Commenting on the opening of the BDMS Wellness Clinic Retreat at Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort, Mr William Heinecke, Chairman of Anantara Hotels, Resorts and Spas’ parent company Minor Hotels, said that the Covid-19 pandemic brought the topic of health to the top of mind for individuals, companies, and whole countries – a trend that has yet to show signs of slowing.

With more consumers becoming interested in preventive wellness, Minor Hotels, being the country’s largest hotel operator, is in a perfect position to offer full-circle wellness services thanks to our partnership with BDMS Wellness Clinic – a recognised leader in preventive and personalised medicine”, Heinecke said.
