Six Senses Lisbon has been designed with craftsmanship, comfort, natural materials, and light in mind to ensure both an epicenter and an escape, with spacious seclusion on the inside and seamless access to the city on the doorstep. This time, the heritage buildings are the converted 17th-century Palácio Lavra and the Palácio de Pedrosas. The latter was built in 1764 for an Italian merchant and then later sold to the Portuguese postal service.
Once open, Six Senses Lisbon will offer 114 guestrooms within the two buildings. The Palácio de Pedrosas is a journey through time with pieces acquired by the original merchant still in situ, along with classic and modern art, book collections, antique rugs, maps, and handmade textile sculptures. The vibe is contemporary and fresh, juxtaposed with exposed classic architecture and traditional Portuguese furniture. The room proportions, large windows and doors, and high ceilings give the hotel a breezy and contemporary flow. The suites feature separate fitted kitchens and outdoor terraces with a dining area and comfy sofas. The ground floor of the Palácio Lavra has the aesthetic of an artist’s atelier, complete with carved wooden counters and handmade tapestries. Rooms are decorated in warm and earthy tones to envelop guests in comfort, with traditional Portuguese touches such as hand-painted ceramics.
