The acclaimed U.K.-based Temple Spa skin and hair care brand, an exclusive Gilchrist & Soames amenities partner, is now available in Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts properties across the U.S. and Canada. Temple Spa is known for its high-performance products and exquisite aromatherapy blends that allow users to create a spa wherever they are, and in this case, within the Crowne Plaza guestrooms.
“We are thrilled to work with Gilchrist & Soames to bring Temple Spa’s professional-grade skin and hair care, aromatherapy and Sleep Advantage® treatments to guests at our Crowne Plaza hotels,” said Gina LaBarre, vice president, Americas Brand Management, Upscale Brands, IHG. “We conducted rigorous testing to determine which amenities would have the greatest appeal to our target guest, and Temple Spa’s products were the clear winner.”
Temple Spa Founder Liz Warom explains, “Our passion is skin care, body care, aromatherapy and spa treatments that replenish and renew. We’ve always encouraged the approach of a ‘spa wherever you are,’ which means taking time to nurture health, regain energy, and restore peace and calm, not only for skin and body, but for the wellbeing of the soul. Taking time to care for yourself as you travel is the concept behind all of our amenity products.”
Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts is also introducing a new Sleep Kit featuring three Temple Spa treatment products. The kit includes Quietude Calming Mist, AAAHHH! Soothing Balm for feet and limbs, and Repose Aromatherapy Resting Cream. These products are all part of the Crowne Plaza Sleep Advantage program that provides a better night’s sleep through premium bedding, designated quiet zones, guaranteed wake up calls and amenities to help guests relax and rejuvenate.
“Our guests spend their days dealing with the stress of business travel, and the Temple Spa products in our Sleep Advantage kit help them unwind and relax at the end of a busy and successful day,” said LaBarre.
“It has been our great pleasure to bring these two outstanding brands together,” said Kathie De Voe, president, Gilchrist & Soames. “Temple Spa is a high-performance spa line that delivers exceptional skin and hair care therapies, and with its witty product names and bit of playful eccentricity, the brand is a perfect fit for Crowne Plaza hotels.”
Temple Spa products do not contain SLS/SLES, DMDM hydantoin, parabens, phthalates, petrol-derived ingredients, mineral oil, urea, DEA, TEA or propylene glycol. The products will begin rolling out at Crowne Plaza hotels in January.
