The luxury Six Senses brand is expanding further in the Middle East by announcing a new resort in Saudi Arabia, opening in 2026.
Here’s what you need to know about the upcoming luxury property.
Resort Located 15 Minutes From Riyadh
Six Senses Wadi Safar will span 49 acres and feature 80 guest rooms on top of a hill with views of Riyadh, the largest city on the Arabian Peninsula and Saudi Arabia’s capital.
Six Senses hasn’t released many details about the resort; however, we know it will include a hammam, a salon, a gym, a yoga studio, a pool, dining outlets, and meeting spaces.
The hotel will be located just 25 miles from King Khalid International Airport (RUH) and 15 minutes from Riyadh.
The resort is slated to open for guests in 2026, though an exact opening date hasn’t been given. The project is part of Saudi Arabia’s broader Vision 2030 plan, which will see sports venues, retail, arts, and more coming to the country.
“As the Kingdom evolves and opens to tourism, it is garnering strong interest among international visitors to explore its heritage sites and outstanding natural beauty,” said Six Senses Chief Executive Officer Neil Jacobs.
About Six Senses
Six Senses is considered to be one of the world’s most high-end luxury hotel brands. Founded in 1995, the brand has 26 open hotels in some of the most exclusive destinations in the world, such as Fiji, Kyoto, and the Maldives. More than 3 dozen Six Senses properties are currently in the pipeline.
IHG is integrating Six Senses properties into its loyalty program, which means you can redeem IHG One Rewards points for Six Senses stays. However, it’s only possible to book award stays at certain Six Senses brands at the moment. For instance, award nights at Six Senses Laamu in the Maldives can be found for around 100,000 IHG points per night.
The cool thing about Six Senses properties is that you can book them outside the brand’s booking portal. That’s because some Six Senses hotels, such as Six Senses Douro Valley and Six Senses Ninh Van Bay, participate in American Express’ Fine Hotels & Resorts program, available to select Amex cardmembers.
The high-end Six Senses brand is expanding in Saudi Arabia with a new property near Riyadh, Saudi Arabia’s capital. True to the brand, it will offer high-end amenities such as fine dining and a spa. While we await the hotel’s opening, check out Six Senses’ other hotels around the world!
