Tony Keane Joins Louis T Collection as General Manager of Quay Perth Hotel

Singapore, Singapore City. November 19, 2019

One of Western Australia's newest boutique hotels, Quay Perth, has a new general manager. Tony Keane joins the hotel's management company, Louis T Collection, this month. He steps into the role with an eye on developing the brand's profile and leading the group's first Australian property.

Keane brings with him over 10 years of experience in hotel management with his most recent role being hotel manager at Rendezvous Hotel Central Perth, where he managed the daily operations of the 103-key property since 2016. Prior to that he worked at Fraser Suites Perth for three years as operations manager.

The Brit-native also spent thirteen years with the Mantra brand of hotels, resorts and apartments with leadership positions at Mantra on Hay and Mantra on Murray, both in Perth, and a two-year general manager role at Mantra on Frome in Adelaide.

"Quay Perth has the opportunity to establish itself as the leading independent boutique hotel in Perth." said Keane. "Our HQ Bar & Kitchen has already established itself in Perth's dining scene as the new go-to place for spectacular views of Elizabeth Quay. Our uninterrupted views of the Elizabeth Quay Waterfront, the Swan River and Kings Park, and given that we are one of the first hotels in Perth to offer a 24/7 co-working space, makes us stand out from the rest of the market."

The 80-room property opened in June 2019 after an 18-month long renovation that saw The New Esplanade Hotel being stripped back to its bare bones and transformed into Quay Perth. The hotel features a rooftop bar & kitchen, HQ; an all-day dining restaurant, Community at Quay; and a 24/7 co-working space, LEVEL NINE, that's open to locals and hotel guests.

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.
