Six Senses prepares to unveil its first resort in Europe. Located in the beautiful Portuguese UNESCO World Heritage area of the Douro Valley, the property is touched with the romance of 19th century architecture wedded to contemporary interiors reflecting the inimitable Six Senses style.

Golden by name – Douro – the sun-kissed valley is also golden by nature, with amber hued vine-filled terraces and the River Douro winding its lazy way to the Atlantic Coast and passing though the oldest wine-producing region in the world.

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 resort’s 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 resort’s sommelier.

An expansive Six Senses Spa measures over 24,000 square feet (2,200 square metres) with 10 treatments rooms. Presenting the Six Senses specialty treatments and multi-day programs delivered by skilled therapists, the spa has a menu of locally-inspired therapies which include some which are wine based. The spa will also include Six Senses Visiting Practitioner Program which features over 100 of the world’s best wellness healers, practitioners and experts.  The group’s 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 a heated indoor pool with water jets, a heated outdoor pool and bar, and a gym with the latest exercise equipment and professional guidance. There are specially designed spa journeys for couples and some purely pampering procedures. 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 premiere in spring 2015 following an exciting 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 Oporto 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.

  • Looking back at the exact same time last year on a #TravelwithTJD team trip to Tokyo with @ritzcarlton - This was the view from my beautiful room. One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to! Have you been to Japan? I’ve got lots of articles and guides on the blog!
  • I spent my morning with @fourseasons worldwide team at @fsdubaidifc for breakfast and it was so wonderful to learn more about their new and existing projects, but here is a memory taking me back to Maldives. Isn’t the Maldives just an incredible place!?
  • It was an exciting day at the ATM travel market yesterday in Dubai being interviewed on @instagramforbusiness on how I turned my passion into a successful career and on how my business works. I’ll be writing an article on the Q&A of the sessions too! I couldn’t take photos inside the hall but here is a throwback of the time I spent my week Cambodia 🇰🇭 and I’ve also written couple of articles and info on my time there on my site! Happy Monday! 😊
  • It’s the possibility of having all my dreams come true that makes my life so beautiful - Yet, it doesn’t mean that I don’t get to miss some certain moments like this one. In the middle of Laikipia - I left my heart ♥️
  • We’ll always find our way back to each other 💫
  • There is a sandstorm in Dubai at the moment, so I decided to look back at my photos from @constancehotels during my trip to Mauritius 🇲🇺Also, a few of you asked me about the weather, and how the forecast shows that it’s always raining in Mauritius... don’t look at that! The forecast was wrong all week! We had sunny days and clear skies up until the day I left ☀️ So my rule of thumb is: Don’t look at the forecast 😊
  • Last year, I did a little sailing through the Balkans from Montenegro - Have you been yet? It’s beautiful!!! ☀️
If you are planning a trip to there this summer, I’ve posted an itinerary list of things to do in Montenegro! Link in bio!
  • Summer is approaching and I can’t wait! Throwback on this Sunday to my last summer in Croatia! Have you planned your summer vacation yet?
  • As we sometimes give all the love we have to others... we sometimes forget to love ourselves more. I’ve been on a little roller coaster ride the past few days... it’s a good reminder on how I need to listen to my body. Each one of us might be fighting a battle that no one probably knows of, or will ever know, so its always important to give people a break from time to time and let them just be. 💫
  • Mauritius and all its beauty 🇲🇺☀️ @constancehotels
  • The hardest kind of resistance is when you’re resisting yourself. When your heart wants something and your brain prevents it. When you feel like sometimes you want to explode but you don’t. Its not always pretty but you keep going because, everything that is meant to be yours, will be yours.
