Today marks the official entry of Six Senses Botanique into the Six Senses portfolio, this emerald lies at the confluence of three river valleys in the heart of the Mantiqueira Mountains, known as the 'mountains that weep' due to the abundance of springs and rivers.
For Six Senses Botanique, however, there is plenty to be happy about.
After three months of training centered around the Six Senses brand standards and values, hosts cannot wait to showcase out-of-the-ordinary experiences and emotional hospitality, with the Six Senses integrated pillars of sustainability and wellness at the heart of the operation.
The first phase of the resort evolution are most notably gastronomy and wellness – with new menus at Restaurant Mina, a new Fire Side lounge menu, an exclusive eight-course gastronomic journey paired with wines from the resort's select Adega, a reconnection experience with an artisanal outdoor picnic, and pioneering therapies at Six Senses Spa.
“Helping people to reconnect with themselves, others and the world around them is at the center of all that we do. We bring a holistic approach to our food, beverage, wellness, sustainability and out-of-the-ordinary experiences. The idea is that the guest returns home better than when they arrived,” says General Manager Dominic Scoles.
Six Senses Botanique will appeal to guests seeking an eco-retreat in nature along with authentic Brazilian design, culture and cuisine. The property is blessed with seven water springs providing guests with their own mineral water (the best drink in the house!). There is a water treatment station to return clean water back to nature.
Mindful of making responsible decisions, the resort team also works with community members to see how they can contribute to a better quality of life for everyone, while preserving and celebrating local traditions and culture and the beautiful natural environment surrounding the property.
