    responsibility in the hospitality sector. It seems only right then

    that the GDS code GR was reserved for Six Senses private

The introduction of the toll free lines and new GDS code - GR - will simplify the

    booking process for consumers as well as travel agents. Three new toll free

    the range of reservations options available and support Six Senses business

    growth in these emerging local markets.

The new toll free numbers offer guests in these regions an immediate voice

    reservation and assistance service for Six Senses Resorts managed under the

    brand names Soneva, Six Senses Hideaways, Six Senses Latitudes and Evason,

    plus Six Senses Destination Spas. For the United States, the number is 1-800-

591-7480, and the hours of operation are 8am-6pm EST, Monday to Friday and

    8am-12am EST, Saturday and Sunday.

In other news, Conde Nast Traveller UK

    awarded Six Senses Hideaway Samui

    their top honors, with the resort winning

    and more than one full point ahead of its

    nearest contender.

Not only did Six Senses Hideaway Samui walk away with the ultimate award, it

    Sowa Rigpa‟ is Tibetan for the Tibetan

    science of healing, and according to

    Tibetan texts the human body is based
