Banyan Tree is introducing new Wellness Sanctuaries at select properties over the next year in anticipation of guests’ prioritising health and wellbeing as part of their holiday.
The Wellbeing Sanctuaries will combine club floors or resort wings, dedicated dining options, spas and “multifunctional practice spaces” in one exclusive location.
“While the resumption of business travel is dubious given a paradigm shift in the future of work, we have absolute conviction that leisure travel will rebound and with a purposeful direction into discovering personal wellbeing practices that work in this new normal,” said Ms Ho Renyung, VP, Brand HQ of Banyan Tree Holdings.
“We have always been known for our Spa experiences – we are now going beyond that, in our unique approach of combining personal wellbeing and greater sustainability into one concept. Hearing our guests’ feedback so far, we believe this is unique, innovative and a first in the industry,” Renyung said.
“Our mission is to demystify wellbeing and democratise it for everyone. We want wellbeing to be inspiring, accessible and impactful, in a way that can be woven into everyday life,” said Lee Woon Hoe, Executive Director of Wellbeing.
“Our philosophy is that wellbeing is about the connection between self, others, and nature – how we balance this dynamic within and without, is at the core of a good life.”
The Wellbeing Sanctuary concept enables leisure travellers to design and combine a leisure vacation with wellbeing elements, centred around eight pillars – Physical vitality; Cultivate the Mind; Harmony with nature; Sustained practices; Interactions, Intimacy, Involvement; Learning and Development; Sleep Well; and Dietary awareness.
A stay at Banyan Tree’s Wellbeing Sanctuary includes:
- Accommodation at a wellbeing suite or villa designed for sleep enhancement
- In-room amenities such as yoga mats, stretch bands and singing bowls for private practice
- Pre-sleep bath and body rituals
- Balanced healthy meals and mini-bar provisions using locally sourced ingredients
- Bodywork and Spa therapy experience
- Access to 50 simple but impactful wellbeing activities, inspired by the destination
- Personalised, take-home wellbeing guide for sustained learning
Banyan Tree’s new executive clubs will be launched first in China, and then progressively in Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Morocco, Thailand and Vietnam.
