Out of the ten Instagram influencers brought to Sunrise Springs Spa Resort for this event: one person had not heard of Sunrise Springs before, six people had never been to Sunrise Springs before, and none of the ten people had stayed overnight at Sunrise Springs before.
This experience was based on Sunrise Springs Spa Resort’s Sunrise Spa Cleanse all-inclusive package. Each Instagram influencer was given a personalized itinerary of experiential activities to attend during their staycation. Examples of these activities included: a sweat lodge session, a class on the cleansing qualities of Ayurvedic herbs, an Ojitos tub soaking experience, a CBD massage therapy treatment, a private session with animal communicator Claudia Mardel, and more!
Executive Chef Rocky Durham prepared a raw vegan menu for our influencers to enjoy during their staycation.
