Are you living your life in the best way possible, every day? Probably you’ll answer this question with a no, and it’s normal. We can’t live perfect lives every day. But: we can live healthy, more balanced, less stressed lives and become better at it with each day. This is possible. Even in a city like New York. The city that never sleeps, and is always 10 steps ahead. That is, what the inventors of The Peninsula Hotel’s wellness program had in mind, too. How can you bring holistic wellness to their guests during their stay at the hotel – and beyond? So the group innovated their spa philosophy and now invite their guests to experience “Life Lived Best.”

The brand-wide initiative provides you at all Peninsula properties with unprecedented opportunities to pursue your fitness, mindfulness, and nutritional goals – and to access those opportunities whenever you wish through a dedicated Wellness Portal and a 24-hour Wellness Concierge service. With this new Wellness program, Peninsula Hotels is breaking new ground in helping you to maximize your health and well-being.

The Elements of Life Lived Best: Physical, Mental, and Nutritional Health. A holistic experience of wellness, that enhances your body, mind, and your nutritional well-being.

Physical Conditioning with Dynamic Classes and In-Room Workout Programs

In recognition that physical vitality is an important component of well-being, The Peninsula New York introduces a variety of new options to help its guests exercise enjoyably. Some of these choices will invite you to pursue your fitness goals at the hotels’ state of the art fitness centres, local jogging or walking trails outdoors, local fitness events or in group class settings.

Others, including guided video routines streamed via The Peninsula Wellness App or your TV, and in-room fitness equipment, allow you to work out at their your own pace, in the privacy of your room or suite, while being fully equipped with in-room fitness gear. Program choices include increased strength, boosted energy, and my absolute favorite: jet-lag relief.

Speaking of jet-lag. It’s something I personally always have to fight with, when I land in New York City. This time, The Peninsula’s „Life Lived Best“ made my jet-lag so much easier to cope with through my favorite Subtle Energies aromatherapy spa treatments and guided meditation, followed yoga sessions, and the best ever Peninsula Spa New York signature ginger and honey tea, which is freshly made every day by a spa manager, according to Ayurvedic recipes. 

Another anti-jetl-ag special of the program is the “Sleep Well, Wake Up Well” aromatherapy experience, featuring Ayurvedic essences from Subtle Energies that promote evening rest and morning energy: Relaxing or invigorating spa-style baths, drawn by Peninsula wellness experts in your own bathtubs, using mineral-rich salts and aromatic or therapeutic essential oils from Subtle Energies. And you will have the sweetest dreams. I promise!

New Plant-Based Menus That Optimize Health and Sustainability

As part of the Life Lived Best initiative, the brand’s health-conscious Naturally Peninsula concept launched with a new focus on plant-based cuisine. The new plant-based dishes – which employ locally sourced seasonal produce, nutritious oils, and non-refined sugars – reflect The Peninsula Hotels’ ongoing commitment to increased sustainability. By prioritizing meat-free, organically and naturally produced ingredients from local producers, the Naturally Peninsula offerings aim to simultaneously benefit hotels’ local communities and reduce their collective environmental footprint.

Healthy looking classes are regularly provided for guests, to learn culinary secrets from the hotel’s top chefs and guest chefs, alongside nutritional tips from the brand’s wellness experts. 

A stay, that does not only make you feel like being home away from home, but also holistically cared for on all levels of well-being.
