How to Book Six Senses IHG Awards

Six Senses is a collection of 19 luxurious wellness resort properties in far-flung locations all around the globe. The chain was purchased by IHG in 2019 and the properties have been slowly integrated into the IHG Rewards Club loyalty program. To date, you can book a total of at least 9 Six Senses hotels with IHG points. Even better, Six Senses IHG awards are a pretty good value.

How Much Are Award Stays at Six Senses Properties?

Like other IHG Rewards Club award stays, free nights at Six Senses Resorts and Spas are dynamically priced. Award prices fluctuate along with cash rates. As you might expect for a luxury chain, you can expect Six Senses stays to be quite pricey.

We’re happy to report that the Fourth Night Free benefit offered by the IHG Rewards Club Premier Credit Card does apply to stays at Six Senses properties. This is one way to increase the return when booking award stays, as your fourth consecutive night will cost 0 points.

Here is a comparison of cash vs. award rates at a number of Six Senses IHG awards at their properties bookable during summer 2022:

PropertyPoints/NightUSD/NightCents per IHG Point
Fiji100,000$8520.9
Ibiza150,000$1,4731.0
Kaplankaya, Turkey80,000$1,0321.3
Laamu, Maldives100,000$1,0761.1
Ninh Van Bay, Vietnam75,000$7271.0
Shaharat, Israel150,000$1,0000.7
Uluwatu, Bali60,000$4950.8
Yao Noi, Thailand110,000$5340.5
Zil Payson, Seychelles200,000$2,2001.1

This isn’t a comprehensive review of all the properties or hard look at award prices. I went with what I could easily find. But this quick review shows that you can likely get better-than-average value from your IHG points at many Six Senses properties.

I’d also like to highlight a handful of the properties from the Six Senses portfolio that interest me the most.

Six Senses IHG Awards Seychelles

Six Senses Zil Pasyon, Seychelles

The award price for Six Senses Zil Payson, Seychelles may be an astronomical 200,000 points per night, but you get a 2,150 square-foot panorama pool villa that looks stunning. More than stunning. I’ve seen few hotels that rival these island views. You even have a private pool.

Do note that award nights are nonrefundable if canceled within 14 days of arrival. You better be sure you will be able to go before booking!

Six Senses Uluwatu, Bali

The Six Senses Uluwatu Bali is the cheapest property I found in terms of its award rate. The value per point isn’t as good as some of the other locations, but it is an intriguing option for an award, with beautiful suites and a clifftop setting.

Six Senses Yao Noi, Thailand

Out on an island near Phuket is the Six Senses Yao Noi, which overlooks a lovely bay dotted with islands. Enjoy a luxurious private pool villa and relax amid the jungle, far away from the rest of the world.

Six Senses IHG Awards Israel (Negev Desert)

Six Senses Shaharut, Israel

Located out in the harsh Negev desert, the location of this Six Senses property is what intrigued me the most. It is set up on a ridge with beautiful sunset views. Another unique opportunity is the camel ride offered by the hotel. To top it off, the suites are gorgeous.

Final Thoughts on Booking Six Senses Using IHG Points

Six Senses IHG awards take redeeming IHG Rewards points to a new level. There aren’t many properties available yet, but there are a good number in the pipeline. As long as the award rates remain good, and you can find availability, these may make excellent redemptions for people flush with IHG points.
