Wellness tourism is on the rise in Argentina as more hotels and resorts adapt to foreign visitor demands for Aromatherapy, Chromatherapy, Hot Stones, Thai Massage and Herbal Treatments.
From the finest Buenos Aires hotels to rural retreats in tranquil settings like Bariloche, Iguazu, and Mendoza, new spas are opening while existing spas are adding innovative face and body treatments to their menus.
According to TUR Noticias, 87% of the treatments in Argentina use water as the essential cleansing element while others incorporate clay, algae, wine and mud, one of the healthiest components of spa therapies when it comes from the correct source and is used appropriately. Most high-end spas in Argentina have qualified directors who oversee spa quality controls and tailor treatments to the needs of each client.
Industry officials at the 2011 European Medical Travel Conference said Health & Wellness Tourism generates US$100 billion annually and predicted 100% growth over the next decade, making it one of the travel industry’s fastest-growing segments. Luxury spas and unique treatments in Argentina include everything from Jungle Mist in Buenos Aires to chocolate baths in Iguazu to hydromassages in Villa La Angostura and crushed Malbec scrubs in Mendoza.
