SINGAPORE (February 2009) – Grand Hyatt Singapore has launched its brand new spa and fitness centre, Damai, which was designed to become known as a lifestyle venue and set a refreshing new standard for spa and fitness facilities in Singapore.
The word ‘Damai’ means ‘peace’ and this lifestyle club offers guests particularly uplifting spa facilities, making it a haven for the mind and the soul, as well as a location for total body rejuvenation where guests can achieve personal goals in wellness.
Damai joins the Hyatt Pure™ collection of over 40 extraordinary spas, ranging from urban to resort in setting, with each one custom-designed to embrace the local environment and culture to provide an authentic indigenous experience. Damai anticipates these criteria and creates an experience of true commitment to the Hyatt Pure™ promise.
Creating a modern spa experience inspired by the Singaporean lifestyle, Damai brings together the cultural healing philosophies, techniques and traditions of Chinese, Malay, Indian and European cultures, as practiced in Singapore, in peaceful harmony. As a symbol of peace, progress and unity, the national flower of Singapore, the Vanda Miss Joaquim orchid, serves as the inspiration for our signature essence. The Damai spa experience is infused with this bloom’s extraordinary beauty and natural resilience, representing the spirit of Singapore.
Featuring 11 all-encompassing treatment rooms, the treatments at Damai incorporate exotic and exclusive spa products from the June Jacobs Spa Collection – a first in Asia. Each room has its own water feature and outdoor garden, giving guests the feeling of direct contact with nature. A Couples’ Room features an indoor stone tub overlooking a private outdoor water terrace with an open skylight, while a wet treatment sanctuary comprises a specially designed Chinese aji stone bed and healing area based on water therapies. Guests can even customise the music selection to be played during their treatments using a dedicated iPod, preloaded with music, that is placed in each room.
Damai also houses a sophisticated fitness space equipped with the Technogym® Wellness System, where each guest is issued with a personal wellness key through which trainers can track and review members’ progress via a central system. Unique programmes can be designed for each member, with a clearly defined routine to follow and consistent feedback provided, resulting in a personalised experience that boosts motivation to achieve personal fitness goals. Well-appointed cardio and strength training stations supplement this system.
Damai features uplifting design by the renowned team of Super Potato from Japan. “We hold the designers at Super Potato in extremely high regard and their work with other Hyatt Pure spas have received outstanding customer response. Damai is another fine example of their ability to marry aesthetically inspiring design with comfort, creativity and functionality,” says Mr. Willi Martin, Area Vice President, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, and General Manager of Grand Hyatt Singapore.
The design component of Damai incorporates a blend of natural materials from the region, while a play of neutral colours, subtle textures, mood lighting and personally selected sound contribute to the total experience. The deck timber used is of finest grade Yellow Balau with legal certification complying with the World Wildlife Fund’s legal timber procurement policy. Damai is the first spa to utilize this timber which has undergone a scientific DNA-based, legal tracking system which also scored well recently on a Green Peace report.
