Six Senses Galapagos to debut in the Galápagos Islands

Published on : Friday, October 4, 2019

Six Senses announced the opening of its first resort in the Galápagos Islands in 2021 which will be located on San Cristobal Island, in the town of Cerro Verde on the north-eastern coast.

 

The island is quiet and is known for a relaxed and tranquil vibe. In 1978 the UNESCO had recognized the Galápagos Islands as a World Heritage Site and as a Biosphere reserve in 1985.

 

 

On a verdant hill permission has been granted to develop the resort and the project is being led by Hitesh Mehta of HM Design and will focus on a distinctive planning philosophy which balances economic, environmental, and social impact.

 

 

Neil Jacobs, Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas chief executive stated that sustainability is at the core of their brand, influencing everything from ongoing community engagement and conservation efforts to the local, repurposed materials used in the development.

 

 

He felt delighted to work with the Orgal Group on this extraordinary project in such a special and environmentally sensitive place, staying true to their joint purpose of ecosystem restoration, scientific research of marine species and low-impact tourism.

 

 

Chief executive of Orgal Group, Arturo Kayser mentioned that the Galápagos Islands are a magical destination with a unique place in natural history. Their  guests will come face-to-face with their raw beauty and experience the extraordinary wildlife which inspired Charles Darwin to develop his theory of evolution.

 

 

By joining forces with Six Senses a great alignment of visions: a commitment to sustainability and preservation of the environment, while enhancing social and economic benefits of the local community  is being represented.
