It is becoming increasingly clear that the spa industry is showing a dramatic growth over the last few years, and is one of the fastest growing leisure sectors, where social trends and objectives show in the development on both the demand and supply side.
Sophisticated and discerning spa-goers are very well informed and seem to research carefully the facilities, treatments and services, on offer before they even think of spending their money. The fast pace in life is a driving force behind the search for improved well-being.
The rapid expansion of spas in the Americas, Asia and the UK is showing the biggest growth in hotel spas and this seems set to continue, and hoteliers with vision have come to recognise the benefits that a spa can bring to the overall hotel product.
Spas fall into varying categories and each one targets a specific type of client, but as the market grows there is often overlap within the sectors. There are hotel spas, resort spas, destination spas, city centre hotel spas, and day spas.
The hotel spa is about an average stay of one to three nights, and spa breaks London are becoming so popular, especially for the business executive who is in London on business they can take advantage of all the treatments available. The corporate guests definitely take advantage of the spa facility, and the quality of which may significantly enhance their stay.
A city centre spa is an urban retreat and an oasis of distraction and calm within this manic fast moving world, and spas in London are increasingly sophisticated and chic, offering advanced all-inclusive treatments rather than trendy gimmicks.
London spas are ether a day spa or attached to a hotel, and the difference between a hotel spa and a day spar is the clientele. The urban day spa client is still predominantly female, but if the day spa client is excluded within a business hotel, at least 50% of hotel spa guests are male, and demand very high standards of all treatments, also businessmen clients of city spas are opting for the one-hour massage.
Many spas London offer a day spa within a residential facility, and go out of their way to ensure that the day spa clients feel totally appreciated and welcomed and more importantly given value for money.
If seeking out a session at a day spa London you will find that the spa will ensure all clients do not feel overcrowded or rushed, thus putting a strain on treatments, therapists, heat experiences and relaxation facilities. Of course day spa clients have a choice of a half day visit or a full day package, furthermore light lunchtime spa cuisine and light refreshments are usually offered at day spas.
A spokesman for Dolphin Square Spa located in The heart of Westminster said “we have specialists working at our spa that have created an authentic, accessible and affordable spa experience that is intended to encourage more people to enjoy the benefits of spa-going. The spa in Dolphin Square is our general manager’s vision, and he created the spa on his own experience in Hammam culture when visiting Marrakech, and we now have an authentic luxury Moroccan inspired spa in London”.
