Vacation for all the senses V

The experience shower is the ultimate in hotel luxury, offering its users light, scent and sensory sublimeness. Now 30 years old, Kemitron remains the leading purveyors of this service, all the while remaining loyal to its technological and experiential roots.

isitors to spa and wellness facilities are looking for rest and relaxation. With this in mind, there is now a wide range of options designed to bring guests closer to this goal. One of these offerings is the experience shower. It was invented 30 years ago by Bernhard

Mayer-Klenk, the founder of Kemitron, and has since been copied worldwide. However, the original is manufactured today as it was then, in Kemitron’s production facility in Wendlingen, Germany. The showers are available in different designs. Of course, the company keeps up with the times, and the showers have been modernised and revised again and again so that, today, they are state of the art. But what exactly is an experience shower? Mistakenly, many manufacturers whose showers bring water to the customer in different ways also call them experience showers. Kemitron’s go far beyond that, because the goal is to appeal to all the senses, and thus offer the greatest possible relaxation.

Guests’ choice

The guest chooses one of the experiences on offer – a tropical storm or coastal mist, for example. By means of different shower strengths and temperatures, coloured light (possibly with flashing light), suitable smell and optionally even sound – the user is sent on a fantasy journey. Variable sprinkler strengths constantly give the skin new impulses and a relaxing massage. Scents play a decisive role at this point, because the sense of smell is directly connected to the brain, and activates experiences and emotions there. Changing coloured light stimulates visual sensation. Sounds such as birdsong or thunder can also be played. The shower experience thus offers the visitor a predefined experience in which all sensory perceptions are addressed and activated. The individual elements for this are coordinated via control technology, which Kemitron offers as a package.
