  • Centrally located in the heart of the city, just blocks away from the Trevi Foundation and a short walk from Via Condotti

Six Senses Rome is an oasis in the heart of the city, located literally just steps away from a number of iconic landmarks, including the Pantheon and the Trevi Fountain. The brand have taken the 18th-century, UNESCO-listed Palazzo Salviati Cesi Mellini – once home to Pope Paul II’s nephew and high-ranking cardinals – and have restored it to its grand origins. A blend of elements that nod to the past – Roman baths, Travertine marble, a kitchen garden – Six Senses have brought the building into the 21st century with a half plant-based style menu, a panoramic roof terrace, and a dedicated biohacking room in the spa.

In the 96 guest rooms and suites, Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola has used soothing hues and modern silhouettes to create a contemporary feel, whilst using traditional cocciopesto plaster and Travertine limestone to pay tribute to Rome’s history. There’s a choice of 12 accommodation categories, including three individually designed signature suites, but we would recommend opting for a secluded room with courtyard views or a suite facing the bustling Via del Corso and neighbouring San Marcello al Corso Church.


One of Italy’s biggest draws is its cuisine, and Six Senses Rome doesn’t disappoint. At Bivium (meaning ‘a place where two ways meet’ in Latin), enjoy all-day dining with an open kitchen that spills out into the courtyard. Partially supplied by the fruit, vegetable and herb garden on the roof with local Rome producers filling in the gaps, Bivium’s menu will be half plant-based (unique for Italy), with a focus on showcasing seasonality.

Or, head up to the roof of the Palazzo where you’ll find a secret garden escape offering tempting bites and creative sips surrounded by unparalleled panoramic views.


After a long day exploring the city, visit the Six Senses Spa which is a modern take on the ancient art of Roman bathing, bringing its trademark wellness formula to life whilst respecting centuries past. With its very own set of Roman baths (a caldarium, tepidarium and frigidarium) as well as five treatment rooms for therapies using all-natural products, you’re sure to leave feeling restored. Beyond this, there’s a biohacking room that uses smart tech to ease any aches, a Hammam, sauna, outdoor yoga deck, and fitness centre.


Palazzo Salviati Cesi Mellini, being UNESCO protected, has undergone a meticulous conversion with a strong emphasis on using local materials and traditional methods, aspiring to achieve LEED Gold certification for sustainable design and construction. The hotel is dedicated to maximizing water and energy efficiency, powered entirely by 100% green electricity, and has successfully eliminated single-use plastics. Demonstrating a commitment to ongoing sustainability efforts, 0.5% of profits are earmarked for such initiatives. Moreover, the hotel features an 'Earth Lab,' providing a platform for local stakeholders and guests to actively engage in sharing ideas and participating in initiatives focused on sustainability.
