Six Senses have announced plans to double its Israeli portfolio with the opening of a new property in Tel Aviv’s White City. The hotel is set to open in late 2025. The project was originally initiated by Tidhar Group and also involves entrepreneur Ziv Aviram.
Six Senses Tel Aviv will be housed in a tower, which combines five 110-year-old preservation buildings with sophisticated LEED Platinum sustainability standards. The early 20th century buildings will be joined together at the edge of Rothschild Boulevard to stretch across an entire city block between Rothschild, Herzel, and Lilienblum Streets.
Once complete, the 42-floor tower will house the 10-floor, 140-key Six Senses hotel, as well as 55 brand-serviced residences, rising a further 21 floors. The property’s additional amenities will include spa and wellness facilities with a Holistic Anti-Aging Center, a social and wellness community space, a sky pool with cocktail lounge, a restaurant, a cafe, and a bar.
The planned preservation works of the original buildings will be overseen by Preservation Architects Amnon Bar-Or Architects and Preservation Structural Engineer Yaron Gal. The interiors of the hotel will be designed by Orly Shrem. To capture the city’s character and coast, their design will connect a contemporary, layered approach with an international character. Natural materials and soft, warm colours will permeate the property’s spaces.
The hotel will join Six Senses' Israeli portfolio alongside its property in Shaharut.
It should be noted that the deal remains subject to customary regulatory approvals.
Tel Aviv is one of the most happening cities in the world right now. To understand it, you have to experience it, from its innovation hub to its creative and arts scene, its café culture, and its ingenious Israeli chefs. It is enormously exciting to have the chance to not only be part of this city but to lay our foundation stone next to its foundation stone. We’re building the vision for Six Senses Tel Aviv together with Tidhar Group, one of the leading Israeli real estate groups, which means we have passion and purpose running through the property, from the pioneering wellness programming at Six Senses Place to your Sabich served by the sky pool. Six Senses Tel Aviv joins our urban hotels in Istanbul and soon-to-be-opened Rome, with London, Bangkok, Dubai, Lisbon, and Kyoto coming in the next two years.
Neil Jacobs, CEO of Six Senses
Six Senses Tel Aviv, based on LEED Platinum standards, will be the first of its kind in Israel, setting a new standard for real estate development. The preservation project for the five historic buildings is among the most ambitious and complicated in the city, and the property itself calls for one of the most complex engineering projects currently underway in Israel. Together, they reveal Tel Aviv’s unique story, history beside innovation and a vibrant lifestyle. We are thrilled to have signed the agreement with Six Senses, whose values correspond with our vision at Tidhar. The group represents and promotes advanced approaches to service, sustainability and wellness, alongside an uncompromising standard of quality and excellence.
