Hunter Amenities is thrilled to be exclusively partnering with endota to bring spa quality skin and body care into the hotel room. We spoke with endota CEO Melanie Gleeson and Michael Matulick (Hunter Amenities MD, APAC) to discuss the partnership.

Tell us about the range that you are taking into hotels. How has the environment proved a source of inspiration for the hotel amenity range?

Melanie Gleeson, endota CEO

Melanie: Partnering with Hunter Amenities, endota will introduce a Signature Hand and Body Duo along with a new Shampoo and Conditioner. The amenities range contains naturally derived ingredients, scented with 100% pure essential oils and enriched with the signature endota scent that our clients have come to know and love. Featuring
Tasmanian Mountain Pepper Berry, rich in amino acids and polyphenols, the formula will protect and nourish the skin and hair. Hotel guests will feel cleansed, nurtured and hydrated as the naturally-sourced ingredients work their magic.

Michael, tell us about the process in bringing endota to the hotel market? Why is this a good fit for your customers?

Michael: We are thrilled to be partnering exclusively with endota for their hotel collection and take a great amount of pride in providing an exceptional experience for our customers. As sensory experts, we offer a full range of services from concept development through to final production and we’ve really enjoyed the process working with the endota team.

There is immense excitement amongst our Hunter global network about the opportunities with endota, with several hotels already reaching out directly. Our customers are telling us they want natural products, and luxurious experiences and we feel the endota brand fits this perfectly. To be able to offer something so authentically Australian, as well as one which is synonymous with wellness provides a great opportunity for this brand to expand their global footprint.

Why is this important for your customers?

Michael: Coming out of Covid, everyone has been through a lot and it seems like life now is busier than ever. People are looking for micro moments in their day to take some time for themselves, and we feel the endota brand allows them to do this. We’ve got some exciting launch plans and are really excited to see this brand roll out in our customers properties.

Melanie, you’ve been a pioneer in the Spa and Wellness industry, why did you make the decision to expand into the hotel landscape?

Melanie: I believe that spa experiences and the opportunity to experience wellbeing should always be accessible, whether in our spas or on an overnight stay. By entering the hotel landscape, endota is bringing the spa experience into a new environment and offering guests the opportunity to prioritise their wellbeing while they travel. Our hotel amenity range will enhance any hotel stay, transforming a hotel room into a sanctuary of calm and promoting moments of relaxation and mindfulness.

Why have you chosen to use pure essential oils in your formula? Are there any additional benefits for guests?

Melanie: Infused with the signature endota scent, the hotel amenity range will bring the spa experience into every hotel room and encourage guests to unwind, reflect and rejuvenate.

Guests will experience the calming and stress-relieving benefits of aromatherapy through our 100% pure essential oil signature scent. Aromatherapy is a time-tested practice that uses the aromas of essential oils to enhance our physical and mental wellbeing. Think stress relief, relaxation and grounding – all experienced while cleansing and hydrating your hair and body.

What has the process with the product development and range expansion been?

Melanie: Since our inception, we have always championed wellbeing and encouraged our community to care for their mind, body and skin. We plan to continue our growing skincare ranges, wellness tools and hotel offerings. Entering the hotel landscape is a natural evolution that stems from our integral ethos of helping people feel better and integrating wellbeing practices into their daily lives. We recognise the benefit in self-care rituals, not only at home, but whilst traveling too.

What’s next?

Melanie: We will continue to nurture these self-care rituals with the endota Retreat. An immersive wellbeing experience delivered online, perfect for those traveling and offers a variety of wellness practices such as meditation, sound bowl healings, yoga and pilates, as well as over 100 nourishing recipes and tools to support mental wellbeing. endota Retreat was designed to help build sustainable self-care micro rituals that nourish, nurture and grow your mind, body and self. We would love to see our endota Retreat offering extended to the hotel room.

endota’s commitment to natural skin and body products will offer the travel industry a cleaner alternative that is kinder to the earth. Guests can feel confident that the products they are using will work in harmony with their body and the environment.

Melanie Gleeson, endota CEO

Michael: We’d love to see these amenities on international airlines. Watch this space!
