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.

  • I miss you with all my heart and soul...
  • A year ago I was having breakfast with those beautiful giants. An unforgettable experience. Thank you all for your beautiful comments on my previous post 💕
  • I struggled to choose a caption for this image because they say that you are what you share on social media, and so, I wanted to make it count. 
Being a 'blogger' or a 'traveler' has changed significantly over the past few years. You can’t go on Instagram without stumbling upon hundreds of carefully selected, beautifully crafted images. 
The truth is, today, things are not the same as they used to be. Travel has changed and grown. The internet has given us a chance to see the world through people's eyes and to dream of places many of us never even knew existed. 
But social media has also changed travel and the nature of blogging. Sharing my travel online has today somewhat been a constant pressure and the staging of every single photo has become the business of every instagrammer. 
I have felt the pressure of keeping up and carefully selecting what I chose to share. 
I've even promised myself that I would be a leader, not a follower, and stay far away from online traveling trends that would warp my ability to offer my readers the very best & honest tips and insider reports. 
The key...is confidence... I had the chance to make every possible mistake and figure out a way to always recover from it. Once you realize that there is life after a mistake, you gain your confidence and that, never goes away,
It goes straight to the heart and once you have that, no one and nothing can take that away from you . . I hope I’ll always have the courage to live a life that’s true to who I am and not the life that others expect of me... 💕[Click link in bio to read the full article] 💕.
