looking for socialising and shared experiences are now actively seeking socially distanced, personal and health-benefit-driven experiences. We will see intensified cleaning protocols, liability waivers for everyone entering the spa, one-way traffic to minimise anxiety around passing in tight corridors, touch-free sanitising stations and UVC air purifiers being made a part of existing HVAC systems. There will also be an increase in touchless therapies, so self-service areas, such as saunas or halotherapy (salt) rooms will be attractive to spa guests. Spas may either require fewer but larger thermal rooms, made from easy-to-clean materials, or they will offer a greater number of smaller, unique thermal areas to guarantee social distancing, with the option of private, sole usage for guests. Trust and communication are key. It is more important than ever before to create spas that are safe and reliable, rather than just stunningly designed. 70

Guests are looking for spaces they can rest in without fear or concern. This leads us to your Spa en Suite concept. Please tell us about that. Spa en Suite is a new concept that gives hotels the opportunity to add additional value to their existing offer. Anticipating guests’ increased desire to spend more time away from large groups, Spa en Suite offers hotels the option to modify their room layouts for multi-functionality, enabling guests to enjoy in-room wellness as a personal option that is always available.

Wellness-focused amenities can easily be personalised and delivered according to individual preferences. These include space-saving saunas, such as our Sauna S1, which can be incorporated in bathrooms or living areas, or balcony whirlpools and experience showers. Existing guest rooms can also be transformed into wellness suites that could be booked separately. Each Spa en Suite can be configured to the individual hotel’s preference and this taps into the increasing trend for exclusivity and privacy.
