In the beginning of December, a brand new spa and wellness centre Kempinski The Spa was opened at Kempinski Hotel Cathedral Square in Vilnius, Lithuania. Famous healthy lifestyle expert and creator of the Kempinski The Spa beauty product lines Daniele De Winter attended the opening event and ribbon cutting ceremony.
Located in the unique Vilnius Old Town, right in front of the Cathedral Square, Kempinski The Spa is expected to become a new centre of for healthy living and beauty treatments in the very heart of the capital. Kempinski The Spa offers its guests a heated indoor pool, two saunas – Finnish and steam, six treatment rooms and a fitness area. The facilities and services will be available not only for hotel guests but also for all residents of Vilnius, and any others interested in joining a long-term membership programme.
Noel Attard, Kempinski Hotel Cathedral Square General Manager, states that the brand new spa centre is different not only because of the high-quality services but also because of its unique concept, inspired by the European cycle of the seasons. Every person reacts to cycle of the seasons differently, and Kempinski The Spa’s treatments are created both to invoke and restore the body’s natural equilibrium.
“Until now the Old Town of Vilnius was longing for a place where guests could take advantage of exceptionally high quality spa services and properly relax, enjoying customised beauty services. In addition, we aim to improve one's beauty and health in a unique way – with respect to the natural change of the European seasons. Our hotel was established in a historically important listed building and it has been renovated and restored to the very highest standards, reflecting European traditions. This is why the spa centre was created to reflect and foster these traditions”, - says Noel Attard, General Manager of Kempinski Hotel Cathedral Square.
Kempinski The Spa is focused upon restoring the powerful effect of nature, either by adapting to the outside environment or by restoring inner balance. Kempinski The Spa utilises the power of plants, flowers and herbs in all of its treatments, whether for winter, spring, summer or autumn.
