"Like all spas, we experienced layoffs and closures at the beginning of the outbreak of the pandemic. Once we got the state-mandated go-ahead to re-open, our goal was to continue with our plans for opening our new spas, while getting out current properties and staff up to speed on our new ISM Covid-19 protocols that follow current CDC/WHO guidelines," said Ilana Alberico, CEO and Co-founder of ISM Spa. "We are blessed to work with so many wonderful developers and owners who trust us to operate their spa business."

ISM Branded Spa Concepts include Poseidon, Privai Wellness Spas, and R+R Wellness is a new brand concept envisioned by ISM co-founders Alberico and Christina Stratton, Chief Creative Officer.

"Every single design element of R + R Wellness is intentionally inspired for the ultimate sensory experience," said Stratton. "From the moment the guest enters the spa, we engage each of the five senses utilizing natural elements of earth, fire, water, wood, and metal to set the tone for the ultimate relaxation experience. We envelop the senses with aromatherapy personalized for well-being and balance while engaging the mind in our one-of-a-kind guided meditation experience lounges."

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
