AKARYN Hotel Group Plans May 2018 Launch of New 50-Room Eco-Friendly akyra TAS Sukhumvit Bangkok

USA, New York, New York. March 08, 2018

With over eight million tons of plastic thrown away each year, consumers are now frequently seeking out responsible businesses that are taking steps to care for the planet. Whilst supermarkets plan for plastic free aisles and coffee brands ditch the cup lids, Akaryn Hotel Group plans to become a single-use plastic free hotel group by 2020. The newest opening, akyra TAS Sukhumvit Bangkok, launching May 2018, is set to be one of the leading hotels in this initiative.

With philanthropy deeply rooted in the heart and soul of this collection of Thai hotels, akyra TAS Sukhumvit Bangkok makes eco-conscious choices. The hotel has sourced glass bottle containers and there is no single use plastic used in the bars. Akaryn Hotel Group has gone above and beyond with this initiative and offers a solution to guests on the go; stylish akyra stainless steel water bottles, which can be refilled anytime during guests' stay are handed to guests on arrival. Self-service drinking water will be conveniently located on every floor to ease the refill. Additionally, guests will notice that in the bathroom, toiletry products are presented in locally manufactured celadon containers filled with essential oil-based products. Bio-degradable bin bags are used in rooms and shopping bags can be borrowed from the closets to encourage guests to refuse plastic bags when indulging in some Bangkok retail-therapy.

A new hotel with serious style credentials, akyra TAS Sukhumvit Bangkok offers re-imagined urban accommodation in the heart of the city. The hotel is ideally located on Sukhumvit Soi 20, an area known for its buzzing atmosphere, green recreation spaces and fine dining.  The 50-room akyra TAS Sukhumvit Bangkok offers guests 355-538 square feet accommodations infused with Thai design.

The downtown property boasts “Siam Soul Cafe”, a real travel experience within Thaiconic gastronomy. The restaurant serves authentic Thai dishes along with healthy salads, pastas and desserts - all served in stylish surroundings. On the top floor, akyra TAS Sukhumvit Bangkok is the host for “Rise Rooftop Bar & Dining”, an upscale high raised space.

Hotel Spa: Oasis Unplugged

The driving force in current hotel spa trends is the effort to manage unprecedented levels of stress experienced by their clients. Feeling increasingly overwhelmed by demanding careers and technology overload, people are craving places where they can go to momentarily escape the rigors of their daily lives. As a result, spas are positioning themselves as oases of unplugged human connection, where mindfulness and contemplation activities are becoming increasingly important. One leading hotel spa offers their clients the option to experience their treatments in total silence - no music, no talking, and no advice from the therapist - just pure unadulterated silence. Another leading hotel spa is working with a reputable medical clinic to develop a “digital detox” initiative, in which clients will be encouraged to unplug from their devices and engage in mindfulness activities to alleviate the stresses of excessive technology use. Similarly, other spas are counseling clients to resist allowing technology to monopolize their lives, and to engage in meditation and gratitude exercises in its place. The goal is to provide clients with a warm, inviting and tranquil sanctuary from the outside world, in addition to also providing genuine solutions for better sleep, proper nutrition, stress management and natural self-care. To accomplish this, some spas are incorporating a variety of new approaches - cryotherapy, Himalayan salt therapy and ayurveda treatments are becoming increasingly popular. Other spas are growing their own herbs and performing their treatments in lush outdoor gardens. Some spa therapists are being trained to assess a client's individual movement patterns to determine the most beneficial treatment specifically for them. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
