USA, Winter Park, Florida. April 27, 2020

Timbers Resorts, the leading developer and operator of luxury boutique properties around the globe, announced the appointment of one of its top professionals, Nick Fielding, as the company's new Corporate Director of Food & Beverage. In this role, Nick will oversee food & beverage operations across the Timbers' brand portfolio with a focus on redefining the program at Hokuala on the island of Kauai and its esteemed dining establishment, Hualani's.

Under Nick's leadership, Hualani's will debut a redesigned food & beverage program that aligns with the four seasons with new menus debuting on each solstice and equinox dates in March, June, September and December. Fresh seafood will remain a pivotal pillar to the menu with the goal of sourcing every ingredient either from the property's Farm at Hokuala, the island of Kauai or greater Hawaiian Islands for a truly authentic culinary experience. In addition to showcasing hyperlocal ingredients, his vision for Hokuala is to strengthen the property's dedication to being stewards of the land and honoring traditional Hawaiian customs from farm to fork.

Nick Fielding brings over 23 years of experience in luxury hospitality to his new role, including three years at Timbers Resorts, where he was previously the Director of Operations overseeing the brand's global portfolio of boutique resorts and resort communities. Before his time at Timbers, he served as the Corporate Director of Operations for China Grill Management where he was responsible for overseeing all operational aspects of the rebranding and relaunch of the iconic Asia de Cuba Restaurant Group as well as the development of future brand opportunities and global expansion in London, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, New York and Bahrain. During his tenure with China Grill Management, Nick was also responsible for all food and beverage operations of Nautilus - A Sixty Hotel, through pre- and post-opening with Executive Chef Guarnaschelli.

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.
