The luxurious, elegant setting of Le Prince Maurice with its fine dining restaurants and emphasis on wellbeing is the perfect place to kick off your Fast Diet or to give it an extra boost.
Created by Fast Diet co-creator Mimi Spencer, the Kickstart Fast Diet at Le Prince Maurice builds the 5:2 approach into a program of specially created menus, spa treatments and exercise routines.
On fast days guests can enjoy delicious carefully calorie-counted dishes and on non-fast days Mimi has a range of recommendations for scrumptious, healthy treats marked on the menu as ‘Mimi Recommends’.
She even recommends a range of lower-calorie cocktails such as the ‘skinny mojito’ and ‘sea breeze over lots of ice’.
As part of the Kickstart Fast Diet program there are also some key spa treatments recommended by Mimi to help optimise the diet’s effect such as the anti-cellulite treatment at the hotel’s award-winning Sisley Spa.
Have a session with one of our personal trainers to devise the perfect exercise routine for you on fast and non-fast days or join one of our classes including yoga fusion, Pilates and animal flow.
