The Anam Spa Introduces Vietnamese Zodiac Spa Journeys

One of Vietnam’s most acclaimed resorts is ushering in 2020 in a state of zen, launching restorative spa packages tailored to guests’ birth years, zodiac signs and zodiac elements.

Inspired by the Vietnamese zodiac elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water, the Anam’s new spa therapy begins with a consultation with the resort’s ‘elements’ spa specialist, who assesses the guest’s birth year to determine his or her zodiac sign and zodiac element.

The specialist then crafts a customized treatment plan including reinvigorating treatments designed to align mind, body and soul.

“It’s all in the stars and in the elements at our spa, as we begin the year of the rat with a focus on our spa guests’ birth years,” said the resort’s founder Pham Van Hien. “This is how to really turn up the heat on an individual spa journey.”

Examples of bespoke packages, available to book now, include:

Wood-horse combination:

Those born in 1954 and 2014 are of the horse zodiac sign and wood zodiac element. Although horse signs are generally optimistic, these individuals are prone to high levels of stress from work demands.

A wood-horse spa package offers a bamboo massage, using real bamboo to roll and knead bodily tissue, helping to alleviate mind tension and soothe muscle aches and pains. A cleansing coffee scrub, and rosemary-essential oil and aloe vera tea evoke a sense of relaxation.

Earth-tiger combination:

Those born in 1938 and 1998 are of the tiger zodiac sign and earth zodiac element. Lovers of sports and physical activity, tiger signs are mentally and physically strong, meaning it is important that they stay focused and refreshed to continue to perform at their optimum level and avoid feeling overworked.

An earth-tiger spa package reconnects guests with their inner spirit with a full detox and deep cleansing mineral mud wrap. A refreshing lemongrass essential oil and chrysanthemum tea results in guests feeling grounded and ready to hit the ground running, after leaving the treatment room.

Water-snake combination:

Those born in 1953 and 2013 are of the snake zodiac sign and water zodiac element. Snakes tend to thrive in a peaceful environment and thus find it difficult to be productive when faced with a heavy workload or stressful situation.

A snake-water spa package targets symptoms of stress, with a relaxing back massage and nourishing facial treatment helping to relieve tight muscles and eradicate blockages. A lavender essential oil and artichoke tea instills a sense of inner peace and calm.

To complement the spa treatments, the resort offers yoga and meditation sessions with the resort’s resident yogi, Umesh.

The Anam affords three swimming pools, four restaurants, three bars and a 300-metre stretch of private beachfront set on what is often cited as Vietnam’s best beach.

Nightly rates at The Anam start from $180 for a Balcony Garden View Room. For more information or to make a reservation visit www.theanam.com, call +(84) 2583 989 499 or email info@theanam.com.

The Vietnamese Zodiac spa packages are offered from The Anam until June 2020. Treatments range from 110 minutes to 130 minutes and are priced at 3,000,000 VND per person per treatment.

 

Dusit International continues expansion in Vietnam with the signing of Dusit Tu Hoa Palace, Hanoi

Upscale hotel is slated to open in Q4 2023 on the northern shores of West Lake in the city’s high-end Tay Ho district.

Dusit International, one of Thailand’s leading hotel and property development companies, has signed a long-term agreement with Vietnamese real estate developers General Technology Joint Stock Company to develop and operate Dusit Tu Hoa Palace, Hanoi, in the city’s affluent Tay Ho District, at the northern end of the city’s largest freshwater lake, West Lake.

Comprising 207 well-appointed guest rooms, the upscale property will put guests at the heart of a vibrant lakeside community renowned for its international restaurants, trendy cafes, chic nightlife venues, and fascinating lakeside temples. Noi Bai International Airport is only 30 minutes away by car, while Hanoi’s Old Quarter, the city’s business hub and main tourist destination, can be reached in just 15 minutes.

In line with Dusit’s mission to uniquely deliver Thai-inspired gracious hospitality to the world, the hotel will feature a distinctive blend of Thai and Vietnamese design elements to offer high levels of comfort and convenience for business and leisure travellers alike. Hotel facilities will include an all-day dining restaurant, a rooftop bar, meeting rooms, and a swimming pool. Many of the guest rooms will offer views of the lake and its surrounds.

