Six Senses Rome

When Six Senses Rome opens in early 2023, it will be the brand’s first hotel to open in Italy. The hotel aims to offer a green oasis amid the hustle and bustle of Via del Corso.

Enjoying a prime position within the UNESCO world heritage site of Rome’s historic center, Six Senses Rome is just a few steps away from iconic landmarks such as the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain. The promise of this new property is to take guests on a journey into heritage, discovery, and community in the Eternal City.

Palazzo Salviati Cesi Mellini, which Six Senses Rome calls its home, is a historical building dating back as far as the 15th century. It underwent further developments over the following centuries and is named after the families who once lived within its walls. Six Senses Rome has restored the original façade and monumental staircase to their grand origins to preserve the Palazzo’s heritage.

Interiors are contemporary in style with sustainable architecture and design accents, featuring planting, natural light, and open spaces. The concept is the vision of architect Patricia Urquiola, globally renowned for her responsible design development.

The hotel features 96 guest rooms which are decorated with traditional Cocciopesto plasterwork and locally sourced Travertine limestones. With its airy rooms, sun-filled terraces, notably high ceilings, and historic bay windows, the focus is on well-being.

BIVIUM Restaurant-Café-Bar on the ground floor serves modern Italian cuisine with a Roman nod and plenty of plant-based options. It is curated by Executive Chef Nadia Frisina, locally sourced and seasonal ingredients are the stars of the menu. NOTOS Rooftop specializes in bites and sips, surrounded by 360-degree panoramic views over the city.

Six Senses Spa brings its trademark wellness formula to life while bringing the tradition of ancient Roman bathing. The three plunge pools reproduce the calidarium, tepidarium, and frigidarium. Beyond the baths, there’s a Hammam, biohacking and meditation rooms, sauna, outdoor yoga deck, fitness center, and five treatment rooms. There’s also the opportunity to learn about the therapeutic power of herbs and plants, guided by a skilled therapist, at the Alchemy Bar.

I am honored and proud that this milestone is happening in my home city. My team and I are working with enthusiasm to translate the brand’s core values of emotional hospitality, sustainability, and wellness into a Roman context. For us, high quality and luxury include out-of-the-ordinary experiences and respect for the local community, while keeping things fun and quirky!
