Four of ten luxury hotels now offering spas

The spa trend at luxury properties is clear with four out of ten  US properties under development now including that amenity, according to a study.

That compares with 27% of existing luxury and upper-upscale hotels offering spas, says the study from PricewaterhouseCoopers Research with information supplemented by Smith Travel Research and the International Spa Association.

The study found that 1.9% of all US hotel projects had spa facilities and services compared to 0.6% of all existing hotels.  Spas were found predominately in the luxury hotels.

“This is a dramatic trend reflecting the lifestyle appeal of hotels to an increasing number of business and leisure travelers,” said Bjorn Hanson, a principal with PricewaterhouseCoopers.
