How the Hospitality Industry Can Merge Wellness with Tech

How the Hospitality Industry Can Merge Wellness with Tech

Learn how your hotel can leverage technology to offer guests the wellness amenities they expect.

In recent years, the wellness industry has exploded, infiltrating almost every business in some aspect. This is certainly true for the hospitality sector, as hotels across the country have been thinking of new ways to incorporate this wellness revolution into their amenity offerings. One way that hotels can leverage the power of this movement is by integrating new technology into their properties. Here are some of the new tech innovations that prioritize guest well-being.

Biophilic Design

Biophilic design operates on the concept that humans are at their best when connected to nature. With this principle in mind, biophilic design looks to blur the divide between indoor and outdoor spaces. Many hotels are using design elements that incorporate the sight, sounds, and atmosphere of nature into their properties. Tech innovations have allowed hotels to bring planting systems, water elements, and even entire living ecosystems inside their walls. These natural elements are meant to transform previously static hotel spaces, elevate their guests’ moods, and support their well-being.


Lighting design isn’t a new concept in the hospitality world; however, technological innovations introduce wider control over the temperature and color of incorporated lighting. As lighting can be used to aid a guest’s circadian rhythms and heighten feelings of relaxation, offering guests the ability to change the lighting in their rooms is just another way to place their well-being first.


Personal fitness is one of the cornerstones of the wellness revolution. Hotels are taking advantage of this new interest by offering their guests more in-room fitness experiences. From on-demand fitness routines streamed through in-room television sets to partnerships with major fitness centers and gurus, hotels can offer a wider array of options for fitness-oriented guests.

These are some of the ways in which hotels can leverage the power of the wellness revolution through the use of technological innovations.  Interested in learning more about the new trends sweeping through the hospitality industry?
