There’s a whole new meaning to freeriding at Six Senses Kitzbuehel Alps. Residential owners who purchase a chalet at the sustainable resort development, which is set to open in summer 2021, will be among the first to own and drive the latest all-electric Porsche Taycan. The all new zero-emissions supercar which will take Porsche into a new era is the perfect accessory for a chalet that not only aims to set new standards in Alpine aesthetics but also defines the very essence of sustainable living.
Supporting the Six Senses commitment to look after the environment and communities where it operates, the Taycan (which translates as lively young horse) marks Porsche’s entry into the electric market. The Taycan’s revolutionary technology can charge 63 miles (100 kilometers) range in just 4 minutes.
“Sustainability is not just about what we do, but who we do it with,” said Bernhard Bohnenberger, president of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas. “Our relationship with Porsche and its zero-emission model underlines our position to build and operate in ways that minimizes our ecological impact.”
The Taycan is expected to have a minimum range of 311 miles (500 kilometers) and its top model can sprint from 0 to 62 miles (0 to 100 kilometers) in under 3 seconds. It presents itself as both, a pure breed sports car and a comfortable ride, engineered for every terrain. The Taycan truly is a silent force of nature.
Its four-wheel drive capability ensures that owners will be able to carve with confidence both on the piste and on the road.
“It’s not only about the excitement the car exudes, and the added value for the chalet buyer – this strategic alliance has deeper roots. With what we do, we want to ensure that our planet remains a safe and stable environment, full of natural wonders, for generations to come. We must take responsibility. Six Senses aims to be plastic free by 2022, Porsche are now diesel free. This is a clear signal that both brands are thinking in the same direction. All we do is plant the seed,” said Michael Staininger, co-developer of Six Senses Kitzbuehel Alps.
“This is the perfect synergy. The evolution of alpine real estate, paired with the evolution of the Porsche sports car. We not only want to embrace the future, we want to shape it.” said Klaus Maerzendorfer, head of sales at Porsche Austria.
Six Senses Kitzbuehel Alps lies just 20 minutes from the eponymous town center, high above the village of Jochberg in the Austrian Tyrol. The resort faces the majestic peaks of the Hohe Tauern – the largest nature reserve in the Alps – and borders a protected moss land where wild orchids bloom in the summer months. It features 80 guest accommodations and a small village of 60 private residences available for sale, 15 of which are freestanding top of the line chalets.
Future owners can select from four- to five-bedroom chalets and also one- to four-bedroom apartments. All privately-owned units can be placed into the resort’s rental pool. As with all Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas projects, architecture and design blend into their surroundings. Architecture by IAW fuses with the artistic craftsmanship of master designer Martin Brudnizki to create a modern interpretation of classic Alpine style. Natural light and materials such as stone and wood create a warm and stylishly comfortable atmosphere, while energy efficiency and home technology are both put to good use.
Additional highlights include the resort’s private access to the ski slopes and the availability of all Six Senses services to private property owners including a Six Senses spa and pioneering wellness concept.
The Kitzbuehel region is a year-round alpine destination, featuring world-class ski slopes, outdoor activities plus excellent entertainment, dining and shopping. Hosting the greatest and most spectacular downhill race in the world, the charming little town with centuries of history and traditions has become an incomparable sports and jet set hub.
Six Senses Kitzbuehel Alps is located 120 minutes by car from Munich, and 90 minutes from Salzburg and Innsbruck airports.
