Whether at home or on a Caribbean vacation, there are many ways to mark Global Wellness Day. On June 11, 2016 Four Seasons Resort Nevis is featuring a wide range of activities and amenities to help both guests and employees try new experiences that can lead to long-term, healthier lifestyles. Vacationers can still plan a rejuvenating, naturally Nevis getaway at the renowned Caribbean beach resort, and enjoy delectable dining options using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, poolside Spa “treat”-ments, and join in nature hikes and family activities.
“We have a wonderful day planned to encourage guests and team members to take advantage of Global Wellness Day and to start new healthy routines,” says General Manager Ed Gannon. “We are lucky to call home an island that has so much to offer. From abundant fresh and natural local fruits, vegetables and fish, to the wide range of invigorating Nevis experiences out in the clear Caribbean air. With all this, it can be Wellness Day every day here.”
For Global Wellness Day, the Resort will spotlight a range of its healthful dining options. Guests can refresh with a strawberry and cucumber infused lemonade elixir in the lobby as they take in the views from the Great House. Or, they can savour the vibrant flavours of the island in their rooms with the local fruit and juice sampler, which showcases a range of Nevisian-grown fruits, such as coconut, passion fruit, star fruit, guava, and mango.
Neve breakfast restaurant will feature a selection of energising beet and lemon, kale and honey, or mango and ginger juices, while the lunch menu in Cabana beachside restaurant includes an amaranth and watercress super-food salad in an herb-garden vinaigrette, made with fresh herbs from the Resort’s garden. For dinner, the jerk spiced grouper with a sour sop glaze in Coral Grill, or Mango restaurant’s coconut sous-vide poached lobster in a passion fruit gastrique offers healthier preparations of irresistible, fresh and authentic island flavours.
For the Resort’s young guests, the complimentary Kids for All Seasons program will host an all-day Global Wellness Day Camp, focusing on the benefits of healthy eating and exercise. Local children are also invited to join in the Day Camp, which will include an on-property nature walk, wellness-themed crafts, natural snacks and an educational video about healthy dining. Additionally, parents are invited to join kids in a mid-day family exercise class to emphasise the value of active living.
Four Seasons Resort Nevis also has planned activities throughout the day to encourage circulation and respiration in the tropical island paradise. Focus mind and soul in a sunrise, beach yoga session facing the Caribbean Sea; or find some friendly competition in a 500-yard (460 metre), guest and employee swim along Pinney’s Beach from the Resort’s on-property pier.
The Spa team will offer complimentary poolside foot massages, which is known to encourage blood circulation and lower blood pressure. Additionally, guests can opt for a special Global Wellness Day head-to-toe revitalising massage, utilising a unique oil created with fresh herbs picked from the Spa’s dedicated herb garden.
