Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas is helping guests meet their health goals thanks to fresh whole food that is nutritious and delicious.
Eat With Six Senses represents another pillar of the Six Senses Integrated Wellness philosophy focusing on food and drink. It is based on the guiding principles of natural ingredients, local and sustainable, and less is more, helping guests to reconnect with food safe in the knowledge that it’s good for them, and good for the world around them.
Six Senses chooses a cleaner and simpler approach to preparation, focusing on quality, balance and fresh whole food made from scratch. Chefs indulge their love for hearty and healthy menus full of color, taste and joy, while unapologetically avoiding the bad stuff (flavor enhancers, lectins, lactose, gluten and sugar). Instead they choose the ingredients and preparation methods that promote a healthy microbiome (the trillions of tiny gut buddies living in the body) to offer better digestion and absorption of nutrients while boosting the immune system. Glucose is out, fermenting is in!
Local and Sustainable
It is essential to know what’s in food and where it’s from, and each Six Senses resort is reinforcing its relationships with local farmers, producers and suppliers, who are committed to responsible sourcing and seasonality. Imported seafood could be farm raised with antibiotics and growth hormones. By working closely with local producers, Six Senses is assuring that ethical practices in raising animals and avoiding at-risk species are adhered to.
Even closer to home, each Six Senses resort cultivates its own organic vegetable garden, one property already has its own free-range chicken farm to supply fresh eggs and two resorts have established mushroom huts.
Less is More
Produce that has traveled a long distance is often gassed, irradiated and preserved with wax or exposed to toxic packaging. At Six Senses, the energy footprint of importing branded drinking water has been eliminated with each resort having its own reverse osmosis plant to produce top quality still and sparkling mineralized water, which is provided to guests in reusable glass bottles.
As Deep as People Want to Go
Guests who typically vacation at Six Senses tend to eat healthier by default. For guests who are curious about Eat With Six Senses and want to discover more about the food-and-beverage offerings, fitness and wellness activities, they will have the basics for making life changes. While guests who opt for the full Integrated Wellness, including a personalized wellness screening, will reap the total immersion benefits: from fitness plans to Sleep With Six Senses, the wellness experience can be integrated into every aspect of their stay.
Six Senses Integrated Wellness was developed in collaboration with physicians Steven Gundry, Michael Breus, Mehmet Oz and Patrick Wahlberg, members of the Six Senses Wellness Board and wellness professionals.
Eat With Six Senses will also have a positive outcome for the resort’s hosts, as the philosophy will be implemented in all employee dining outlets. It will create an internal culture of health and wellness through healthier meal choices as well as provide knowledge to support the well-being of hosts and their families.
