Westin Hotels & Resorts launches In-Room Spa Program

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Wednesday, 16 January  2008

Westin Hotels & Resorts has launched a new in-room spa program that aims to bring the personalized luxury and comfort of a full-service spa to the privacy of the hotel room. The in-room spa program includes a luxurious yet portable spa bed and a spa basket filled with sensory items to be enjoyed before, during and after the massage.

The specially designed in-room spa bed was inspired by the all-white ten layer Westin Heavenly Bed. Designed to provide the ultimate in-room spa experience, the luxurious all-white spa bed is 31 inches wide - larger than typical portable massage tables - and is outfitted with heated AeroCel padding topped by plush double fleecing and Westin's signature Heavenly Bed linens. A fully padded face cradle completes the feeling of full-body comfort. Just below the face rest, Westin installed a small shelf, designed to hold a bowl of flowers and soothing aromatherapy oil.

The Westin in-room spa experience is customized from start to finish-beginning with booking, when a staff member collects information about the guest's history and preferences. Approximately 40 minutes before the massage appointment, Westin staff delivers a spa basket holding water, a flower, a CD containing customized relaxation music, a healthful treat such as dark chocolate and a letter explaining what to expect from the treatment along with tips for ultimate relaxation and enjoyment. The basket also contains a selection of plant-based aromatherapy oils and room sprays, allowing the guest to choose a scent for the treatment.

"We designed our new in-room spa experience to appeal to the growing segment of travelers who expect uncompromised luxury, but may prefer the comfort and privacy of their room over a communal spa," said Sue Brush, senior vice president of Westin Hotels & Resorts. "This program is also ideal for business travelers, who often have a small window of time for relaxation and pampering."

"Historically, hotels offering in-room massage have used equipment and methods that were designed for function, not comfort," added Jeremy McCarthy, director of spa development, operations and marketing for Starwood Hotels & Resorts. "The new Westin initiative brings the spa experience to the guest room by incorporating all five senses."

Westin's in-room spa experience is currently available at 64 properties and continues to be rolled out worldwide. In Asia Pacific, In-Room Spa service is available at Westins in Beijing, Shanghai, Sydney, Melbourne, Fiji, Langkawi, Bangkok, Guam, Bali and Auckland.
