Melbourne, Australia March 12, 2012 –Nestled in the heart of the Art Deco district of South Beach is a discreet getaway where Old World charm meets the chic ambiance of a vibrant Miami Beach—with guest bath amenities that offer travelers the ultimate in sensory indulgences.
Welcome to the newly redesigned Hotel Impala, a Mediterranean style boutique hotel hidden from the bustling activities of its urban surroundings. To reach it, one strolls under an archway and through a landscaped walkway and courtyard, past an elegant fountain. Once inside, it is like being transported into another world.
According to General Manager Christelle Tropina, the property was recently acquired by Anthony Santini, a native of the French island of Corsica. That would explain the hotel’s romantic décor, including an Italian mosaic of the sun that graces the lobby floor and comfortable rooms that feature wrought iron fixtures, wood furniture and luxury bathrooms with colorful coral rock.
“Our design and décor was originally intended for the Versace Mansion,” explains Tropina. “It was a gift to the Impala by (the late) Gianni Versace and the redesign is 100% Italian style.”
Appropriately, rooms at the Hotel Impala have been furnished with the Jean-Michel Cousteau range of guest amenities provided by Concept Amenities, a global leader in the supply of environmentally responsible guest bath amenities. This signature collection of nourishing bath and body products – named after the famed ocean explorer and filmmaker — has been inspired by the beauty of the oceans. Each formulation is enriched with 100% organic seaweed extract and infused with the aroma essences of apples, coconuts and florals.
“We know his foundation – The Ocean Futures Society – the chapter based in Italy,” says Tropina. “Our owner is from the Mediterranean and supports the many initiatives Jean-Michel Cousteau undertakes to protect his beloved native sea. For Hotel Impala, there is a sentimental value attached to providing these products in our guestrooms. Pampering our guests, with the finest amenities, remains a top propriety and we couldn’t think of a better gift to our visitors than Jean-Michel Cousteau’s bath and body care line.”
This unique range of amenities, from Concept Amenities’ Luxury Collections, was recently recognized with the Editors Choice Award at the International Hotel, Motel and Restaurant Show and Boutique Design New York. Designed to enhance the in-room guest experience, the Jean-Michel Cousteau collection is a superb example of our planet stewardship with nourishing ingredients and packaging that biodegrades in landfill and is recyclable—a win-win for the environment.
For nearly 30 years, Concept Amenities has been an innovator in providing the hospitality industry with the best of both worlds – environmentally responsible products and amenities that entice and delight hotel guests.
But according to Michael Matulick, CEO at Concept Amenities, guest amenities can be so much more than just toiletries: “We’re not just a supplier for the hospitality industry. We’re a trusted partner who plays an integral role in shaping our customers’ brand experiences. We are intrinsically linked to the creation of memorable guest experiences.”
An environmentally sensitive approach extends to every aspect of these products. Soaps are moisture rich and formulated from vegetable based ingredients. Liquids are blended from high quality biodegradable ingredients and enriched with natural and organic extracts. Packaging is constantly reviewed to ensure it is as eco-responsible as possible.
“Whether its evocative new frag
rances, sensual textures, exotic tastes or engaging sounds, we consider everything that can enhance our bath and body products to create unique guest experiences,” says Matulick. “
