Forget the days of dull and bland wellness routines. The entire world of wellbeing is changing and Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong is leading the way with the launch of its Well Feeling initiative. Designed to recognise that society has become increasingly mindful of both mindful mental and physical wellbeing, the hotel is offering a wellness experience that goes far beyond a few carrot-based dished or body scrubs.
There was a time in hotels where wellness was once something found on a massage table or treadmill. Healthy eating was relegated to a few items on a menu with vague definitions of nutrition. The traveller of today, however, is well informed and open to new experiences, making more deliberate choices in search of a healthy, balanced life. Using their in-house experts, the team now offer travelers a thoroughly therapeutic visit.

Working with the respected Nutritionist and Functional Medicine specialist Miles Price of the Life Clinic in Hong Kong, Executive Chef Andrea Accordi is helping guests to go beyond granola and rethink their definition of healthy food. Guests can follow the green leaves on all restaurant menus to easily discover tasty new creations and old favourites, nutritionist approved. From Roasted Organic Welsh Rack of Lamb to authentic Thai Blue Prawn Curry, hungry guests are spoiled for healthy choices.
For guests who wish to go deeper, detailed information on key vitamins, minerals and phyto nutrients for each Well Feeling dish is also available. Well Feeling options can also be found in the Hotel’s Michelin-starred Lung King Heen and Caprice.
