The brand-new Raffles Spa situated in the iconic Raffles Hotel Singapore is not just a holistic sanctuary of indulgence. It aims to provide comfort and luxury on every level, right down to the soles of your feet.
Whilst they enjoy their spa experience, guests are now treated to wearing a pair of Indosole slippers during their treatment stay. Chosen for their anti-slip properties, the waterproof slides provide a minimalist style and practical comfort for spa guests.
Raffles Hotel Spa leading the way in reducing single-use slippers for spa guests, opting for responsibly made shoes from a local brand, Indosole, using recycled tire technology and environmentally friendly production.
In order to offer guests a sterilized shoe, it was imperative a 100% waterproof slide was sourced, but going one step further than just offering a simple rubber slipper, Raffles Hotel Spa has chosen one of the most sustainably made slippers available on the market.
Made using responsible production in Indonesia, the Indosole brand has received the highly coveted B-Corp accreditation, meeting the world’s most rigorous standards of social and environmental performance.
Raffles Hotel Spa recognizes the importance of working with brands that have a positive environmental impact and Indosole’s accreditation is a testament to ensuring that is happening.
Eco- or Sustainable Tourism is on the rise in Singapore and South East Asia as more and more tourists are questioning the spending of their tourist dollar and how it impacts the environment. As the United Nations noted last year, sustainable tourism is also about “social inclusiveness, employment, and poverty reduction” and “environmental protection and climate change”. Indosole is just one among a rising tide of companies that are aiming to address all of these issues in every aspect of the business.
We are excited to be working with such an iconic brand as Raffles Hotel and supporting them in their sustainable goals. By choosing locally-made products from South East Asia together we are ensuring a lighter carbon footprint as well.
Along with the growing awareness of the impact of single-use products are having on our oceans and environment, there is growing pressure on the hotel industry to make a change and Raffles Hotel Spa is making conscious efforts to lead the way in this area.
Guests and visitors can also purchase a select range of Indosole Slides at the Raffles Hotel Spa.
