Capella Bangkok launches Auriga Wellness ‘Sanctuary within a Sanctuary’

Capella Bangkok, an urban resort on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, has launched a new level of wellness with the opening of Auriga Wellness, a world-class spa spearheaded by the wellness specialists of GOCO Hospitality.

The spa immerses guests in a natural sanctuary of tranquillity, blending contemporary wellness techniques with ancient Asian wisdom. Nestled in the resort’s lush landscaped gardens, this 1,074- square metre facility features seven treatment rooms (including two spa suites), a thermal bathing area, a naturally lit tea lounge with an outdoor spa garden and a well-equipped fitness centre.

Drawing upon age-old therapies and medicinal herbs and spices—many growing organically in the local area—Auriga Wellness will provide a truly unique spa experience.

The spa program, conceptualized by GOCO Hospitality, balances the heritage of the various communities along Charoenkrung Road with treatments embracing elements of traditional Chinese medicine, Indian healing rituals and time-honoured Thai techniques (such as Tok Sen, a hammer massage introduced to Bangkok by settlers from Chiang Mai).

To offer guests the best in modern healing beauty treatments, Auriga Wellness also worked with acclaimed luxury skincare brand ‘J1JSKIN’ to design a range of signature facial and body therapies, including dedicated treatments for gentlemen and the award-winning non-surgical lift facial.

An extensive menu of massages, body scrubs, wraps, facials and cleansing rituals will leave guests feeling fully restored, refreshed and rejuvenated. A series of active classes and lifestyle sessions, such as yoga, tai chi, personal training, TRX workouts and Muay Thai, will invigorate the mind and body.

“Capella Bangkok is set to become one of the most iconic wellness destinations in Bangkok thanks to its never-before-seen collection of locally inspired spa treatments,” says Ingo Schweder, founder and CEO of GOCO Hospitality. “Auriga Wellness will take guests on genuine journeys that explore the unique healing traditions inspired by the communities of Charoenkrung Road. This area is famed for its expertise in herbal medicines and ancient massage techniques, and I can’t wait to see these rituals come to life at Capella Bangkok.”

“Auriga Wellness is a ‘sanctuary within a sanctuary’ — a self-enclosed full-service spa in the heart of our riverside resort,” says John Blanco, General Manager of Capella Bangkok. “Surrounded by tropical gardens, this is a cocoon where guests and local residents can escape from the outside world and unwind in a deedly peaceful ambience. GOCO HosDitality has created great  spa experiences for CaDella IO Sanya, Bali and the Maldives, and I am delighted to introduce their unique concept to Capella Bangkok,”

The sense of well-being at Capella Bangkok does not end at Auriga Wellness; spa-inspired services permeate throughout this innovative urban resort, from in-room wellness programmes and yoga mats to healthy dÏning options, a glistening riverside pool, and highly engaging experiences curated by a team of ‘CaDella Culturists, who tap into the rich history of this storied neighbourhood.

Auriga Wellness is open daily from 1O a.m. to 10 p.m.. For more information and reservations, email or call 065 998 4648. To learn more about Capella Bangkok, visit www.caoeIIahoteIs.com/banqkok or call 02 098 3888.

Spicing up your love life at Amari

AMARI HAS A COLLECTION OF smart and sexy tips that are great for your relationship, allowing you to socially distance yourself from the world and give 100% attention to your favourite person.

Start with an in-room dining experience by choosing a room, where a dinner for two is given a backdrop of breath-taking views.

In the morning, skip the buffet line and ask for breakfast to be served to your room. Plus, if you’re looking to do an Instagrammable breakfast spread shot, this is the perfect opportunity for all the IG partners out there to earn some brownie points.

Alternatively, ask for a picnic basket packed with sweet and savoury goodies for an outdoor lunch on the beach. Romantic, intimate, and another picture perfect moment to share as a “latergram”.

Dining Al Fresco… with an Elegant Twist: Set a date with your partner for something stylish if you find yourself missing those ‘special occasion’ outings. An afternoon tea date for two by the pool takes you away from the stuffy indoors, offering a fresh ocean breeze and warm sunshine if that’s your cup of tea.

If you prefer stargazing on the beach, you can set up a romantic sunset dining experience with spectacular ocean views, a private set menu meal that is only elevated by the dreamy atmosphere. Planning a proposal? This is the moment you’ve been waiting for all your life, hearing those two simple words: “I do”.

Massage Each Other’s Worries Away: Research shows that there are benefits to couples giving each other massages. It also strengthens emotional bonds in addition to providing physical relief from tension. Make time to give each other a relaxing massage, or opt for a couples massage together.

Ask your massage therapist for oil recommendations that’ll create the ultimate experience for you, whether you’re looking to unwind, to reinvigorate, or simply get lost in the rhythm together.

For the ultimate indulgence, book a couple’s massage at Amari Phuket Breeze Spa and get lost in the rhythm together, or dim the lights and set up a romantic bath with your other half at Amari Hua Hin’s One Bedroom Suites.

No Need to Wait – You Can Create Your Own Special Moments: Surprise your partner at home with personalized decorations, order in flowers or light up some candles to set the mood. If you’re planning a staycation, ask the hotel for a special set-up: Balloons and champagne are great ways to celebrate an anniversary, birthday – or the every day.

