Six Senses Maxwell oozes historical charm. Located on the site of a former nutmeg plantation, the hotel is housed in a series of 14 three- and four-storey colonial-style heritage buildings dating back to the 1920s.
Nearly 100 years old, the building has been beautifully (and sustainably) conserved with its elegant Art Deco frontage, exposed brickwork and original lion head rainspouts intact. The chic interiors, the work of renowned French designer Jacques Garcia, feature intricate handwoven silk rugs, ethically-sourced African wenge hardwood floors, pleated lampshades and high-backed velvet chairs. In other parts of the hotel, you’ll walk on stone floors that have been recycled from medieval churches and cathedrals in Italy.
The 138 guest rooms and suites, spread throughout four floors, are just as meticulously decorated with their custom furnishings and original artwork. Designed to be havens of comfort, they feature handmade mattresses, organic bed linens and wellness books. Even the 25-metre lap pool, located on the rooftop, is custom-made by a Belgian company from raw and recyclable materials. Other facilities include a gym, spa, two restaurants and three bars.
