Mountain Village just approved a new hotel – Six Senses Mountain Village – that will accommodate those looking to enjoy a high-end hotel experience near Telluride! Just a gondola ride away from the heart of Telluride and steps away from Telluride Ski Resort, a beautiful lot is proposed to be soon transformed into Mountain Village's newest and trendiest mountain resort experience.
Originally established to meet the growing demand for living in Telluride, Mountain Village mainly consists of upscale lodges, gorgeous condominiums and hotel resorts. Unlike downtown Telluride, Mountain Village residents don't even need to take the gondola to reach the Telluride Ski Resort — many condos and hotels are just steps away from the lifts.
While Mountain Village is known for its proximity to Telluride Ski resort, luxurious condos and endless unobstructed San Juan views, it's also known for its competitive housing market.
Well, our favorite ski town just approved hotel plans to offer new opportunities for luxury accommodations near the slopes.
While these plans are not set in stone, the Mountain Village Design Review Board's decision to approve the Six Senses Mountain Village design plans is a big step towards seeing this vision come to life for the Mountain Village community and visitors looking to experience the beauty of Telluride.
Are you looking to spend time in Telluride and Mountain Village? Here is everything we currently know about the new Six Senses Mountain Village hotel!
What is Happening in Mountain Village?
At the end of November 2022, the Mountain Village Design Review Board approved a final design review for a Six Senses Mountain Village Hotel that has been on their radar for a few years. The plans were first approved in 2010, and there have been multiple revisions to the general plans over the last decade.
After multiple iterations of the building design were reviewed, the board unanimously passed and provided a recommendation to Mountain Village Town Council on the major subdivision and rezone associated with the hotel. The Mountain Village Town Council will review and consider the project in January.
Six Senses luxury hotel and resort group put in a letter of intent to operate the approved hotel.
What Is the Six Senses Hotel Group?
The Six Senses luxury hotel brand
proposing to operate the Mountain Village hotel plans has stunning hotels in the most scenic and gorgeous areas of the world. Found on private islands in the Maldives, nestled in the French Alps and set amid the lush foliage of the Brazilian Mantiqueira Mountains, these resorts prioritize incorporating the local style of each location into stunning accommodations that fit seamlessly into the surroundings.
Six Senses also places a heavy emphasis on sustainability at every level of planning, designing and running their resorts. From energy-efficient practices to working with local service providers, Six Senses attempts to keep the community and planet in mind at every turn.
This luxury group is known to offer a three-to-one staff-to-guest ratio, so every visitor feels cared for and seen. The Mountain Village location could be the first Six Senses resort in the United States, kicking off its journey by running a hotel with groundbreaking architecture, inventive decor and a stunning backdrop.
What Will This Hotel Look Like?
The design motto that Six Senses hotels live by is "bringing the outside in." Six Senses Mountain Village’s design direction was inspired by the surrounding Mountain Village and San Juan Mountains.
The current hotel project will include 50 hotel beds, 20 condominiums, 31 lodge units, 18 employee dorms, two employee apartments, multiple restaurants and amenities as well as conference space and 22 underground parking spaces.
The plan also includes improvements to Village Center plazas, including back-of-house access, the Village Center trash enclosure and stair access from Mountain Village Boulevard to the Village Center Plaza area to provide a more seamless, aesthetic guest experience.
The overall project has a maximum height of 88 feet, 9 inches, to accommodate mountain views for surrounding buildings.
In addition, the proposed building design boasts a modern mountain luxury, with expansive balconies that take advantage of the 360-degree mountain views.
Where is the New Mountain Village Hotel?
Six Senses Mountain Village will be located where North Village Center Parking lot sits across from The Peaks. This premier location just blocks from the slopes and neighbors other stunning four-star hotels and luxury condominiums.
What Happens Next?
These plans are now in the hands of the Mountain Village Town Council, which will review the agenda in January 2023. We can expect some additional tweaks and changes to the overall design. Still, the board has shared their appreciation with the building design team for creating a blueprint that not only respects but also enhances the Mountain Village atmosphere.
When Will Six Senses Mountain Village Hotel Open?
As this project is still in the planning stages, the involved parties have not shared a timeline for when we can expect this new Mountain Village hotel to open.
When it does open its doors, there will be several new Mountain Village accommodations to consider for individuals looking to stay in this area.
People looking for an exciting vacation in the Telluride mountains will be able to take advantage of the unparalleled concierge services and experience the planning that Six Senses hotels provide.
Individuals who might want a more spacious option for spending time in the San Juan Mountains could consider the 20 condominiums that will be available. For an even higher level of luxury, the more expansive lodge options will be meticulously designed to offer maximum levels of comfort.
