As hotels and resorts begin to open their doors to travelers, several key hospitality venues are taking steps by which they can help their guests feel safer and healthier without needing to compromise comfort and the promise of a relaxing, stress-free stay. Anya Resort Tagaytay managed by AHG, one of the leading hospitality hubs south of Manila, is taking the lead by bringing in a revolutionary wellness device: France’s Vital Dome.
Anya began offering the infratherapy machine among its wellness amenities on March 1, 2021.
“We are proud to play a part in Anya’s commitment to giving its guests safer and healthier staycations through our Vital Dome and other innovative solutions,” says Katherine Alejar, CEO and Chief Innovator for i3, the Vital Dome’s exclusive distributor in the country. “Anya is the first resort in the country to bring in this healthful technology and we hope that other hotels and resorts will follow suit.”
Just an hour and a half away from the capital, Anya has offered luxurious stays paired with exceptional amenities and fine cuisine. The addition of the Vital Dome to its excellent roster of wellness amenities is expected to give guests a truly relaxing and rejuvenating experience whenever they come over. Paired with the resort’s holistic environment and calm natural surroundings, it offers an unparalleled experience that will leave guests rested, refreshed, and renewed in both mind and body.
Guests who wish to try the latest addition to Anya’s fitness and wellness amenities can try it out at the resort’s Niyama Wellness Center as a standalone treatment. Use of the Vital Dome are included in future suite and staycation packages to give patrons the experience of a truly relaxing and rejuvenating stay.
Patented and manufactured in France, the Vital Dome uses Far Infrared Rays (FIRs) generated by carbon panels within the device to give users a sense of relaxation and renewed well-being. Unlike traditional saunas or massage machines, the Vital Dome’s FIRs penetrate deep into the skin, accelerating regeneration on a cellular level as it safely raises the body’s core temperature. This enables the body to sweat out toxins and other impurities as a way to stay healthy and keep infections at bay. Likewise, the regenerative action of the FIRs reduces internal inflammation which, in turn, helps in long-term pain management. It is also instrumental in healthy weight management and body shaping. The fact that the Vital Dome is also a hands-free experience will also help boost consumer confidence in hotels and resorts, enable them to comply with relevant health protocols and ordinances, and encourage their recovery on reopening.
“Anya isn’t just the first resort in the country to have the Vital Dome,” Alejar is quick to add. “There may already be a Dome in place at Hong Kong’s W Hotel, but our presence at Anya is also the first-ever for any Southeast Asian hospitality destination.”
But this unique wellness machine is no stranger to the hospitality industry, as numerous hotels and spas across Europe now offer it among their health, wellness, and aesthetic amenities. Among those that already have the Vital Dome in place are the Hotel Prince of Wales in Paris, the Hotel Barriere Le Royale in Deuville, and the Hotel Sassongher in Badia BZ, Italy.
Alejar has expressed hopes that the installation of the Vital Dome at Anya Resort Tagaytay will encourage other hotels and resorts in the country to bring this health-giving device to their own locations.
