Could Six Senses one day open a resort in Haiti?

The company recently held a working visit to Haiti led by Chairman Wolf Hengst, according to a statement from the Ministry of Tourism.

The trip followed a meeting in New York last month that included Hengst, Haiti Tourism Minister Stephanie Villedrouin, Haiti Finance and Economy Minister Marie Carmelle Jean Marie and a consultant from investment bank Lazard.

Six Senses is one of the world’s leading spa and resort companies.

“Six Senses is interested in investing in Ile a Vache,” the Ministry said.

It currently has one property in the Caribbean — a Six Senses spa in Punta Cana in the neighbouring Dominican Republic at the Puntacana Resort & Club.

According to Haiti’s Ministry of Tourism, a potential Six Senses property could form part of the government’s plans for the island of Ile a Vache.
