Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas says its new Eat With Six Senses initiative is another pillar of the company’s Integrated Wellness philosophy and approach to food and drink.
Guests who simply holiday at Six Senses will eat more healthily by default. Those guests who are curious about Eat With Six Senses and want to discover more about the food and beverage offerings, fitness and wellness activities, will have the basics for making life changes. Those guests who opt
for the full Integrated Wellness offering, including a personalised wellness screening, will enjoy the benefits – from fitness plans to Sleep With Six Senses, the wellness experience can be integrated into every aspect of their stay.
Six Senses Integrated Wellness was developed in collaboration with Dr. Steven Gundry, Dr. Michael Breus, Dr. Mehmet Oz and Patrick Wahlberg, members of Six Senses Wellness Board, highly respected doctors and leading wellness professionals.
Six Senses Integrated Wellness
Six Senses chooses a cleaner and simpler approach to preparation, focusing on quality, balance and fresh whole food made from scratch. Their chefs indulge a love for hearty and healthy menus full of colour, taste and joy, while avoiding flavour enhancers, lectins, lactose, gluten and sugar, instead choosing ingredients and preparation methods that promote a healthy microbiome (the trillions of bacteria and other microorganisms that live within the human gastrointestinal tract) to offer better digestion and absorption of nutrients while boosting the immune system.
Local and sustainable
It is essential to know what’s in food and where it’s from, and each Six Senses resort is reinforcing
its relationships with local farmers, producers and suppliers committed to responsible sourcing and seasonality. Imported seafood could be farm raised with antibiotics and growth hormones, so, by working closely with local producers, Six Senses is assuring that ethical practices in raising animals and avoiding at-risk species are adhered to.
Less is more
Produce that has travelled a long distance is often gased, irradiated and preserved with wax or exposed to toxic packaging. At Six Senses, the energy footprint of importing branded drinking water has been eliminated with each resort having its own reverse osmosis plant to produce top quality still and sparkling mineralised water, which is provided to guests in reusable glass bottles.
