Recovery at Fairmont Claremont
Over the years, the iconic Claremont Club & Spa has built a cherished reputation for its luxury accommodations, beautiful views of the San Francisco Bay, world class gym, and pampering spa services. The property has continued to build upon its magnificent 100+ year history with nearly $50 million in renovations since its rebranding as a Fairmont by Accor Hotels. Last year, The Claremont Club once again raised its offering in wellness in the form of a new Aktiv Recovery Lounge designed by FitnessDesignGroup and powered by Hyperice performance technology.
“The importance of wellness within hospitality continues to accelerate as guests increasingly realize that ‘Health is ‘Wealth’ and demand more authentic and holistic experiences. The prestigious Claremont Resort & Spa is a blueprint for exercise experience across hospitality globally and now includes a new battery of modalities in rejuvenation and recovery,” said Emlyn Brown, Global Vice President, Well-Being for Accor Hotels.
The space features GYM RAX® personal recovery bays, each providing digital guidance via its partnership with Xponential Fitness and a wide array of recovery-based equipment designed to complement pre and post training sessions. The new space was developed to enhance the guest experience and now creates a bridge between the intensity of gym training sessions and the Claremont’s most coveted Spa services.
The new lounge design was in keeping with the property’s mandate of bright, airy interior space, much with panoramic picture windows across the hotel’s sprawling architectural footprint. The Fairmont’s continuing improvements have been substantial.

This new space serves to both invite and guide one towards the benefits of active recovery. “The feedback has been outstanding,” said Kevin MacDonald, Director of Club & Spa. “We appreciate our ongoing partnership with Aktiv & Hyperice, together they have truly created a fantastic system to smartly program our offering in recovery.”
