1 min

As a world leader in the hospitality industry, Accor knows that its offerings must be diverse and well-rounded to stay ahead of the curve and appeal to the changing needs of the increasingly discerning guest. 

To ensure a standout wellness experience that will be remembered long after check-out, Accor’s health and wellness platform is grounded in six core pillars – nutrition, holistic design, movement, spa, mindfulness and digital presence. This approach has proven successful as Accor and its brands have already garnered a number of prestigious wellness awards in the first half of 2022. 

Physical, emotional and mental well-being are now widely recognized as contributing to a higher quality of life, and for hotels, this must permeate the entire guest experience. We are pleased to see that our innovative wellness concepts, which all take a more holistic approach, are receiving global recognition from both guests and industry experts
