Willow Stream and Fairmont spas are encouraged by how many guests are using their spa locations as a healthy local meeting place to kick back, relax and find their energy. Whether it’s a healthier “happy hour” option, an elevation of personal relationships on the to-do list or simply a decision to nurture body and soul, Willow Stream spas are opening their doors and arms to friends and family around the world with great “SoSpa” offerings. “We are seeing more and more local guests coming to our spas to connect, spend some time together and just relax,” explains Anne McCall Wilson, Vice President Spas Fairmont Raffles Hotels International. “It’s almost like having a membership to a private spa club,” continues Wilson. “Guests feel like we know them and that they’ll be taken care of.”
“SoSpa” is short for social spa-ing, a very popular movement in spas right now,” explains Sue Moore, Director of Communications. “Willow Stream and Fairmont Spas are world-renowned for their treatments, well-designed lounges, and spaces where guests can spa together or alone,” continues Moore. “It has been part of the fabric of our spas even before it became a trend. We wanted our spas across the globe to be places where our guests would feel comfortable no matter the occasion or circumstance – alone or with friends. Celebrating or escaping.” With destinations ranging from Scotland to Singapore and Mexico to Montreux, Switzerland, guests can choose from an array of spas truly distinctive and reflective of their destinations.
