Westin Hotels & Resorts Introduces Exclusive Wellness Experience with Paralympic Gold Medalist and Artist Gregory Burns

Marriott Bonvoy members in India can now enjoy exclusive masterclasses and engagements with Paralympic gold medallist and artist Gregory Burns at select Westin Hotels.

Westin Hotels & Resorts, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s extensive portfolio, announces an exciting opportunity for Marriott Bonvoy members: a limited-time experience with Paralympic gold medalist and artist Gregory Burns. From June 14 to 26, 2024, select Westin Hotels & Resorts in India will host this exclusive event.

Members can access bespoke itineraries at The Westin Resort & Spa, Himalayas, and The Westin Goa through Marriott Bonvoy Moments. This platform allows members to use points earned from travel and everyday activities to redeem fixed-price or auction-style experiences. Three packages at both resorts will be available for auction from May 31 to June 9, each including a 3-night stay and experiences for two guests.

These curated itineraries will take guests on an artistic exploration of breathtaking landscapes and vibrant cultures of two regions, interspersed with wellness activities. Guests will engage in insightful conversations with Gregory, all complemented by the luxurious hospitality of Westin Hotels & Resorts.

Gregory Burns, a three-time Paralympic gold medallist and world record holder in swimming, is globally celebrated as an athlete, artist, motivational speaker, and author. Known for his resilience and unique artistic expression, Gregory will host guided artistic wellness itineraries and inspirational group sessions.

Commenting on his upcoming visit to India, Gregory Burns said, “India remains one of my favourite travel destinations with its rich tapestry of colour and imagery. I first entered India in 1985 with a backpack, spending nine months crisscrossing the country while capturing scenes and sacred sites with pencil and paint. Revisiting the Himalayas and Goa, where I experienced and learned so much, is truly exciting. These Marriott Bonvoy Moments at Westin Resort & Spa, Himalayas, and Westin Goa will combine the magnificence of nature and wellness awareness with cultural and culinary exploration. Our forays into the mountains where art meets spirituality will complement our explorations of Goa. We look forward to these once-in-a-lifetime adventures.”

Ms. Khushnooma Kapadia, Vice President of Marketing, South Asia at Marriott International, added, “Through Marriott Bonvoy, we aim to offer unique, once-in-a-lifetime experiences that connect our members to the people, places, and passions they love. We are thrilled to have Gregory Burns lead our members on this holistic wellness journey, whether in the serene hills of Uttarakhand or the picturesque beaches of Goa. Gregory embodies the spirit of holistic wellness, a core value of the Westin brand. We aim to elevate Marriott Bonvoy’s captivating experiences, ensuring each engagement is memorable and transformative.”

The 4-day/3-night itineraries at The Westin Resort & Spa, Himalayas, and The Westin Goa promise an immersive experience filled with engaging activities. Nestled in Rishikesh, renowned for its spiritual ambience, The Westin Himalayas Resort & Spa will offer adventure-led activities such as the Kunjapuri trek. Gregory will also join guests visiting Rishikesh’s famous spots, including Ram Jhula, German Bakery, Tattva Cafe, Bharat Mandir, and Beatles Ashram. Highlights include Gregory’s hands-on Himalayan painting session and sound-based healing meditation, complemented by Himalayan-inspired culinary delights at Akasa, the all-day dining restaurant.

At The Westin Goa, located just 700 meters from Anjuna Beach, guests will participate in a chef-led masterclass, immersing themselves in the rich flavours of local Goan cuisine. This will be followed by a studio painting session led by Gregory. Guests can also look forward to an expedition to the Goa Art Gallery and Museum, followed by a dialogue with Gregory, where he shares profound life experiences.

Westin Hotels & Resorts empowers guests to maintain their routines through the brand’s Six Pillars of Well-being: Sleep Well, Eat Well, Move Well, Feel Well, Work Well, and Play Well.
