EGUPT’S first Six Senses Spa will be hosted by Intercontinental The Palace Port Ghalib Resort, in Marsa Alam, Egypt.
This was announced last month at the official signing of the agreement by Ibrahim Saleh, vice president of Al-Kharafi Group, and Sonu Shivdasani, chairman and CEO of Six Senses Resorts & Spas.
The spa at Port Ghalib occupies 1,700 sq m, comprising 16 treatment areas including three couples rooms, two Thai treatment rooms, and one wet treatment room with classically designed stone beds. The spa includes a sauna, steam room, changing rooms, fully equipped gym, and traditional hammams. A separate wet room offers a steam room and shower, plus an ice room.
The spa menu delivers spa experiences that support Six Senses’ commitment to its SLOW LIFE philosophy – sustainable-local-organic-wholesome learning-inspiring-fun-experiences. By utilising local ingredients including organic grown herbs, spices and fruits, Red Sea healing therapies combine with Asian and Six Senses’ signature treatments to enhance health and improve the condition and vitality of the body, according to the company.
Trained Six Senses Spa therapists offer all the traditional treatments such as Thai, henna and aroma massages, as well as a comprehensive bath menu. More specialised programmes are offered including typical private hammam rituals, and fitness training sessions customised to achieve personal lifestyle and fitness goals. An on site boutique offers a range of spa related products, allowing the spa experience to continue for the guest after departure.
The spa at Port Ghalib is located just five minutes from Marsa Alam International Airport on the Red Sea and is two and a half hours by road, from the Valley of the Kings.
