Singapore-based company Verita Healthcare Group is collaborating with Minor Group’s Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas on a global network of integrated, property-based health centres.
In a move that suggests growing confidence in medical and wellness tourism on a global scale, Verita and Anantara are responding to increasing demand for personalised and innovative travel and wellness options.
First off, a centre will be launched at the Anantara Riverside Bangkok. It is currently in development and is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2020. Next will come expansion into multiple locations around the Asia Pacific and Europe.
Verita Healthcare Group Founder and CEO Julian Andriesz commented: “The Anantara Verita partnership will allow people to take proactive, personalised steps towards extending their healthy lifespans, reversing the effects associated with ageing, and enhancing their overall human performance – all within the luxury of a modern and comfortable environment. Minor Group have a database of over 70 million people, and we look forward to launching Verita centres early next year in Thailand and then across their stunning flagship properties in the Asia Pacific and Europe.”
William E. Heinecke, Chairman and Founder of Minor International, owning company of Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas, said: “We are excited to welcome Verita Healthcare Group to Bangkok, my home, and also the global capital of medical and wellness tourism. This partnership represents the coming together of one of the world’s largest and fastest growing luxury hotel brands with the world’s largest and fastest growing next generation healthcare group. It’s a global first and, with the increasing demand for luxury tailored travel and wellness offerings, added to the fact that international wellness tourism on its own is expected to grow to US$1 trillion by 2022 – we think the timing is perfect.”
