Celebrated annually on the second Saturday of June, Global Wellness Day encourages us to ask ourselves: “How can I live a healthier and better life?” Founded by Turkish wellness leader Belgin Aksoy in 2012, it’s an opportunity to consider enhancing your own well-being on a daily basis.
For travellers, that might mean creating bespoke and elevated sleep, personal care and fitness routines, based on the amenities you enjoy at Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. Here are some inspirations for one day, or for life-transforming wellness.
A Rose is a Rose
Turn your home sanctuary into a pampering space with Rose 31-scented products from Le Labo that will evoke transportive memories of Fairmont stays. Grasse Rose, one of France’s most exquisitely perfumed ingredients, is both feminine and masculine at the same time, and suitable for all.
The floral-infused shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and body lotion are available as long-lasting 8-ounce bottles. For an extra treat, a Bath Bundle comes with shampoo, conditioner and shower gel, plus two each of Fairmont’s plush white robes and towels. Or indulge yourself with a full Le Labo Experience, which also includes massage oil and bar soap, plus hand wash and lotion. A heavenly-smelling packet of Rose 31 bath salts is also available.
Choose from four styles of Fairmont robes (there’s even a miniature version for kids!) and snuggle your toes into our signature slippers. You can select luxurious cotton and sustainable bamboo towels in all sizes, either on their own or in curated bundles.
Spa at Home
The Kerstin Florian line, featured at many spa locations in the Fairmont Hotels & Resorts world, gives you access to professional-quality face and body care in the privacy of your home. Products combine cutting-edge science with the finest natural ingredients. Individual items, from a Turkish body scrub to ampoules of face-rejuvenating pure Vitamin C, recapture your favourite experiences. Bundles like the Clarifying Starter Trio combine several products in one package for an extended wellness experience or a truly remarkable gift for someone meaningful.
ANDA by Kerstin Florian is a curated line of just a handful of skin-care products, plus a facial roller and gua sha tool (a traditional Chinese medicine technique for gentle facial massage). Reusable cleansing cloths come in travel-perfect pouches.
Drink in Wellness
At Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, afternoon tea can often be a decadent indulgence. On an everyday basis, teas and herbal tisanes can create a calming moment in your busy schedule. Seasonal teas, from a winter solstice blend to a Kyoto cherry rose redolent of spring, will inspire moments of reflection throughout the year.
Wellness teas from the globally renowned Lot 35 brand include targeted Cold ’N Flu, green-and-white Revitalize and restorative Jet Lag blends. A Fairmont Tea Subscription allows you, or a recipient, to choose the frequency of new and old favourite teas conveniently delivered, while enjoying 20 percent savings.
Turn the tea ritual into a memorable gift with the Fairmont China Collection. This features everything from a tea cup and saucer to three patterns of a full afternoon tea set, including a tiered tray for delicacies. Down to the tiniest detail, every honey or sugar spoon,tea cozy and accessory recreates happy memories shared over a steaming, fragrant cup.
