Epikurean Lifestyle properties are “Limited Edition” and “Signature“ properties, which will never be repeated, as they offer experiences or concepts that cannot be duplicated. For resorts or even city properties, they are “jewels of unique resorts or city retreats”, catering to the experienced world business traveler seeking unconventional, funky or contemporary properties during their city break or resort holidays. It is an evolution, focusing on service which is more about anticipating needs than just providing stylish designs, brand name amenities, and the coolest gadgets. Epikurean Lifestyle are best categorized into urban-cool-and-sexy concepts, which can be Modern & Signature, a strong direction towards rest, relaxation and wellness; Rare & Classic, or Avant-Garde & Off-Beat properties with an attitude of higher goals like: restoring a medieval fort, converting a building, a complete green private island, or refurbishment of a city hotel to the place to be for F&B. These are integral parts of hotel development rather than just an “ after thought” or “a clever selling point”. Regardless of the category, there is a strong focus towards rest and relaxation, holistic wellness or health, sensational culinary and entertainment with music, fine arts or events.
