Borgo Egnazia Reopens With Greater Emphasis on Wellness

Borgo Egnazia
(Borgo Egnazia)

Borgo Egnazia, located in Puglia, Italy, opened its doors to the public on May 12. The property, one of the first high-end hotels in the region and one which helped in transforming the tourism landscape in Puglia, is placing an even greater emphasis on its wellness programming and safety measures as a direct result of the global pandemic.

During the past year, the team at Borgo Egnazia has worked to ensure greater safety and health measures with the aim of making the guest experience more unique during a challenging time of transition in the world of travel and hospitality. To that end, Borgo Egnazia has completely revamped its wellness programming with a host of new offerings and placed even more focus on making the property a true wellbeing destination.

360 Degree Wellness

Borgo Egnazia’s 360 degree view of wellness incorporates everything from food waste initiatives to minimize its carbon footprint for its F&B operations to a science-based approach that draws heavily on the research into happiness and the pillars that support it. Wellbeing extends to every area of the guest experience from the wide-open spaces in nature set among olive trees to the property’s gastronomic offerings. The property has also recently incorporated a new gastronomic philosophy based on the “Golden Rules;” these are a set of principles for healthy living, scientifically recognized and adapted by Borgo Egnazia’s team of experts to the local traditions and knowledge of contemporary cuisine.

Starting in June 2021, Technogym Outdoor will offer an innovative solution for guests to continue their health and fitness programming outside in total safety.
