Emerging Travel Trends in 2023 | Ivana De Domenico

After almost two years of being confined to our home, the world opened up this year. We were finally able to explore new places and revisit old favorites. Whether we were planning on traveling across the globe or simply taking in a unique experience, this was a momentous year for us.

In 2023, travelers will be taking a step further in improving their experiences by positively impacting the people they meet and the places they visit. They’ll be diving deeper into mind-blowing wellness practices and making significant changes to their travel arrangements to protect the planet.

Transformative Retreats

This year, travel will become a growing opportunity for people to transform themselves through transformative retreats.

After a year of traveling for relaxation, rejuvenation, and fun, in 2023, we’ll be taking advantage of the opportunity to improve ourselves through transformative retreats. These retreats will help people find their life’s mission, identify their physical capabilities, and overcome grief.

One of the most effective ways to start planning a retreat is through Healing Holidays, which aggregates various retreats based on the type of experience you’re looking for. For instance, Euphoria, a retreat in Greece, will feature group sessions and dance therapy.

Modular Hotels

Rather than being a gimmick, flat-packed hotels are built on the principles of prefabricated architecture and modular housing. These buildings are constructed using factory-made components and then shipped to their destination.

In 2017, Habitas opened its first flat-packed hotel in Mexico. The hotel caters to travelers looking for a more refined and stylish experience.

The company also established a factory in Mexico using the latest technology to produce flat-packed hotel components. Unlike traditional buildings, these structures are not poured and can be assembled on-site in less than a year. Instead of heavy-handed construction, these hotels blend with the natural features of their surrounding areas.

The company’s rapid growth is also related to the rising construction costs. This method is more cost-efficient and allows Habitas to expand its operations at a fast pace.

Not Your Mother’s All Inclusive

Those who are well-traveled usually find it hard to believe that a vacation can be complete without going outside the resort. Innovative brands are now addressing this issue by implementing a more rootsy approach.

Unfortunately, the term “all-inclusive” is associated with disdain by luxury travelers. Most well-traveled people usually find it hard to believe that a vacation can be complete without having to go outside the resort. The good news is that many beautiful properties are now offering a new spin on the concept.

One of the most beautiful properties currently offering a new approach to the concept is The Gallivant, located in Sussex. The hotel’s three-course dinner menu features local ingredients such as lobster with Maldon rock oysters, wood-fired lamb rump, and Kentish blue cheese beignets.

The rise of smart stays has made it easy for people to save money on their holidays. They can avoid unpleasant surprises by being more aware of where their money is going.
