The Winnetu Oceanside Resort Appoints Matthew Moore as New General Manager to Lead the Iconic Newly Renovated Resort

USA, Edgartown, Massachusetts. May 29, 2019

Winnetu Oceanside Resort, Martha's Vineyard's premier seasonal getaway, announces today the appointment of Matthew Moore as General Manager for the property's 2019 season reopening.

"We are thrilled for Matt to join our team and are confident that his leadership abilities come at the perfect moment as the resort has undergone a multi-year refresh and renovation," said Winnetu Oceanside Resort co-owner, Gwenn Snider. "Matt's enthusiasm for hospitality and management capabilities are sure to add to the cherished Winnetu guest experience."

With more than 25 years of diversified experience in hotel and resort operations in the New England area, the appointment of Moore as General Manager comes at an important time for the Winnetu. The resort has completed a series of property enhancements including a new pool and hot tub complex, renovations of all 58 suites, and the construction of a new multipurpose Pavilion. This three-story shingle style addition houses the concierge staff, a gathering space with a custom pool table, massage treatment rooms and a lounge. The Pavilion building will be the resort's hub, located in the courtyard that is home to the iconic life-size chess set.

To coincide with the seasonal reopening, Moore will be responsible for all resort operations, leading the way for hotel staff to delight guests with hospitality and oceanside charm. A seasoned expert, originally from New York City, Moore's management experience includes some of Boston's finest hotels including The Four Seasons, XV Beacon Hotel, and The Seaport Hotel. Most recently he has served as the General Manager for the AC Hotel Boston Downtown.

Moore comments that, "I am excited for the opportunity to join a seasoned, dedicated and passionate team at the Winnetu as they continue their journey in providing world class accommodations and attentive, thoughtful...yet unpretentious service to our guests. I also very much look forward to integrating myself into the community and

becoming part of the fabric that makes Martha's Vineyard such a magical destination for all who visit and live on Island."

Hotel Spa: Pursuing Distinction

The Wellness Movement continues to evolve and hotel spas continue to innovate in order to keep pace. Fueled by intense competition within the industry, hotel spas are seeking creative ways to differentiate themselves in the market. An increasing number of customers are searching for very specific, niche treatments that address their particular health concerns and, as a result, some leading spas have achieved distinction by offering only one specialized treatment. Meditation and mindfulness practices are becoming increasingly mainstream as are alternative treatments and therapies, such as Ayurvedic therapies, Reiki, energy work and salt therapy. Some spas specialize in stress management and offer lifestyle coaching sessions as part of their program. Other spas are fully embracing new technologies as a way to differentiate themselves, such as providing wearable devices that track health and fitness biomarkers, or robots programmed with artificial intelligence to control spa environments, or virtual reality add-ons that transport guests to relaxing places around the world. Some spas have chosen to specialize in medical procedures such as liposuction, laser skin therapy, phototherapy facials, Botox and facial fillers, acupuncture and permanent hair removal, in addition to cosmetic body shaping procedures and teeth whitening treatments. Similarly, other spas are offering comprehensive health check-ups and counseling services for those who are interested in disease prevention treatments. Finally, as hotel spas continue to become more diverse, accessible and specialized, there is a growing demand for health professionals with a specific area of expertise. There is a proliferation of top class, quality wellness practitioners who make a name for themselves by offering their services around the globe, including athletes, chefs, doctors, physical trainers and weight loss specialists. 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.
