Stay Healthy With Six Senses

BANGKOK, TH. February 23, 2017 – Eat with Six Senses, a group-wide menu revamp that features low-sugar and low-sodium items, gluten-, soy- and hormone-free dining options, is rolling out this year at all Six Senses resorts and spas. In addition to serving seasonal and sustainable food items, 90 to 100 percent of menu items will be organic. Efforts also include the reduction of lectins found in grains, beans and nightshades which can cause chronic inflammation, digestive problems and degenerative conditions.

As part of the nutritional revamp, Six Senses is introducing a new menu of detoxifying smoothies and juices that incorporate key nutrients including a variety of vegetables, herbs, spices and fruit that contain low amounts of fructose to keep guest’s health in balance during their stay. In addition, the drinks provide a nutritionally rich boost of concentrated micronutrients acting as a delicious daily supplement.

Guests can select to participate in one of the Six Senses Integrated Wellness programs: Cleanse & Detox; Sleep & Resilience; Trim & Fit and 100% Full Potential, where they are provided with an accompanying selection of smoothies and juices that best suits their wellness regime. Some examples of the specialty designed smoothies and juices include:

· Green Senses- A juice designed for guests on the Cleanse & Detox program, packed with ingredients to promote and support detoxification such as kale, broccoli, fennel and parsley which are filled with antioxidants; cilantro which binds heavy metals; ginger which offers anti-inflammatory properties and pineapple which is rich in vitamin C as well as the enzyme bromelain.

· Coco Nap- A smoothie developed to assist with sleep for guests participating in the Sleep & Resilience Integrated Wellness program. The velvety and refreshing smoothie contains young coconut, papaya, lemon balm and lime.

· The Hulk- A smoothie designed for guests participating in the Trim & Fit Wellness Program. This smoothie aids post workout recovery and muscle growth. The creaminess of macadamia nuts together with spinach and the richness of exotic spices make this a delicious green smoothie with a hint of Brazil nuts. This smoothie also works very well with protein powder.

Dr. Steven Gundry of the Center for Restorative Medicine and The International Heart and Lung Institute serves on the Six Senses Wellness Board and has been collaborating with Six Senses in reviewing all menus. Eat with Six Senses is the first project Dr. Gundry worked on in tandem with Nutrition Consultant Patrick Wahlberg and Sophie Bohnstedt of Sophie’s Raw in Stockholm.

Architecture & Design: Authentic, Interactive and Immersive
If there is one dominant trend in the field of hotel architecture and design, it’s that travelers are demanding authentic, immersive and interactive experiences. This is especially true for Millennials but Baby Boomers are seeking out meaningful experiences as well. As a result, the development of immersive travel experiences - winery resorts, culinary resorts, resorts geared toward specific sports enthusiasts - will continue to expand. Another kind of immersive experience is an urban resort – one that provides all the elements you'd expect in a luxury resort, but urbanized. The urban resort hotel is designed as a staging area where the city itself provides all the amenities, and the hotel functions as a kind of sophisticated concierge service. Another trend is a re-thinking of the hotel lobby, which has evolved into an active social hub with flexible spaces for work and play, featuring cafe?s, bars, libraries, computer stations, game rooms, and more. The goal is to make this area as interactive as possible and to bring people together, making the space less of a traditional hotel lobby and more of a contemporary gathering place. This emphasis on the lobby has also had an associated effect on the size of hotel rooms – they are getting smaller. Since most activities are designed to take place in the lobby, there is less time spent in rooms which justifies their smaller design. Finally, the wellness and ecology movements are also having a major impact on design. The industry is actively adopting standards so that new structures are not only environmentally sustainable, but also promote optimum health and well- being for the travelers who will inhabit them. These are a few of the current trends in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
