Six Senses Resorts & Spas has signed a partnership with The Alpina Gstaad, Switzerland to develop and manage the hotels spa.

The 56-room Alpina Gstaad, set in the heart of the Bernese Alps, is scheduled to open in December 2012.

We are delighted to be working with The Alpina Gstaad and the team. Their goal of setting a completely new level of distinction and authenticity goes hand-in-hand with Six Senses Spas philosophy of creating harmonious and sensorial spaces which adapt seamlessly with local culture and surroundings and deliver unique and memorable spa experiences. Our spa at The Alpina Gstaad will carefully merge local traditions with Six Senses signature features to delight guests from around the world; says Bernhard Bohnenberger, President of Six Senses Resorts and Spas.

Taking the cue from the Six Senses philosophy, only natural and where possible, locally-sourced materials are being used throughout the spa. Local Swiss pine wood will evoke a sense of place but with a darker wood stain as a nod to the oriental design language. Natural fabrics in bright aqua shades will add fresh highlights to the natural palette in the reception area and subtle beige tones have been used throughout the spa.

The spa will feature a floatation room, a Hammam, individual treatment rooms dedicated to specialist therapies such as Ayurveda and colour therapy and colonic hydrotherapy; five multi-functional single treatment rooms, an Oriental room, a Cave room as well as a Kids Spa.

Other facilities include a Salt room, a swimming pool, a variety of relaxation rooms, a juice bar, a gym and a studio for Yoga, Pilates and Aerobics.

The Kids Spa will feature a swimming pool, a salt area and a spa menu focusing on specialised childrens treatments under parental guidance.

The Six Senses Spa will offer a wide range of Six Senses signature and locally-inspired treatments, Asian and Ayurvedic therapies as well as beauty treatments. There will also be specialist results-driven programmes such as detox, weight-loss and fitness, supported through workshops and individual consultations.
