H2O Power!


Water is one of the most essential elements to human survival. It is an answer to people's quest for life of health, wellness, and energy. In ancient Rome and Japan, it has been used for therapies to heal the sick and as treatments for diseases and injuries. Greeks took therapeutic baths, while ancient Chinese used it for their healing systems.Through the ages, people searched for an elusive elixir to eternal youth and vitality. But what they don't know is that it can be found in the Earth's simple and abundant natural element, water.In Marriott Hotel, one can find a "source of pure water" that offers an oasis of healing and rejuvenation. The Quan Spa celebrates the power of water and its healing and wellness properties. A Chinese word that means spring water, Quan draws in the restorative properties of water into their treatments. Its basic philosophy revolves around the idea that water is at the core of the ultimate health-enhancing experience.
