How can spas adapt their strategy for different markets?

 

Xinalani Eco-Yoga Resort offers sun, sand and spa in addition to jungle, yoga and gourmet food! Located a short boat ride away from Puerto Vallarta, it’s small enough to offer personalized service from the moment you arrive. Xinalani blends into the natural landscape of jungle and beach that envelop the grounds, with 23 open-air thatched-roof guest rooms. Built into the jungle mountain, your adventure starts on the private beach with an infinity pool, snorkeling and kayaking right at your toes. Enjoy flow yoga classes each morning in one of three ocean-view studios. Wellness activities include jungle treks or swimming with wild dolphins, or resting and relaxing on the beach under a shaded lounge chair. The cuisine at Xinalani includes a plentiful selection of local fresh produce and salads with a daily blend of aguas frescas made from the fruit of the nearby trees.

 

Hard Rock resorts offer a unique concept to guests looking for an all inclusive resort experience with a difference. Music is, of course, the central theme around the resort bars, lounges and restaurants and the Rock Spa is no exception. Memorabilia from the likes of Madonna adorn the walls amidst art installations made of musical instruments including a hanging fountain styled from organ pipes.

 

Arriving at the stunning JW Marriot Los Cabos Beach Resort & Spa, guests are bestowed with spectacular views of the sparkling blue ocean visible through the open-air lobby. The spacious resort creates an impressive ambience via the roof gardens, art sculptures, courtyards, ‘water mirror’ reflection pools and large swimming pools. Sitting in many of the fine-dining, restaurant options affords you with a view of the ocean where you can watch for whales if you’re there at the right time of year.

Montage Los Cabos is one of the newest luxury resorts to enter the region; having opened its doors late summer 2018. Nestled between stunning cliffs that encircle Santa Maria Bay, the beach at Montage boasts clear and calm waters, perfect for swimming and snorkeling. Located on the corridor between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, it’s well positioned for guests to visit either of these destination towns during their stay.

Well Fashion – Way Beyond Athleisure
A new era of sustainable, ethical, intelligent, healing, more inclusive and meaningful clothing is on the rise.

 

The greedy, throwaway fashion machine has a disastrous impact on the environment and humans: the waste, the pollution and the garment workers (mostly women). Less than 1% of clothing material is ever recycled. This model creates a staggering 1.2 billion tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually and dumps 20% of all global wastewater.

Celebrating its first-year anniversary, and following the release of its first survey on Wellness Vacations, the Wellness Tourism Association (WTA) polled its members to find out the top wellness travel trends for 2019.
