Rebolledo's expertise has flourished under the tutelage of some of the world's best chefs including Joan Roca i Fontané and Ferran Adria. Having worked in Europe, South America, Southeast Asia, the U.S., and the Caribbean has lent a distinctive style to Rebodello's culinary skillset, allowing him to easily master and elevate any style of cuisine. In 2014, Rebolledo was nominated for the prestigious James Beard Award and had the distinct privilege of cooking at the James Beard House in New York City.

"We're excited for our guests to experience the finesse of Chef Rebolledo's culinary expertise and the new culinary creations he will bring to the table."

He left Chile in 1996 to travel to Europe where secured a job working as a line cook at El Bulli, the Michelin 3-star restaurant of Chef Ferran Adria. With a taste for fine dining now firmly engrained, Rebolledo soon found himself working as the Executive Sous Chef at the palace of the King of Spain. Eager to flex his new culinary skills, Rebolledo returned to his native Chile where he opened his own restaurant and ultimately achieve the title of top restaurant in Chile.

Hotel Spa: Back to Nature

As the Wellness Industry continues to expand, hotel spas are also diversifying, placing a greater emphasis on overall well-being. For some spas, this means providing clients with all-inclusive packages that include fitness classes, healthy dining, and offsite leisure activities, in addition to their core services. For example, spas near ski resorts are offering packages that include lift passes, pre-ski yoga sessions, after-ski dinners and spa treatments. Other spas are offering packages that include massages, saunas, mineral baths, hot springs, and recreational hiking and snowmobile activities. These kinds of spa offerings are also part of a "Back to Nature" movement that encourages guests to get out and experience the healing qualities of nature. One such therapy is the Japanese practice known as "forest bathing" which has become popular with spas that are near wooded areas. This practice relies on the ancient power of a forest for promoting a sense of health and well-being. Other spas are incorporating precious metals and stones into their health and beauty treatments - such as silver, gold, pearls and amber. Silver ion baths relax the body and mind, reduce fatigue, and restore energy balance. Gold keeps skin radiant and can even treat various skin diseases and infections, due to its antibacterial qualities. Amber is used to calm the nervous system and to relieve stress. Other natural products and therapies that are increasingly in demand include sound therapy, cryotherapy, infra-red saunas, and even CBD oil, which is being used in massages, facials and foot scrubs, providing a new form of stress relief. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document these trends and other new developments, and report on how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
