A Sustainable Wellness Hotel is in High Demand for Travelers
The phrase “sustainable wellness hotel” is a popular one in the luxury travel industry. An increasing number of hotels are trying to attract customers with this catch phrase. So what does sustainable wellness mean and what characteristics does a sustainable wellness hotel provide its guests?
Sustainably thinking and acting hotels take the upmost care and responsibility for the environment. They do this in a variety of ways. First, it can be in their selection of food and products or energy generation. Next, it is waste management, regional value creation or the support for social projects. Therefore, the ultimate goal is a holistic concept that blends the sustainable theme into all areas of the hotel. In addition, the hotel’s wellness and spa area are also included.
We want to share two sustainable wellness hotels that offer sustainability into their oases of relaxation and well-being. They deliver sustainability in a number of ways. Each finds their niche and discover how to implement their holistic concepts. These properties have a commitment to sustainability and closely work with partners who share our own values.
In Germany’s Black Forest, Beauty Lies in Nature
The Hotel Schwarzwald Panorama in Germany has implemented sustainable action across almost 100% of the value chain. In addition, it applies to the 850 square meter spa area. Guests can enjoy their mineral thermal swimming pool and saunas. The hotel’s spa team only uses natural cosmetics that are made from organic, plant-based ingredients. These are utilized in all spa treatments.
The goal is to strengthen the skin’s own natural processes and protect it from external influence. Schwarzwald Panorama features the Dr. Hauschka Skin Care treatment concept and offers selected medicinal plants. The spa’s facial and body treatments follow the Pharmos Natur method. In addition, the treatment uses a fresh aloe vera leaf and can be booked as a relaxing massage. Lastly, try a stimulating detox or anti-stress treatment.
