Sample Resorts Pro Trends

Each Resorts PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online resorts articles, videos and images. Examples:

Check-In 2.0 Hotels adopt easier check-in systems for consumer allure Implications - In an effort to compete with the peer-to-peer economy and the sharing of accommodations, hotels are trying to make the travel process as seamless as possible for guests. Noting that convenience is paramount when it comes to travel, hotels are now offering digital, mobile or biometric check-ins to increase efficiency. Not only easier, this system also speaks to a consumer desire for greater control and independence.

Exclusive Luxury Ultra boutique hotels emphasize their small scale through upleveled services Implications - As overuse of the term "boutique" has made the moniker almost trivial in regards to accommodations, ultra-tiny luxury hotels are emphasizing the scale of their facilities through highly specific and customized amenities. These small-scale luxury accommodations often boast themed suites that offer truly one-of-a-kind experiences accessible to only one party at a time.

Outdoor Domestication Seeking a personal touch, consumers turn to outdoor DIY alternatives Implications - Adding a customized approach to outdoor living, consumers are turning to DIY decor and furnishings for domestic appeal. Building things like hammocks and cabins from scratch, consumers are using the make-it-yourself approach not only as a means to reflect personal style, but also as a way of engaging with outdoor environments in a more hands-on way. These hand-crafted solutions allow individuals to experience outdoor living in a way that maintains a sense of home and familiarity.

Simulated Adventure Consumers who crave change but are reluctant seek alternatives Implications - Though adventure and experience are a bigger priority than ever with the rise of global communication, some consumers are still reluctant to spend the time and money on a short-term experience. Thus, simulated adventure located closer to home and at a lower cost serves as a great alternative. This speaks to the cautious financial attitudes of much of the population.

Luxurious Love Couple tourism is taken a level higher with ultra-luxury Implications - Post-recession, the desire to communicate prestige is stronger than ever, calling for status in everything from food to relationships. This leads to an influx of luxury couples travel packages. In addition to status, this pattern portrays relationships as the beginning of an adventure, as opposed to the more subdued lifestyle associated with the marriages of decades past.

Mature Imitation Kids fashion shifts toward emulating older, adult tastes Implications - Reflecting an increasing need among teens and tweens to "grow up" faster, contemporary kids clothes are moving toward a more mature aesthetic. Creating apparel pieces that reflect older, adult lifestyles, retailers are not only providing a more refined clothing option, but they're also allowing kids to showcase an affinity for adulthood in an accessible way.
