Six Senses has signed its first resort in Europe.

 Located in the beautiful Portuguese UNESCO World Heritage area of the Douro Valley, the resort covers 19 acres (8 hectares) and features 71 guest rooms and suites which range from Valley, Spa and River rooms to spacious suites and villas with one, two and three bedrooms.

An all-day dining restaurant and a specialty restaurant draw upon the abundant fresh produce of the region and from the resortís own gardens which feature a contemporary take on Portuguese classics.

An interactive and instructional Wine Academy presents leading vintages from the area, where guests are guided in the varieties and styles by leading Portuguese winemakers from the surrounding valley and the resortís sommelier.

An expansive Six Senses Spa measures over 24,000 square feet (2,200 square metres) with 10 treatments rooms and will offer specialty treatments and multi-day programs delivered by skilled therapists. The spa will also include Six Senses Visiting Practitioner Program which features over 100 of the worldís best wellness healers, practitioners and experts. The groupís popular Yogic Programs are also being added to the menu of services which appeal to different levels of yoga practitioners through Discover Yoga and Yogic Detox.

Spa facilities also include an heated indoor pool with water jets, an heated outdoor pool and bar, and a gym with the latest exercise equipment and professional guidance. A tennis court rounds out the on-site recreation facilities.

For added relaxation, guests can retire to the library and peruse a book whist enjoying a fine wine or cocktail.

Six Senses Douro Valley is scheduled to open in spring 2015 following a refurbishment by Clodagh Design, a leading design services studio based in New York City.

This serene setting of splendid isolation is just 20 miles (33 kilometres) from Vila Real Airport and 88 miles (142 kilometres) from Porto International Airport. Helicopter arrivals are catered for at the nearby Quinta Romeneira helipad.

Six Senses Douro Valley is the 12th property to join the rapidly expanding Six Senses portfolio.
