Hotel Spas and Revenue Management


This month, we would like to share some articles dealing with spas’ day-to-day operations and revenue/profit strategies. We would like to kick off this series with a post where we will take a look at the benefits that hoteliers can perceive if they add their spas to their revenue management system.

In order to do this, we are going to share some of the insights that Patrick Landman, CEO of Xotels and hotel management expert, shared on a very interesting article published in Tnooz, the global provider of content to the travel, tourism and hospitality industry. Although a challenging issue, the hotel industry needs to change the way it has been operating its spa facilities. Let’ see why.


Hotel Spas in the Current Economic Downturn


The financial crisis that hit the world in 2008 has affected all industries across the globe. The spa industry has also suffered the negative effects due to this global downturn. This week, we are offering a general outlook of the way hotel spas have been affected by this crisis and the emerging signs of recovery the industry has recently experienced.

In order to do this, we are taking as a source of inspiration an article from published by Andrea Foster, Vice President for PKF Consulting USA, offering interesting insights about the current state of hotel spas. The article is based on the survey PKF Hospitality Research, Trends in the Hotel Industry.
