Bali’s C151 Resorts owner Hanno Soth has been awarded a prize for his work in the field of developing anti-aging clinic designs that can be integrated into resorts around the world.
The anti-aging innovation prize was presented to Soth in Bangkok, Thailand, on Thursday by anti-aging pioneer Dr Robert Goldman, who is chairman of the US-based World Anti-Aging Academy of Medicine.
Presenting the award, Dr Goldman said Soth’s Onelife+ Anti-Aging centre designs would provide an extra option to holidaymakers and enable resort operators to benefit from additional revenue.

“For the past decade, the medical industry has been seeing a paradigm shift from traditional medicine, which treats sick people to preventative, anti-aging and regenerative medicine,” the doctor said.
“Many hospitals and their administrators have been reluctant to allocate space, commit funds and human resources to regenerative and preventative medicine, for fear of alienating big pharma, doctors practicing traditional medicine and potential loss of revenue, a by-product of healthy people and patients,” he said.
Dr Goldman added: “We are seeing physicians hungry for knowledge and education about medical techniques, products and new treatment protocols and they are coming to our medical education conferences to be trained in these advanced modalities, which I believe will make many current procedures and need for complicated expensive equipment less necessary.”
Soth, who developed the award-winning C151 Seminyak Resort and in August opened a cliff-front villa complex on the Bukit on the southern tip of Bali, said he was “delighted” to be recognised with the award.
Onelife+ is expected to unveil next January what is being billed as an innovate programme of anti-aging treatments.
