Some hoteliers splash out on state-of-the-art hydro-pools and other high-end facilities, but many of your best wellness assets are free. Plenty of hotels don’t have a hydro-pool but are near lakes, rivers, or the sea. Water is a key element of wellness and if you have access to it, encourage your guests to pay attention to its beauty. The way the light shifts on its surface; the lulling movement and sound of its ripples and waves; the health benefits of bracing sea air and cold-water swimming.
You can do the same with other environments. Forest Bathing for example, or Shinrin Yoku to the Japanese, is a form of environmental immersion. Participants spend time in forests within a state of silent meditation, breathing in immune boosting phytoncides released by the trees.
