Oh the beauty of Israel’s Negev Desert – see a sunrise view, above, from one of the villas at SIX SENSES SHAHARUT, one of those experiential place one longs to return to, again and again*
Now the resort will, in 2025, have a city-centre sibling. SIX SENSES TEL AVIV is going partly to incorporate five buildings dating back to 1909 – the early days of Tel Aviv as the world now knows it. They are the best remaining heritage of the Ahuzat Bayit settlement, the first in the city. These will be joined together at the edge of Rothschild Boulevard to stretch across an entire city block between the prestigious Rothschild, Herzel, and Lilienblum Streets
This is Tel Aviv’s White City district, in 2003 acclaimed as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site, “an outstanding example of new town planning and architecture in the early 20th century”. Developers of the hotel, to be designed by Orly Shrem, is the well-established real estate giant, the Tidhar Group, led by keen cyclist Gil Geva and tech entrepreneur Arye Bachar.
Six Senses Tel Aviv will have 140 bedrooms and 55 residences, in the 42-floor Rothschild 10 Tower. Key features include a two-floor wellness facility with a Holistic Anti-Aging Center: a Six Senses Place, a new kind of social and wellness community with dedicated space for reflection, growth, and reconnection; a sky pool on the 17th floor housing a cocktail lounge with a panoramic view of the Gush Dan area; a celeb chef’s restaurant, café, and bar – and diverse public spaces, including the elegant lobby atrium, serve as a plaza between the preserved buildings to welcome guests into a journey through time.
