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.

Coming Up In The September Online Hotel Business Review

Hotel Group Meetings: Blue Skies Ahead
After a decade of sacrifice and struggle, it seems that hotels and meeting planners have every reason to be optimistic about the group meeting business going forward. By every industry benchmark and measure, 2017 is shaping up to be a record year, which means more meetings in more locations for more attendees. And though no one in the industry is complaining about this rosy outlook, the strong demand is increasing competition among meeting planners across the board – for the most desirable locations, for the best hotels, for the most creative experiences, for the most talented chefs, and for the best technology available. Because of this robust demand, hotels are in the driver’s seat and they are flexing their collective muscles. Even though over 100,000 new rooms were added last year, hotel rates are expected to rise by a minimum of 4.0%, and they are also charging fees on amenities that were often gratis in the past. In addition, hotels are offering shorter lead times on booking commitments, forcing planners to sign contracts earlier than in past years. Planners are having to work more quickly and to commit farther in advance to secure key properties. Planners are also having to meet increased attendee expectations. They no longer are content with a trade show and a few dinners; they want an experience. Planners need to find ways to create a meaningful experience to ensure that attendees walk away with an impactful memory. This kind of experiential learning can generate a deeper emotional connection, which can ultimately result in increased brand recognition, client retention, and incremental sales. The September Hotel Business Review will examine issues relevant to group business and will report on what some hotels are doing to promote this sector of their operations.
