Hotel Casa del Mar Debuts New-Age Corporate Retreat Package

SANTA MONICA, California — Hotel Casa del Mar and Shutters on the Beach have introduced curated activities and amenities geared toward helping guests practice a mindful lifestyle and providing them support in stress management.

At the center of these offerings, Automatic Integrative Relaxation Response (AIRR) private sessions offer activities for corporate and leisure groups, from executives looking to bring mindfulness into their meetings to bachelorette parties. AIRR was created exclusively for these iconic beachfront hotels by John Sahakian, founder of Three Circle Flow and a certified yoga teacher, life strategist and transformational breathing therapist.

“AIRR is an innovative way for guests to enhance their experience at Hotel Casa del Mar or Shutters on the Beach, which I can tailor to align with a group’s particular wellness goals,” said Sahakian. “Whether it’s a short session booked right before a meeting, a daylong business retreat or a few hours with a group of friends, each participant will leave feeling amazing with the tools to better manage conflict, stressful events and relationships — basically everything in our lives.”

Customized AIRR sessions include instruction on principles of body, environment and mind, as well as practicing a range of relaxation methods and breathing exercises, all of which can take place in the hotels’ meeting rooms or suites, poolside, or out on the beach. Pricing varies per menu selections and ranges from $1,000 for two hours with up to 10 people to $5,000 for a two-day retreat with up to 30 people.

Additional mindfulness-inspired amenities include group beach yoga classes led by a certified instructor, Diamond Magnetic Body Ritual spa treatment at Hotel Casa del Mar’s Sea Wellness Spa and Red Flower Hammam Ritual body treatment at Shutters on the Beach’s One the Spa.
