The 94-room hotel will be suspended above the Holandsfjorden fjord in Norway.

Located at the base of Svartisen glacier, the “94-room Six Senses Svart combines a futuristic design and technological innovation with earthy, organic materials that use the least embedded energy.” 

Svart will be first building to be designed and built to the highest energy-efficiency, harvesting enough solar energy to go back into the system – rendering it independent from the power grid.

Health and Wellness is also a focus. Guests can enjoy “effective fixes from compression boots to vitamin IVs in the biohacking lounge to all-round fitness in the sensory treatment suites.”

The hotel will also feature an ‘Alchemy Bar’ bursting with scents and scrubs, an ‘Earth Lab’ showcasing  “Lifecycle Living” (whatever that is) and a ‘Design Lab’ which will “act as an incubator for innovation and education for guests to understand how new technologies can bring the sector closer to carbon neutrality.”

Developmental director, Ivaylo Lefterov said of the project: “Six Senses Svart is redefining the travel experience through technological innovation, ground-breaking design, and exceptional guest wellness journey by creating a carbon-neutral visionary destination where we can showcase the core pillars of what modern hospitality design and operation can achieve.”
