Publish Date: 01-May-2017

Dubai Monday, May 01, 2017

Fairmont The Palm, the five star resort on the iconic Palm Jumeirah has revealed a new wellbeing concept entitled ‘Be. Your. Best’. Driven by General Manager Mark Sawkins, the comprehensive wellbeing approach has been implemented to support the growing wellness trend within the Middle East travel and tourism market. Aiming to inspire guests to transform themselves through an extensive wellbeing and active lifestyle program, the resort has applied a range of offerings available, all adhering to five key pillars – Fitness, Nutrition, Spa, Beauty and Mind. 
Sparking the decision to enforce the Be. Your. Best. concept is the growing interest from consumers in the resort’s spa and fitness offerings. In line with this, recent research from the Global Wellness Institute (GWI), a non-profit organization that brings together leaders and visionaries to positively impact and shape the future of the wellness industry, identified that the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is the second fastest-growing market in the world for spas and wellbeing after Sub-Saharan Africa. The research also points to the United Arab Emirates toppling wellness growth, more than doubling wellness-focused trips from 2012 to 2017 with an estimated 993,352 trips added and 17.9% annual growth.
Mark Sawkins, General Manager of Fairmont The Palm added; “In line with this cutting edge research and growth in the wellbeing sector, we have unveiled a comprehensive active wellness program unprecedented in the UAE focusing around five key pillars to support a ‘Be. Your. Best.’ concept. Fairmont The Palm fully supports health and wellbeing for our guests and colleagues alike, and we are proud to be bringing breakthrough experiences, specialized experts and the latest in international trends to the Middle East market – placing us firmly as innovators in the region.”
Providing the only holistic and integrated offering in the region that encompasses all aspects of healthy living and well-being, the  key pillars – Fitness, Nutrition, Spa, Beauty and Mind all lie at the core of  Fairmont The Palm’s drive to help guests be their best.
