Thread subject says it all.

Not sure how I feel about this...

Maybe they'll be more receptive to what happened at Six Senses Zil Pasyon Seychelles than the previous regime.

Not surprised, they prepared the bride beautifully. Just IHG is a bit boring.

hope no one had bought residences at zil pasyon prior to event there and now sale

this is why i maintain brands are dead, as this will almost certainly continue. it is also may be that soneva founders have already sold majority stake in soneva

whatever one thinks of doronin, could have been infinitely worse

i think LVMH acquiring belmond is only 'good news' for a while

articles say six senses currently operating at a loss...

wonder if other hotel companies made bids or not

seems IHG is partly using this as a tax strategy

Wow, I cannot believe this news.

Six Senses were/are my favourite brand these days, but I cannot believe they would sell out to a tacky chain like IHG. How will Intercontinental market the Six Senses portfolio? It doesn't really fit in with anything else they had.

Still, on the brighter side, at least Six Senses aren't yet another brand that end up with Marriott...
