Eco-Wellness programme launched by PARKROYAL COLLECTION Hotels & Resorts aimed to inspire and promote conscious living and personal wellness in daily life. This signature programme reflects the brand’s dedication to sustainable hospitality that emphasizes reconnection with nature. Guests can enjoy a variety of sensory experiences driven by the five senses during their stay, incorporating scent, sound, sight, taste, and touch. With eco-wellness as the brand’s focal point, it is built around the hotels’ iconic biophilic design, sustainability, and wellbeing principles.
As part of its multi-sensorial programme, Eco-Wellness is a comprehensive well-being programme that includes several components, such as an iconic biophilic design, sound design that enhances the biophilic atmosphere, optimizing art appreciation to promote relaxation, St Gregory spa experience and wellness activities, conscious dining and mindful drinking, restful sleep, and brand signature scent.
The carefully blended aroma of rosebush, lavender, green vetiver, and warm white cedarwood will soon welcome guests to all PARKROYAL COLLECTION hotels, creating a soothing and natural atmosphere complemented by the curated sound design and public art displays. The scent will be launched at all PARKROYAL COLLECTION hotels later this year.
PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, Singapore’s Urban Farm
Sustainable Hospitality through Signature Urban Farms
PARKROYAL COLLECTION, as a leader in sustainable hospitality, will soon introduce brand-new Urban Farms at PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering, Singapore and PARKROYAL COLLECTION Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
During the media preview, Chef de Cuisine Leon Yee explained to us the concept behind Urban Farm and shared with us the various plants and fruits that are available at the farm.
Joining PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, Singapore’s Urban Farm will provide each hotel with exclusive farm-to-table, farm-to-bar, and farm-to-spa experiences. For instance, PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, Singapore’s Urban Farm offers over 60 different types of herbs, vegetables, and greens, which account for up to 20% of the hotel’s green ingredients in its restaurants, bars, and spa. The harvests at the Urban Farms are sustainably managed and rotated seasonally in partnership with the local agriculture organization, Edible Garden City Urban Farms in Singapore.
Sleep Ritual for a restful sleep
During the media preview, we get hands on making our own pot of tea using herbs that are harvested from the Urban Farm led by Nutritionist, Charlotte Mei. Having a good night’s sleep is essential for maintaining optimal health and feeling refreshed. You can improve the quality of your sleep by using natural aromatic herbs.
PARKROYAL COLLECTION offers a new Sleep Ritual turndown service that includes freshly harvested herbs like thyme, bergamot lime, mint, and rosemary from its Urban Farm. Guests can rub the herb leaves gently to release their therapeutic aroma and brew them in a fresh pot of tea to help them sleep better.
As part of the turndown service, guests staying in COLLECTION Club Rooms and higher categories, and Titanium and Platinum members of Pan Pacific DISCOVERY can enjoy the Sleep Ritual service and amenity includes a scented pillow pouch created in collaboration with FLO.
FLO is a local brand known for producing natural essential oils and herb-scented products. The pouch contains natural essential oils that help to calm the body and mind, promoting a good night’s sleep when placed by the pillow.
Conscious Dining, Mindful Drinking
