Otivm: a new wellness concept onboard Silver Dawn
Silversea’s Ultra Luxury fleet now numbers ten vessels. Just launched November 12th, Silver Dawn, sister ship of both Silver Muse and Silver Moon continues the cruise line’s tradition of offering all the amenities of much larger ships with the intimacy of traveling with just 596 passengers.
On the heels of the line’s enormously successful introduction of S.A.L.T. (Sea And Land Taste), aboard Silver Moon, comes a Wellness Program that is simply unprecedented at sea or on land. Each and every ship, from the 100-passenger Silver Origin, the newest of Silversea’s Expedition fleet, to Silver Dawn itself, features both state-of-the-art Fitness Centers and top-of-the-line Beauty Spas. Now Silversea takes its spa offerings to another level with OTIVM, its completely new take on wellness.
OTIVM OFFERS SILVERSEA GUESTS UN-PRECEDENTED MOMENTS OF COMFORT ITALIAN-STYLE.
At its heart, Silversea is proudly Italian. The Dolce Vita and Venetian lounges, La Terrazza and Spaccanapoli, its pizza restaurant, speak to Silversea’s heritage. OTIVM extends that heritage.
OTIVM is a Latin word that means using leisure time for reflection and introspection. In Roman times, Roman Baths, the precursor of modern-day spas, were places where pleasure and wellness were connected. Emphasis was placed on caring for the body and mind and adding to the spa experience with music, poetry, food, wine, and conversation. That is what OTIVM is all about and what passengers on Silver Dawn will experience. OTIVM will then be rolled out to the other ships in Silversea’s portfolio.
OTIVM IS A HOLISTIC EXPERIENCE FOCUSED ON PLEASURE THROUGHOUT THE SHIP.
Silversea prides itself on understanding what real luxury is. Their longtime tag line is ‘travel deeper…in luxury.” To their mind, nothing makes less sense than a wellness concept based on calorie counting, and ‘boot camp’ fitness routines. No one ever took a luxury cruise to diet. Instead, OTIVM seeks to pamper guests with surprising moments of comfort and delight. Guests can enjoy a whole range of experiences of relaxation and indulgence. And these are not confined to the designated Spa Areas of the ship. They are on offer in Silversea’s superbly comfortable suites–all of which feature superb bathrooms, and almost all of which have balconies which OTIVM makes great use of no matter what the weather.
OTIVM IS A FEAST FOR ALL THE SENSES
OTIVM will delight and surprise Silversea’s pampered passengers with moments of pure sensory pleasure in and out of their suites. A soft cashmere blanket and a cup of hot chocolate. A bottle of champagne to drink while taking a bath. A fountain of chocolate and fruit after a massage. Bath salts and Scent diffusers of passengers’ own choosing to perfume their baths and bedrooms. Musical playlists to encourage complete relaxation or falling asleep to the sounds of the sea. Truffled popcorn will accompany a favorite in-suite movie or a midnight snack of Foie Gras Burgers, Caviar and Lobster. There is even a vegetarian option– all available at any hour with one call to In-Suite Dining.
OTIVM EVEN INSPIRED AN ENTIRELY NEW SLEEPING EXPERIENCE
One third of every Silversea cruise is spent in bed. Acknowledging that fact, with the arrival of OTIVM, Silversea has developed a completely redesigned sleeping experience. It starts with a brand-new mattress—the OTIVM Soft Touch with its layers and layers of comfort and support. And to accompany the new mattress, a redesigned pillow menu will be introduced along with a selection of blankets and pillow mists individually selected by Silversea guests. There are even new luxury linens from Italy’s most prestigious linen maker, the 154-year-old Revolta Carmignani.
OTIVM ALLOWS SILVERSEA GUESTS TO DIVE DEEP OR FLOAT ON THE SURFACE OF ALL THAT’S ON OFFER
You won’t have to suffer endless sales pitches and complicated explanations when you delve into OTIVM. It is not a futuristic laboratory where age-defying machinery is developed. What guests will discover is a multi-dimensional experience of their own choosing. You can create your own personalized path combining treatments, thermal areas, natural elements and ingredients – and always with unexpected luxury touches like sipping your favorite cocktail or mocktail or snacking on delicious canapes in the most comfortable armchair. In short, OTIVM is completely unique to Silversea and truly what Silversea is all about.
