Wellness in the Wild: Anantara The Marker Dublin Hotel Invites Guests to Dive into Nature with New Wild Swimming Experience

Plunging into the natural waters, with its unbeatable mix of adrenaline and tranquillity, is a popular pastime in Ireland where numerous bathing spots can be found for swimmers of all abilities. For holidaymakers and business travellers curious to dip their toe into this thrilling world, Anantara The Marker has curated a customisable Wild Swimming package to promote the many benefits of this refreshing and invigorating activity.

After choosing their preferred swimming spot, guests will set off in a private hotel car accompanied by the hotel’s Wild Swimming Guru, Jessica Lamb, to enjoy a two-hour swimming safari where they can take in stunning views of the cliffs, lush kelp forests and the shimmering bay lined with bobbing fishing boats. A marathon swimmer and Level 2 open water swimming coach, Jessica has spent the last 10 years immersed in Dublin Bay helping others experience the healing, grounding powers of the cold Irish Sea.

Having emerged from the sea, guests are met with restorative flasks of hot drinks including the option for a quintessential Irish Coffee and wrapped in snuggly dry robes from local Irish swimwear brand, Bear Hug.Back at the hotel, luxury abounds as guests can choose to enhance the experience with a private rooftop Breakfast by Design or a muscle-soothing massage at the award-winning Anantara Spa.

Depending on how comfortable they are with deep water, bathers can choose to picnic and swim either at Vico Bathing Place where they can float under the craggy rocks of Hawk Cliff as porpoises pop their heads above the swell; the iconic Forty Foot in Sandycove that featured in the opening scenes of James Joyce's Ulysses and hosts many an icy Christmas morning swim; or White Rock – a beautiful sugary-white sandy beach offering safe bathing for families who can be seen swimming among diving terns and cormorants.

Anchored by a vision of integrated wellness, I am keen on opening new avenues for wellness tourism where the hotel can achieve a balance by creating personalised experiences and adventures for our guests that have a direct, positive impact on their personal well-being Bodina Quereshi, Spa and Wellness Director at Anantara The Marker Dublin Hotel

“The new Wild Swimming package helps guests embrace a healthy lifestyle while travelling and I look forward to enhancing our current offering combining technology, science and holistic experiences to drive the vision and meet fast-evolving consumer expectations.”In addition to being a wonderful way to enjoy the outdoors and experience the beauty of nature, swimming in natural bodies of water offers numerous mental and physical benefits, such as boosting mood, immunity and circulation, as well as connecting people with nature and each other – a refreshingly different way to start the day whether guests are in town for leisure or business.

The Wild Swimming package is priced at €295 per person. For more information about Anantara The Marker Dublin Hotel, visit here. To book the Wild Swimming Package, email the team at spa.themarker@anantara-hotels.com.
