Continuing to bring bespoke services to its guests, the Peninsula Hotels have announced their newest initiative, the Peninsula Wellness, a spa, wellness and healthy dining and lifestyle program. With a purpose to relax and rejuvenate the mind and body and allow their guests to escape the stresses of modern living, the program will be rolled out across all Peninsula Hotels. At the same time a Peninsula Wellness Centre has been inaugurated as a global center of spa and wellness excellence at The Peninsula Bangkok.
While the Peninsula Wellness program itself is not new – it was first launched in 2006, the new Peninsula Wellness reinforces their commitment to meet the evolving lifestyles of guests at all Peninsula hotels. Combining the best of Western and Eastern health philosophies, the program will offer some new treatments by expert therapists including the 120-minute Peninsula Sleep Ceremony – exclusively created by ESPA for stressed travelers. The exclusive spa journey will offer guests a sleep bath, guided meditation and breathing techniques to rebalance electromagnetic energies, a hot stone body massage and a face massage.
A new range of Thai massage treatments, including a therapeutic 80-minute Simply Peninsula Royal Thai body massage and a 110-minute Simply Peninsula Royal Thai Massage with Herbal Compress, introduced in partnership with the world-famous Wat Pho Temple Massage School in Bangkok, which is celebrated for its health-giving massage techniques based on traditional Thai medicine.
Also on offer will be ‘Sattva by Simply Peninsula’, designed by Subtle Energies to combine classic Ayurveda methods with contemporary massage techniques, such as remedial and lymphatic drainage and enhanced by the therapeutic and sensory benefits of active ingredients of Sattva’s Ayurveda Aromatherapy essential oils.
The hotel company also launched its first dedicated Peninsula Wellness Centre at The Peninsula Spa in Bangkok. The new Spa will coordinate all of the group’s spa, wellness and lifestyle offerings, as well as provide year-round training by accredited experts on new, industry-leading techniques and programs. The new spa has been certified as a Biologique Recherche – Ambassade de la Beauté, the first hotel spa in the world to receive this prestigious accolade and will offer Biologique Recherche’s award-winning natural facial and skincare treatments.
There is also a lot of focus on nutrition with a selection of dishes made using locally sourced ingredients with seasonal fruits and vegetables, sustainably sourced seafood, superior cuts of meat, nutritious whole grains, organic spices and market-fresh herbs. Naturally Peninsula cuisine will not only offer low-fat, low-calorie options but will take a more holistic approach to healthy eating by offering gluten-free, low-sugar and high protein options.
