Los Angeles, Westlake Village, U.S.A.

Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village, recently named the #1 Hotel in Southern California by Condé Nast Traveler, eagerly anticipates the New Year with a full-year schedule of its popular Signature Retreat. The Hotel offers this experience in partnership with its on-site comprehensive wellness facility, California Health & Longevity Institute (CHLI).

The Signature Retreat is an immersive four-day, all-inclusive wellness experience created to help individuals achieve personal well-being and inspire lifestyle changes. Experts at CHLI use the latest technology and scientific findings to curate workshop experiences, cooking classes and personalised workouts for optimal health and weight loss. This program provides guests with valuable tools and expertise to begin the journey to personal health and happiness.

"The Signature Retreat proved wildly popular in 2019, as guests discovered its whole-wellness approach to learning, changing and maintaining,” says Robert Cima, Regional Vice President and General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village. “By offering this experience through the whole of 2020, we’re allowing our guests to tackle their wellness resolutions whenever and however often they choose.”

The retreat is customised based on a pre-program phone consultation and assessments with CHLI health experts to better understand and curate a personalised experience. Participants are invited to experience integrated group lifestyle workshops led by highly trained and certified fitness, nutrition and life balance specialists. These lifestyle workshops are designed to provide clients with the necessary tools to form positive, internal dialogues that will assist in making better daily decisions and creating lifelong health management skills. Sample workshops include Mindful Eating, Secrets to Metabolism, and How Stress Affects Hunger and Cravings.

A variety of cooking classes and nutrition consultations, led by Registered Dietitians (RD), will provide insightful tips, strategies and recipes to ensure continued healthful eating beyond the retreat. Cooking classes and dining experiences take place at the Hotel’s state-of-the-art open concept kitchen and adjoining Feel Good Dining Room. Retreat guests will not only learn concepts in nutrition and how to recognise foods that suit their specific needs, but also how to prepare delicious meals. Guests will be served daily meals and snacks for the duration of their stay, from menus are crafted with a Mediterranean mindset, featuring plant-based dishes made with whole foods, sustainable fish, free-range poultry and locally sourced fruits and vegetables.

To round out the experience, guests will participate in group workout sessions led by expert exercise physiologists featuring high intensity interval training mixed with weight-bearing exercises. Additional group activities include outdoor hiking, mindfulness + yoga, outdoor picnics, Pilates and barre classes, along with indoor cycling in the facility's Spin Studio. Training occurs both inside the Hotel’s state-of-the-art fitness facilities and outdoors among the surrounding Santa Monica Mountains.
