Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui, Thailand

Dedicated to celebrating spiritual and physical wellbeing, this Saturday, June 13, marks the ninth annual Global Wellness Day. Although things might look a little different this year as the non-for-profit organization will instead be hosting a virtual broadcast on everything from astrology and skincare to energy healing. Starting in New Zealand and ending in Hawaii, viewers can log into the 24-hour online presentation of wellness activities, inspirational talks, and panels via the event’s social media accounts. Five luxury hotel brands are also celebrating the day with a wealth of thoughtful offerings.

Four Seasons

Standouts from the Four Seasons include healing and mindful experiences conducted by well-being experts and visiting masters at Thailand’s Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui. Broadcast via the resort’s Instagram page, holistic health practitioner Carol Kandell is hosting a 60-minute Art of Mindfulness workshop, while spa supervisor Rattanapron Morkmeung will share tips on creating a homemade body scrub. The Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel is celebrating too with an itinerary of complementary activities that starts with an early morning mindful breathing class and ends with a sunset meditation, accessible via Instagram.

Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas

Celebrated for instilling their properties with an authentic sense of place, the Anantara brand has a collection of thoughtfully designed destination hotels and resorts across Asia, the Indian Ocean, Middle East, Africa, Europe, and South America. The name – derived from the Sanskrit word and meaning “without end” – is said to encapsulate the excitement of discovery and exploration. Something that the virtual offerings from Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas – which include immunity-boosting massages, blessings from a high priestess, and a dawn jog through a UNESCO World Heritage site – should help viewers to feel on Global Wellness Day.
