Spa Esencia raises the bar with locally-developed Svarasa and Ruupa product lines

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – April 10, 2013
– Hyatt Regency Trinidad proudly announces the introduction of two new organic spa product lines, Svarasa and Ruupa.  The hotel's Spa Esencia will now exclusively feature locally-made and hand-crafted products from the wholly natural spa and skin care lines.

Developed by leading pharmacist Vishal Dhanraj, Svarasa, meaning "essence of you" in Sanskrit and pronounced "Var-asa," combines old world tradition with certified organic olive, coconut and palm oils to produce rich soaps designed to create distinctive spa experiences in every bar.  Blending the natural delights of Trinidad and Tobago's colorful culture with the science of wellness and the healing of tradition, Spa Esencia offers full immersion of natural elements essential to achieving optimal well-being while embracing the dual-island's festive essence.

Ruupa prides itself as being one of the newest up-and-coming creators and suppliers of bespoke Soy Blended Candles and spa products.  Ruupa uses a combination of essential oils and fragrance oils to produce custom, long-lasting and clean-burning scents designed to engage the senses and calm of the effects of the day's hardships.  Fragrances range from fruity, citrus, floral, woody and gourmet and the brand also features bath salts, soap, linen spray, massage oil and body lotion.

The new product lines perfectly complement Hyatt Regency Trindad's commitment to sustainability and Hyatt's global corporate initiative, Hyatt Thrive.  As a part of Hyatt Thrive, the island's premier business and meetings hotel also recently announced its participation in a new global food and beverage philosophy, Food. Thoughtfully Sourced.  Carefully Served., changing the hotel's food and beverage planning on all levels while focusing on three distinct pillars: healthy people, healthy planet and healthy communities.

"We are thrilled to introduce Svarasa and Ruupa's unique products to our already extensive spa menu," said General Manager Russell George. "At Spa Esencia, we pride ourselves on the unmatched service we provide our guests and this new partnership will help enhance our commitment to Hyatt's corporate philosophy as well as support the health of our guests and community."

Svarasa and Ruupa are the perfect complements to Spa Esencia's promise to deliver quality individual experiences for each guest. Svarasa signature products include Bamboo Charcoal, enriched with purifying activated black willow bark, tea tree and eucalyptus; the exfoliating Sea Salt Soap, enriched with pink Himalayan sea salt; Cinnamon Soap, with cinnamon, spice, sassafras root and sweet orange oil to rejuvenate skin and Rose Petal Soap made with organic red rose petals for aromatic deep cleansing properties.
