Hotel Heritage, a Relais & Chateaux Property

Johan Creytens is the General Manager and Owner of the boutique luxury Hotel Heritage, a Relais & Chateaux property located in the heart of the charming city of Bruges, in Belgium.

Mr. Creytens and his wife, Isabelle, purchased the hotel in 1992, and renovated the historic 1800's mansion into the award winning 24-room hotel it is today.

Mr. Creytens studied Architectural design with many years of experience as a project manager of Hotel projects. His skills were further fine-tuned with several marketing and management courses. He still wanted more and finally made his own hotel project. It became a state of the art renovation of a beautiful mansion house in Bruges into a boutique hotel. His hotel management skills were updated at the Cornell University with a post-graduate degree in Hotel Marketing.

Hotel Spa: Measuring the Results
As the Hotel Spa and Wellness Movement continues to flourish, spa operations are seeking new and innovative ways to expand their menu of services to attract even more people to their facilities, and to and measure the results of spa treatments. Whether its spa, fitness, wellness meet guest expectations. Among new developments, there seems to be a growing emphasis on science to define or beauty services, guests are becoming increasingly careful about what they ingest, inhale or put on their skin, and they are requesting scientific data on the treatments they receive. They are open to exploring the benefits of alternative therapies like brain fitness exercises, electro-magnetic treatments, and chromotherapy but only if they have been validated scientifically. Similarly, some spas are integrating select medical services and procedures into their operations, continuing the convergence of hotel spas with the medical world. Parents are also increasingly concerned about the health and well-being of their children and are willing to devote time and money to overcome their poor diets, constant stress, and hours spent hunched over computer, tablet and smartphone screens. Parents are investing in wellness-centric family vacations; yoga and massage for kids; mindfulness and meditation classes; and healthy, locally sourced, organic food. For hotel spas, this trend represents a significant area for future growth. Other trends include the proliferation of Wellness Festivals which celebrate health and well-being, and position hotel spas front and center. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
