    Set to open in early summer 2015, Six Senses Spa Marbella is located at the charming Puente Romano Beach Resort situated in the Costa del Sol on the southern coast of Spain. The spa has been beautifully created to complement the hotel’s charming and peaceful Andalusia beachfront village character.Taking the cue from Six Senses’ philosophy, the spa’s design combines indigenous features such as whitewashed walls and hand-painted tiles together with natural stone and locally sourced materials, evoking a strong sense of place wedded to environmental commitment.

    Local architecture and craftsmanship have provided inspiration for interior features which include six ground floor treatment rooms. Their contemporary wall designs created from blue and white painted tiles are complemented by natural oak timber floors, arched doorways and vaulted ceilings, creating a warm and inviting ambience.

    The reception and lounge area features a beautifully-crafted, floor-to-ceiling timber walls with cosy seats and retail displays. From here, guests enter a relaxation lounge with a nail bar featuring glorious views out to the stunning Mediterranean Sea and to the elegantly vaulted corridors which lead to the changing rooms. An oval-shaped waiting area is designed in a cocoon-like style, providing a welcoming respite before and between treatments.

    A highlight of this Andalusia-inspired architecture is the wet area featuring a hydrotherapy pool; a cold plunge pool; heat and ice experience showers with different types of water flow and mood lighting; herbal steam room; sauna and hammam. Elegant columns and high-arched ceilings evoke a strong yet graceful Moorish character complemented by the use of crema marfil stone and intricately woven screens that filter the sunlight creating playful reflections in the blue-tiled pool.

    On the first floor, an outdoor area features an additional three treatment rooms with canopied roofs and swing cabanas overlooking the sea and providing a perfect place for guests to reconnect with the abundant nature and surrounding environment.

    The creative diversity and spa design embody Six Senses ability to adapt seamlessly to different cultures creating environments conceived to revitalise and replenish. Guests will chose from a wide selection of Six Senses signature massages, facials and body treatments, wellness therapies and rituals as well as beauty and fitness treatments. Locally-inspired options combine indigenous herbs with sea salt, olive oil and rich minerals to offer authentic Mediterranean experiences.

    QMS Medicosmetics and The Organic Pharmacy have been confirmed as product partners, offering a range of result-driven face and body treatments. Six Senses Spas also plans to introduce a series of yogic programs and integrated wellness retreats, delivering highly personalised solutions to guests looking to achieve specific health goals.

    Puente Romano Beach Resort is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World and lies within the magnificent Golden Mile between Marbella and Puerto Banus, just 35 minutes drive from Málaga Airport. Resembling an Andalusian village, the 264 luxurious Mediterranean-style guest rooms are spread in 27 three–story villas amid lush, sub-tropical gardens, cascading down to the Mediterranean Sea. The resort features spectacular designs by acclaimed interior designer Andrew Martin, seven restaurants, including the two-star Michelin Dani García restaurant, sea front and garden pools, a world-renowned tennis club, 18-hole golf course and an equestrian center.