Guests will also enjoy easy access to local attractions such as Vietnam’s oldest temple, Tran Quoc Pagoda, which was built in the 6th century; and Quan Thanh Temple, which is renowned for its detailed wood carvings.

“We are delighted to partner with General Technology Joint Stock Company to bring our unique brand of Thai inspired, gracious hospitality to Vietnam’s vibrant capital for the first time,” said Mr Lim Boon Kwee, Chief Operating Officer, Dusit International. “As a destination, Hanoi keeps going from strength to strength. Last year the city welcomed more than 6 million foreign visitors in the first 11 months – up 12% year-on-year. The country’s strong GDP growth rate is also driving a rapidly growing segment of high-spending domestic tourists. With this in mind, now is the perfect time to expand our operations in Vietnam’s capital city and strengthen our brand for further growth in Vietnam.”

Mr Le Minh Thanh, Chairman of the Board of Management, General Technology Joint Stock Company, said, “Dusit’s ability to translate its Thai heritage and industry expertise into impressive localized experiences is fully evident at its international properties, including its first hotel in Vietnam, Dusit Princess Moonrise Beach Resort Phu Quoc, which opened in 2018. We now look forward to working with Dusit to offer a distinctive hotel experience in Hanoi that delights guests and customers, and which delivers long-term, sustainable value for all stakeholders.”

Dusit International’s property portfolio now comprises 307 properties operating under six brands across 15 countries. The company has also recently diversified into food business, with strategic investments designed to mitigate risk, expand its customer base, and generate revenue from adjacent lines of commerce.

Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River

Designed by award-winning architectural and interior design legend Jean-Michel Gathy, Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River is now accepting reservations for arrivals beginning early 2020. Jean-Michel Gathy, the mastermind behind the new spectacular riverfront hotel in the capital of Thailand, reveals his definitive interpretation to the interior and landscape design of the hotel – the dominance of water features blending successive indoor and outdoor spaces and integrating elegant touches of Thai influence throughout the design delivery.

Occupying 200 metres of pristine river frontage, exceptional design immerses focus into the natural riverfront landscape. Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River provides a unique environment for a superlative sensory guest experience within the environs of a luxury urban resort.  The hotel will also introduce modern meeting and function spaces, including a riverfront Grand Ballroom with expansive outdoor terrace; and world-class entertainment offerings along the hotel’s waterfront promenade featuring an array of restaurants and bars.

 

“The core challenge that drew me to this extraordinary project was the chance to craft the ultimate urban resort experience and at the same time to create an incomparable city hotel that would not only complement but also enhance its unique, expansive riverside location” comments Jean-Michel Gathy, founder and principle designer at the multiple-award winning firm Dennison.

 

Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River’s 299 guest rooms including suites with garden terraces provide a warm and sophisticated welcome with their contemporary interiors and hand-selected furnishings, which combine with abundant natural light to provide a genuine sense of place along Bangkok’s riverfront.

 

The two-story Presidential Suite is the most lavish suite with three light-filled bedrooms, uninterrupted river views and ceilings that soar to twice the regular height. A rooftop terrace overlooks panoramic river views, a stunning backdrop for hosting events or simply relaxing in the private pool.

Encapsulating the essence of riverside experience

The Chao Phraya River embodies the spirit of Bangkok’s life on its banks and waters reflecting the colorful and dynamic nature of the intriguing city. Inspired by the majestic river, Jean-Michel Gathy infuses the energy, flow and movement into the design of the hotel to reflect the natural splendor of the location. Expressing the inherent fluidity of the water demanded far more than interior design touches in the lush and abundant outdoor landscapes.

 

Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River’s cascading design and open spaces afford an array of views. Its riverside setting seamlessly unifies the natural beauty of Thailand with both the historic and modern aspects of the city of Bangkok for an urban resort vibe. High ceilings and glass walls provide breathing space, while pools and flowing water echo the constant movement of the Chao Phraya River.

