“With the participation of Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa and Golden Sands Resort in Global Wellness Day, we hope this helps guests, colleagues and communities find their #ParadiseWithin on Global Wellness Day. Guests and the public can join the movement by hashtagging their post with #ParadiseWithin and #GWD2019. The event not only gives us a greater sense of place, but also allows us an opportunity to share amongst friends that we care for our wellbeing and health. Global Wellness Day is all about encouraging healthy lifestyles and positive living. What better way to spread the word than through the global connectivity of social media,” said Joshua Tan, organiser and manager of CHI, The Spa. “We look forward to sharing, liking and following online the collective journey on living well of our guests and colleagues.”
