The award winning Rees Hotel in Queenstown has added an indulgent plush Pillow Menu for the discerning business traveller and luxury holiday-seeker in all Executive Lake View hotel rooms and apartments at the luxurious lakefront property.

Whether guests are chronic “toss and turners” or loud snorers, suffer from fatigue due to jet lag, have poor quality sleep because of asthma or perhaps need that little bit of extra comforting support; now they can order their perfect pillow for a deep, restful and relaxing sleep when away from home.

The Rees’ a la cart menu offers six choices like the plump ‘passion pillows’ infused with uplifting essential oils like tangerine and ylang ylang to ease anxiety and stress.

Or there’s the soothing soft bundles of local lambswool in the ‘luxurious lavender’ option that’s guaranteed to ease tension and ensure a deeper sleep.

Asthmatics and those with allergies are also catered for with the 100% premium New Zealand lambswool pillows that are resilient to compression and offer a natural softness and support.

Even guests who suffer from snoring and sleep apnea can select the ‘sonar’ that promotes proper alignment to increase airways and aid breathing during the sleep cycle.

The ‘tri pillow’, an essential for new Mums is another staple on the menu and for those that choose the ‘firm complete sleeperrr,’ they can expect to nestle into a blissful 25% duck down inner that’s firm and supportive.

The Pillow Menu completes the growing list of ‘home away from home’ comforts offered by The Rees – special touches like; schist-clad gas fireplaces in every apartment; custom-made and specifically designed ‘Rees beds’ for superior comfort by Sleepyhead, New Zealand’s leading manufacturer of high quality beds and mattresses (in Super King or Twin King Single), and iPod docking stations.

“Guests ask on a surprisingly regular basis if they can buy replicas of our beds because never before have they experienced such a comfortable night’s sleep ­­­­– so we’re pretty confident the same will happen with the new Pillow Menu,” says The Rees Hotel Director of Sales and Marketing, Ms Nicky Gyles.

Pillow Menus are fast becoming de rigueur and the standard in luxury travel internationally, the Korean Times touts Pillow Menus as one of the must-have requirements for business travel and the infamous 12-plus Pillow Menu at The Benjamin, New York rates almost as highly as the Presidential Candidates, proved by its popular ‘Presidential Pillow Primary’ initiative, counting votes for Obama, Romney and Gingrich’s pillow namesakes.
