The 2020 Awards, curated by BLLA and StayBoutique, mark the tenth iteration of this annual celebration of the year's most daring efforts in the boutique community with projects that extend the limits of what our sector can do. All winners will have taken risks to achieve great success for what they whole-heartedly believe in, and that their Award submissions provide moments that define a cultural experience for their designs and spaces. Curating a boutique lifestyle is about the desire for discovery and the winners will be prime examples of this.

The Award nominations officially open March 4, 2020 at 8am Pacific Standard Time and will officially close to further submissions at midnight Pacific Standard Time on April 10, 2020. Nominations will then be sent to the official Judges for review. A celebration of the Winners will be held on June 4th in New York which follows the organization's Boutique Hotel Investment Conference held the day prior.

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.
