Following the brand’s entry into Singapore, New York and London, Six Senses is set to arrive in Italy next year.
The Six Senses Rome will be in an 18th century palazzo in the city center, a former residence for the São Marcelo cardinal-elders, Salviati, Cesi and Mellini. Protected by the Roman municipality and UNESCO listed, the main façade, which overlooks Via del Corso, is being restored to maintain its heritage. The central staircase will also be preserved.
The palazzo building is blocks away from the Fontana di Trevi and Pantheon and the shopping streets of Via Condotti, Frattina and Borgognona are within walking distance.
When it opens, the hotel will have 95 guestrooms, a spa, a restaurant, an events terrace, an outdoor courtyard garden and rooftop terrace with views of the city and monuments
The redevelopment is owned by the Orion European Real Estate Fund V, a fund sponsored by Orion Capital Managers, a European real estate private equity ﬁrm.
