So, you are back from a long day of ‘tourist duties’ and all you want to do is head to your hotel room and drop down dead as soon as you see the bed? Not so fast – Spend some time on the ‘Pillow menu’ by your bedside. After all, you are about to spend the night with this fluffy piece of comfort.
Here’s our pick of pillows from hotel menus across the world:
Magnetic therapy pillow – Reduces swelling and discomfort, relieve insomnia and fatigue, soothes tense muscles and aching joints, and improves skin tone by stimulating circulation. Best for those who sleep on their back. Not for expectant mothers or those with a heart condition.
Swedish Memory Pillow– Heat-sensitive foam responds to temperature and keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter. It’s self-molding, so it relieves pressure and provides great neck support. Recommended for those who sleep on their back or side.
Snore-No-More Pillow– Designed to elevate the chin from the chest to keep the airway open and thus reduces snoring for a deeper restful sleep.
Hard Pillow with Horse Hair: sounds unappealing, but appears on many hotel menus. The reason: it’s a matter-of-fact pillow whose coarse filling gives you firm support.
Candy-cane Shaped Pillow: Supports head and upper back. Assured comfort for those who sleep on their side.
