Running Through Time, An Insider’s Introduction to Barcelona’s Culturally Significant Landmarks
Hotel Arts Barcelona Continues to Influence Health and Wellness Standards in Travel while Simultaneously Immersing Guests in the History of Barcelona.
Beginning in March 2015, Hotel Arts Barcelona will introduce fitness experiences designed for those who lead a consistently healthy lifestyle. These programs arrive at the hotel to kick-start guests’ summer wellness initiatives in a culturally enhancing manner.
Hotel Arts Barcelona is an iconic, 5-star property which puts the city of Barcelona at the feet of the fit traveller. The new “Cultural Fitness Experience” introduces circuits designated specifically for hotel guests, who will discover the city accompanied by a personal fitness coach. Each path highlights cultural landmarks such as the Arc de Triomf, the Montjuic and Estadio Olimpico, the bustling Boquería market, and architectural essence of the city, la Sagrada Familia, among others. The personal coach details the significance of each landmark passed on the route.
Hotel Arts Barcelona understands that, for those who work out regularly, traveling often interrupts an established routine. With this in mind, they designed running circuits to accommodate the needs of a wide variety of healthy travellers. The paths through history range from a 4.1 mile, one hour beginner route, to an 8.7 mile, hour and a half long, expert course. Each participant is allotted two-hours with the coach, providing the opportunity to warm up, discuss the terrain, run at a personal pace, stretch and cool down afterwards.
Upon returning to the hotel, a visit to 43 The Spa for a relaxing massage completes the experience. The “Cultural Fitness Experience” includes accommodation in a luxury Deluxe Room plus a nutritional buffet breakfast at Café Veranda and on-the-go, healthy snacks such as muesli bars, water bottles and fresh fruit to refuel after exertion. On the weekends, Arola brunch can accommodate fitness enthusiasts with detox-focused and vitamin infused fruit and vegetable juices, among other healthy and tasteful options on the menu.
The “Cultural Fitness Experience” is tailor-able to the needs and goals of each guest. The two hour session with a personal coach costs 180€. A relaxing massage at 43 The Spa can also be added to the experience and totals an additional 75€. The aforementioned accommodations, including breakfast and snacks, start at an additional 290€ + taxes.
For travellers who remain in Barcelona for an extended period, the“Afterwork Fits” program for local fitness enthusiasts is another option. This includes an hour session with a fitness coach, access to the spa’s wet zone, including sauna, jacuzzi, ice fountain, hamam and a relaxing massage for a total of 210€ (21% VAT included.)
