Six Senses enters China with Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain

Six Senses announced its expansion in China, with the scheduled opening of the Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain on Aug. 1.

Located at the gateway to the country’s Qing Cheng mountains, Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain was created to complement the UNESCO World Heritage and Natural Cultural Site at nearby Dujiangyan. It was in this region, known as the homeland of the giant pandas, that the “Silk Road” began. The resort, which is situated to the west of the Sichuan Basin, is over an hour’s drive from the regional capital of Chengdu.

The 113 guest accommodations at Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain will range from semi-detached suites in duplex villas with balconies and verandas, to courtyard suites, garden and pool villas. Two-and four-bedroom villas will offer intimate seclusion, with indoor courtyard, whirlpool or pool, natural wood interiors, and outdoor settings. Complimentary WiFi will be offered, along with a smartphone app that allow guests to control air conditioning, television programming and lighting.
