Borgo Egnazia Puglia, Italy
Borgo Egnazia stands true to its tagline, it’s like nowhere else. Situated on the southern Italian coast of Puglia, the resort boasts a collection of impressive villas, spacious rooms and cute 2-storey ‘casettas’ all laid out like a traditional Pulgian village in uniform cream-colored stone with intertwining cobblestone streets and seemingly secret pathways. At the heart of the Borgo (meaning village in Italian) is the central piazza, which comes alive at night with special dinners and events held for guests. The timeless cream and white décor is simple yet elegantly chic and attention to detail around the resort is impeccable. The small chapel to the side of the piazza is home to weddings, celebrations and in our case, a spectacular vegetarian dinner prepared for the press delegates and PR team enjoying the resort after the Global Wellness Summit.

The Global Wellness Summit (GWS), the annual event focused on the $3.7 trillion global wellness economy, wrapped up its incredibly successful 3-day Summit earlier this month at The Breakers Palm Beach, FL. The event, which attracted a record 600+ health and wellness leaders from 43 countries, included an inspirational “Wellness Moonshot,” a call-to-action to rid the world of preventable disease. Former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Richard Carmona, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Dr. Andrew Weil and Weight Watchers’ CEO Mindy Grossman were just some of the luminaries that voiced their strong support for this massive, yet urgently needed, goal.
