Spas Which Look Beyond the Body and Engage the Mind with Soul-Inspiring Transformations

By Mark Grenoble President, Enchantment Group | July 24, 2016

One of the big shifts in the spa and wellness movement that I have seen over the past few years is in the mindset of the spa-goer. What used to be a singular spa experience to relax the body, release tension in the muscles, and perhaps elevate one’s physical appearance, has now transgressed into something deeper.

The spa experience is beginning to look beyond the physical body and instead, engage the mind. Spa-goers are seeking transformation focused not on changing who you are, but creating a more perfect version of yourself.

Part of the rapidly rising trend of experiential travel, spas are no longer just an added bonus to a vacation, they are the destination. Guests who travel to Mii amo aren’t just looking to leave feeling refreshed and physically enriched, but instead depart with a lifestyle adjustment and augmentation that they can take home with them. The goal isn’t to transform guests, but to guide them through a transformative experience.

Here at Mii amo, we offer much more than your typical massage and facial; we are a destination spa steeped in our surrounding Native American culture and offering our guests not only an experiential trip, but an inspirational one. We have award-winning therapists from all around the world that create an uplifting energy that leaves guests not only refreshed and renewed, but inspired and charismatic about an ongoing transformation that brings out the best in themselves.

In my opinion, there are four key pillars that define a mind-engaging and soul-inspiring spa experience. By creating a memorable journey, offering a sense of place, making mindfulness the key, and lastly, creating inspiration, we can offer spa-goers an experience that goes far beyond a physical change, to engage the mind and help them become the best version of themselves.

Food & Beverage: Millennials Rule

The Millennial Generation has surpassed the Baby Boomers to become the largest living generation in America, and their tastes and preferences are being reflected in the Food & Beverage industry. In general, Millennials insist on more natural, healthier, less-processed food and beverage sources, and in part, this inspired the farm-to-table movement. However, now the trend is becoming even more pronounced and hyper-local. Millennials no longer simply want to know their food is farm-to-table, they want to know which farm, and where it's located relative to the community. As a result, hotel F&B directors are redesigning entire menus to feature area brewers, wineries, and family farms. Not only is this a proven way to satisfy Millennial tastes but it also opens the door for hotel guests to enjoy immersive experiences such as tours and excursions to local farms and breweries. Also, thanks in no small part to Millennials, coffee consumption is at an all-time high. In response, F&B directors are creating innovative ways to enhance the coffee experience for guests. Nitro-brewed coffee, cold brew, lattes on draft, and the introduction of unique milk options are part of this trend, as are locally sourced coffee beans where available. Millennial influences can also be found in the Craft and Artisan Cocktail movement where the same preferences for locally sourced and high-quality ingredients apply. One leading hotel even offers a drink menu featuring liquors infused with herbs recommended by experts for their health and well-being benefits. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will document the trends and challenges in the food and beverage sector, and report on what some leading hotels are doing to enhance this area of their business.
