Spa and Wellness Travel Trends on the Rise

The Affluent Traveler Collection (ATC) recently turned to its membership of luxury travel advisors for answers on the latest spa and wellness travel trends. Based on input received from a survey, the results provide insight on what the demand for spa and wellness vacations are and what today’s luxury traveler looks for when booking one. The following trends were reported:

o The majority of Affluent Traveler Collection travel advisors surveyed are seeing a rise in the demand for spa and wellness vacations in 2013 versus the same time last year.
o Healthy meal choices, in-depth spa treatment menus, a fitness center and on-site yoga and/or pilates classes are the top priorities of travelers seeking a wellness vacation. Options such as nutrition classes, personal training and outdoor activities are in less demand.
o The USA and The Caribbean are amongst the most popular destinations for spa and wellness getaways
o The average spa and wellness vacation lasts 4-7 nights, with clients opting to experience spa vacations most often with their significant other versus friends.