 

Staying in tune with the urban resort concept, the peaceful hotel ambiance invites guests to feel instantly relaxed and at home. The hotel grounds are uniquely arranged around a series of cascading green courtyards, each one with its own distinctive but interconnected and related mood and points of interest. A combination of structural elements, trees, fountains, reflective ponds and materials are used to achieve subtle distinctions between them. A distinctive example can be seen at The Lounge where reeds are introduced into the design to create a soothing natural statement.

A seamless transition

Paying homage to the site’s culturally rich and vibrant Chao Phraya River, Jean-Michel Gathy seamlessly blends indoor and outdoor spaces, converging landscape together with interior design. Working closely with the architects and making the absolute best of the hotel’s generous proportions, Jean-Michel Gathy has enriched the stunning variety of volumes in the architectural design, while infusing a rare sense of seamless transitions between each of the hotel’s distinctive spaces.

 

Jean-Michel Gathy also adds: “In such a magnificent setting, transitions are paramount. Dramatic ceiling alignments, open arches, and the use of parallel exquisite materials within and outside the buildings all contribute to a defining sense of unity amid variety. The overall effect is supremely engaging yet also restful.”

 

Classy with a hint of Thai

“Bangkok is a truly engaging and incredible city that inspires me with its energy and rich heritage.” shares Jean-Michel Gathy who has also drawn on the inherent contrasts of locality, bringing a subtle approach to Thai influences which he describes as “Classy with a hint of Thai”. Jean-Michel Gathy integrates elegant touches of Thai influence into everything from the elevator frames, to fabrics and other intricacies.

 

Gentle tones and silk are selected and used for the interior to inspire a feeling of refined lightness and as a contemporary expression point and more importantly to inspire a feeling of Thai culture and values. When guests enter the tranquil grounds from Chareoenkrung Road, a nature-inspired welcome awaits before the atmosphere becomes grander in the interconnected courtyards.

 

A defining art collection by Jean-Michel Gathy

Thailand’s natural beauty and the city’s urbane charms come together in every aspect of the interiors, punctuated by a defining art collection curated by Jean-Michel Gathy himself. Celebrating the country’s legendary craftsmanship and artistry, a dedicated Art Space in the hotel showcases the talents of contemporary Thai artists along with individually commissioned art installations throughout public and private spaces, both indoors and outdoors.

 

Jean-Michel Gathy has thoughtfully imbued along the way, the luxury DNA of the legendary Four Seasons brand. Quality, sophistication and understated elegance prevail, all essential characteristics that perfectly encapsulate the prestige thoughtfully encapsulated at Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River.

As its name suggests, 27 Top House is located on the 27th floor atop the CHAO building to inspire creativity and host unique experiences, suitable for art exhibitions, fashion shows, immersive performances and corporate events.

Unintentionally left raw with undefined elements on its concrete interior and metal pillars, 27 Top House exudes the primitive nature of the interior design of the modernised geometric building. The1,600 square metre L-shaped space over two floors includes a large event space and smaller private room offering a 360 degree panorama and a different perspective of Beijing.Soaring ceilings of a maximum height of 7 metres promotes open space and elevated angles within the event space, while the 4K high definition arc screen set among the 4 built-in wall screens at 4.6m height can accommodate a range of audio-visual needs.

Rosewood Bangkok

The recent opening of Rosewood Bangkok with interior design undertaken by Celia Chu of Celia Chu Design & Associates (CCDA) introduces a timeless design inspiration which draws upon aspects of Thailand’s rich culture while celebrating the cutting-edge creativity and contemporary design ethos of the dynamic capital city.

Located in the prime business and retail district of Ploenchit, Rosewood Bangkok reflects a remarkable contemporary architectural design. The striking 30-story architectural marvel is inspired by wai, the famous Thai gesture of greeting, as a modern silhouette of Thai spirit. Celia Chu has led this successful design interpretation of Rosewood Bangkok for the interiors with every small detail considered to deliver the most impactful translation of the overall hotel design.

