As French luxury brand Sofitel continues its expansion into Asian markets, the Sofitel Philippine Plaza has gone one step further by offering the first health and wellness treatment center located inside a hotel in Asia.
With medical tourism on the rise throughout Southeast Asia, Sofitel Philippine Plaza has jettisoned the traditional spa playbook, teamed with one of the country’s most renowned wellness experts and opened the doors on a health and aesthetic institute, the first inside a hotel in Asia. “Manila is a tremendous destination for international travelers who want cost-effective aesthetic treatments,” said Goran Aleks, general manager of Sofitel Philippine Plaza. “They stay with us all the time. Watching them exit the hotel for wellness clinics (downtown) sparked an idea: Why not take it to the next level, and develop a concept that goes beyond the quick fix to full-on behavior modification?”
