From 10-minute massages and juice bars to beach-side yoga and healthy cooking demonstrations, Shangri-La, Traders, Kerry and Hotel Jen properties will host free wellness activities and offerings surrounding Global Wellness Day to promote healthy and mindful living.
From Hong Kong to Borneo, Global Wellness Day offerings will be unique to each destination and property. Hotels and resorts will incorporate unique local attractions, such as a rooftop spin class in Taipei that will overlook the cityscape and Taipei 101 building or a city bicycle tour to Pudong Expo Park in Shanghai. Hotels and resorts will also integrate local offerings into Global Wellness Day celebrations, such as healthy refreshments prepared by the in-house tea sommelier following a garden yoga session in Singapore or a Rooted in Nature cooking demonstration using locally-sourced ingredients by the executive chef in Penang.
Shangri-La will celebrate Global Wellness Day with the global community on social media. Guests and colleagues can join the movement by hashtagging posts with #ParadiseWithin and #GWD2016.
In 2012, Global Wellness Day was established in Turkey as the first day dedicated to living well. The observation was officially celebrated in 73 countries in 2015.
