Celebrated on June 10, Global Wellness Day highlights the importance of being healthy and living well. As wellness increasingly becomes a priority and daily lifestyle objective for more and more clients, we continue to strengthen our leading offerings in this strategic sector. Our platform spa.accor.com, recently launched in Europe, takes this one step further, enhancing the ALL - Accor Live Limitless digital experience with an online booking platform offering clients a wide range of wellness offers and services. The platform also drives business growth for our hotels, generating exciting opportunities and providing higher visibility for their wellness experiences.

The now trillion-dollar wellness market is flourishing with spectacular growth in a post-Covid context where consumers increasingly prioritize their health and wellbeing. According to McKinsey*, 79% of global consumers report that wellness is important, with 42% considering it a top priority. This reflects, as Sébastien Bazin, Accor’s Chairman and CEO has stated, a “deep and profound movement which is embedded in our way of living and daily consciousness.

Driving Business Growth and Capturing Opportunities for our Hotels


In addition to offering guests a best-in-class digital experience and easy access to unparalleled wellness experiences and offers, at the same time, the platform contributes to driving business growth for hotels, leveraging cross and upselling to generate additional revenue in line with evolving consumer needs and expectations, and diversifying their revenue streams by also creating engagement opportunities with local clients. Wellness has, without doubt, become a powerful business accelerator across all segments and geographies.

Drawing on the Group’s expertise and exceptional hotels, we will continue to innovate and personalize guest services, offers and experiences, with seamless digital customer experiences, that go far beyond accommodation to boost our vision of Augmented Hospitality, at the heart of our strategy. Wellness will play a key role in enriching this approach for both hotels and clients – when they travel and in their everyday lives.
