The Importance of a Seasonal Programming Refresh

Many associate spring with a new beginning; a time to organize, cleanse and rejuvenate their surroundings, and oftentimes themselves. It's not always easy to create a brand new menu of wellness and spa services with each season, but in this case the effort is worth the reward. It's essential to work with your guests to understand their spring wellness goals, and create retreat programming that caters to these interests. 

By updating your offerings each season, you are staying up to date with trending wellness services, while also providing innovative treatments that match the nuances of the current season. Spring retreat programming not only boosts guests' interest, but also generates seasonal income and new customer growth.
