Newly opened hotel spas in Asia

9 Aug 2009

Going for a spa
treatment is almost de rigueur for
frequent travellers who want to de-stress after a hectic day of meetings.

Below are some
of the new hotel spas in the region to consider on your next trip:

  • The Novotel Hyderabad Airport Hotel at Rajiv Gandhi
    International Airport
    has launched its Serena Spa. It provides a choice of different types of massage
    from anti-stress head, neck and shoulder massage, Thai Yoga massage, Sports
    massage and Aromatic Back massage among others.

The 675sqm facility features
separate male and female changing areas with steam, shower and ice room; five
massage rooms with private shower; a back and foot massage room; a pedicure and
manicure room; and a herbal bath room.

  • InterContinental Hotels and Resorts (IHG) has introduced two new spa treatments
    using Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) herbal spa products that are created
    by Eu Yan Sang. The spa treatments and herbal products are only available in IHG
    properties in Greater China.

The two new
treatments are based on the “Yin and Yang” principle. The Yin ritual is geared
for relaxing to help calm the body and mind. It also acts like a detox
treatment. The Yang ritual, on the other hand, boosts the Qi or energy. It also improves circulation by clearing any
blockages.

The treatments
use 100 percent natural herbs with no additive such as artificial colourings,
preservatives and artificial fragrances.

  • Grant Hyatt Doha recently unveiled the 4,000sqm Arabian-style
    Jaula Spa, featuring 12 treatment suites, a relaxation area with a pool, a
    health club and a ladies’ salon among others. The VIP and couples suites include
    a whirlpool and a lounging area.

Spa treatments
at Jaula Spa (part of the Hyatt Pure
collection of spa) range from massages, scrubs to facials, all using natural
ingredients from Qatar.

There is also a
spa boutique located adjacent to the spa lobby carrying products from Anne
Semonin and Aromatherapy Associates.
