in the Seychelles and Maldives, beach-side retreats in Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam (Six Senses Ninh Van Bay and Six Senses Con Dao, and Evason Ana Mandara), and Oman, a city escape in Singapore, and residences in the mountains of Courchevel in France.

Six Senses joins a growing number of luxury brands in the IHG family, including InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Regent Hotels & Resorts, and Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants. Across IHG’s four leading luxury brands, guests can now enjoy nearly 300 luxury hotels around the world, with more than 100 set to open in the coming years.

As part of the IHG family, Six Senses is expected to expand to 60 properties within the next ten years.

“We’re incredibly proud to welcome Six Senses into our family of brands and look forward to opening more stunning hotels, resorts and spas - each one staying true to Six Senses’ world-renowned reputation for wellness and an unwavering commitment to purposeful travel,” said IHG’s CEO Mr. Keith Barr.

Core to every Six Senses hotel and resort is a Six Senses Spa, where guests can relax, reconnect, and completely refresh. Guests are guided on a personal path to finding harmony and balance, to ensure positive and lasting benefits. Unique to the hospitality sector, Six Senses has also taken wellness out of the spa and integrated it across the entire stay, helping guests learn something new and reconnect with themselves, others, and the world around them.

“IHG believes in our purpose to merge the two platforms of wellness and sustainability to promote personal health, and the health of the planet,” said Six Senses CEO Mr. Neil Jacobs. “Joining forces with IHG means we can use a wealth of systems and operational excellence to grow our brand and reach new markets without losing our quirky personality and playful touch.”

In the near future guests will be able to book their Six Senses stay through IHG’s booking platforms, such as the ihg.com website and the company’s leading mobile app, and benefit from the advantages of the IHG Rewards Club loyalty program.
