Hi there, and welcome to our #whileinside #stayathome Blog series! Wellness living and wellness travel is also about wellness for the planet. Under the banner of sustainability, more and more hotels, resorts and destinations are doing their part to save the world. We have learned through this Pandemic -Covid_19 that a healthy lifestyle in harmony with nature is the answer to strengthen our immune system and business structure. Green Sustainable Wellness is a natural approach to transform destinations, hotels, communities, and homes creating a sustainable model of growth and caring for the environment.

Some of the things we talked about:

  1. When we talk about sustainability, in the tourism industry, are we talking about the hotel – destination operations?- The community? The natural Resources? or all the above? are there any conflicts? 
  2. How the concept/approach of healing landscapes can incorporate nature and human infrastructure (buildings etc) in a proposition that actually has healing properties on guests? this is a landscaping+architectural angle.
  3. What does it mean to expand sustainability beyond the product? and what is the product? (The service, the location, the local producers- organic sources).
  4. Do you have practical examples of how sustainability has changed for the good of the business, community, and natural environment? Is there an overlap or relationship between ecotourism and wellness tourism- are they related? Competing? married or in a harmonious relationship?
  5. Can a model of sustainable – green – wellness help us reshape – create a stronger travel and tourism industry- a business model that will recuperate faster than the current predictions?
