THESE days, people want more from their travels than new sights and sensations. Often, they also want to improve their lives and their health.
What travelers want
According to a recent survey conducted by a leading travel marketing organization whose focus is on the affluent market, the following health and wellness trends were identified: dining options, in-depth spa treatment menus and amenities such as yoga and Pilates. Options such as nutrition classes, personal training and outdoor activities are less in demand.
• The U.S.A. and the Caribbean are among the most popular destinations for spa and wellness getaways.
• The average spa and wellness vacation lasts four to seven nights.
• More spa travel is with a significant other than with friends.
• Many people are traveling to spots where they offer more healthful meal options.
