Anantara Siam Bangkok unveils new contemporary Thai-inspired guestrooms

DESIGNED BY Jeffrey A. Wilkes of LTW Designworks, recognized for his ability to blend cosmopolitan influences with tradition, the new interiors of its flagship Anantara Siam Bangkok’s deluxe and premier guestrooms inject a fresh sense of luxury by infusing a more contemporary esthetic, greeting guests with a subtle Thai character, in keeping with the Anantara brand.

Using elegant regional undertones, typical Asian details were eschewed with the design instead paying homage to Thai palaces that have been constructed with European influences.

Thai silk has been used as wall panels to give a simple and elegant finish, a refined reflection of Thailand, and an antique map of Bangkok in the deluxe rooms provides an interesting conversation piece.

The 307 new 42-square-metre deluxe and premier guestrooms in one king size bed or two double bed configurations can accommodate up to three adults or two adults and a child, and feature an en-suite marble bathroom with a deep soaking tub and separate glass enclosed shower.

Four room categories are available: Deluxe Room; deluxe view room; premier room; and premier view room.  The view category rooms expansive windows reveal the hotel’s tropical gardens; swimming pool; or the immaculate private golf course of the Royal Bangkok Sports Club in the heart of one of the world’s most enigmatic capital cities.

Ideal for business travellers, some of the deluxe and premier guestrooms are located on the hotel’s exclusive Kasara Floor where, at a daily fee, guests are afforded access to the Kasara Executive Lounge with all-day dining; dedicated Concierge and business services; and private meeting facilities.

The addition of a complimentary Handy smartphone in every room allows guests to keep in touch with family and friends with unlimited international calls and texts to 25 countries, and 4G and preloaded popular apps to explore Bangkok with ease.

The refurbishment of its Deluxe and Premier guestrooms completes a 470 THB million project that also saw the upgrade of Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel’s suites and public spaces.

The Goddess Retreat at Anantara Layan Phuket

ANANTARA LAYAN PHUKET RESORT is offering a unique wellness retreat from now until Oct. 21, 2017 with nutritionist, body coach and the UK’ s Goddess of Wellness, Mel Wells.

Set amidst the lush oasis of northern Phuket, Anantara Layan invites women from around the world to take part in The Goddess Sanctuary, a four-day retreat offering a private haven to help transform themselves and their relationship with food.

The retreat, the first for Mel Wells in Thailand, will encourage emotional, physical and nutritional restoration and relief for women who want to set themselves free of diets and fall in love with their bodies. Mel will use her certification as a Health and Eating Psychology Coach to help women gently transform their mindset and make peace with food.

Carefully selected for its location, Anantara Layan will help to bring to life her positive self-love message, encouraging goddess of every type to celebrate themselves and each other in a safe and luxurious environment.

The Revolution on Tropical Shores. The retreat program has been out together to ensure that Goddesses will get to embrace the peace and harmony of their surroundings.

Be nourished by the team of chefs and relax within the glamourous private spaces. The workshops will be an extension of her best-selling book, The Goddess Revolution, a handbook for women to help them make peace with food, love their bodies and reclaim their lives.

It’s a collection of tools, mindset shifts and lessons, as well as stories from her own journey and those of other women that she has worked with.

One of the most important parts of the transformation is nutrition, so Anantara has worked closely with Mel to offer a dedicated menu of healthy and wholesome dishes and meals throughout the retreat.

In addition to the workshops, retreat goers will be invited to take part in active and indigenous experiences such as traditional Thai Boxing (Muay Thai), paddle boarding on the Andaman sea, exploring bustling local wet markets, learn how to cook flavoursome and healthy Thai dishes, and care for rescued elephants in a nearby sanctuary.

To ensure that the soul is taken care of, there will be complimentary spa treatments, revitalizing yoga sessions and time to relax by the infinity pool, relish in the luxurious surroundings and connect with like-minded goddesses for the ultimate week of holistic nourishment.

Mel says “If you’re sick of your life being controlled by food and your weight, then I want to work with you and Anantara Phuket is the perfect paradise to do just that.

“The retreat is all about self-love and self-worth. And to celebrate the journey, I will be throwing a private Goddess Beach Party at the end of your stay, can’t wait to see you there.”

How New Age are you?

ALL TOO OFTEN, high-speed modern lives lead to fatigue. In a bid to rid ourselves from blocked energies and regain our well-being, we are turning to ancient practices such as Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine.

Less conventional therapies, such as crystal healing, are gaining in popularity, too.

