Six Senses Shaharut has announced that its retreat in Israel’s Southern Negev Desert is set to open on August 5, 2021.
Built as an oasis in the desert, the six-treatment-room spa is designed to reflect the natural desert setting, with views across the Arava Valley and ridges of the Edom Mountains. Using natural, locally sourced materials, the two-level wellness facility has been constructed in an eco-friendly manner and blends seamlessly into the desert’s landscape.
Spa Shaharut’s facilities will include:
- Open-plan relaxation area
- Indoor pool
- Retail boutique
- Outdoor courtyard pergola with seating
- An outdoor alchemy bar
- Gym and wellness studio
- Nail bar
- Separate-sex changing facilities with hammams and saunas
The spa has also partnered with French skin care brand Biologique Recherche, local product house Lavido, equipment supplier Lemi and bespoke uniforms from Fashionizer Spa. The resort will complement its wellness offerings with activities including sunrise yoga workshops, stargazing, hikes and desert camel treks along the ancient Incense Route, which was used by traders from the seventh century B.C. to the second century A.D.
