That way you can adapt and change as you see fit.
Hot Spring Getaways
People are starting to see water in a whole new light. There was a time when holidaying near water meant spending time on a beach or near a lake and participating in water sports. But now people are beginning to latch on to the idea that water can also be peaceful and restorative. As the number of companies that offer holidays to destinations such as the dead sea to take advantage of the water and clay which are both good for the skin, to retreats to hot springs that boast of really boosting the quality of the skin.
You, or someone you know, may well have been to a vineyard when on a holiday or because you live close to one and would, therefore, be able to attest to the excellent experience of being there and taking in the magnificence of producing wines. You would also be able to swear to how nice it is to be able to spend a day exploring all the different wines and the many flavour notes. Because of this, there are now a lot of luxury resorts that focus entirely on this. From tours of the vineyards of Bordeaux to exploring the Rioja region of Spain. This is definitely a trend from 2018 that we will see more of in 2019.
If you have ever watched Game of Thrones, then you will know that it is full of majestic and beautiful places that fall easily on the eye. But have you ever thought about going to those places? Go to Croatia to see the city of Meereen, Iceland to visit Castle Black and Spain to spend some time in Braavos. Of course, you can always go the other way and visit Highclere Castle in Highclere – Newbury, England, made famous by Downton Abbey. Whatever your preference of television series, this seems like a trending vacation definitely worth taking.
For those of you that are looking for a destination with a difference, TreeHotel seems like the perfect place to me. As we all get tired of the hustle and bustle of city life and look for a chance to get back to nature, this trend is definitely one worth exploring. The TreeHotel is Sweden is unique in its style and features. From a UFO treehouse to one that gives you the experience of staying in a human-sized birds nest. This gives you a treehouse experience with a twist.
An Artistic Twist
We all know that whenever you go to a hotel, no matter how many stars it might have been awarded or its location, they will have spent time and money deciding on the art that hangs on the walls. But did you know there are some that there has been a growing trend of hotels that offer a vacation that is infused with art itself? Banksy, the widely known and controversial artist, has spent a lot of time in the West Bank. He also opened his own hotel there, aptly called the Walled Off Hotel. His hotel puts an artistic twist on your visit to the Holyland by being situated practically on top of the Israeli security barrier.
That sums up my list of trends to look out for in the coming year. Hopefully, it will have inspired you to either see how you can use your local surroundings to your advantage if you are a hotelier. Or, if you are someone looking for a vacation with a little difference, then hopefully it has given you some hints on the sorts of vacations available to you. Whichever you are, 2019 seems set to serve up some real change in the travel industry, so get ready to explore.
