Mixed Spa Areas

It is about time spa operators started looking at what people want. In the day and age of gender-neutral toilets, why does visiting a spa has to be gender segregated in countries where religion does not dictate otherwise? With many aspects of modern life encouraging inclusiveness, why are we still so entrenched in the belief that a couple visiting a spa together want to enjoy a sauna, steam room and other hydrotherapy facilities separately? Agreed, there are some people who do prefer to use these facilities in private, but the vast majority of people want to be together, particularly if a spa visit is to be a group social event or part of a vacation.

The spa is located in the Dominican Republic. Our spa team’s primary language is Spanish and our guest’s primary language is English. As it pertains to retail sales, how can I bridge that language barrier into making home care recommendations to our guests? Our guests want expert therapists to personalize their experience but communication is necessary for this to occur.

Expert Panel Q&A with Sharon Sedgwick
