帕尔马盐选度假村:一次全新的旅行体验由此开始

盐选品牌的首家度假村将于2018111日在毛里求斯正式开门迎客。

 

伦敦, 2018 九月27日:

Lux Collective 集团旗下全新品牌盐选(SALT)的首家度假村——帕尔马盐选度假村现将于2018111日正式开门迎客。帕尔马盐选度假村位于毛里求斯东海岸,共有59间客房,将以满足文化好奇心为目标,诠释充满人文关怀的待客之道。盐选将秉持旅游的意义不仅在于地点变化,而是将客人带到不同的人身边的理念,让客人与当地人和他们的生活亲密接触,真正融入进当地生活中去。

 

盐选品牌创始人、Lux Collective集团首席执行官保罗·琼斯(Paul Jones)先生评价道:为旗下的第一家盐选酒店选址时,我们首先想到了毛里求斯。这里有难以抗拒的异域美景,有深厚的历史底蕴,有令人震撼的自然遗产和现代文化。在风景如画的海滩和热情好客的当地人之外,毛里求斯还有更多待人深入探索的魅力。作为一处开发成熟的旅游目的地,人们往往只将毛里求斯看作一个适合海滩度假的地方,帕尔马盐选度假村为人们提供了一个认识真正的毛里求斯的机会,能够打破固有成见,吸引不同类型的游客登岛游玩。

 

帕尔马盐选度假村的客人将通过技能交换平台,走近当地人,分享彼此的时间、知识与技能,深入体验当地生活,充分领略毛里求斯的人文风情。除此之外,盐选度假村的客人们也可以拜访我们当地的食材供应商们,感受他们对于工作的热爱。无论是去 Janinne Pamplemousses 工作室制作陶器,和 Kishor 一起晨钓鱼,在 Brisée Verdière Bulleeram 女士手工编织篮子 —— 盐选遍布岛屿的伙伴们都正做着这些美妙的事情,并随时欢迎我们的旅客的加入。 

 

在帕尔马盐选度假村的每一天都能够学到新的东西,度假村的员工以及与度假村合作的专家们将为客人展示他们的手艺。想要亲临盐选农场参与种植?想要向度假村大厨学习如何烹饪毛里求斯风味咖喱鸡?想要掌握马拉瓦纳木沙盒和 moutia 手鼓这两种交互式打击乐器的演奏技巧?只要在度假村的休息区报名,就能收获你所想要的体验。

 

每位客人都将收到一本《这就是毛里求斯》旅游指南。这本由才华横溢的当地人撰写的指南将带你前往那些真正值得探索的地方,与值得去见的人会面。此外,盐选还准备了地图、当地电话卡、盐选app,方便客人随心探索当地生活。客人也可以租用度假村提供的敞篷车或自行车到周围的村庄、寺庙和市场探索一番。

 

盐选深知人、食物、地球三者之间存在紧密联系,明白食物的选择将对环境与客人的健康产生至深的影响。为此我们承诺,只采用新鲜优质、有机健康的食材。度假村的厨师均为国际慢食组织(Slow Food International)和慢食厨师联合会(Slow Food Chefs Alliance)的忠实成员。帕尔马盐选度假村与国际慢食组织及其在毛里求斯的官方代表处Earth Markets Mauritius紧密协作,同时遵循慢食之旅的理念,旨在促进生态旅游的发展,为宾客呈现一场融合当地故事、传统、风味和技艺的美馔旅程。

 

盐选以简朴而不简单为核心要素,坚持新鲜、当地、应季和零浪费的美食理念。度假村不提供自助餐,而是根据农民们当天提供的食材,由当地厨师团队精心打造当日食谱,为客人呈现令人惊艳的料理。度假村的面包房还将提供各种诱人的面包糕点、自己烘培的非洲风味咖啡、当地香茶以及热带果饮,所有食物仅采用新鲜的应季蔬果并加以烹制。厨师们将采简单的古法烹饪方式,厨房使用的炒锅、泥炉烤箱、碳烤架采用三合一式设计,使烟熏制品能释放食物最本真的香气。每天早上都会有当日清晨捕获的新鲜海产送到厨房,盐选农场使用水培法来种植自己的蔬菜、水果和草药,为度假村供应大部分的农产品。Island Bio是当地一家致力于通过技能培训项目和农场培训服务帮助本土弱势群体的非盈利组织,盐选与他们基于共同的信念展开合作——所有人都应有权享受新鲜优质的有机食物。

 

帕尔马盐选度假村还会邀请当地崭露头角的艺术家表演当地风情的sega音乐,并由此成为毛里求斯艺术家为全球观众献上表演的舞台。度假村的图书馆也是放松心情和探索新知的绝佳去处,馆藏均由当地作家负责挑选,涵盖与毛里求斯相关的各类文学作品,从纪实到小说,从神话到民俗,不一而足。


即将竣工的盐选
Equilibrium水疗中心将包含一间盐屋、5间理疗室,以及一个本地理疗师团队,为客人提供一系列以盐为主题的水疗服务,让人能够放松身心并重焕活力。客人也可以参与精彩纷呈的集体活动,加入晨跑俱乐部、在沙滩展开拜日式瑜伽、Brahma Kumaris冥想,或是参加黎明摄影之旅、远足及自行车之旅,亦或在盐选农场练习瑜伽等。

 

可持续发展和环保一直是度假村秉持的核心理念,入住度假村本身就是对当地社区的保护和贡献。盐选为当地创造机遇和就业机会,并通过杜绝一次性塑料品、提倡生物农业和零浪费政策为保护当地环境。度假村还将定期清理海滩,开办农业学校并持续为社区提供环保培训,同时也诚邀客人们踊跃加入到度假村的环保行动之中。

 

帕尔马盐选度假村的标志性建筑由毛里求斯著名设计师Maurice Giraud2005年设计,与帕尔马海滩紧密相连。度假村内设有59间海景客房、花园以及25米小型泳池,由法国设计师卡米尔·瓦拉拉与当地的JFA建筑设计工作室共同合作,对建筑设计进行改造。卡米拉大胆的充满部落风情的波普风格和出色的空间设计都备受欢迎。在着手改造之前,她曾环岛以寻求灵感,亲自挑选手艺精湛的当地工匠为改建项目定制家具、艺术品,旨在打造一处清新又充满趣味的空间,同时又不会喧宾夺主,盖过度假村绝佳的海滩和周围风光。客人将在餐厅里看见岛民家烧制的陶瓷摆件、纯手工编织的沙滩包,在客房中找到纯天然盥洗用品,酒店的每个角落都可见浓浓的当地风情。

 

毛里求斯的总经理Raj Reedoy评价道:帕尔马盐选度假村可谓是毛里求斯最激动人心的新开业度假村了,不仅仅是对游客而言,对当地人来说也是如此。除了摈弃传统宾客和管理团队之间的拘谨礼节之外,酒店还聚集了一批背景多元化的当地员工,能为这样一家由当地人运营、崇尚并传承本土文化的酒店工作,他们都倍感自豪。我们期待着将毛里求斯最好的一面展示给全球远道而来的贵客们。
