The DNA: Located in the Arava Valley in the south of Israel’s Negev Desert, Six Senses Shaharut is a modern reinterpretation of nomadic structures, reminiscent of the Nabataean community which occupied the area over 2000 years ago. Constructed in an eco-friendly manner, the masterplan introduces architecture and interiors that blend seamlessly with its desert environment. Six Senses Shaharut aims to bring guests in sync with nature and its elements by reinforcing the relationship between the inside and outside. The interior design draws on the ancient Incense Route’s assets, stretching from Mediterranean ports across the Levant to India and beyond, as the inspiration is to create spaces and moods that reflect their locale. Inside, the furniture and fittings have been sourced from local artisans to complement the unique weathered rock formations, utilizing natural stone, wood, and copper. The interior doors are custom made from reclaimed teak, which was rescued from disused boats, houses, and footbridges. Over two-hundred years old, each piece has its own story to tell.
