Raffles Hotels & Resorts is raising the bar when it comes to rest with the launch of an intuitive and thoughtful wellbeing program designed to help guests unwind, get a peaceful night’s rest and wake up feeling refreshed.
The new Raffles Sleep Rituals service, introduced as part of the brand’s commitment to enhancing the comfort of its guests, will be piloted during the turndown service at four luxurious locations: Raffles Dubai, Raffles Makati, Raffles Seychelles and Raffles Europejski Warsaw.
The slumber-inducing rituals will provide guests with a luxurious eye pillow made from DreamSoft® linen, calming ‘good-night cards’ that encourage mindfulness and contentment before bedtime and a five-minute sand timer, engraved with their personal details, to help them unwind before they drift off to sleep.
Raffles has also partnered with luxury skincare brand, Aromatherapy Associates, to create a Deep Relax oil that is unique to its Sleep Rituals experience. Made from a blend of vetiver, sandalwood and chamomile – ingredients that help calm the mind and restore regular sleep patterns – the oil is custom-designed to promote sleep and alleviate the restlessness associated with jet lag.
Additional sleep-enhancing amenities will be available to guests staying in premium and deluxe rooms. Extra benefits will include a unique sleep kit and a menu of food items carefully selected to help guests mitigate the effects of travel, stress and jet lag, promoting their comfort and rest.
The Sleep Rituals have been developed as part of Raffles Hotels & Resorts’ wellbeing strategy, which focuses on enabling guests to feel their emotional best during their stay. This global blueprint for guest wellness encompasses three core pillars, including:
- Serenity: creative rituals throughout the guest journey
- Design with Harmony: creating spaces with wellness in mind and incorporating elements of wellness design such as Feng Shui and Biophilia
- Pleasure: exploring the relationship between nutrition and wellbeing.
“Modern travellers are challenged with hectic schedules and time zone changes, which disrupts their sleep patterns and can impact their physical and mental wellbeing. Our new Sleep Rituals, part of the global wellness program at Raffles, provide guests with an unmatched relaxation experience, supporting their emotional wellbeing throughout their stay,” explained Lindsay Madden-Nadeau, Global Well-Being Director, AccorHotels.
Continued Madden-Nadeau, “We are committed to providing innovative services that ensure our guests feel welcome and understood, valued and cared for at all times, and our new sleep initiative is testament to that, offering what many crave most during their travels: the chance to rest and rejuvenate. Following a successful pilot, we will look into expanding this initiative in more hotels.”
