Six Senses Fort Barwara, Rajasthan, India

Set in a 14th century fort originally owned by the royal family of Rajasthan, India’s first Six Senses resort is a stunning property that includes a historic palace and two temples. Slated to open in 2020, the 48 suites are nothing short of spectacular, but it’s the spa that really takes the cake, as it spans 2,800 square metres and sits in the elegant former women’s palace. The Ayurveda spa programmes draw heavily on ancient wellness traditions and techniques and cover everything from nutrition to mindfulness and healthy sleep patterns.
