Book yourself an all-rounded wellness staycation, featuring fitness, rest, and dining elements. By SAMANTHA FRANCIS.
You deserve a pat on the shoulder for having survived the ongoing pandemic so far, but that’s not to say it hasn’t left you a little more dishevelled or worn out than usual. If you’re eyeing a wellness retreat that’s much more than a measly massage or a yoga class thrown in for good measure, here’s something to consider.
Pan Pacific Hotel Groups has partnered exclusively with Club Med to launch the “Body and Soul” wellness staycation package at Parkroyal Collection Marina Bay. As Singapore’s first garden-in-hotel, the lush, nature-filled property sets the perfect scene for a relaxing getaway. Created to help guests recharge their minds and bodies, the package comes in two variations—a three-day two-night or a two-day one-night experience.
Centred by Club Med’s signature Body & Soul programme, each wellness escapade features fitness, rest, and dining elements. The collaboration nicely pairs the all-inclusive holiday company’s curated classes and workshops with the hotel’s localised offerings. Guests can expect to work up a sweat with spin and Zumba classes, embark on urban farm tours, as well as wind down with yoga and barre sessions.
To help guests eat well, the stay includes a hearty breakfast at all-day dining restaurant Peppermint, which serves farm to table cuisine, made with herbs, vegetables, fruits, and aromatics harvested from the hotel’s urban farm, alongside sustainable, locally owned sources. To learn more about the edibles, join the guided tour.
After tucking into a good meal, guests can enjoy a low-intensity workout like barre or yoga, followed by a mindfulness class to help them keep stress at bay. Those who fancy something more intense, can check out spin classes and bootcamps led by Club Med’s instructors.
Cinn Tan, chief sales and marketing officer, Pan Pacific Hotels Group says: “With the evolving awareness of care for self and the environment, amplified by the pandemic, this partnership inspires our guests to make time and space for experiences which focus on sustainability and well-being.”
“While it is hard to get away, it is now easy to get back to your best self,” shared Vincent Ong, senior vice-president for Commercial Southeast Asia and Marketing for Asia Pacific, Club Med.
