It seems as if a new travel trend emerges every year.
From liberals insisting the rest of the world “go green” to the obnoxious “begpacking” trend where attention-starved “influencers” expect everyone else to fund their excursions – people are always coming up with new travel demands.
And the latest travel trend doesn’t involve hiking the tallest mountain or discovering a hidden gem – it simply revolves around sleeping.
Who pays money to go on vacation simply to sleep?
Apparently, a lot of folks.
In the heart of Manhattan, Park Hyatt New York does more than just offer stunning views of Central Park.
They’ve invested heavily into making sure guests have the ultimate “sleep experience” – and once they unveiled their new sleep suites – people were eager to try them out.
Conde Nast Traveler reported:
“The five-star hotel unveiled the suites in January 2022. The Bryte mattresses are the hallmark of them—each one has 90 intelligent cushions that sense, adjust to, and relieve the body’s pressure points.
The mattress also controls the climate, tracks and provides sleep statistics and insights that can be accessed on your phone, and is able to respond to the unique needs of couples.
Each one-bedroom suite is 900 square feet and has views of Central Park, a king-size bed, one-and-a-half baths, a separate living room, and sleep-enhancing amenities like a Vitruvi essential oils diffuser, Nollapelli Linens, sleeping masks, and a mini library of books that are all about sleep.”
Talk about sleeping in style!
While travelers used to simply want a clean room and no bed bugs…
… now the game has changed.
More and more hotels are hoping to cater to the ever-growing number of Americans who are serious about health and wellness.
But it’s not just Americans getting serious about their sleep.
All around the world hotels and resorts are competing to offer the best sleeping amenities.
The Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa located in Champagne, France (about 45 minutes from Paris) has jumped on the bandwagon.
In addition to luring foodies and wellness gurus – it now focuses on offering unprecedented sleeping accommodations.
Conde Nast Traveler continued:
“Within the past year, the hotel launched its Royal Sleep Experience. This new wellness program is a partnership with French beauty brand AIME.
Guests receive AIME products that promote quality sleep, such as calming essential oil sprays and melatonin-based drops that help to regenerate skin overnight.
In-room amenities of note include a meditation box, satin face mask, and candle massage.”
So if you thought getting a good night’s sleep meant scoring an extra blanket or pillow…
… or realizing you can use a pants hanger to keep your curtains closed tight – well you ain’t seen nothing yet!
Consider booking a stay at a hotel that offers the latest “sleep experience” and say hello to candle massages, temperature-controlled mattresses, and the best sleep of your life.
