Marking the brand’s debut resort in the Caribbean, Six Senses La Sagesse, Grenada is set on a make its home on the southern part of the island. Set to open in late 2022, the resort and residences will be spread over 38 acres and laid out using the natural topography of the land, with great effort given to ensuring space, privacy and views of the sea.
The resort will have 56 guestrooms, seven one-bedroom villas and five two-bedroom villas, with no building being higher than a palm tree. The walkways through the gardens are made of repurposed nutmeg shells and cocoa skins. Also available are a handful of contemporary residences available for purchase. These three- and four-bedroom green-roofed homes are carefully and individually sited into the hillside within landscaped gardens. Each has a 56-foot horizon-edge pool and wrap-around pool deck. The indoor dining spills out onto a covered bar and BBQ terrace that merges into a lawn garden with a palm canopy.
Good to know: Owners will have access to all the resort’s facilities, amenities and services, as well as having the opportunity to place their homes into the rental program when not in occupation.

There’s also in-villa dining for staying in with a presented dinner or movie night.
For drinks, guests can opt for the Sand Bar (which will offer rum-making workshops), use the swim-up bar or concoct their own botanical bases in the Fermentation Lab. There will also be home-bottled water at the Water Bar, a group-wide initiative that avoids the transportation of 2 million plastic bottles a year.

Ingredients for the restaurants and spa will be picked from the kitchen gardens, herb gardens and native fruit trees, while seafood will be sourced from local fishermen. The landscaping strategy also promotes mangrove enhancement and restoration, with the aim for achieving a wildlife habitat that visitors can experience under the guidance of conservation research partners.
The Six Senses Earth Lab is a center for engagement and innovation located at the heart of the resort, where guests are encouraged to join workshops and learn firsthand about the natural world, how to lighten their footprint and rewild their soul to potentially carry what they’ve learned with them beyond the resort.
