Many consider hygge the secret to happiness, and many seek happiness in a spa setting, which makes hygge the perfect fit for spas. “Interestingly enough, in many ways, spas and the spa industry have been predisposed to the concept of hygge for a very long time, without realizing it, as it has at its core been a place that helps many of us indulge in some much-needed ‘me’ time,” says Ghantous. However, there are many ways that spas can further promote this hygge feeling among spa-goers. Here are a few that are sure to help guests enjoy the moment:
Create more coed lounging rooms and coed experiences in spas.
At The Spa at Pebble Beach (CA), for example, a fire pit in the relaxation area is ideal for gathering with friends. What’s more, in the Flotation Wrap Suite, two floating beds allow couples or friends to enjoy a choice of three 45-minute flotation wrap treatments ($170 for one person, $260 for two people): the Swiss Créme, the Cloud Nineteen, and the Espresso Limón Slimming Wrap.

The party services include robes, slippers, and access to the spa’s amenities, including the pool, Jacuzzi, steam room, and sauna. Guests can choose from a number of packages, such as Girls Night Out ($199 per person), which includes a chair massage, a chair facial, a manicure, and pedicure; and A-List Bliss ($179 per person), which includes a chair massage, a pedicure, and a manicure.
Create a warm and comfortable, yet minimalistic environment.
