Work is in progress to add seven suites and three guestrooms at Six Senses Douro Valley, set to debut this summer in Portugal. New York-based Clodagh Design is overseeing the design.
The new guestrooms and suites will continue the color palette and finishes of the resort’s existing rooms and suites.
Upon completion, the rooms will have a mini bar, with extra detail offered in the suites on the first floor, as each will have a wine fridge with a selection of Douro wines. Authentic materials gathered from the Douro Valley will be incorporated into the décor, including wine bottle light fixtures, vineyard tools of yesteryear and wall art inspired by wooden wine cases. The bedrooms will have two king beds in four rooms, and super kings in three suites and in the Quinta Superior.
All of the 10 guestrooms and suites on the ground floor will have outside areas with seating. There will also be hot tubs in the bathrooms. Meanwhile, two of the current guestrooms on level six will have private wooden bridges leading to secret gardens with seating and hot tubs.
For events, the property is adding new meeting rooms with views across the vineyards and can accommodate from 20 and 70 participants. The walls of the meeting venues will have “writable” sections for interactive meetings, and all rooms will have the latest technology. A key feature will be the indoor-outdoor adjoining room for pre-function or break-out sessions. It will have an open skylight, a full height living wall and will be multi-functional to transform from a lounge to a cinema, lecture room, reception room or even aerial yoga or meditation space.
