Proactivity & Commitment
Established in 2002, Hotel and Spa Essentials Inc. (the Company) offers a wide range of products for both the hotel room and hotel spa. Products include hotel guest amenities such as shampoo, soaps and toothbrushes, as well as towels, laundry bags, slippers, irons and ironing boards, kettles, amenity trays, safes and minibars. The Company holds import licenses issued by the Bureau of Customs and The Bureau of Internal Revenue and is licensed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in the Philippines, as an importer, distributor, exporter and trader of cosmetics. Customers include Shangri-La, City of Dreams, Sofitel, Solaire, Aman Pulo and many others.
The Company initially began as a supplier of spa products (aromatherapy and skincare) to top spas in the country and is the exclusive Philippine distributor of several leading luxury spa brands including Aromatherapy Associates, Biodroga and Algotherm. In addition, the Company offers its own Filipino inspired, locally made, aromatherapy line under the Amu’in brand name. The brand has a strong corporate social responsibility as it supports the lemongrass essential-oil producing community of Mambugsay, Negros. Amu’in uses local lemongrass essential oil in its products and donates a percentage of its sales to the Mambugsay community.
In 2008 the Company expanded its portfolio to include hotel guest amenities and now offers both branded and customized (generic) products. In addition, the Company offers its own branded guest amenities, made in the Philippines, under the brand names Amu’in, Liz Prescott, Island Breeze, Jardin and Natur. For customised products the Company is able to work with the customer in creating their amenity brand concept including packaging, formulation and fragrance and then after final approval of pre-production samples offers manufacturing either in China or the Philippines.
Additional guest room items offered include slippers and laundry bags, irons and ironing centres, kettles, hair dryers, minibars and safes. The latter electrical items are sold through a relationship with Corby of Windsor. In 1929, John Corby designed a non-electrical, horizontal trouser press in a room above a garage in Windsor, UK. Today the company he founded continues to service the world’s top hotels including Hilton, Marriott and Intercontinental.
The Company is the exclusive Philippines distributor of EcoknitTM Towels. EcoknitTM has been proven to reduce towel laundry costs, in several 5* hotels in the Philippines, by up to 40%. A special construction means the towel is quick drying and water saving and snag resistant which makes it last up to three times longer than a woven towel.
The Company is a member of the Cosmetic of Chamber of Industries of the Philippines, Hotel and Restaurant Association of the Philippines and the Executive Housekeepers Association.
