Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour is launching a new offering that further integrates health and wellness into all aspects of the guest experience.
Developed in partnership with Australia’s Original Healthy Chef and founder of The Healthy Chef brand and company, Teresa Cutter, the new offering includes an exclusive room package as well as a series of nourishing drinks incorporating natural ingredients such as 100% pure marine collagen, matcha and 100% natural WPI protein, to support immunity, glowing skin and hair and total wellbeing.
The COVID pandemic has brought the awareness of personal health and wellbeing to the forefront of our collective consciousness – clearly illustrating that a strong and healthy immune system lowers one’s vulnerability to infections.
Within the luxury hospitality market, wellness is now an expectation. It is a dominant consumer value essential to the quality of a guest’s stay – a desirable draw that promises enriching and relaxing experiences.
Greg Brady, General Manager, Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour, explains: “For many years, Accor and Sofitel have been pioneers of the wellbeing movement, constantly looking for more ways to integrate wellbeing efforts throughout the guest journey. With this new offering, our intention is to provide our guests with a sense of wellbeing during their stay, and that they leave our property feeling better than when they arrived; better rested, more nourished and in a happier state of mind.”
The collaboration with The Healthy Chef is a great complement to the hotel’s existing wellness offering, which includes De-Light menus with enhanced vegetarian and gluten-free options, sleep rituals featuring pillow menus, aromatherapy and the highly-acclaimed Sofitel MyBed, a state-of-the-art Technogym gym, and yoga mats and light weights provided in all the suites or available upon request.
Teresa Cutter, Founder and CEO of The Healthy Chef, comments: “The foundation of good health begins with the food we eat. These delicious smoothies, juices and restorative drinks offer wonderful health benefits for the body and mind. Boasting a powerhouse of protein, antioxidants, fibres, minerals and vitamins which are easily absorbed into the body, while nourishing the cells from the inside out to support immunity and total wellbeing.”
Available through in-room dining, Champagne Bar and conferences, the four new signature drinks developed with The Healthy Chef and Sydney mixologist Kurtis Bosley feature natural ingredients such as 100% marine collagen (for glowing skin, hair & nails, and healthy joints), ceremonial-grade matcha (an anti-ageing, immune-boosting, antioxidant-rich green tea loaded with chlorophyll and L-theanine to help control stress) and 100% natural WPI Protein (a 100% whole food ideal for high energy, lean toned muscle and sports recovery).
