Get free massage, popsicles and mini golf at these wellness pop-ups

What if we told you that you’re living in a world where you could get massages, popsicles, and take part in a range of cool wellness activities, for free?

This utopic vision of the future arrives in Dubai from the 10th October, courtesy of Westin Hotels & Resorts.

Yeah we know, shut up and tell us how to get these free massages. But we beg patience please dear friends, because this is a house of zen and first, we must explain how this came to be. 

Westin Hotels & Resorts have six pillars that they feel very passionate about, pillars they believe connect with the ways people truly want to spend their leisure time.

Studies have demonstrated that, as a bunch, we want real connections, authentic experiences, life-enriching ones too, we want to unplug and chill the hurl out. Because *snaps fingers sassily* you know we’ve earned it.

This is where Westin’s Pillars of Eat Well, Sleep Well, Move Well, Feel Well, Work Well and Play Well, come in. They aim to satisfy every aspect of our spiritual yearning, and importantly, are prepared to demonstrate that, FOR FREE.

Yes, oh, yes. So over the six weeks between 10th October and 24th November, Westin will create wellness domes in five separate locations across Dubai and Abu Dhabi, representing these six pillars. It also very conveniently coincides with the #DubaFitnessChallenge.
