corporate therapy

April 30th, 2009

Maybe it’s Enya…or maybe it’s the comfortable robes. Whatever the reason, power lunchers are trading reservations for spa appointments and meetings groups are ditching corporate culture for a more Zen-like experience. As one might guess, the top dogs in the spa and hotel industries are catering to this newfangled trend. For example, ESPA at Acqualina in Sunny Isles, FL is a top spot for South Florida real estate moguls to bring clients for an hour of R&R before signing a deal. ESPA at Acqualina offers this particular clientele a discount on the treatments, and since most of the appointments are scheduled mid-day during the week (when spa bookings aren’t as frequent), it’s a win-win situation.

At Park Hyatt Toronto, they offer inSPArational meetings, which merge meetings and the spa. Whether companies are coming into the hotel for a long day of meetings and want some spa breaks, or if they are coming in as a treat for their staff, we have great options for them. Companies can choose from a wide-range of spa inspired treats including: Mandarin inspired coffee break with yoga stretch, spa inspired lunch, aromatherapy turn down service in guestrooms and of course, spa treatments at Stillwater Spa. The special offer is complimentary appetizers or breakfast for groups coming into the spa (minimum spend amount applies). This allows them to relax and be taken care of!

Park Hyatt Seoul has seen the trend of “spa meetings/spa dates” at the Park Club (Park Hyatt Seoul’s spa and fitness center), which are taking over more traditional business lunch or dinners. Park Club offers an early hour discount program (which is 20% off from 10 AM to 3 PM) on weekdays and guests can also use fitness studio, swimming pool, sauna with no extra charge.  The hotel is located in the financial district, directly opposite the COEX Convention and Exhibition Center. Park Club is located on the 23rd floor and offer a tranquil atmosphere, and urban oasis with stunning views of the central city. The citrus bar right next to the spa treatment rooms serves healthy organic food and beverages, to enjoy them after the spa treatment.
