With just three weeks until opening day, The Westin Perth is set to take WA by storm as one of the most unique luxury retreats on the scene.
Aside from its 368 guest rooms, grand ballroom, meeting spaces, lounge and restaurant, the hotel is home to an entire level dedicated purely to wellness, including Bodhi J Spa. A restorative urban sanctuary, its menu offers holistic therapies including Reiki and Chakra Balancing, and uses Australian eco-luxe brands Sodashi and Li’Tya. It features a steam room, six treatment rooms, and an outdoor relaxation terrace offering views of the city and Swan River. Also on the wellness level alongside Bodhi J is The WestinWORKOUT™ Fitness Studio, plus a luxurious 20 metre infinity edge pool.
The hotel TV channel even caters to those not wanting to leave their rooms – an in-room workout allows guests to exercise without even having to attend the fitness studio. Curated by and starring popular health coach and model Rachael Finch, the workout series provides a full-body workout including two 15-minute full-body, two 8-minute ab workouts; a short warm-up session; and a cool down and stretch routine. The workouts can be comfortably completed in-room without equipment and are available 24-hours-a-day.
“The Westin brand is renowned for its signature pillars of wellbeing which ensure our guests leave us feeling better than when they arrived, and we are thrilled to be delivering what we believe to be a world-class hotel to the Perth market,” says General Manager Peter Brampton.
This opening counts itself as one of many brands in Australia launching (or re-launching) with a heavy emphasis on meeting the ‘holistic destination’ criteria. Not only are we seeing more luxury resorts and day spas, but the introduction of other wellness aspects, like the incorporation of health and fitness, treatments with a focus on mental clarity, products made from organic ingredients, and food designed to deeply nourish, stimulate and cleanse the body.
These types of full-spectrum, holistic destinations are leading the way when it comes to the wellness tourism industry on a global scale, and we can’t wait to see how it all unfolds.
