Turnberry Isle Resort & Club and IWellness have formed a partnership to deliver a traditional spa experience into the hotel room. As an extension of the resort spa, the Suite Serenity concept will provide the sanctuary of a spa and its healing components within the comfort and privacy of a luxury guestroom.
It would seem that exhausting flights, recycled air, chlorinated water and incessant noise are what most travellers have come to expect when they travel.
Turnberry Isle Resort & Club and iWellness, have partnered to deliver a refreshing alternative to the weary guest in the shape of Suite Serenity.
“Although many travellers follow a significant wellness regimen, it remains exceedingly difficult to follow a healthy living pattern when on the road,” said Jaye English, CEO of iWellness. “With this concept, we are redefining the travel experience by offering an integrated health and wellness experience in the comfort of a guest room. Now guests can arrive, rejuvenate and get ready for a productive next day.”
Depending on the time of day, Suite Serenity will be lightly scented with one of four aromatherapeutic blends; energy, relaxation, jet lag and balance. The room itself will feature a massage chair combined with a Shiatsu massage system for relaxation and stress relief; an iWellness Relaxation Zone, with sound system playing iWellness Music; MetaTreks - Next Generation Fitness Shoes, a weighted shoe with patented design exclusive to iWellness; Tempur-pedic mattress and pillows; eye masks and slippers; travel accessories; ergonomic office chairs; iWellness Water Filtration Systems; Air Filtration/Oxygen Room systems; Luxurious Robes and Towel Sets; a mix of custom pharmaceutical grade nutraceuticals designed to bolster the traveller`s immune system; Iromas, aromatherapy essential oils and essential oil blended chocolates, also exclusive to iWellness, and a collection of healthy teas.
“Unlike other hotels or resorts that bring limited and often uncoordinated elements of the spa into guest rooms, Suite Serenity will allow guests to experience complete health spa fundamentals integrated into their suite,” said Jens Grafe, Turnberry Isle Resort & Club`s general manager. “The iWellness Suite is an innovative concept room that will be a transformational place for Turnberry Isle guests to heal and rejuvenate after a long trip.”
For those traveling from afar, Turnberry Isle Resort & Club will send a unique iWellness Jet Lag Management Kit, which contains instructions, immune support supplements, functional body and mind care products along with other iWellness items designed to fight the effects of a long journey and reduce the recovery time of the guest upon arrival.
