Wild Dunes Resort, A Destination Hotel, is expanded its existing oceanfront meeting destination on the Isle of Palms, just 30 minutes outside of historic downtown Charleston. Opening in early 2021, the highly anticipated project will add a new 153-room hotel bringing the total to 400 guestrooms and suites, in addition to the existing 240 vacation rental homes and condos. The new, multi-faceted meeting and event space includes a grand ballroom with pre-function space and rooftop ballroom and event terrace with 270-degree panoramic ocean views, now allowing the resort to welcome groups of up to 650 attendees.

With the new event space doubling the Resort's function space, the new Wild Dunes hotel will be a haven for meetings, groups and wedding parties to experience the ultimate Charleston retreat. Wild Dunes Resort's expansion will also include a 14-treatment room destination spa, state-of-the-art fitness center and dedicated arrival experience and welcome center.

"The new hotel will further enhance Wild Dunes Resort's reputation as Charleston's beloved barrier island resort," said Frank Fredericks, managing director at Wild Dunes Resort. "With more meeting space than other hotels and resorts in the Charleston area (more than any other?), we give large groups, meetings and wedding parties the chance to experience a Charleston getaway that simply wasn't available before."

Hotel Spa: Pursuing Distinction

The Wellness Movement continues to evolve and hotel spas continue to innovate in order to keep pace. Fueled by intense competition within the industry, hotel spas are seeking creative ways to differentiate themselves in the market. An increasing number of customers are searching for very specific, niche treatments that address their particular health concerns and, as a result, some leading spas have achieved distinction by offering only one specialized treatment. Meditation and mindfulness practices are becoming increasingly mainstream as are alternative treatments and therapies, such as Ayurvedic therapies, Reiki, energy work and salt therapy. Some spas specialize in stress management and offer lifestyle coaching sessions as part of their program. Other spas are fully embracing new technologies as a way to differentiate themselves, such as providing wearable devices that track health and fitness biomarkers, or robots programmed with artificial intelligence to control spa environments, or virtual reality add-ons that transport guests to relaxing places around the world. Some spas have chosen to specialize in medical procedures such as liposuction, laser skin therapy, phototherapy facials, Botox and facial fillers, acupuncture and permanent hair removal, in addition to cosmetic body shaping procedures and teeth whitening treatments. Similarly, other spas are offering comprehensive health check-ups and counseling services for those who are interested in disease prevention treatments. Finally, as hotel spas continue to become more diverse, accessible and specialized, there is a growing demand for health professionals with a specific area of expertise. There is a proliferation of top class, quality wellness practitioners who make a name for themselves by offering their services around the globe, including athletes, chefs, doctors, physical trainers and weight loss specialists. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
