“Happy New Year” is perhaps starting to wear thin now that the first working week’s taken its toll, normality has bitten, and delicious mince pies are but a distant memory. Luckily, FitnessOnToast is here to help by offering some ‘on-the-horizon’ inspo! As part of my ongoing partnership with Westin Hotels & Resorts, I’m going to be giving one lucky UK-based reader (+ partner) the chance to savour his/her very own exquisite Active Escape to The Westin Turtle Bay Resort & Spa Mauritius, where everything is designed to help you feel your best! I’ll have even custom-crafted you a bespoke healthy program too! To enter, just do a little Instagramming, then come meet me for run & workout around London this January!

IMPORTANT UPDATE (Weds 30th Mar):
The ‘group run’ is an upgraded and larger wellbeing experience, and it’ll be taking place in the Olympic Park in London! To anyone who had already registered for the run and had entered into the Instagram competition to win a trip to The Westin Turtle Bay Resort & Spa Mauritius, don’t worry – you’ve been automatically entered in the competition, and a winner will be drawn at random from our new event. I’m so looking forward to meeting you all in person, and to our even-better event where we can all re-energize together with Westin Faya x
As you may remember from my recent post HERE, I’m delighted to have partnered with Westin Hotels & Resorts as an ambassador for their Westin Well-being Movement, which completely chimes with everything FitnessOnToast stands for. In our previous two competitions, the lucky winners have secured active trips to Warsaw and Paris; in this, the last and most extraordinary of our competitions, you can win a luxurious 5 day Active Escape to their beautiful resort in Mauritius! They’ll fly you & your partner out there, furnish you with wellness for 5 extravagant days, and then deliver you back home again feeling energised and revitalised!

“SOUNDS AWESOME! WHAT COULD I GET UP TO IN MAURITIUS?”
As you might know, I love travelling – exploring new parts of the world whilst discovering new healthy dishes and trying out new fitness activities, returning home refreshed, healthier than when I departed and full of energy! Westin Hotels & Resorts very much support this goal in every way they can, which is why I’m so happy to be an Ambassador for their offering. This trip to Mauritius will be much like those I try to showcase HERE in my Active Escapes series – you’ll get a chance to eat delicious, fresh and healthy foods and participate in a host of different fun sporting activities. Find below just little insight into my top 8 highlights that the Westin Turtle Bay Resort & Spa Mauritius has to offer – and there are many more!
1) THE ROOMS
I’ve written extensively about the importance of sleep HERE, the material benefits it can have on your mental and physical health, as well as fitness performance and results. Therefore, you’ll be pleased to know that every room at the Westin offer the ability to sink into crisp white, 200-thread count sheets, down duvets, plush pillows and experience their Heavenly® Bed for a night of truly restorative sleep. I have sampled this on a number of occasions now, and recall my sleeps with the same emotion as if they were some delicious treat! The Heavenly Beds have been gently inducing fabulous sleep since 1999, winning accolades as an industry-leading innovation. Sweet dreams, dear prospective competition winner! In the rooms you’ll also find deliciously scented White Tea Aloe bath amenities, and a breezy, airy feel to the decor.
2) THE POOLS
The resort hosts a vast pool with a connecting pool bar offering fresh, cooling juices and smoothies!
3) THE BEACH – TURTLE BAY
The Westin Turtle Bay Resort & Spa Mauritius is located directly on the beach. This area is lush with trees, replete with swinging hammocks as well as remnants of volcanic rock, bordered by one of the largest swimming pools in Mauritius and the Pavilion, their culinary hub. The other section of the beach is for swimming, beach games and water sports. This gorgeous area is home to countless species of marine life, along with a particularly high concentration of the endangered Green Turtles. The crystal turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean await!
4) WATER SPORTS
Here you’ll be spoilt for choice – think scuba diving, glass bottom boats, water-skiing, sailing, pedal boats, snorkeling and more!
5) TENNIS COURTS & RUNNING TRAILS
Choose from two gorgeous tennis courts or a guided run with their Run Concierge to keep up with your training routine while enjoying the sights of Mauritius. There are both 5km and 10km routes mapped out for maximum convenience!
6) THE HEAVENLY SPA
Book in for one of the many treatments on offer – a facial, manicure or a sports massage to combat any muscle soreness or relieve any tension. Or simply enjoy a relaxing hammam – a chance to really de-stress and relax!
7) THE RESTAURANTS
There are 7 dining venues here, offering the opportunity to indulge in delicious fresh, exotic, nutritious produce. You wont get bored as the restaurants offer a variety of flavours – original contemporary Indian cuisine, Mauritian fusion, an abundant international buffet and beach grill. To ensure you stay on track there are also the signature SuperFoodsRx dishes available on every menu.
8) THE WESTIN WORKOUT® FITNESS STUDIOS
You’ve an opportunity to energise everyday; here you’ll find all your familiar gym-friends; dumbbells, barbells, mats, treadmills, cross trainers, machines – and staff on call to help you. If you happen to have forgotten your gym kit, fear not, as Westin will loan you a fresh, New Balance kit for your workouts! The socks are brand-new and yours to keep; the shoes are fresh and clean. It’s a great solution so that you can travel lighter!
