This New Luxury Eco-Resort in Malta is Poised To Become a Beacon of Responsible Luxury Hospitality

@Six Senses Comino will be located on the shores of San Niklaw and San Marija bays, both enjoying sunrise aspects and linked by a coastal path.

Six Senses Comino Will Offer a Mediterranean Island Escape to Reshape and Reintegrate with Family and Friends. Located across two bays on a lesser-known Maltese island, Six Senses Comino will feature a resort and themed spa, farm-to-table dining, and an exciting array of cultural, leisure, wellness, retreat, and sporting activities.

Midway between Malta and Gozo, Comino is a small and peaceful island with rugged cliffs scattered with wild herbs and flowers and bright turquoise waters, including the famous Blue Lagoon. Classified as a Natura 2000 site, its cliffs are a safe resting spot for migratory birds, and its waters protect abundant marine life, making it a paradise for divers. Whereas Malta’s 7,000-year cultural heritage bears witness to its strategic geographical position, as great civilizations passed through or settled, Comino was a refuge for exiled knights and philosophers. Today, it offers a complete change of pace as a tranquil island escape.

The resort will be situated on the shores of San Niklaw and San Marija bays, both offering breathtaking sunrise views and connected by a scenic coastal path.

Belvedere Architecture has designed 71 low-rise suites that overlook the bay, providing guests with private decks to relish the captivating vistas of the Mediterranean Sea. The architectural design harmonizes with the island’s natural beauty, featuring a palette of stone and timber that echoes Comino’s geology and garigue shrubland. Each spacious suite blends seamlessly with the outdoors, with full-height openings and terraces that blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces.

The upper floors boast double-aspect terraces, allowing you to follow the sun from sunrise yoga to sunset cocktails. On the ground floor, infinity pools mimic private rock pools, inviting you to unwind and revel in the gentle shallows as the tides ebb and flow.

While at the Maltese resort, you’ll have exclusive access to San Niklaw bay, as well as a communal swimming pool and deck area serviced by a bar and grill.

Indulge in delectable farm-to-table dining experiences at the signature restaurant, where fresh produce sourced from local Maltese farmers takes center stage. Sip on carefully crafted cocktails at the destination bar or unwind in the lobby bar with a favorite book from the library lounge. Six Senses Comino ensures that every member of the family is catered to, thanks to the innovative Grow With Six Senses program. Children and teens can engage in activities that encompass the six dimensions of wellness – social, environmental, physical, spiritual, emotional, and intellectual – while parents enjoy leisurely al fresco lunches or lose themselves in the pages of a timeless classic.

Prepare to embark on a transformative journey of wellness and rejuvenation at the 1,000-square-meter Six Senses Spa. The spa will also be the backdrop for a range of guided retreats curated by experts, spiritual leaders, and artistic communities. Dance, practice yoga, engage in emotional and physical healing, and tap into the power of the island’s extraordinary nature as you learn, grow, and transform.

For those seeking an even more secluded experience, Six Senses Comino offers 19 standalone retreats along the east-facing shoreline of Santa Marija. These retreats, featuring two to four bedrooms, blend harmoniously with the natural environment, with green roofing and stepped designs that follow the island’s terrain. Each retreat boasts a large garden and a private central courtyard with a secluded pool. While enjoying the tranquility of Santa Marija bay, you’ll still have access to all the resort facilities over at San Niklaw, ensuring a seamless and unforgettable experience.

At Six Senses Comino, sustainability lies at the heart of the new resort.

The visionary design by HV Hospitality, a subsidiary of Hili Ventures, aligns with Comino’s ambitious sustainability goals. The existing structures will be carefully dismantled, allowing for the regeneration of important areas of the island and the reduction of retreat heights to a single level, enhancing the island’s skyline. The use of timber, with its low embodied energy and compatibility with prefabrication, combined with hard stone cladding, contributes significantly to the resort’s low-carbon objectives and LEED certification goals. The resort’s commitment to energy efficiency includes natural cross-ventilation, thermal mass utilization, and the incorporation of low-consumption systems and solar thermal units.

When it comes to accessibility, Six Senses Comino is conveniently located between Malta and Gozo. Direct flights to Malta International Airport from major European cities are followed by a short 15-minute boat transfer from Ċirkewwa Harbor, bringing you to the idyllic shores of Comino.

The highly anticipated opening of Six Senses Comino, Malta is slated for 2027.
