Updated September 2022: the hotel's opening has been pushed back to 2/28/23, so effectively a March 2023 opening.
The Six Senses Rome Will Open in March 2023 as the first Six Senses in Italy, and the fourth Six Senses in Europe, after the Six Senses Douro Valley in Portugal, Six Senses Residences Courchevel in France, and Six Senses Ibiza, Spain. Rome will also mark Six Senses second currently operating urban property, after Six Senses Kocatas Mansions in Istanbul, opening prior to Six Senses New York and Six Senses London, both slated for 2023, and Six Senses Kyoto, expected to debut in 2024. As with Aman Resorts, most Six Senses resorts are in relatively remote places of natural beauty, and sometimes near UNESCO World Heritage sites of cultural significance.
Six Senses Rome Location
Six Senses Rome will be located at the Piazza di San Marcello, a 5 minute walk from the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon, a 13 minute walk from the Spanish Steps, an 18-20 minute walk from the Colosseum, and a half hour drive from Rome Airport (FCO). In terms of other luxury hotels, the Six Senses will be ~11 minute walk from the Portrait Roma, a 12 minute walk to the new Bulgari Hotel Roma and to the J.K. Place Roma, and a 15 minute walk to the Hotel de la Ville, the Rocco Forte hotel that opened in 2019.
Six Senses Rome Amenties
The hotel's main facade, which is UNESCO listed and overlooks the Via del Corso, is being meticulously restored, along with the grand staircase. The hotel will offer 95 rooms and suites, many of them with high ceilings and unique layouts, reflecting the building's heritage origins. Interior design is by Spanish firm Patricia Urquiola, whose other luxury hotel work includes Velaa Private Island in the Maldives, the recently renovated common areas of Four Seasons Milan, and the Mandarin Oriental Barcelona, among others.
The hotel's ground floor includes an open kitchen trattoria and bar, which lead out to a travertine marble and oak-lined gallery and seating area. The second floor (first floor in European parlance) will have the Six Senses Spa, including a fitness center, spa relaxation area, treatment rooms, and Roman baths. The Earth Lab, focused on sustainable living, will also be on this floor.
A highlight of the hotel will be its rooftop terrace, with its panoramic views of Rome and organic fruit and vegetable gardens.
