The importance of wellness

In our hectic and stressful world, it is essential to understand the meaning of wellness. This word goes far beyond the mere concept of relaxation. Wellness means consciously taking care of your body and mind, and finding the balance between relaxation and health. A spa holiday offers you the opportunity to leave stress and daily pressures behind and reconnect with your inner self.

The idea of wellness covers many aspects of life, from physical health and mental relaxation to spiritual balance. In a wellness hotel, you can take advantage of a variety of wellness offers, ranging from massages and spa treatments to yoga weekends, sauna and steam bath visits or whirlpool relaxation. These offers are designed to harmonise body and mind and give you the opportunity to leave your everyday life behind.

Wellness trends in German hotels

Wellness offerings are on the rise in German hotels, bringing fresh, innovative ideas to the world of rest and relaxation. The country's wellness hotels are striving to meet the needs of guests and are embracing progressive wellness trends to offer an unparalleled experience.

One trend that is emerging in German wellness hotels is the combination of health and sustainability. Guests are looking for wellness offers that not only serve their well-being, but also respect the environment. Sustainable wellness offers that incorporate environmentally friendly materials and practices are becoming increasingly common. Care is taken to ensure that not only the body, but also nature and the environment remain in balance.

The digital detox trend is another noteworthy aspect. In a world characterized by constant connectivity and digital distraction, guests are increasingly looking for hotels that offer a true retreat. Hotel Bornmühle, for example, places great emphasis on creating an atmosphere where you can put your electronic devices aside and focus on your own relaxation. Nature, the beauty of the surroundings and the distinct service concept serve as a distraction from the digital world.

Health and fitness are also very important in German wellness hotels. In addition to classic wellness treatments, more and more sports hotels are being established that offer a wide range of sporting activities. Yoga vacations, Pilates, cycling and hiking are just some of the ways to keep body and mind in shape. Wellness offers are no longer limited to massages and saunas, but offer a variety of activities for those who enjoy an active lifestyle.

Wellness cuisine has also taken on an important role in German wellness hotels. Healthy eating is not only part of the wellness offer, but also a lifestyle. In many hotels, including the Bornmühle, great importance is attached to a healthy, balanced diet. Fresh, high-quality food is processed into delicious dishes that not only delight the palate but also promote health. Regional and seasonal foods are of great importance here in order to minimize environmental impact and maximize taste.

Another wellness trend that is on the rise in German hotels is beauty treatments. Beauty treatments are not just limited to women. More and more men are recognizing the benefits of skin care and beauty treatments to help maintain a fresh and well-groomed appearance. Facials, manicures and pedicures are no longer just for women, but are part of the standard offer in many wellness hotels.

Planning and booking tips for the perfect wellness vacation

If you decide to book a wellness vacation, there are a few things you should consider. Choosing the right hotel and the right treatments is crucial. Most spa hotels offer a wide range of treatments, from massages and facials to wraps and baths. Before you book a treatment, get advice from the spa team based on your physical condition.

It is also advisable to book your spa massages before you arrive, as the shortage of specialists means that therapists in spa hotels are quickly booked up. On weekends and public holidays in particular, it is often difficult to get a free treatment at short notice.

If you have any intolerances or allergies, let the hotel know in good time before your arrival. It is also advisable to inform the hotel in advance of your dietary preferences (vegan, vegetarian) to avoid stressful situations at the hotel.

Wellness vacation at the best price: offers and discounts

Wellness vacations can be expensive, but there are ways to save money. Planning carefully in advance and taking advantage of offers and discounts can make your spa break more affordable. Look for offers and last-minute deals to make the most of your budget.

Booking directly through the hotel is often cheaper than booking through a portal. Cancellation policies are also fairer and the hotel is able to act more quickly in the event of inconsistencies without a third-party provider.

It can also be worth comparing prices according to the time of year and days of the week. Especially in the low season and during the week, wellness hotels often offer lower rates and promotions, such as 4=3 or similar. Overnight specials. Be sure to check the guidelines and cancellation conditions for these offers, as they often differ from the standard overnight rate.

It is also worth taking a look at the packages: sometimes the package prices are cheaper than a booking consisting of individually put together modules. However, promotions can also mean that a room booking with specially selected additional services is cheaper. It is always advisable to compare prices on the hotel's booking page.
