Global consortium of holistic hotels, resorts and retreats Healing Hotels of the World
has unveiled a new certification to help its member hotels communicate their commitment to healing, not only through their holistic programming but also by conforming to COVID safety regulations.
Called the Healing Certificate, the accreditation is designed to cater to the new demand for healing travel for guests wanting to recover from the trauma of living in a COVID-battered world.
Healing Hotels has developed the certification in order to help its hotel guests determine which healing experiences are most suitable for their needs and desires during the recovery period.
Member hotels must fulfil the COVID safety measures relevant to their region, with guidance from the World Health Organization, and also offer an authentic programme of holistic wellbeing packages to create healing havens for body, mind and soul.
A host of Healing Hotels’ member destinations have already rolled out programming specifically designed to help people heal from the past year’s trauma including Rancho La Puerta in Mexico, Forestis in Italy and Euphoria Retreat in Greece.
Healing Hotels believes this new certification allows member hotels to effectively communicate their wide-reaching healing advantage.
“We know spending time at one of these special destinations will help guests find a release from the stress we’ve all experienced over this past year, and provide a new sense of peace and vitality,” remarked Anne Biging, Healing Hotels co-founder.
She told Spa Business
that: “As leaders in healing hospitality, it’s our responsibility to cater to this new demand. This certification was introduced to provide a source of trust and reassurance for travellers who are health-conscious.”
The Healing Certification will be awarded in both the Resort and Urban Healing Hotels of the World collections.
