Gone are the days when vacations were merely about sightseeing and indulgence. Over recent years, the tourism industry has witnessed a profound transformation, with wellness now at the forefront of travel trends. 

According to the Global Wellness Institute, this trend has emerged as a result of so much “unwellness embedded in today’s travel”. As such, wellness tourism brings the promise of combating those negative qualities and turning travel into an opportunity to maintain and improve our holistic health.

Increasingly, today's discerning travellers are seeking experiences that not only nurture their health and wellbeing but that truly recharge them. Reflecting a growing awareness of the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, even while away from home, wellness tourism is not just a fleeting trend; it's a movement towards a more mindful and rejuvenating way of being all year round.

The Holistic Approach: Combining Traditional and Modern Therapies

The world over, travellers are increasingly looking for experiences that blend traditional practices like yoga and meditation with modern scientific advancements like mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy or ‘mHBOT’ technology. This potent combination allows for a comprehensive and elevated wellness experience, catering to both the body and the mind. And resorts and retreats are responding, with many now offering packages that include a variety of science-backed modalities, tailored to the individual needs of their guests. 

According to world-leading hotel group Accor, the global market for wellness tourism is expected to reach $1.2 trillion by 2027, with destination accommodation increasingly playing a role in helping guests age gracefully by fusing technology with traditional wellness practices. Many resorts are now striving to offer a sanctuary where health and luxury coalesce, providing an environment where guests can not only relax and escape but also improve their overall wellbeing. 

A Breath of Fresh Air in Wellness Tourism

Standing out for its unique benefits and innovative approach, the integration of Oxygen Wellness Technology into luxury wellness resorts signifies a new era in wellness travel. No longer an add-on, but a central feature of many high-end wellness packages, mHBOT technology is attracting those who seek cutting-edge health benefits on their travels.

By incorporating advanced therapies like the mHBOT, luxury wellness resorts like Pnoé Breathing Life, COMO Shambhala, and Oya, are at the forefront of a wellness revolution, offering experiences that cater to both the body and the soul. Let’s find out more.
