Sofitel introduces luxury wellness programs into Myanmar

Sofitel introduces luxury wellness programs into Myanmar
March 4, 2020

To celebrate its first anniversary, Sofitel Inle Lake Myat Min is introducing the first luxury wellness program in Myanmar to focus exclusively on holistic therapies, traditional treatments, nutrition, fitness coaching and educational wellness initiatives.

Offerings include the Wellness Discovery package, with benefits including a pre-arrival consultation, yoga sessions, customised meditation class, spa treatments, an in-room wellness minibar, and holistic rituals in the morning and evening. Each guest will receive a wellness basket in their suite, which includes all the essentials such as a yoga mat, skipping rope, wellness ball and dumbbells. 

Sofitel Inle Lake Myat Min Cluster General Manager David G. Daguise advised “we are thrilled to introduce an immersive journey into wellness, redefining the current offering of experiences in Myanmar.

“In this fast-paced world, we want to provide our guests with the opportunity to be transported to a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. We have focussed on four key pillars to establish our wellness offering - Spa & Fitness, Yoga & Meditation, Culinary Journey, and Local Culture & Traditions.”

The resort’s Roots Signature Restaurant overlooks Inle Lake’s gentle waters and aims to instil a sense of spirituality while promoting the resort’s wider commitment to sustainability. Chef Aung Kyaw Swar and his team support the local communities by working closely — and responsibly — with producers and short food supply chains in order to discover local flavours, creating authentic, delicious dishes ranging from salads and soups to regional specialities.
 
Sofitel Inle Lake Myat Min maintains its own organic and hydroponic garden, which embraces local Shan methods with a contemporary approach to produce fruits, vegetables and herbs. Harvests are not only used in the kitchen and spa, but also shared with the local community and hotel staff.
  
The tailor-made energising and healing programs have been developed to rejuvenate the body, mind and spirit of Sofitel Inle Lake Myat Min’s guests. The mind-body connection of the wellness programs are designed by onsite Yoga Master, Sudhir Thampi. Born and raised in India, Sudhir’s expertise in yoga, meditation and fitness are vital to the overall success of the wellness journey. Yoga for him is as natural as breathing and guests can enjoy private and group yoga sessions as well as fitness classes as part of their package.
