Marassi Al Bahrain’s picturesque beachfront area, Marassi Beach, has announced it will host a Wellness Festival on 16th December 2017. The festival is set to be the largest of its kind in Bahrain, and is aimed at building awareness of the elements of a healthy lifestyle for the whole family.
The Wellness Festival, which is free for the public, will consist of four zones – Fitness, Nutrition, Relaxation and Beauty & Body Care, providing a holistic wellness experience for visitors. The festival stems from Marassi Al Bahrain’s commitment to give back to the local community and encourage a healthy and active lifestyle for all.
Guests of all ages can join the festival’s fitness activities, benefit from live health checks, practice yoga, get a free massage, learn about stress management and try the CrossFit Challenge Course. A big emphasis will be placed on healthy eating habits, as local health-conscious vendors including Arawbian Gourmet, Verve Superfoods, BFit Bites and Bake will be providing fresh organic meals, snacks and juices to visitors.
Dr Maher Al Shaer, Managing Director of Eagle Hills Diyar, commented: “When we conceived the idea of a wellness festival, we believed it would ideally fit with the values of Marassi Al Bahrain as a project, which is characterised by a quality and safe family environment with many outdoor areas for walking, exercise and play. Our beachfront has been home to many weekend activities for the public with this being the largest to date, and we plan to have more for visitors of all ages. There will be a big focus on relaxation at the event, which is something we often overlook in today’s busy world. In addition to wellness and sports fans, we invite those wishing to learn how to switch off and deal with stress to come and benefit from our Wellness Festival.”
Marassi Al Bahrain’s two- kilometre beach, with a brand-new waterfront retail, food and beverage promenade, is currently open to the public with a full range of services and facilities including changing and prayer rooms as well as children’s playground, operating every day from 9am – 10pm.
Marassi Beach continues to regularly host exciting activities and events for the public, and has been home to many festivities including a local vendor market, art and photography exhibitions, food festivals, fitness sessions and the popular evening Sunset Sessions.
