Buenos Aires (PRWEB) December 11, 2008
In reaction to the imbalance and stress consumers around the globe are feeling due to today's economic turmoil, Faena Hotel+Universe (http://www.faenahotelanduniverse.com) announces the launch of a 3-night Restorative Detox program.
The team of professionals running Faena's Gym/Spa/Hammam created the program in conjunction with the hotel's Executive Chef Mariano Cid de la Paz and Chef Jon Monterroso - both disciples of Ferran Adrià, famed head chef of El Bulli restaurant on the Cost Brava - with the intention of giving their guests the ultimate mind, body, spirit cleanse.
The Faena Hotel+Universe Restorative Detox Program
The program includes a vitamin, fiber and mineral-rich breakfast prepared by the hotel's nutrition specialists each morning. Program attendees can indulge in 1-2 spa treatments each day including Faena's signature Pranic Healing treatment, which helps recover lost emotional, mental and physical health. Guests will be encouraged to take advantage of daily yoga and meditation classes at the Gym, the steam room at the Hammam and chakra cleansing juices at the Pool Bar.
The program offers several options for physical activity, including bicycle rentals and tango classes. Bikes can be ridden on a circuit that takes one through the neighboring Costanera Sur Ecological Reserve and historical sites in San Telmo, an old-world district of Buenos Aires, just five minutes from the hotel. Tango classes are taught by the professional team of tango dancers who perform at Faena's nightly Rojo Tango dinner show.
At night, the Detox Program will offer specially prepared meals utilizing fresh local ingredients in either El Mercado, the hotel's more casual restaurant, or El Bistro, the hotel's fine dining restaurant. All meals will follow the principles of high gastronomy while incorporating nutritional ingredients and preparations that will restore energy to the mind and body.
All Faena Hotel+Universe activities come with the constant support of an Experience Manager®, who accompanies guests from first contact to post-departure, organizing their activities and providing advice to meet their every need.
3-night package per person in a double Executive Room: US$2,850 + VAT (21%)
