The Peninsula hotel group is relaunching its wellbeing offering, Peninsula Wellness, on April 1. 

New additions to the wellness concept, which originally launched in 2006, include the opening of the first Peninsula Wellness Centre, at the spa at The Peninsula Bangkok on March 24.

Kim Murphy, The Peninsula Hotels' Naturally Peninsula nutrition advisor, said: "There is a growing awareness about the connection between nutrition and how we feel in our daily lives, and Naturally Peninsula gives guests new dining choices."

Cooking classes focused on using fresh and healthy ingredients will be introduced later in the year. A new Sattva by Simply Peninsula range of spa products are treatments will also launch later in 2015. 

Developed for Peninsula by Australian Ayurveda and aromatherapy spa brand Subtle Energies, products in the range include essential oils, clays and Himalayan crystal salts. 

Treatments combine traditional Ayurveda approaches with modern techniques and include the Sattva Vedic Aromatherapy Full Body and Facial Marma Treatment and the Sattva Detox Signature Journey.
