The program will kick off with a first-of-its-kind Wellness Weekend led by renowned yogi and meditation expert Dave Romanelli from February 4-7, 2016.
“Wellness is a growing travel trend that aligns with our philosophy and mission of offering guests fun, interactive and uplifting experiences,” shares Martein Van Wagenberg, Managing Director of Le Guanahani. “This Wellness Weekend is a terrific way to take a break from the cold winter and kick off our 30th anniversary–a milestone we're excited to celebrate with our guests.”
The three-night winter Wellness Weekend in February will offer a refreshing and immersive experience for guests while providing vibrant accommodations on Le Guanahani's own private peninsula. As more Americans become aware of the benefits of meditation – and more travelers seek wellness opportunities – Dave Romanelli challenges pre-conceived notions of mindfulness and has carved out a niche making meditation fun and indulgent. The experience is designed for those who would prefer to explore meditation with their toes in the sand, a glass of wine in their hand, and chocolate on their palate.
“Most of us are so tech-addicted that it's hard to unplug and truly, deeply enjoy a vacation,” added Dave Romanelli. “The Wellness Weekend at Le Guanahani will pull that plug by offering guests a getaway rich in meditation to deepen the unwinding process, highlight the senses, and experience beauty, happiness and relaxation as it should be. The mindfulness tools and skills guests will learn will last well beyond their time in St. Barth.”
The weekend begins before guests even arrive, with a three-part online meditation series to prepare participants at home for the relaxation to come. Once onsite, Romanelli will guide guests through sensory-inspired meditations based on his Meditate ON series, focused on slowing down, awakening the senses, and filling one's mind with positivity, passion, and peace while indulging in the resort's serene settings. Guests' senses will be treated throughout the experience with culinary treats created by Executive Chef Nicola de Marchi such as warm Caribbean dark chocolate with a gingerbread and foie gras lollipop and organic wine tastings with an expert sommelier.
The Wellness Weekend with David Romanelli is scheduled for February 4-7, 2016 (full schedule below). Package rates start at €3,000 in an Ocean Bay Room, including access to spa, fitness and tennis facilities; use of non-motorized watersports equipment; WiFi access; round-trip transfers from St. Barth's airport/port; and 5% city tax and service charge.
