When it comes to The Fairmont Miramar Hotel by the beach, I’m usually raving about FIG Restaurant or covering a food event that has taken place in their driveway circle around one of the oldest trees in the city.
But it’s no secret that the balance to enjoying all the food I write about is physical activity, whichever activity you may be really into right now. While I’ve been attending Pilates classes on the reformer the past couple of years, I’m always applying the principals of yoga not only to that, but also to my minute-to-minute posture and way about moving throughout the day. Yoga is universal.
Luckily, Exhale Spa and the Fairmont Miramar have teamed up this week to offer a special rate to go with a week of unlimited yoga classes. Because who really wants to eat unlimited, heatlamped food at the buffet, anymore? For a special rate of $260 per night, you’ll get this free week of yoga included (until January 8) so you can detox with proper nights’ rest right by the beach.
And while you’re at it, you’ll have close access to some of the best fare in Santa Monica and L.A. by Ray Garcia at FIG Restaurant. Protip: Check out their FIG at Five, which means the entire menu is 50% off for 1 hour at 5 PM – and it happens everyday, except Sunday and Mondays. Score! Other things to do in Santa Monica would include paella nights at Bar Pinxto, food and cocktails at nearby Michael’s, burgers and wine at Rustic Canyon, pasta at Hostaria del Piccolo – really, while the city gets a bad rap for being such a tourist destination (with blatantly money-grubbing parking meters), there’s tons to do nearby.
An added bonus: They’re having an event to commemorate this special on Saturday, January 5 with a day filled with free yoga, DJ’s, light bites, trunk shows, and prizes. So while you were looking to rest and detox, there’s also an option to party as well, of course.
For those of you who are nearer to another exhale location, never fear: This special will be launching at all locations in the future.
I’ll see you in Santa Monica!
Special Event (trunk show, bites, prizes): Saturday, January 5, 2012
Special rate with included week of yoga: Until January 8, 2012
