Singapore-based hospitality group Banyan Tree Group is set to launch a new wellness concept at a number of its resorts. Banyan Tree of Wellbeing Sanctuaries have been created to meet the demand of newly health-conscious travelers post-pandemic.

The Wellbeing Sanctuary concept will launch throughout 2021 and 2022, combining private villas, dedicated dining options, spas, multifunctional practice spaces and other leisure offerings into one wellness journey. The approach addresses eight wellness pillars:

  1. Sleep Well
  2. Dietary Awareness
  3. Interaction, Intimacy and Involvement
  4. Physical Vitality
  5. Cultivating the Mind
  6. Learning and Development
  7. Harmony with Nature
  8. Sustained Practices

Each Wellbeing Sanctuary gives guests the chance to pick and choose a variety of activities on and off the course. A typical stay includes:

  • Accommodation at a well-being villa designed for sleep enhancement
  • In-room amenities such as yoga mats, stretch bands and singing bowls
  • Pre-sleep bath and body rituals
  • Balanced healthy meals and mini-bar provisions using locally sourced ingredients
  • Bodywork and spa therapy experiences
  • Access to 50 simple but impactful wellness activities inspired by the destination
  • Personalized, take-home well-being guide for sustained learning

The concept will make its debut in China, before premiering in Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Morocco and Thailand over the next 12 months. 

“We have always been known for our spa experiences,” says Ho Renyung, senior vice president, brand HQ of Banyan Tree Holdings. “We are now going beyond that with a unique approach that combines personal well-being and greater sustainability into one concept.”
