Back in 2019, IHG announced that it was acquiring Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas. IHG Rewards has now announced that nine Six Senses properties will be joining the program.
As a result, IHG Rewards members can now earn and redeem points at the nine properties. The properties that have joined are:
- Six Senses Fiji
- Six Senses Yao Noi, Thailand
- Six Senses Laamu, Maldives
- Six Senses Zil Pasyon, Seychelles
- Six Senses Ninh Van Bay, Vietnam
- Six Senses Uluwatu, Bali, Indonesia
- Six Senses Botanique, Brazil
- Six Senses Kaplankaya, Turkey
- Six Senses Ibiza (opening July 2021; bookable with IHG Rewards soon)
The addition of these resorts allows members to explore even more inspiring destinations and incredible hospitality. IHG Rewards members can now enjoy the benefits of the program while staying at Six Senses property.
Six Senses holds an interesting position in the market. While they have a brand philosophy of creating exceptional experiences, they also focus on wellness. Not just of the guest, but of the community they are in.
That said, they are not cheap. However, they may make for a reasonable redemption option. For example, I found availability for Six Senses Yao Noi for 110,000 points a night. This sounds a lot, however, the cash price worked out at over $1000 a night.
Further Six Senses properties are expected to be joining IHG Rewards over time, bringing additional properties for members to enjoy.
It is a bit difficult to get to these properties at the moment. At least we can dream, and look forward to the day when we will be able to stay at one of these properties.
Having said that, they look nice, and I am looking forward to trying them out in the not too distant future.
