Amatara Wellness Resort has entered into collaborative agreement with Bangkok Hospital Phuket in development of an Integrative Wellness Programme.
Supervised by a medical team, the programme will include integrated health plans. Amatara also signed an MOU with Bangkok Airways to provide privileges for customers, such as reward points for its flyer bonus programme and redemption programme for existing clients who stay at Amatara.
Dr. Prattana Punnakitikashem, managing director, Amatara A Destination Spa, revealed, “To offer a new service for visitors who need deep relaxation together with healthcare, Amatara Wellness Resort has collaborated with Bangkok Hospital Phuket to develop an Integrative Wellness Programme that focuses on brain health, wellbeing and anti-aging services.
“This programme will operate under the highest standards covering various angles: brain checks to world medical standards, health consulting, nutrition planning after medical treatment, relaxation and treatments, preventive health education, and wellness lifestyle programs.
“Amatara will provide more convenience to the hospital’s patients in case they need an excellent accommodation service for recovery or relaxation after checkup, with access to superb beachfront rooms and villas, hospitality services and high-end facilities.
“This will effectively promote Thailand’s integrated wellness tourism business. The collaboration also has planned to co-develop a preventive brain health package and a deep sleep enhancement programme to be launched in the future.
“Guests will enjoy more convenient and value-added services that cover transportation, checkup, treatment, and recovery in an integrative way. This will enhance not only the hospitality and wellness tourism sector in Phuket, but also in Thailand as a whole, in order to attract wellness tourists from around the world. Amatara has a vision to be one of the Top 5 Wellness Destinations in Southeast Asia, to enhance the global wellness tourism economy and improve wellness in Thailand to its highest standard.”
Dr. Kongkiat Kespechara, chief executive officer (CEO) – BDMS Southern Group and Director of Bangkok Phuket Hospital said: “Now Thailand has obviously entered into a phase of an aging society. Many irrecoverable diseases and disorders have been found, and one of them is Alzheimer disease, which ranked in the list of top 10 diseases found in adults over 65 years old.
“Bangkok-Phuket Hospital sees an importance of disease awareness, development of high technology analysis programmes, and research of anti-aging to reduce the risks of Alzheimer disease by specialized medical teams.
Ms. Ornjira Kanongchaiyos, director of loyalty programme of Bangkok Airways, said, “As per the agreement with Amatara, Bangkok Airways offers clients 10 Flyer Bonus Points for every night’s stay at Amatara Wellness Resort (duration 3 years starting 15 Sep 2016 onward) to be awarded to qualifying members. For launching of the partnership, Amatara Wellness Resort is pleased to offer 20 Flyer Bonus Points for every night’s stay at Amatara (“double points”, valid for now – 31 October 2016). By cooperation with the resort, we will offer more special promotions for the general public throughout the year.”
