One of the top trends for hotels is the whole
fitness/wellness angle, the other is the selling of hotel-branded items. The Peninsula Hotels
have announced 'Peninsula Wellness' a sweeping
lifestyle program that combines both of these trends. The Wellness plan will center on the Peninsula spas which will
combine Eastern and Western wellness and relaxation philosophies. The hotels will also offer “Naturally
Peninsula” light and healthy cuisine options at all Peninsula dining establishments. The hotels will use organic
produce from local farms for the new range of lighter fare and will provide options for people on alternative diets.
Peninsula will also publish a “Naturally Peninsula” cookbook and offer a range of organic teas, coffees and
chocolates which will be available for purchase in the hotel boutiques. They will also offer “Simply
Peninsula” toiletries and other products (including natural beeswax candles) which use essential oils and
fragrances such as geranium, ginger lily and nutmeg. There are also CDs of relaxing Chinese and Thai music that will be
played at the spas and, of course, are also available for purchase.
