A journey of well-being
Innovative boutique resort operator AHMS – The Collection has again revealed its pioneering spirit with the creation of Ayurah Wellness Centre, a new twist on the essential Asian spa experience as part of the rebirth of Aleenta Phuket-Phang Nga.
Setting a high-water mark for what a ‘new spa’ should be, Ayurah offers a cutting-edge range of treatments and a philosophy of ‘wellness that works’, utilising the best of modern medical wisdom and time-honoured traditional Thai treatments and world class beauty practices utilised by Hollywood high-flyers.
AHMS owner and managing director Anchalika Kijkanakorn, who is also chairman of the Board for Small Luxury Hotels of the World, said: “This is a concept very much of its time. Guests are now well versed on wellness and are looking for a more medical approach, integrating treatments into their holidays so they will leave feeling and looking great. They want a spa that delivers on its promises, that provides treatments which work, and that’s Ayurah.”
“Ayurah is also very much a lifestyle choice. We are talking about treatments where guests come three to four times a year, to ‘top up’ on making sure they are looking and feeling their very best. This can include full maintenance plans where guests will be able to come once or twice a month keeping them feeling beautiful and rejuvenated.”
Ayurah Wellness Centre will offer treatments including hydrotherapy and chromotherapy baths, nail and foot reflexology, oxygen and music therapy, a Vichy shower, a beauty lounge, a tranquil relaxation lounge and six treatment rooms for couples and singles. It further offers jet lag recovery, executive stress relief, body sentimentality treatment, a facial elixir treatment, a children’s spa introductory programme and a deluxe newlyweds spa experience.
The Edge restaurant is also integrated into the 360 lifestyle offering, with specially tailored culinary options – taking into consideration dietary concerns on the overall wellness offering – for guests to naturally detox their bodies while on holiday.
In addition, Ayurah Wellness Centre will feature a range of uncompromising premium products that guests will be able to use once they leave resort and continue treatments at home. These will be unveiled in August this year.
