The Wellness Travel Awards are the only awards that recognize the destination spas, hotels, resorts and retreats worldwide dedicated to offering experiences and environments that leave visitors healthier when they check out than when they checked in. Final winners will be selected by consumer vote, which is underway at Spafinder.com now through September 19; winners will be announced at the World Travel Market in London on November 6.
Ste. Anne’s Spa has been voted Favourite Spa in Canada for 8 consecutive years by SpaFinder Reader’s Choice. “Being nominated for a Wellness Travel Award is a unique honor that recognizes properties around the globe that offer exceptional wellness experiences,” said Spafinder Wellness 365 Chief Brand Officer Mia Kyricos. “People are redefining what they want when on vacation or traveling for business. We applaud these nominees that excel in meeting this rising demand.”
To ensure the most deserving properties were nominated, a global panel comprised of 26 spa and wellness industry journalists and experts nominated top candidates in each category. Candidates that received the most nominations are presented to consumers on Spafinder.com; voting is now underway for the final winners in each category.
Spafinder defines wellness travel “as vacations, getaways and business trips that help travelers stay (or get) well when traveling,” by offering distinct wellness-related programs and facilities – from stress reduction, nutrition and healing to state-of-the-art spas, fitness and wellness centers.
