Six Senses to open first resort in Central America
By Jane Kitchen 03 Jun 2019
London-based architect John Heah, known for his sense of theatre and the ability to artfully harmonize design with nature, will design the resort
Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas will bring its sustainable, luxury footprint to Central America as it teams up with The Canyon Group for the development of Six Senses Papagayo in Costa Rica.

London-based architect John Heah, known for his sense of theatre and the ability to artfully harmonize design with nature in the style of Carlo Scarpa, Ed Tuttle and Frank Lloyd Wright, will design the resort, which will include 41 secluded pool villas and 31 residences. Heah’s portfolio includes Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan and Amanera in the Dominican Republic.

The highlight of the resort will be Six Senses wellness programming along with a spa and fitness centre and myriad of activities and inactivities.

There will be an organic farm located in the heart of the property including fruit, vegetable and herb gardens inspiring the chef’s menus and signature spa treatments. There is also an emphasis on community and celebration, whether that means a knees-up during a celebration on the beach or a lazy day spent with loved ones.

Six Senses Papagayo is owned and under development by The Canyon Group based in Larkspur, California. The Canyon Group either acquires or develops boutique, ultra-luxury resorts in unique destinations. Among the group’s core portfolio are the famed Amangiri resort in Utah and Amangani resort in Wyoming. The Canyon Group has teamed up with the Garnier Group, one of Costa Rica’s best known development companies to develop the resort.

“We are very excited about our first project in Central America,” said Neil Jacobs, CEO of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas. “Our own values epitomise Costa Rica’s commitment to sustainability and the essence of Pura Vida (pure life) culture. Everything starts with the question of preserving the natural and cultural heritage of Costa Rica while enhancing social and economic benefits. If we can’t answer it, we don’t do it. Wherever we are in the world, this sensitivity, and acting on it whole-heartedly, has catapulted Six Senses to being consistently voted Top Brand in the World by Travel + Leisure magazine.”

Homi Vazifdar, CEO of The Canyon Group said, “This is the culmination of the perfect country, the perfect region, the perfect brand and extremely committed sponsors. We are delighted to work with Six Senses and the Garnier Group to create not only the best and most notable destination in Latin America but perhaps in the world. We have done this before and hope to do it again.”
