Six Senses Set to Grace South Carolina Islands with Sustainable Luxury in 2026

In a significant development, Six Senses has inked a hotel management agreement with Whitestone and Redrock Portfolio, Inc. to introduce an eco-conscious resort, spa, and residential enclave on the serene shores of South Carolina, encompassing Hilton Head Island, Daufuskie Island, and Bay Point Island. Scheduled for unveiling in 2026, the expansive Six Senses South Carolina Islands project will span multiple coastal destinations, conveniently situated within proximity to the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport.

Renowned for its quaint charm, meandering tidal creeks, pristine white-sand beaches, and abundant wildlife, Hilton Head Island will serve as the primary gateway to the resort and residences. Here, guests will be welcomed at a central hub boasting a restaurant and retail outlet, also serving as a departure point for Six Senses patrons embarking on aquatic adventures via hybrid yachts or electric boats along the Intercoastal Waterway.

Daufuskie Island, the southernmost inhabited sea island in South Carolina, embodies the core ethos of the 460-acre Six Senses South Carolina Islands project—regeneration. This philosophy is intricately woven into the blueprint of the guest accommodations, private suites, beachfront cottages, and maritime forest dwellings. A diverse culinary scene awaits guests, with an all-day restaurant complemented by a specialty eatery, bar, beach club, pool grill, and engaging pop-up events showcasing seasonal and locally sourced fare.

Beyond water-based activities like water sports, sailing, and fishing, guests can immerse themselves in Daufuskie’s rich cultural tapestry, including studio visits spotlighting local artisans. The integrated farm and championship golf course offer further exploration opportunities, featuring heritage livestock encounters and therapeutic equine experiences.

Daufuskie Island will also house the Six Senses Spa, emphasizing integrative wellness through yoga, meditation, mindfulness sessions, and holistic therapies offered by visiting practitioners. To foster a sense of community, village homes are being developed on Daufuskie Island, providing high-quality residential options and shared amenities for both hosts and local residents.

With a design ethos inspired by the coastal charm of the American South, the modular, Category 5 hurricane-resistant, biophilic, and self-sustaining branded residential villas of Bay Point Island will set new standards for sustainable living. Leveraging state-of-the-art waste management systems, renewable energy sources, reverse-osmosis water supplies, and innovative helical piling techniques to minimize soil disturbance, these villas epitomize eco-conscious luxury living. A limited selection of these villas will be available for purchase in 2024, offering discerning buyers an opportunity to embrace a lifestyle of harmony with nature.
