Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts (multiple locations) are preparing for spring by celebrating the brand’s very own Vitality Day. On March 21, Swissôtel properties around the globe will kick off an inspiring week of activities designed to provide the body and soul with some much needed spring cleaning. Highlights of Vitality Week include a digital detox, where guests are invited to take a moment to unplug and recharge and will be provided with bookmarks with tips for personal wellbeing and restoring balance. Detox tips will also be available in-room and upon arrival, as well as posted as reminders on social media throughout Vitality Week. To further quiet the mind, guests are invited to watch the creation of sand mandalas made by specialists in the lobby, while mandala drawings will be available for guests to color. Guests will also have easy access to good nutrition with the Five-A-Day program, an assortment of fruits and veggies.
Swissôtel’s Vitality Week includes children as well. Children can draw or write down their anxieties and feed them into their Worry Eater’s zip-up mouth, as part of Swissôtel’s initiative to ensure every child gets the chance to feel carefree. Worry Eaters are plush monsters made out of soft velour that gobble up kids’ dark, gloomy or depressing thoughts in one quick zip. In addition, Swissôtel Chicago has invited foster kids from SOS Children’s Villages Illinois for an interactive evening at the hotel, including a Vitality Bootcamp class which will end with a Vitality kid friendly meal prepared by the hotel’s executive chef Dan McGee and his culinary team.
Established in 2012 to reflect the brand’s ethos, the Vitality Program is available at Swissôtel properties worldwide and year round. “Peace… does not mean to be in a place where there is no uncertainty, noise, or hard work,” says vice president Lilian Roten. “It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart and mind. Through our Vitality Week events we hope to give each of our guests the opportunity for peace of mind, a chance to shake off their worries and be at ease, so they may happily embrace the new experiences of their journey.”
