Benefits of adding a luxury spa at a resort:
Hoteliers and resort owners are adding luxury spas to their facility to create a competitive advantage. A spa facility at resorts is advantageous in:
- Bringing in more guests
- Enhancing guest experience
- Driving up the revenue, ADR and profitability
- Adding to the revenue stream
- Raising value of the property
Spas need to be managed strategically to prevent a loss. There is always ebb and fall in the demand. During the high demand period, guests are even denied low cost or low-profit spa treatments. As a result, the customers are disappointed. The resort management has to realize that spas are not just a value addition but can also generate income. During low demand period, competitive pricing techniques, discounts, couple offer, honeymoon package, gifts, referral coupons bring in more customers. The spa is treated as part of the revenue management policy.
Some of our findings on revenue management are listed below:
- Identifying the treatment that brings in more profit and which treatment generate the total spa income.
- Identifying the treatment that is least sold and the highest sold. Also checking out which day of the week, the demand is high.
- Sales follow-ups can get more clients. Offering gifts, discounts, accessories can add to the sales.
- Better cost management by reducing the time between two treatments and promote treatments that give higher profitability.
Predominantly, ayurvedic treatment not just focuses on therapy alone but also diet, lifestyle changes and embracing naturopathy.
