SPA & WELLNESS PRODUCTS ARE BOOMING – AS THE WORLD BATTLES COVID-19 – AND ARE BEING SOUGHT TO AID PHYSICAL & MENTAL WELLNESS
BINDU GOPAL RAO

Home is a space where people look to unwind after a long day of work. With the ongoing pandemic, more wellness or relaxing corners are being created in homes as a specialised space to unwind.

LAUNCHES & MORE

Bathrooms continue to be the key element playing multifunctional roles in homes. Today’s bath space is a peaceful sanctuary with luxury touches. Wellness is one of the most important zones in the bath space – the other three areas being the basin area, shower area and the water closet area.

“For consumers with high-end lifestyles, the wellness segment has evolved significantly. From being a luxurious outsourced indulgence to a daily wellness regime out of home, wellness centres in residential townships and wellness zones (comprehensive range of products like whirlpool, spa, steam and sauna bath) in individual households are seeing a surge in demand. These wellness zones are not only restricted to dedicated bath spaces, but places like rooftops, kitchen gardens and even wellness centres as an extension of the house. These zones are often termed ‘wet-wellness’ among architects in India and across the world,” explains Sandeep Shukla, head Marketing & Communication – Global Operations, Jaquar Group.

While this concept is still gaining momentum, the key reasons for an attraction towards this category are awareness, higher disposable incomes, and an improved quality of lifestyle. Jaquar has recently launched two products in the freestanding bathtub category called Tiaara and Confluence, which are made from solid surface material, for better heat retention. The Jaquar range of spa models or ‘well-being circuits’ are high on technology, energy and cost efficiency, created with the primary vision of facilitating relaxation of not just the body but also the mind. Cushioned headrests, ergonomic seats and a host of high-performance features ensure the ultimate spa experience.
