USA, Los Angeles, California. January 24, 2019

BLLA (Boutique & Lifestyle Leaders Association) and Stay Boutique are excited to announce the winners of the 2019 Stay Boutique Awards!

The categories include everything from Best Boutique & Lifestyle Hotel to Best Boutique Thought Leader, all of which are listed below. The highlight of the Awards is the celebratory dinner which takes place the evening of the Leadership Conference, currently scheduled for Tuesday, February 12th at Magic Box @ The Reef in downtown Los Angeles.

Commenting on the 2019 Awards, Frances Kiradjian, founder and CEO of BLLA stated: "Winning a Stay Boutique Award is 'like winning an Oscar,' as quoted by a past Hotelier when winning Boutique Hotelier of the Year. BLLA created this Award back in 2010 in order to recognize the best of the best in our industry. We all work hard every day and it's so important and honorable to be recognized for those efforts. I wish more people and companies would take the time to submit to these Awards. It could change the course of someone's life or business, even if for just a moment in time."

The nominations for the Awards Edition are separated into three different categories: Boutique Concepts, Boutique Projects, and Boutique Minds. Within these categories are sub-categories, where nominations for any boutique project, person, or concept took place.

Hotel Spa: Back to Nature

As the Wellness Industry continues to expand, hotel spas are also diversifying, placing a greater emphasis on overall well-being. For some spas, this means providing clients with all-inclusive packages that include fitness classes, healthy dining, and offsite leisure activities, in addition to their core services. For example, spas near ski resorts are offering packages that include lift passes, pre-ski yoga sessions, after-ski dinners and spa treatments. Other spas are offering packages that include massages, saunas, mineral baths, hot springs, and recreational hiking and snowmobile activities. These kinds of spa offerings are also part of a "Back to Nature" movement that encourages guests to get out and experience the healing qualities of nature. One such therapy is the Japanese practice known as "forest bathing" which has become popular with spas that are near wooded areas. This practice relies on the ancient power of a forest for promoting a sense of health and well-being. Other spas are incorporating precious metals and stones into their health and beauty treatments - such as silver, gold, pearls and amber. Silver ion baths relax the body and mind, reduce fatigue, and restore energy balance. Gold keeps skin radiant and can even treat various skin diseases and infections, due to its antibacterial qualities. Amber is used to calm the nervous system and to relieve stress. Other natural products and therapies that are increasingly in demand include sound therapy, cryotherapy, infra-red saunas, and even CBD oil, which is being used in massages, facials and foot scrubs, providing a new form of stress relief. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document these trends and other new developments, and report on how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
