The global interest in wellness is rising exponentially, with the ever-increasing demand attributed to several factors. The general lifestyle of fast-paced lives and high-pressure jobs are resulting in chronic stress, anxiety, depression, and sleep problems. Now more than ever, people are more conscious of their mental and physical wellbeing.
In a market that is growing more than twice as much as tourism, it is about time that not only large hotel chains, but anyone working in the hotel and hospitality sector adapts to the need for wellness and incorporates quality fitness and wellness spaces within its structure.
When traveling, consumers are not just looking at holidays as an escape to relax, but they are also looking for ways to be able to maintain their daily routines in a more relaxed environment.
A big chunk of holiday expenses is usually allocated to hotels, therefore the emphasis of providing excellent wellness services should come from hotels. For hoteliers who are willing to adapt to the wellness needs of the market, this serves as an opportunity to attract new guests and retain repeat customers.
In fact, a consumer survey by the World Tourism Association revealed that 78% of respondents indicated they already include wellness-specific activities in their itineraries when travelling.
It’s no longer just about having a pool and basic gym amenities, it’s about being able to adapt to the needs of different kinds of travelers, whether it’s their preferences of online trainings, working out in their hotel bedrooms, or being able to sync wearables with gym equipment.
