Six Senses Residences is delighted to announce the upcoming opening of its luxury property in Fiji, set on the stunning Malolo Island coastline.
In a first for the group, the Fiji property due to open late 2017, is a very special opportunity both as a resident and a guest to enjoy the fabulous tropical island culture of this South Pacific country in true Six Senses style. The Six Senses synergy of simple design and beautifully spacious accommodation, uncompromising quality and service, and environmental sensitivity is presented in Six Senses Residences. The residences are also a unique opportunity for one to own a piece of Fiji paradise.
The architect of the residences, New Zealander Richard Priest, was inspired by the location’s abundance of natural elements and the architecture of the South Pacific, to create a modern day island masterpiece that achieves low environmental impact. Local craftsmen make the furniture, which is being custom designed for Six Sense Fiji. The result is a development that is seamless within its natural surrounds without losing its sense of luxury. We call it living the Six Senses Residences lifestyle.
Sixty-six modern residences, in 3, 4 and 5 bedroom configurations, are part of Six Senses Fiji’s extraordinary accommodation offering. The privately owned residences vary in size from approximately 600 square metres of interior and exterior space up to 1,000 square metres. They all feature panoramic ocean or marina views, private pools and are situated on the west side of the island where they enjoy the idyllic Fijian sunsets. Exteriors include expansive outdoor decks and dining areas and lush tropical gardens.
The island resort community encompasses 120 acres of hill top, ocean, and beachfront sites centred around the Six Senses Fiji Resort & Spa. Included in the community in addition to the Six Senses boutique luxury resort, are a retail shop, delicatessen, restaurants, bars, wellness village, fitness centre, tennis court and two full-service marinas.
The generous dimensions of the villas afford the ultimate in barefoot luxury. Interiors are decorated with traditional hardwoods, exquisite furnishings, Fijian art and all of the detailed comforts of a home away from home. The open floor plan found in all villas blends the sea, sky and tropical landscape to create a soothing environment that invites relaxation while giving instant access to the ocean.
Sustainability is at the heart of Six Senses Residences Fiji and will be reflected throughout the residences through active management of energy, water, waste, biodiversity, purchasing and chemical usage. Protection and preservation of the island is a top priority.
The resort landscape is planted extensively with indigenous plant species and also grows its own fruits and vegetables onsite. Six Senses Fiji will be 100 per cent solar powered and the first micro grid in the world to use Tesla batteries. The project includes tree reforestation on site to offset wood used in construction and also coral reforestation to promote sea life and enhance the local marine environment.
In addition, the structure of the residences’ lot ownership (99 year leasehold) has been set up to preserve the underlying ownership of the land by the local tribes (Mataqali), and will generate sustainable revenue streams by way of a share in the leases on the land and an ownership share in the resort management company.
Residents of the Six Senses Fiji will enjoy a superb range of culinary offerings with award-winning cuisine prepared by the Executive Chef, New Zealander Ihaka Peri. The two restaurants plus an outdoor pizzeria and grill, as well as two bar options, a gourmet food market and a walk-in wine cellar. Locally inspired and sustainably sourced, Six Senses Fiji cuisine will feature ingredients grown onsite in the resort market gardens and from local farmers, markets and fishermen.
The Six Senses Spa is located within the resort’s wellness village, where residents will enjoy a layered approach to wellness and relaxation including spa treatments, fitness, yoga above the treetops and meditation.
Recreation activities include world-class surfing, boating, sailing, diving, snorkelling and sea kayaking. Also, two full-service marinas are located at Six Senses Fiji and are available for guests’ private yachts, as well as for charter leisure boats.
The private residences can be managed or rented out via Six Senses Fiji.
