Six Senses Spas Named in Spa
Finder Readers’ Choice Awards Poll for World’s Best
Bangkok, September 7, 2005: Six Senses Spas were honoured by
prestigious Spa Finder at its 2005 annual Reader’s Choice Crystal
Spa Finder CEO and Chairman Pete Ellis presented the awards to
the world’s best spas, by continent, as determined by visitors to their
Web site and readers of Luxury SpaFinder Magazine,
The awards went
to two Six Senses Spas; the Six Senses Spa at Soneva Fushi Resort
in the Maldives, and the Six Senses Spa at Madinat Jumeriah - The
Arabian Resort, in Dubai. "To
be selected as one of the world’s best spas by these discerning
spa-goers is an objective validation of a truly world-class spa
experience”, said Ellis as he presented the awards. “You are
crème de la crème of the spa world’
Pete Ellis went on to say that “… more and more people are enjoying spas
to improve how they look and feel, but with so many different types of
spas, and so many different spa programmes and services, spa-goers can
have vastly different expectations and goals. Our Awards are designed to
reflect the true diversity and global reach of today’s spa marketplace”.
The two Six Senses Spas that received the awards, were also firsts in
another category: The Six Senses Spa at Soneva Fushi is the original
Six Senses Spa, and together with Soneva Fushi is celebrating the resort’s

the first Six Senses Spa to be opened and operated by Six Senses in a

immediately established itself as the pre-eminent Dubai spa.
