Swissôtel introduces wellness-focused Vitality Room

The Swissôtel group has launched a Vitality Room, the first in a new concept, at the Swissôtel Zurich.

The room was created in collaboration with Wallpaper Composed, the interiors arm of design magazine Wallpaper, and debuted at the hotel in October.

The wellness-focused Vitality Room is, the company said in a statement, created as a place “where guests can revitalise body, mind and soul”.

The room is a new addition to Swissôtel’s Vitality programme. Created to help travellers stay fit and active on the road, the programme also comprises nutritional guides and Vitality meeting breaks with healthy alternatives to traditional business lunches.

Features in the Vitality Room include a clean, minimalistic design, a calm, neutral colour palette, blackout blinds to aid sleep and discreet technology. Swissôtel has partnered with a number of leading brands on the project, including Dornbracht, Phillips, Vitra, Lasvit, Dinesen, Laufen and Nohrd.

The room, which the company statement added, aims to “help guests maintain their mental and physical health while away from home,” also features a workout zone. Custom-made for the room, the Wellbeing Wall offers three training modules, a virtual trainer and a fridge with healthy snacks and drinks.

Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts vice president Lilian Roten said: “Our new Vitality Room, which addresses many aspects of health and wellbeing, is the embodiment of our brand’s values.” The room is equipped with circadian lighting to help travellers get over jetleg or adjust to a lack of sunlight, and a powerful air purification system. Swissôtel describes the Vitality Room as a prototype, with more to follow in the future if the concept is well received.
