Six Senses is going deep into the woods Down Under, converting a heritage-listed mansion in the Dandenong Ranges in Victoria into a boutique hotel.

Located 40km from Melbourne, the mansion — reminiscent of an ocean liner — is one of the finest examples of domestic Art Deco in Australia.

The adjacent Alfred Nicolas Memorial Gardens are now managed by Parks Victoria.

With initially 43 guest accommodations and hospitality venues, the interior design of Six Senses Burnham Beeches — named after an English forest — will be “a contemporary interpretation of classic elegance”.

Subject to planning applications, the masterplan will incorporate a premium glamping offer to bring the total accommodations to 82.

Six Senses Spa on the lower ground level of the mansion will provide a botanical environment housing a tea lounge, treatment rooms, gym, hydro area and sauna, and relaxation spaces.

“For Six Senses Burnham Beeches to be regenerative, it will not be a static place,” says Six Senses CEO Neil Jacobs.

“We’ll evolve and respond to bring the rich heritage of Burnham Beeches to life, inviting moments of exploration, discovery, connection to nature, and delight through interactive gastronomy, wellness, and sustainability experiences.”

Owners Trenerry Consortium’s masterplan includes development of a Village Square, which gives hotel guests access to an additional collection of venues: The Hearth, The Barn, Steak House, The Baker, Brew House, and Providore.
