Luxury hotel group Dorchester Collection has announced the appointment of Teresa O’Farrell as global head of wellness and spa, effective immediately.

O’Farrell will oversee the spa and wellness offering in current and future hotels and be responsible for developing fully integrated global wellness initiatives aligned with each of the brand’s hotels.

Her appointment marks the hotel brand’s first-ever global head of wellness and spa.

O’Farrell’s tenure with the Dorchester Collection started in 2018 when she came on board as spa director at Coworth Park in Ascot, UK.

According to the company, O’Farrell successfully elevated the hotel’s spa offering and helped integrate a sharp focus on overall wellness and wellbeing. She will be retaining this position alongside her new responsibilities as global head of wellness and spa.

Originally trained as a therapist, O’Farrell managed and owned her own salon for 18 years and then progressed to hold spa leadership roles at UK spas including Sopwell House, The Grove and Luton Hoo Hotel.

In her new role, O’Farrell will report to Eugenio Pirri, Dorchester Collection’s chief culture and operations executive.

Pirri commented: “With more than 25 years’ experience, Teresa is a passionate leader in the industry and I’m delighted to announce her promotion. Wellness is a fundamental part of the guest experience and the introduction of this new leadership role reflects Dorchester Collection’s commitment to a global wellness and spa strategy.”

Dorchester Collection is a portfolio of luxury hotels including The Dorchester and 45 Park Lane in London, Coworth Park in Ascot, Le Meurice and Hôtel Plaza Athénée in Paris, Hotel Principe Di Savoia in Milan, Hotel Eden in Rome, The Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills and Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles.

The collection will expand in 2023 once the brand opens its first hotel in Dubai, named The Lana Dubai.

Dorchester Collection also manages luxury residences in London and Dubai.
