His role will cover everything from design and concepts to facilities and programming.

He joins the team at Accor in place of industry veteran Andrew Gibson, who was VP of spa and wellness from 2014 to May this year, when he left to join the team at Larry Ellison's Sensei.

He also did a five-year stint with GOCO Hospitality as director of spa operations, based in Bangkok.

In welcoming him to the team, Accor's senior VP of luxury brands, Rick Harvey Lam, said: "Emlyn will direct our global strategy in the pivotal area of wellbeing, enhancing our luxury offering through transformative guest experiences. His experience, skill set and leadership traits also position him well for future success within the group."

Brown said: "AccorHotels' discerning, affluent clientele are well-travelled and increasingly motivated by the opportunity to maintain and even improve their approach to health and wellbeing during their journeys.

"My goal is to surpass the expectations of our guests and to infuse their entire experience with opportunities for transformative, innovative and extraordinary moments of wellbeing."
