Six Senses Hotels Resorts and Spa has announced its debut hotel in the UK, located at London’s former Whiteleys department store, will open in 2023.
The West London hotel will feature 110 guest rooms and suites, a Six Senses spa, a lobby bar and lounge, all-day dining restaurant with an open kitchen and seating area in the courtyard.
The spa will reminisce “an old-fashioned London underground” and will feature 3,500 meters dedicated to fitness alongside an indoor swimming pool and an Alchemy Bar as well as a relaxation room with vaulted ceilings.
The second floor will consist of a social and wellness club equipped with a bar and lounge, co-working spaces, a restaurant and wellness rooms.
The redevelopment of the former Whiteleys department store is being headed by a Meyer Bergman-advised fund, with the residential real estate developer Finchatton as development manager.
Commenting on the announcement, Neil Jacobs, chief executive officer said: “I feel nostalgic when talking about Whiteleys.
“I grew up in the neighbourhood and my parents used to bring me here.It is a wonderful opportunity to pay homage to this heritage and bring our brand values to life in this part of town, while celebrating our first port of call for Six Senses in the UK.”
