Eat well, sleep well, move well, play well, work well and feel well. That’s the mes­sage be­hind the six pil­lars of the Westin ho­tel group’s Well-Be­ing Move­ment. ‘We have recog­nised that ac­com­plish­ing what is re­quired dur­ing a pun­ish­ing busi­ness sched­ule can only be achieved if your ho­tel of choice shares your drive to­wards ex­cel­lence and sup­ports your life­style,’ says Rob Kucera, gen­eral man­ager at Westin Cape Town. MC spent a morn­ing there, sam­pling the ho­tel’s Su­perFood­sRx break­fast with its spread of fresh fruit, nuts, power smooth­ies and nu­tri­ent­packed juices (and su­perb cof­fee). We took some time out on the bliss­ful wa­terbeds at the award-win­ning Ara­bella spa (above) and checked out the 24-hour WestinWork­out fit­ness cen­tre. In the bed­rooms, each cus­tom-de­signed Heav­enly Bed has in­di­vid­u­ally pock­eted pre­com­pressed coil springs that pro­vide top com­fort and sup­port. Make use of the Westin’s on­line por­tal for the global ex­change of well­be­ing info. ‘We be­gan with the unique “Gear Lend­ing” pro­gramme, which en­abled guests to ac­cess the sports equip­ment and shoes they needed for in-ho­tel gym ses­sions, walk­ing or jog­ging so they could en­joy the ben­e­fits of ex­er­cise while stay­ing over.’ says Kucera. ‘The aim is for guests to leave feel­ing bet­ter than when they ar­rived.’ Westin­capetown.com