Ancient Egyptians once believed that gems had the power to heal. They even collected them throughout their lifetime to ensure a safe journey to the next realm of existence.

If you’re interested, you can try crystal healing when holidaying at Six Senses resorts with Six Senses’ visiting practitioner Jill Banwell.

Jill is available at Six Senses Spa Koh Hood from Dec. 26, 2017 to Jan. 10, 2018 and at Six Senses Spa Laamu until Aug. 20, and at Six Senses Spa Kunfunadhoo from Oct. 1 to Nov. 15.

In a Crystal & Colour Healing session, Jill places specific gemstones on the seven major energetic centres of your body, known as the chakras. As chakras themselves relate to colours on the visible light spectrum, the most suitable crystals are matched to these colours.

Pink stones, such as Rose Quartz and beautifully patterned Rhodocrosite, are most effective for harmonizing the loving, compassionate and forgiving qualities of the heart chakra. Emerald, Peridot and other green colored crystals are also good for the heart.

Yellow stones, such as Citrine and Amber, correspond with the solar plexus chakra, responsible for our vitality and motivation. The sacral chakra, our emotional and creative center, reacts well to stones with orange colouration, such as Carnelian and Orange Calcite. The base chakra, associated with being grounded in the body, responds to Red Garnet or Smoky Quartz.

At the throat chakra, for communication and self-expression, the energies of light blue stones are effective, such as delicately patterned Blue Lace Agate or sea green Aquamarine.

The third eye chakra at the brow is for clarity of vision and perception. Here, dark blue stones such as gold-flecked Lapis Lazuli or Sodalite work well. Where we connect with our higher self and spiritual guidance, at the crown chakra on the top of the head, purple, clear or white stones are helpful, such as Amethyst or Clear Quartz.

Dusit International to manage new business hotel north of Bangkok

DUSIT INTERNATIONAL has signed a management consultancy agreement with Sanguantas Development Company Limited to operate dusitD2 Chaengwattana, an upscale business hotel in the north of Bangkok near Don Mueang Airport (DMK) and a range of key business, leisure and MICE destinations.

Designed to meet the needs of today’s tech-savvy, hyper-connected travellers, the hotel will comprise 200 guest rooms and suites set over 23 floors, and will feature amongst its facilities a rooftop international restaurant and bar, a rooftop infinity swimming pool, fitness centre, and a large banqueting facility offering panoramic views of Bangkok.

The property will feature a striking cantilevered design featuring tiered gardens. The proposed interior will provide contemporary comfort and convenience enhanced by the latest technology, and all touchpoints will be driven by Dusit’s signature gracious service.

CentralPlaza Chaengwattana, a hub of dining, shopping and entertainment, is only 300 metres away, while other local landmarks include ISB International School, World Medical Center Hospital, and the Government Complex, which houses the Immigration Department and Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

DMK is only 30 minutes away by car, and Impact Arena, Exhibition and Convention Center (IMPACT) can be reached within 15 minutes.

The Pink Line Mass Transit Monorail System is slated to open in the same year as the hotel with a station located nearby. This will link with the city’s BTS Skytrain system to offer convenient access to all of Bangkok’s key attractions.

“With completion of the new infrastructure set to coincide with the opening of the hotel, the timing for the project could not be better,” said Dusit International’s Group CEO Suphajee Suthumpun.

“And we will, indeed, have a very exciting product on offer when the doors officially open in 2020. From colourful, inspiring décor, to gracious service inspired by authentic Thai values, the new hotel will provide a comfortable, stylish and convenient option for leisure and business travellers alike, and should prove especially attractive for exhibitors at the nearby convention centre.

“The hotel will also be an ideal venue for meetings in its own right, with state-of-the–art facilities allowing us to cater for a wide range of events. We also hope to leverage our close proximity to the Government Complex by hosting many high level functions at the hotel.”

“Dusit International’s rich hospitality experience speaks for itself and we are delighted to partner with the company for this special project, which really raises the bar for business hotels in the area”, said Apichart Asavarojpanich, CEO of Sanguantas Development.

Any development we become involved in must have the best in design, facilities, and services, including a comprehensive training program for its employees, and Dusit offers all this and more. We are confident the hotel will be a resounding success under Dusit’s management.”

Dusit International currently operates 29 properties in key destinations around the globe. A further 51 projects are already confirmed to open internationally within the next three years.

The company currently operates two hotels in Bangkok – Dusit Thani Bangkok and DusitPrincess Srinakarin Bangkok.
