PALM BEACH, ARUBA (January 10, 2012) – Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Casino & Spa will unveil ZoiA Spa, a new spa concept that will be introduced to guests in January 2012.
The 5,200 square-foot ZoiA Spa – meaning balance or poise in Papiamento – will house eight treatment rooms, many of which will offer an indoor/outdoor experience, and an extensive spa menu featuring luxurious treatments and native ingredients.
The Aruba-inspired, all-natural treatments are based on four key Caribbean elements – sun, sand, sea and love – and the colors of the Aruban flag – yellow, white, blue, and red. The first treatment element, “sun”, which signifies energy, is represented by the color yellow. Sun treatments are geared towards brightening and revitalizing the skin through the use of botanical blossoms. The second treatment element, “sand”, is reflected by the color white as it evokes purity. Through the use of Aruba’s mineral-rich mud, these treatments are designed to detoxify and rid the skin of any impurities. The third spa element is “sea”. These treatments, represented by the color blue, aim to make guests feel completely relaxed just like the serenity felt when hearing gently crashing waves. The final element, “love”, represents devotion and commitment. These treatments incorporate Aruba’s indigenous aloe plant and help guests achieve a sense of well-being through the use of traditional island methods.
“Hyatt Regency Aruba’s new spa will offer an idyllic location for serenity and tranquility,” said Fred Hoffmann, General Manager. “We are excited to introduce current and future guests to our new ZoiA concept, which will further enhance our ‘authentic island chic’ mentality.”
Aloe, which is the overall spa theme, will be in all products used and sold in ZoiA. Aloe Aruba, the island’s only producer of aloe products, will exclusively distribute a signature amenity line at the resort. An aloe garden located in front of the spa will further encapsulate the theme and demonstrate the importance of Aruba’s multidimensional plant.
ZoiA Spa will also offer antioxidant-rich ingredients and products such as Kerstin Florian International skin and body care and Naturopathica, an organic product line incorporating aloe and natural botanicals inspired by the island of Aruba. Additionally, hand-pressed oils and home-grown herbs will be provided by Herbologist Dina Veeris, and will be a staple in all service offerings and experiences. ZoiA Spa will offer ZoiA Salon, featuring an expansive variety of hair, nail and makeup services for guests, locals and bridal parties. The Salon will include a retail boutique handmade jewelry, clothing, luxury linens and resort wear.
Designed by Los Angeles-based design firm Indidesign, ZoiA Spa’s architecture and design incorporates sustainable products and materials throughout the entire space including cork, recycled glass tiles, and qurt – a granite-like stone made from seashells.
