Although many have postponed doctor check-ups and annual physical exams due to COVID-19, the new year presents an ideal opportunity—thanks to growing access to the vaccine—to focus on health and wellness. As a result, Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown recently launched a new wellness experience in partnership with Princeton Longevity Center, a leader in preventive medicine and longevity.

Designed for those who want to take a proactive approach to their health while enjoying a luxe stay at the hotel, The Life + Longevity Experience (starting at $7,700 for one person) features a full-day comprehensive exam at the Princeton Longevity Center, which recently opened at One World Trade Center in lower Manhattan. The next-generation medical facility combines the latest technology with leading preventive medicine experts. The center is the first in the tri-state area to use the new 128-Slice Imaging with artificial intelligence technology to provide the most advanced cardiac assessment and heart attack prevention program of any preventive medicine or health center. Its approach is to help clients create a personalized program to improve their overall health and help combat illness and premature aging.

As part of the wellness program, Four Seasons’ guests will enjoy three nights in an Oculus Suite; daily in-room dining breakfast; a variety of spa services, including a 60-minute Soveral Signature Treatment, a 60-minute Therapeutic Awakening Massage, and a 60-minute Remineralising Crystal Detox; and daily fitness, yoga, and meditation. Available through Dec. 30, 2021, the Life + Longevity Experience can be designed for one or two participants and fully customized to fit each person’s individual needs.

“Wellness is a very multidimensional word, spanning the physical, mental, and spiritual makeup of all of us as human beings,” says Tara Cruz, senior director of Spa & Wellness. “We understand the importance of treating both the physical and non-physical, and to do so, we feel it’s necessary to integrate all foundations in healthcare. Combining efforts with the Princeton Longevity Center, a leader in preventive medicine and longevity, provides our guests with a comprehensive program and in-depth understanding on how to achieve optimum health.”
