As consumers invested in the role of wellness and wellbeing in their day-to-day lives, 2017 became the year that wellness hospitality transformed the travel market.
In London, Corinthia Hotel went beyond the typical spa and gym offering with its year-long residency with neuroscientist Dr Tara Swart. Its Brain Power Residential Package included a Brain Power menu that comprised food that boosts cognitive function, while one-to-one sessions trained guests how to improve their brain health.
Hotels also worked to offer more personalisation in their rooms to help guests achieve optimal wellbeing. In collaboration with Wallpaper* magazine, Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts launched its Vitality Room, which features a wellbeing wall that offers guests personalised workouts, a high-performance air-purification system and programmable lighting to help overcome jet lag. The hotel room is designed to aid guests in maintaining their physical and mental health while away from home.
