Silversea Cruises is set to introduce a new spa program called Otium from November 2021, initially aboard its brand new vessel, Silver Dawn
Inspired by the Italian company’s rich heritage, Otium arrives following the recent debut of Silversea’s culinary experience, S.A.L.T. that is is centred on food culture and destinations.
Otium will offer guests “superb moments of comfort and delight” through a range of “unique experiences of relaxation and indulgence, in a plethora of moments designed by our experts to offer comfort and pleasure in spa, suite and ship,” Silversea said.
The ultra-luxury cruise line said Otium “will transform the way you relax and enjoy your personal space while bringing ultra-luxury touches of indulgence.”
“Our culture has always celebrated the ability to joyfully live in the moment: this is at the core of what makes our lifestyle one of the most sought after,” said Barbara Muckermann, Silversea’s Chief Marketing Officer.
“Even more specifically, for Otium we were inspired by the Romans’ philosophy of caring for the body and mind, and their baths, precursors of our modern-day spas: they were the designated places where enjoyment and wellness were organically connected through the architectural beauty and luxurious materials of the halls, the invigorating properties of the water pools and saunas, but also the music, poetry, food, wine and conversation. With this in mind, we wanted to create a holistic experience focused on pleasure.”
“[Otium] will start before the spa, perhaps picking with a butler the fragrance that will accompany you or choosing between a robe and a kimono and fully unfold at the spa, with a personalised path combining special treatments, thermal areas, precious natural elements and ingredients — and also unexpected luxurious touches, like sipping your favourite cocktail or snacking on delicious canapés in the most comfortable armchair,” Muckermann explains in a Silversea blog post.
The Otium concept also includes a brand-new mattress, dubbed the Otium Soft Touch, which will sit alongside a redesigned pillow menu, choice of blankets and pillow mists.
Silver Dawn is a sister-ship of Silver Muse and the recently launched Silver Moon.
Silversea plans to roll out the Otium concept across its fleet in due course.
