Palazzo Salviati Cesi Mellini reopens, after a thorough renovation in full compliance with the constraints dictated by the Superintendence of Fine Arts, and becomes Six Senses Rome, the first urban hotel in Italy of the international luxury hôtellerie brand.
The historic building is located in the heart of the Eternal City and preserves the old-world charm of the period palace combined with the best tradition of international hospitality. In the complex renovation process, the ancient soul of the palace was preserved with its classic elements that are perfectly integrated with the new contemporary and eco-sustainable design elements by Architect Patricia Urquiola.
The Unique Beauty of the Six Senses Rome Hotel
The Six Senses Rome – Palazzo Salviati Cesi Mellini is a veritable treasure chest of wonders, in a unique historical setting, welcoming guests with a monumental marble staircase decorated with 600 columns, topped by a skylight that floods the historic staircase of distribution to the floors with natural light.
From Palladian to the extensive presence of Travertino Romano Classico, the local marble of Rome, Margraf marble and natural stones embellish the reception, common areas, café-restaurant, and spa.
A Luxurious Spa Inspired by Ancient Rome
The underground spa is an evocative place inspired by ancient Roman baths where the memory of ancient rituals is blended with high-tech, high-touch therapies such as biohacking, sound therapy, body cocoon, and breathing exercises.
The walls of the tepidarium, clad in Travertine, are finely decorated with laurel leaves worked in bas-relief, water-jet-cut, and inspired by the myth of Apollo and Daphne; the floor is made of Palladian with Verde Cipollino marble grit and recalls the Roman architectural tradition.
Also prominent in the Roman bath layout are the mighty shaped portals in Travertine, wall tiles of the same marble with a cannulated finish, precious artistic mosaic inlays, and a one-piece washbasin in Verde Cipollino.
Combining the uniqueness of a special material such as marble with a design, consulting and installation service at the highest level, Margraf confirms itself as an essential key strategic partner for architects, interior designers, and international contractors who want to create not only unique buildings but above all highly distinctive and exclusive places.
Three-dimensional coatings, parabolic shapes, elimination of waste, computerized design, and numerically controlled machining represent an unceasing dialogue between matter and ingenuity, where innovation does not take the place of craftsmanship, but challenges the rules of marble, creating new opportunities.
