Wellness with impact

22 January 2019
Wellness-Hotels & Resorts encourages sustainable spa breaks.

The popularity of New Year’s resolutions shows just how strong society’s desire for change is. This is also reflected in the Wellness-Trends surveys1 over the past few years. Spa breaks are taken more often in order to improve health and reduce stress. All of us start with good intentions, but it does not take too long before many of us are back to our usual routines. After all, it is challenging to establish a new lifestyle and focus on new goals in the confines of our everyday lives.

Focus on sustainability

Quick fixes with short-term results are a thing of the past. There is now a demand for sustainable spa breaks that have a noticeable impact on everyday life. The cooperation’s partner hoteliers reflect this need through new holistic concepts; giving guests an overall more sustainable result. Guests learn how to listen to their inner-selves and appreciate their needs. Additionally, they will practice relaxation techniques that can easily be implemented into their everyday lives. The way to reach these goals is as varied as each guest’s expectations. Yoga retreats, coaching or forest bathing help guests experience a relaxing break, which can be put into practice once they return home.

Be well and enjoy

Being healthy is a trend and wellness is a lifestyle concept that can lead to good health. This concept is different for everyone. “If people decide to follow a healthy lifestyle concept, we would like to offer support and encouragement. A balanced life often equals happiness, which is the foundation for long- lasting contentment”, says Michael Altewischer, managing director of Wellness-Hotels & Resorts. “Wellness hotels offer a well-founded concept to help guests find a more balanced life. Thereby, sustainability represents an essential element. Wellness creates a positive attitude that can benefit daily life in the long term.” Different to general perception, the term wellness means much more than just wellbeing and relaxation. It represents an awareness of the mind, body and soul and for actively taking responsibility for our goals in order to achieve a holistic lifestyle. The Wellness-Hotels & Resorts cooperation has become a pioneer for a variety of different concepts and puts its focus within the wellness industry. Thus, it is important to see that the journey is a destination with a focus on improving health and having a better attitude towards life.
