Chuan Spa announced for The Langham Auckland
(Auckland – 6 June 2008)
The Langham Auckland is to be the proud owner of the world’s newest Chuan Spa in October 2008.
Chuan Spa is an internationally-acclaimed world-leading spa brand founded on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
The Auckland Chuan Spa will occupy a spacious 1265 square metres at the five-star hotel and will feature six lavish treatment rooms including two VIP dual suites with private spas, ice caves*, snail showers**, relaxation lounges, his and hers herbal steam rooms and saunas, complete with a unisex Jacuzzi, and heated indoor and outdoor pools. The spa will also feature a state-of-the-art fitness centre.
Chuan Spas are also located in fellow Langham properties in Melbourne, Hong Kong, Thailand and the USA. As with other Chuan Spas, the Auckland spa will welcome both hotel guests and non-residential guests.
As part of the holistic Chuan approach to health, guests will also be able to enjoy Chuan Spa cuisine developed according to balance and wellbeing. This cuisine will be available at the spa and can also be selected from the hotel’s restaurants and in-room dining menus.
For the ultimate Chuan experience, the hotel is also creating two distinctly different Chuan Residences. The residences are luxuriously appointed hotel suites featuring traditional Chinese inspired décor complete with an infinity bath.
The Langham Auckland managing director Mr John Dick said: “We aim to introduce a completely new spa experience to New Zealand. Our treatments are based on the understanding of traditional Chinese elements, with all guests offered one-on-one consultations to enable our highly skilled spa practitioners to focus re-balancing energy. Treatments are then tailored to suit the individual’s requirements.”
During the development of the spa, disruption is expected to be kept to a minimum as the location of the Chuan Spa is located on the second floor with no guest rooms above or below it. This will ensure disruption to guests will be minimal. Convenient on-premise alternative fitness facilities are available for guests until Chuan Spa opens.
The Chuan Journey
In Chinese, Chuan means flowing water and is considered the basis of life and wellbeing; the balancing source for mind, body and soul.
Chuan Spa takes the concept of balance combined with the 5000 years knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and tailors treatments for the individual recipient to address and restore wellbeing in a luxurious environment.
About the design
Auckland company Raj Design conceived the look of the Auckland Chuan Spa. The design inspiration for the spa evolved from the concept of a Chinese garden where men and women retreat from there everyday world to a place of calm. With fabric wall panels of silk, bamboo floor finishes and a warm, natural colour palette, the emphasis is on a soft indirect light and an ambience of calm.
