A Singapore based multinational company, Verita joins Anantara in signalling growing confidence in medical tourism within Thailand and beyond, according to a release on Wednesday.
The project recognises increasing demand for personalised innovative travel and wellness offerings that go beyond traditional fitness and spa services.
Following the initial collaboration in Bangkok, joint projects are projected for Thailand and throughout the Asia Pacific.
Anantara’s first foray into healthcare, the Verita Health facility is currently in development at Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort and is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2020.
William E Heinecke, the chairman and founder of Minor International, the company behind Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas, said that the 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.
Verita Healthcare Group founder and chief executive officer Julian Andriesz added, “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.
“We look forward to launching Verita centres with Anantara early next year in Thailand and then across their stunning flagship properties in Asia Pacific.”
