Dusit Thani's spa brand Devarana Spa is expanding to
Europe, with a spa scheduled to open at the new ultra luxury hotel Il
Salviatino in Florence this June.
The spa’s European
expansion is through a joint venture with international development and
management company MPg, which specializes in small luxury hotels.
Following a 15 million Euro restoration, its latest property
Il Salviatino has been developed by MPg founder Marcello Pigozzo and
renowned Italian architect Luciano Colombo, from an elegant 15th century
palazzo on the hillside of Fiesole on the outskirts of Florence to a
luxury villa that still maintains a sense of the history and culture of
18th-19th century Italy.
The Devarana Spa at Il
Salviatino occupies 600 square meters with five well equipped treatment
rooms and suites, plus 14 Devarana Deluxe rooms specially designed to
bring the personalized luxury and comfort of spa services to the privacy
of hotel rooms.
It incorporates contemporary Thai décor
reflecting its ‘garden in heaven’ concept derived from the ancient Thai
literature ‘Tribhumphraruang’ – blending the artistic and classic charms
of this historic architectural masterpiece to create a cultural and
sensory journey for spa lovers.
The spa draws on
authentic Thai healing therapies and western disciplines to offer a host
of “East meets West” treatments.
It is complemented by
world-class products, fresh Thai herbs and indigenous ingredients of the
area to create an inspiring range of locally-influenced treatments.
A comprehensive range of massages, skin beautifying
treatments and spa packages include the unique ‘Harmony of Tad Si’, an
ancient Thai therapy based on Buddhist teachings, and ‘Tuscany Journey
Reviver’, designed for relaxing and unwinding after a day’s sightseeing.
“We are delighted to be selected as MPg’s partner to manage
the first Devarana Spa in Florence,” said Wipawadee Sirimongkolkasem,
Devarana Spa’s Managing Director. “Devarana has
established an exceptional reputation within Thailand for operating our
deluxe spa and Italy is a very welcome addition to our highly selective
destination portfolio, which currently includes five outlets in Thailand
and the Philippines.”
