Best in Wellness

  • Best in Wellness

    The Best in Wellness award will recognise and reward the organization (including country, region or city/town) delivering an inspiring wellness initiative. The judges will be looking at those that have spent time supporting and promoting wellness, through imaginative marketing and PR campaigns, as well as offering a consistently unique and memorable experience for visitors.

    The WTA define Wellness Tourism as a specific division of the global tourism industry that is defined by the common goal of marketing natural assets and activities primarily focused on serving the Wellness Traveler and those who want to be.

    It’s a wide, umbrella-like travel category that spans destinations and programs that focus on the physical, mental, social, spiritual and environmental wellness of travellers.

    As “wellness” invades all tourism concepts, it not only includes destination spa and wellness resorts/retreats, but everything from mainstream hotels/hotel brands putting a new focus on wellness; hot springs destinations; cruises; medical-wellness concepts; yoga, fitness, meditation retreats – and tourism organisations that are developing and promoting their unique wellness resources to attract the new wave of consumers seeking health-focused wellness vacations plus those looking to implement wellness activities, services and amenities into any travel whether it be for business or pleasure.

  • Who can enter?

    Any tourism organization (including country, regional or city/town levels) delivering an inspiring wellness initiative promoting both overall experiences and individual programs. Individual hotels, resorts and retreats (with or without spas) with innovative wellness programs are also open to apply.
