Luxury ski retreats in Austria are thriving, and by 2026, a new gem will grace the landscape: the Six Senses Kitzbuhel.
Initial glimpses from the concept designs ignite anticipation. Nestled in the sought-after Kitzbuhel region within Tyrol, this elegant sanctuary will feature a modest 77 rooms along with an exclusive assortment of 40 private residences.
Distinguishing itself from certain seasonal operations, Six Senses Kitzbuhel will greet guests throughout the year. Winter promises seamless ski-in, and ski-out access to the slopes, while summer visitors will relish the breathtaking vistas along the region’s picturesque hiking trails.
The interior vision entrusted to Martin Brudnizki embodies understated luxury, embracing natural elements to fashion intimate spaces suffused with daylight. Reflecting the essence of a traditional Austrian chalet, the ambiance will be adorned with sloping wooden-beamed ceilings and balconies framing panoramic mountain views.
Post adventures on the snow-clad slopes, patrons can retreat to the spa for relaxation and rejuvenation. Proficient therapists will administer an array of treatments, ranging from signature massages to indulgent body wraps and invigorating facials. The spa will encompass an indoor lap pool, heated outdoor rock pools, a sauna, steam room, and indoor/outdoor gym facilities.
In a pivotal move, Six Senses is committed to curbing the ecological footprint of its latest venture, aiming to power the Kitzbuhel property entirely with solar, green electricity, and geothermal energy by 2030.
Michael Staininger, the proprietor of the Kitzbuhel project at Six Senses, expressed enthusiasm about expanding their Alpine portfolio. He emphasized the project’s broader impact beyond a mere luxurious retreat, aiming to enrich Alpine tourism and the local community. Staininger envisions creating an environment fostering genuine contentment and holistic experiences—a haven where the physical and mental realms harmonize, offering respite from the digital hustle and bustle.
