Singapore's 'hotel in a garden' unveils its green wellness facilities

BY Aoife Dowling

The newly opened PARKROYAL on Pickering, Singapore's development that's based on a 'hotel-in-a-garden concept', has unveiled its spa and wellness facilities.

The eco-inspired, 16-storey hotel, which will be operated by Pan Pacific Hotels Group (PPHG), has an entire 44,000 sq ft (4,085sq m) floor dedicated to wellness.

A large proportion of the floor has been set aside for green outdoor space and features a two-storey descent waterfall, a 300m garden walk and an infinity pool that flows along the edge of the hotel.

Colourful cabanas are positioned around the pool area, in varying colours inspired by Chinese songbird cages. Natural stone has been used throughout the level to enhance the resort-like natural feel.

Inside there is a four-treatment room St Gregory spa, the signature spa brand for PPHG. Quick pick-me-up or longer pampering treatments are offered using UK brand Elemis or French mineral brand Thal'ion. While other therapies include balneotherapy for couples, Japanese and Indonesian-inspired massages, traditional Chinese medicine techniques (such as acupressure and reflexology), and full-body exfoliation and detoxification.

Designed by Singapore-based architectural firm WOHA, PARKROYAL was built with a strong focus on integrating environmental elements throughout the property. It has five landscaped gardens and 161,458sq ft (15,000sq m) of sky gardens, planter terraces, water features and living green walls are interwoven into the building's exterior and interior spaces. Greenery comprises shade trees, tall palm flowering plants, leafy shrubs and overhanging creepers.

The hotel was awarded the Green Mark Platinum Award by the Building & Construction Authority in Singapore.

The Green Mark scheme recognises buildings which have adopted sustainable features and practices to promote energy and water efficiency as well as environmental conservation. Platinum is the highest rating in the scheme.

PPHG is the parent company to the PARKROYAL and Pan Pacific hospitality brands which make up a portfolio of 30 properties either owned and/or managed by the group, in destinations across Asia, Oceania and North America.

It developed the St Gregory spa concept - which is focused around the four pillars of therapy, fitness, aesthetics and anti-ageing - in 1997. There are now 12 St Gregory spas operating in Asia with the majority at PPHG hotels.
