Four Seasons Bangkok set to open in February 2020

 A NEW LEVEL OF wellness luxury is coming to Bangkok in collaboration with GOCO Hospitality at the Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River, which will begin accepting reservations for guest arrivals starting Feb. 1, 2020.

Set along 200 metres of the ancient riverfront of Bangkok’s Chao Phraya River, the Jean-Michel Gathy designed Four Seasons Hotel will add a new level of riverside hospitality to Southeast Asia’s most popular city destination.

In addition to the 299 guest rooms, including suites with garden terraces and an extraordinary, two-storey Presidential Suite, guests will also be treated to a world-class luxury urban GOCO Hospitality-conceptualized spa that maintains a special focus on mind, body and soul.

In addition to the spa conceptualization, GOCO Hospitality also assisted Four Seasons with market research & feasibility studies (conducted  its sister company, Horwath HTL Health and Wellness, strategy and operational recommendations, technical services including conceptual and schematic design and additional design development review

The spa will feature nine single and double treatment rooms, one spa suite with thermal facilities, a private garden and bathing areas, a beauty salon, male barber, gender-specific heat and water experiences, along with a gym and a mind and body studio.

The spa also includes an Advanced Beauty Room, a place where science meets natural wellness through a range of technologically advanced slimming and anti-ageing treatments for men and women

Founder and CEO of GOCO Hospitality, Ingo Schweder, says the Bangkok riverfront demands a new spa facility that is set apart from the existing offering in the area. The spa that we have helped create at Four Seasons offers something completely different. It focuses on the healing power of water.

Described by Gathy as “sometimes dramatic, sometimes intimate, but always charismatic”, the hotel will integrate successive indoor and outdoor spaces through a series of cascading building, courtyards, terraces and water features

In celebration of Thailand’s legendary craftsmanship and artistry, the hotel will include art pieces from Gathy’s own collection, along with a dedicated Art Space for contemporary Thai art.

Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River will also offer two infinity pools overlooking the river and a range of other thoughtful amenities for families, such as a complimentary kids club; private boat dock; extensive event spaces; a waterfront ballroom and terrace; and world-class culinary offerings, including new dining concepts introduced for the first time.

As an introductory offer, the hotel is offering US $100 credit towards dining or exclusive spa treatments with bookings of a minimum of two nights and above.

GOCO Hospitality is a pioneering consultancy, development and management company creating, designing and operating tomorrow’s spa and wellness hospitality concepts. From initial market research through to concept, design and management, the company’s experienced research, creative and operational teams collaborate closely with clients to create innovative wellness solutions specially tailored to meet the demands of the location and target market.

 

 

Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas continues to deliver on sustainability priority

UNCOMPROMISING SUSTAINABILITY is in the soul of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas. Being environmentally friendly and socially responsible translates to meaningful and measurable actions.

Each year since 2012, sustainability figures are gathered from all operations. Everything, from reducing, reusing and recycling waste to farm to table goodness and sustainable food sourcing, caring for communities, house-bottled water, eliminating plastic and protecting marine ecosystems and birdlife is scrutinized.

Understandably, it takes quite a while to collect all the results. Year on year, they indicate the brand’s vision is audacious, but flourishing.

Here are the highlights from last year.

Individual properties monitor their environmental efforts and contributions to local communities was led by the group’s vice-president of sustainability Jeff Smith.

“The travel industry is growing at a rapid rate on a planet that has limited natural resources. That means all hospitality leaders have a responsibility to stand up and be accountable for making a sustainable difference and achieving measurable results, he said.

“Our health and wellness ethos is around making our guests feel better inside and out, so it makes sense for our social and environmental policies to make them feel good about their choice of vacation too.”

All of the group’s hotels and resorts participate in Cornell University’s Hotel Sustainability Benchmarking program, which compares their performance against a global dataset of their peers.

Each Six Senses resort and hotel features an Earth Lab, which promotes sustainable living in inspirational and innovative ways. The space is used to host workshops that empower guests and community members to learn about and connect more closely with the natural world.

Individual Six Senses properties manage their own Sustainability Funds with sales added directly from house-bottled water and popular stuffed animal mascots that reflect each location. Sponsored projects in 2018 totaled US $635,422.39.

Jeff Smith added: “Our aim is to eliminate our resorts of waste, toxins and plastic, and to go beyond this to make measurable positive impacts in our local ecosystems and communities.”

Introducing SEEN Beach Club Samui

  

SET ON THE STUNNING ISLAND OF KOH SAMUI, Thailand, the soon-to-open SEEN Beach Club Samui will be making waves just in time for the festive season.

Opening in late 2019, the new beach club boasts an abundance of character, style and a touch the 50s retro-chic.

The new beach club is located in Chaweng Beach along a wide stretch of golden sand, and  references nostalgic haunts, both real and imagined. The aesthetic is a modern take on the beach clubs of Miami, Palm Springs and Tulum in their yesteryears, with a splash of  bright colours and clean, graphic lines reminiscent of the 1950s design movement.

It will feature an all-day restaurant, in which to eat, drink and socialize; all decorated in technicoloured hues on 6000 square-metre expanse. SEEN Beach Club Samui offers great photographic sea views, and filled with instagrammable opportunities where friends can capture the moment and keep the memory forever.

International luxury comfort food, ranging from traditional Thai to Italian and American will be prepared by top chefs lead by the ex-head chef of Wolfgang Puck in Sydney and served alongside a great beverage menu that ranges from innovative tropical cocktails and fine bubblies, to selected spirits and ultra-cold beers.

An eclectic selection of live music and guest DJs will provide a fun-filled energy, with a varying playlist from chill out jazz, to soul and funk, to club and deep house as the evening energy progresses.
