Healthy Hotels and Wellness Tourism

Healthy Hotels and Wellness Tourism

According to the Spa Finder Trend Report, Hotels in 2015 will be looking at health as a marketing differentiator. The healthy hotel will ultimately become more inspired and comprehensive and move from virtuous exception to part of the hospitality vernacular, because everyone, everywhere, now more than ever, needs travel that restores.

A recent Spafinder Wellness 365 consumer survey found that 85 percent of people have returned from a holiday less rejuvenated and than when they left. Travellers further report they now want a whole lot of “wellness” in their travel destinations: with a staggering 82 percent wanting spa/massage areas within the hotel.

Ensure you can deliver a Wellness Area that Exceeds Expectations

Many hotels are looking to either design or retro-fit a wellness or spa area to their buildings in order to get a stake of the burgeoning wellness tourism trade. A research report conducted by SRI International for the Global Spa & Wellness Summit (GSWS) recently found that wellness tourism already represents a US $439 billion market, and accounts for 14 percent of world tourism expenditures. With the growing demand for healthier travel of all breeds, this means this category will grow nine percent annually through 2017, which is a staggering 50 percent faster than regular tourism.

Hotels are starting to think beyond the gym, to fun classes and indoor wellness experiences. With this ethos they can create a halo of hipness around the property. This is a great local market revenue generator, attracting not only the high-spending wellness tourists but also the local population to the wellness area.

Hotels are turning the lonely, avoided gyms into a meaningful social activity and creating more memorable stays. All Carmenta Wellness Spas and Wellness Cabins are custom designed to suit any space so neither a brand-new design or retro-fit project pose a challenge.
