Honey – the Super Local SuperFood

Named one of the 24 SuperFoods, fresh honey is produced onsite at several Westin properties and incorporated into property products, services and food.
Honey – the Super Local SuperFood

If sourcing local, environmentally friendly and sustainable food is on your list of must-haves for your next weekend away, look no further than The Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa, The Westin Annapolis, The Westin Harbour Castle, Toronto, or Westin Paris-Vendôme. All four properties proudly feature on-property honeybee apiaries.

Working closely with a master beekeeper, resort associates trained as beekeepers to manage honey harvesting and conduct tours of the apiary at The Westin Mission Hills. Guests looking for a one-of-a-kind experience can suit up in a beekeeper suit to get up close and personal with the 60-80,000 bees living onsite.


It’s no surprise that Westin has incorporated honey into guest amenities – it has been named one of the twenty-four Superfoods by SuperfoodsRX due to its bevy of health benefits. The harvested honey at The Westin Mission Hills and The Westin Annapolis are included in several dishes onsite including honey lacquered hot smoked salmon and old bay honey cashew brittle. Going a step further, the Six Senses Spa at The Westin Paris-Vendôme features honey-based facial treatments.


Utilizing the world’s most industrious creatures not only provides guests with unique experiences, it also helps support the earth’s ecosystem. Apiaries also serve as a haven for a globally depleted honey bee population, the cause of which is as yet unknown. So after enjoying a tour of the apiary, wind down with a honey-laden dish and know that not only are you doing your body good, you're also helping support the local environment.
