As part of the Principality’s strategy of sustainable and responsible tourism, the New York office of the Tourism and Convention Bureau recently held an evening on the theme of “well-being” at AIRE Ancient Baths in New York.
The event was attended by twenty-four journalists, including from The New York Times, CNN Travel, Forbes, Harper’s Bazaar, Robb Report, USA Today, and People Magazine. The presentation highlighted the history of the thermal baths of Monaco, from the creation of the SBM in 1860 to the current technological jewel that is the Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo today.
Cindy Hoddeson, Director of the Monaco Tourism Office in North America, presented the offer of care and “well-being” in the Principality. Ms Hoddeson also announced that Monaco is the very first destination and one of the founding members of the “Wellness Tourism Association”.
In addition, two partners joined the event – Kusmi Tea and the Spa Metropole by Givenchy. A small succulent plant was also offered to guests, inviting them to discover the Exotic Garden of Monaco and echoing the Principality’s environmental commitment.
