Six Senses Shaharut
Negev Desert, Israel
Experience the rich biblical heritage of Ancient Negev Desert
Fascinating, enchanting, and of biblical proportions, the Negev Desert is the epitome of desert landscapes. It is on this boundless horizon often described as the nexus of heaven and earth that Six Senses Shaharut is integrated into a dramatic cliff. It is at one with the almost-supernatural panorama, where sunsets meld into the orange dunes to become an inky sky scattered with stardust. This inspired location named Shaharut, which translates as the moment just before dawn, adds yet another dimension to the portfolio of incredible natural settings that Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas calls home. History abounds in this region which was home to the ancient and fascinating Midianite tribe.
The resort's 60 suites and pool villas are spread across 46 acres with panoramic landscape views of the Edom Mountains and Negev Desert. The villas are built from and inspired by local rocks and pigments, with many furnishing elements sourced from a partnership with local community artisans.
Six Senses Shaharut offers a creative approach to cuisine, combining the best of Israeli and Mediterranean influences while embracing the Eat With Six Senses philosophy of local, fresh and seasonal produce.
The resort’s many on-site attractions are diverse and out-of-the-ordinary in the truest Six Senses tradition. A desert activity center incorporates the fascinating Earth Lab, where the property showcases its sustainability initiatives to reduce consumption, produce locally and support communities and ecosystems.
Guests are invited to visit Earth Lab to reconnect with the natural world and learn some simple life hacks to make a positive lifestyle difference. There are functioning camel stables with an arena and grooming area and from where early morning and twilight camel rides set out.
