Wellness Trend is Here to Stay in 2012

Wellness Trend is Here to Stay in 2012 



How many of us start the year with a resolution to get healthier? Luckily, our research shows that for many consumers they stick with that for the entire year when it comes to their travel choices.

Consumers want their vacations to reflect a healthier lifestyle factor. While the timeshare industry has long advocated the healthful benefits of regular time away to rejuvenate and relax, resort developers continue to expand their vacation products with more options and access to healthful programs and activities.

Many timeshare resorts have expanded their offerings to include health and wellness components such as fitness programs, enhanced spa services, cuisine packages, weight-loss regimens and concierge services to customize a specific healthy vacation experience.

One example is the Wellness Center at Marriott’s Desert Springs Villas, offering classes ranging from yoga and Tai Chi to water fitness and shoulder and back strengthening.

And, according to Interval International, many of their clients’ properties in the Americas and the Caribbean have fitness centers and full-service spas, and those with restaurants are presenting healthier menu options. This increased consciousness of wellness is reflected in Interval’s most recent U.S. member profile. Reporting on their preferred vacation activities, nearly half of those surveyed include working out and exercising while close to 40 percent cite spa services.
