All-Inclusive Alert: With resort-within-a-resort features, premier dining options, and a focus on health and well-being, an all-inclusive property may very well be your next group event antidote!
Below are 5 trends captured by Successful that have transformed All-Inclusive Resorts:
1. Competition has led to upgrades in facilities and service. Event attendees can expect a higher quality of service, better restaurants, quality of amenities, a lovelier resort, expanded concierge services – all at a reasonable price point.
2. Demographic shifts have led to resorts catering to a diverse market, from couples and singles to multi-generation families, foodies, health and fitness devotees, honeymooners, active vacationers, millennials, weddings, and meetings and incentive groups.
3. Luxury travel creates a foundation for meetings and events. Don’t want your event participants reaching into their wallets for anything? Consider an all-inclusive destination! They include accommodations, meals, drinks, transfers, taxes, gratuities, entertainment, and the use, setup and breakdown of meeting rooms.
4. Many all-inclusive locations feature complete destination experiences! Groups enjoy everything from ancient Mayan rituals and cigar rolling to molecular multi-course meals. They also have a huge opportunity in developing countries to lend a helping hand in the local communities through voluntourism.
5. Wellness takes center stage. According to Spafinder Wellness 365’s annual “State of Wellness Travel Report,” 79 percent of respondents report that demand for healthier business meetings (those incorporating healthy food, fitness, and spa experiences) is rising. Guests can expect the most sought-after wellness aspects such as spa treatments in the heart of nature, healthy cuisine, fitness classes, environmental beauty , soaker tubs, special beds and sports activities.