Learn (or Re-Learn) a New Hobby Together: Whether you’re looking to level up your culinary prowess by taking a cooking class together, or hoping to burn off your romantic dinner with a challenging new workout routine, plan something special and fun that the two of you can share.

Not sure what you’d like to try? Paddleboarding, painting classes, and photography are some of the activities you can start exploring today.

You can create romance in your lives, regardless of whether you are staying home or treating yourself to a private hotel stay. If you choose to travel, be responsible. Wear your face masks in public areas, observe social distancing and keep your hands clean. Also check that the hotel you visit is committed to offering a safe and healthy environment through enhanced measures, such as ONYX Clean, which is offered by all Amari hotels. Remember: Travel remains possible as long as you travel safely, mindfully and positively.

Visit Amari Hua Hin for a lovely afternoon tea set by the poolside, or enjoy a soothing couples massage at Amari Phuket’s Breeze Spa, where the open air plan means you can fully take in the lullaby of the ocean as your tensions melt away.

 Book One Bedroom Suite Pool View at Amari Hua Hin with “Just the Two of Us” package for a three-course candlelit dinner at Shoreline Beach Club, complimentary wine and romantic room setup; complimentary in-room breakfast and guaranteed late check-out, nightly rates starting at 5,499 THB.

Initiated in 2012, and led by the group’s Vice President of Sustainability Jeff Smith, individual properties monitor and measure their environmental efforts. All of the group’s hotels and resorts contribute to Cornell University’s Hotel Sustainability Benchmarking program, which compares their performance against a global dataset of their peers.

In 2019, Six Senses sustainability data reveals that as a group:

Over the past 16 years, Six Senses has been bottling its own still and sparkling drinking water. By establishing on-site filtration and bottling facilities, each resort eliminates the transportation impacts and use of plastic water bottles. Six Senses drinking water has proved a taste-test winner with guests also.

Each Six Senses resort and hotel features and 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.

For everyone in the company that Six Senses can demonstrate its commitment to Sustainability Funds

Sustainability Funds are managed at each Six Senses property with sales added directly from house-bottled water and popular stuffed animal mascots that reflect each location. Sponsored projects in 2019 totaled US$ 626,641.

This means:

1,084,680 people gained access to improved medical care

105,099 people gained access to clean drinking water and sanitation

19,974 kilograms of trash was collected voluntarily by our Hosts – enough to fill enough to fill 3 garbage trucks!

1,719 hours of teaching was directly conducted or supported by us

We provided access to education and skill training to 14,057 students

We engaged with 3,079 people to raise awareness and educate about sustainable tourism

10,334 endangered sea turtles hatched on our beaches

Six Senses Yao Noi Awarded HICAP 2020 Sustainable Hotel Awards

SIX SENSES YAO NOI HAS  been awarded the HICAP 2020 Sustainable Hotel Awards in the Positive Community Impact (Property) category for its Clean Water Project.

Since its inception in 2014, the program has improved the lives of 102,976 community members through its activation in more than 32 locations to provide access to clean drinking water.

Initially launched in Cambodia, the Clean Water Project later expanded locally to Thailand in 2016 through partnerships with NGOs like Geo Life, Imagine Thailand and local community groups. The program has also continued to focus its efforts on removing the need for importing plastic water bottles onto Koh Yao Noi island.

At present, there are 15 filtration and dispensing units installed in schools, hospitals, community halls and places of worship on the island.

Water consumption remains a concern despite high annual rainfall as shortages take place during the dry season.

At Six Senses Yao Noi, the water used within the resort and host compound comes from the resort’s reservoir, making it self-sufficient. Drinking water is filtered and bottled in reusable glass bottles onsite, eliminating imports of drinking water and up to 101,000 plastic water bottles per year by the resort directly.

“We’re honoured to be recognized by HICAP for this award. Six Senses Yao Noi has been producing drinking water on-site since the resort opened 13 years ago, mainly to be more environmentally conscious and to create public awareness of “food-miles”.

The provision of drinking water filtration is strategically aligned with brand-wide policy that all Six Senses drinking water must be bottled in refillable glass bottles,” said General Manager Graham Grant.

By investing in in-house expertise in water filtration, the resort is able to send its engineering team for equipment installation at designated Clean Water Project locations, and at the same time build stronger bonds with the community.

While Six Senses Yao Noi provides its own drinking water, the Clean Water Project is also part of a larger strategy to reduce dependence on disposable plastic bottles and raise awareness in the local communities. This includes talking to local community leaders about the importance of adopting these systems for the benefit of all. Reusable water bottles are also distributed amongst the community.

Community engagement activities have also extended to a new initiative, Trash Hero Koh Yao Noi, the local island chapter of Trash Hero Global. This brings the local community together for weekly beach clean ups, collecting 12.6 tons of waste in 2019.

The importance of eliminating single-use plastics can be seen first hand through the amount of trash collected each week.

“We encourage people to refill their reusable water bottles at no cost, instead of purchasing bottled water from stores. This leads to a significant decrease in the number of single-use plastic entering the island, as well the associated cost. In line with this purpose, we have to date supplied 1,200 reusable water bottles to children on the island,” said Grant.

Aside from the Clean Water Project, Six Senses Yao Noi has also invested in medical facilities, education, permaculture and environmental projects, including mangroves and Hornbill conservation efforts.
