Hotels today have to consider how every reference point in the guest journey has the potential to impact the pillars of guest wellness: diet, exercise, sleep, air quality, light, temperature, and mental wellness.
Start offering your quests a holistic and healing lifestyle, with the most exclusive, authentic, and whole-person orientated Hotel. Guest are looking for new experiences in new alternative unique environments, specialized programs, and customized approaches that support and embrace enhanced health, happiness, and balance in their lives.
The wellbeing services, holistic treatments, alternative medicine, yoga, physical and mindfulness exercises offered should be part of your Hotel and Resorts’s full commitment to their personal needs.

Adding spices has always been a great way to flavor food without adding calories and to increase your intake of antioxidants.
But more recently, inflammation and chronic stress have become so popular and talked about, so naturally, ways to remedy that have become popular, too.

The best way for your Hotel to manage stress is to learn healthy coping strategies. You can start practicing some simple techniques right away. Practice these techniques until they become habits you turn to when you feel stress.
- Listening to music
- Playing with a pet
- Laughing or crying
- Going out with a friend (shopping, movie, dining)
- Taking a bath or shower
- Writing, painting, or doing other creative activities
There’s growing awareness that by renewing our relationship with sleep, we can take control of our lives, live more fully, be more engaged with the world and be better equipped to meet the challenges we all face.
Today we see Hotels that offer sleep vacations with sleep experts on staff and 24-hour sleep concierge.
Hotels are doing everything in their power to ensure a good night’s sleep for their guests.

Internet of Things (IoT) devices such as fitness trackers, skin sensors, cardiac monitors, and glucometers have created a thriving industry that not only puts people in control of their vital health metrics but also enables them to engage with healthcare providers in new ways.
Most of these physical devices work with mobile software apps that add additional levels of insight.

Social Media, New Media, and Smart Devices have transformed Hotel guests into people that share high pixel visual images, video, and Live experiences with their Social Community.
Hotels should provide new unique reference points that inspire experiences that utilize sound healing, visualization, scent, and are sealed with an elixir.

Many Hotels have found that to maintain a viable community, they need to adapt to meet the changing needs of today’s busy society.
