Sleep soundly overseas

Sleep soundly overseas
Hotels are taking a restful night to new levels with a host of features designed for a dreamy experience.

There’s no denying the impact that a good night’s sleep has on your health. And if you’re on the road, sleeping soundly is even more important. In response to this need, Six Senses Hotels & Resorts has launched Sleep With Six Senses, created in partnership with a sleep specialist. Fill in an online questionnaire before you arrive and a “sleep ambassador” will prepare your room – think handmade mattresses, organic pillows and duvets with natural breathing and cooling zones, organic cotton robes and even a sleep tracker app. Upgrade for a Sleep Bag, which includes bamboo fibre pyjamas and other goodies.

Interested in sleep programmes? Here are three others you can try.

Lullaby land

The Library Hotel Collection offers niceties such as in-room humidifiers, satin eye masks, special pillows and even a music system called Sleep Phone – a headband with built-in earbuds that plays soothing sounds while you drift off.

Learn to snooze

In partnership with the New York University School of Medicine Sleep Disorders Center, the AKA hotel group has created a sleep school allowing guests to have sleep consultations, attend seminars and have their rooms fitted with sleep-sensitive devices. 

Eat dreams

Soundproof walls, blackout curtains and supremely comfortable beds help you drift off at the Corinthia London. Guests can also choose to dine from the “sleep menu”, which features dishes rich in tryptophan – an amino acid that forms the sleep hormone melatonin. Book in for sleep-enhancing spa treatments, and opt for a turndown service with warmed milk.
