Creating unique experiences in wellbeing, Amanresorts has launched an approach that will be echoed throughout future offerings.
Director of Spa Greg Payne heads a team based in Singapore that is finding new ways
to make each property unique. “By the nature of their locations,” said Payne, “all are special in their own way.”
“Pillars” of wellness include activities like yoga and T’ai Chi to spa treatments including Reiki, Watsu, and deep tissue massage. By addressing movement, relaxation, and diet, Payne described his vision as encompassing varied but integrated wellness components.
The Montenegro spa is set in natural surroundings by the sea, providing a sense of space in which time slows down. Covering two floors, features include an indoor swimming pool, private hydro rooms, and four treatment suites, each with private relaxation area. The fitness studio and yoga studio are additional features. “We saw the potential to combine modalities, creating synergies that enable us to offer retreats that combine therapies from the realms of movement, structure, and energy, said Payne.
In Southern Utah, the Amangiri Spa is a destination unto itself. Located in an isolated valley, treatments draw on Navajo tradition. Central is the flotation pool, for deep relaxation.
The Aman Group operates 26 luxury resorts in 18 countries, from Jackson Hole, Wyo., to the Aman Sveti Stefan in Montenegro. Openings in Europe and globally are planned, according to Payne.
