Shangri-La Mactan Celebrates Global Wellness Day 2019

Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa, Cebu said yes to healthy lifestyles by celebrating Global Wellness Day on June 8 with a series of healthy cuisines, fun fitness hustle, an exciting corporate social responsibility activity, and a unique chocolate spa treatment. Guests in the five-star resort had an array to choose from, whether inside the restaurants, at the beachfront or at the gardens — all of which are dedicated to positive and mindful living.

Fitness buffs enjoyed the sunrise cycling with GM René D. Egle around Cordova area, morning jogging with RM Joost Folkers at the jogging trail, fitness boxing at Treasure Island, and circuit training at Adventure Zone garden. Dance enthusiasts were energized as they danced their way to fitness in Aqua Zumba at the Main Pool. CHI, The Spa’s skillful therapists held a special chocolate spa treatment at the Cacao Garden, and an aerial yoga instructor began and culminated with sunrise and sunset aerial and mat yoga at the scenic Paradise Island.

Healthy dining is also a highlight and the chefs are more than ecstatic to present their masterpieces. The beachfront breakfast at Breeze Bar featured healthy cuisines such as the potato tart, the taho (sweetened flavored tofu with pearls) and whole wheat spinach wrap among others. Tides proudly showcased recipes made using organic and sustainably-farmed ingredients, while Cowrie Cove prepared a fresh seafood feast.

One unique activity the resort included for this year’s celebration is the coral planting at the Marine Sanctuary. Led by our resident marine biologist, guests were coached about marine conservation and were taught how to plant corals at the beach. The planted corals were then placed at the Marine Sanctuary and will serve as a new home to our aquatic pals. Wellness also extends to looking after the well-being of our community and environment, and this is our simple way of bringing awareness about saving the ocean.

Indeed, one day can change your whole life. By participating in Global Wellness Day, everyone is invited to celebrate better lifestyles not just on June 8, but throughout the year.  All are encouraged to join in the growing community by tagging #ParadiseWithin and #GWD2019 when sharing inspirational stories online.
