For 2022, the Hôtel Barrière Le Majestic Cannes at 10, La Croisette is launching its “A desire to…” array of unique packages to satisfy guests’ yearning for things such as shopping, physical and mental health, romance, fine dining and family holidays. We will be looking at their “A desire to get back in shape” package in this feature.
Perhaps now more than any other time in living memory, the hospitality sector is finding itself adapting directly to the change in needs and wants of guests. Probably the best way to do this is via bespoke tailored packages, and this is something the Hôtel Barrière Le Majestic in Cannes is implementing for 2022.
Given what’s happened over the past couple of years, getting one’s mind and body back into shape seems to be atop most high-end hotels’ agendas. For 2022, the hotel will be focusing on health, and one package they’ve introduced called “A desire to get back in shape” should prove very popular. The package combines sport, effort and personal coaching with lots of pleasurable experiences and plenty of creature comforts!
What does the “A desire to get back in shape” package consist of?
The first ace up its sleeve is its personal coaching, with guests monitored throughout their stay by an experienced professional coach, providing a perfect opportunity to explore new training techniques and to take advantage of sound fitness advice that you can follow for the rest of the year.
The coaching complements the other activities included in the Majestic’s personalised programme. These include a fitness routine in the hotel’s hi-tech cardio-training studio, a “swimming” session in the hotel’s heated swimming pool, and two circuits along the Croisette, Cannes’ famous seafront boulevard: one a refreshing jogging workout, the other an equally invigorating Nordic hiking session, but which will still allow time to admire the stunning landscapes of the Bay of Cannes and the Lérins Islands.
However, as most sports enthusiasts are aware, it’s not all about action – you also need to factor in periods of recovery, something that the health specialists at the Hôtel Barrière Le Majestic have not neglected. Taking this on board, they have created three stages of relaxation. First up, an energy breakfast designed by a nutritionist and served in your room or in the famous Le Fouquet’s Cannes brasserie.
Secondly, a private yoga session which provides the perfect opportunity to work on your postures, breathing, concentration and flexibility. And thirdly, an individual sports treatment featuring a one-hour session of stretching techniques to remove any aches and pains in each muscle group and to learn how to manage your body to the best effect.
After all this effort, lots of creature comforts are a fitting reward, something in which this palace-hotel excels – it goes without saying that the Cannes Barrière Resort’s flagship property is a master in pampering its guests.
As part of its “A desire to get back in shape” package, the hotel has included a whole host of delightfully indulgent pleasures: accommodation for two in a Prestige Sea View room; free and unlimited use of the sauna, hammam and fitness centre in the Diane Barrière Spa, the hotel’s temple of wellbeing; a “healthy” VIP welcome that includes a basket of fresh fruit and fruit juices; and “house” gifts for every guest (sports bag, water bottle and bath sheet).
Not forgetting the memorable gourmet experience of a romantic dinner at Le Fouquet’s Cannes, where you can discover the menu designed by no other than Pierre Gagnaire, one of the leading names in French gastronomy. When it comes to health, a positive attitude is a great boost and the exquisite flavours created by one of the world’s top chefs will certainly help in this regard!