“When designing the concept, we become heavily involved with the culture, and all decisions have to come from the heart. To me, it’s important to first understand what kind of a story you want to tell and how you want the guests to feel.” Celia comments.

Designed to celebrate Rosewood’s hallmark A Sense of Place® philosophy and display the harmonious coexistence of the contemporary and the classical, Celia has defined a strong statement for Rosewood Bangkok’s interior design by integrating sophisticated tones, extraordinary surfaces, a décor of rich materials, soothing neutral colour palettes, wall mouldings and textures. Luxurious materials have been used throughout the design such as marble, metal and leather combing with traditional materials including wood carvings and textiles to establish a multi-layered and visually compelling stage set.

Rosewood Bangkok’s 159 guestrooms, including 34 suites and studios and 3 houses with private pools and terraces, all reflect a contemporary residential look and are designed to infuse a modern interior design sensibility into the indigenous elements. Celia skillfully utilises the colour scheme to incorporate dark and light areas to envision a residential feeling in each distinct area while echoing the overall design of the hotel.

Guest Rooms

All guest rooms are enriched by books, art, accessories and personal touches furthering the relaxing residential feel including the clever use of screens to maximize the use of space. The pervading sense of an urban manor fused with a modern Thai aesthetic is reflected through tropical accents of rich woods and rattan-inspired patterns, weaves and panels, while the colour palette is accentuated by bursts of turquoise blue and emerald green against a calming backdrop of white, cream, brown and luxurious gold tones. The bathroom in each guestroom is elegantly designed with refined ornamentation and pattern piles to resemble a royal ambience of the Grand Palace, celebrating Thai craftsmanship and culture.

Celia has also designed Rosewood Bangkok’s public areas, Sense spa and selected F&B outlets – Lennon’s, Lakorn European Brasserie and G&O, with a distinct sense of intimacy and privacy evident throughout the entire guestjourney.

The Pavilion

Artistry is central to Celia’s design aesthetic where she harmoniously blends old-world charm and new rustic applications. The Pavilion at Rosewood Bangkok is a purpose-built, high-end residential-style venue featuring a stunning bespoke metal and glass chandelier and swirl carpet design which reflects the spins and turns of traditional Thai dance. The luxurious interior offers a state-of-the-art concept for event and function spaces with high levels of privacy and exclusivity to create a backdrop for truly memorable celebrations.

Sense Spa

Drawing from the long heritage of Thailand’s healing culture, Celia’s vision for Sense Spa is to draw reference from the caves found in Thailand’s countryside which perfectly complement the authentic Thai experience. The fibre glass walls shaped and painted by a local artist transforms the space and offers a sanctuary of tranquility amidst bustling Bangkok for a journey of rejuvenation, relaxation and the pursuit of well-being.

Sky Lobby

From the moment guests approach the Sky Lobby on the 7th floor, the serene journey begins with a mesmerizing scene. Taking inspiration from the owner’s family history of collecting art, the wall panels are made of glass overlaid with gold leaf exemplifying this notion as Celia explains, “They are the same shape as the roof tiles of the traditional houses from the old town, which I love, but I wanted to transform them in an architectural way so that people would take more notice of them. It also reflected the Rosewood’s philosophy of a sense of place.”

Lakorn European Brasserie

Combining the traditional with an open uninterrupted space creates a timeless presence in the western dining venue Lakorn European Brasserie. Celia makes use of curved panels to create a sense of intimacy in the seating zone where the space has drawn inspiration from an antique musical box. A closer look at the metallic window mesh reveals Thai traditional dance ornaments reinterpreted as individual brass fingernails which are intricately woven into gleaming curtains, blending cultural elements into every detail.

Celia has proudly led Rosewood Bangkok to win The Commercial Interior Design Association (IIDA) 2019 Best of Asia Pacific Design Awards – Hotels category. The annual Best of Asia Pacific Design Awards seeks to recognise and honour the highest level of creativity and design excellence in interior design as well as interior architecture projects. The accolade acknowledges Celia’s design flair in hospitality and residential work with her trademark ofsophistication and layered richness, combining practical functionality to create a unique visual expression and design sensibility.
