Yes, it's becoming increasingly popular for hotels and resorts to integrate biophilic features into their properties. Biophilia is the idea that humans have an innate connection to nature and that exposure to natural environments can have a positive impact on health and well-being.

Some of the ways hotels and resorts are incorporating biophilic design include:

  1. Green spaces: Many hotels and resorts are creating lush green spaces, such as gardens, living walls, and rooftop terraces, which not only provide a relaxing and inviting atmosphere but also help purify the air and reduce noise pollution.

  2. Natural materials: Incorporating natural materials, such as wood, stone, and water, into the design of a hotel or resort can help create a sense of calm and relaxation for guests.

  3. Views of nature: Providing guests with views of natural environments, such as mountains, oceans, and forests, can help reduce stress and improve overall well-being.

  4. Nature-inspired: Elements that evoke the natural world, such as artwork depicting landscapes or flora and fauna, can help create a connection to nature.

  5. Wellness programs: Many hotels and resorts are offering wellness programs that encourage guests to engage with nature, such as outdoor yoga or meditation classes, guided nature walks, and organic, locally-sourced dining options.

By incorporating these biophilic features, hotels, and resorts are not only creating a more inviting and enjoyable environment for guests, but they are also promoting health and well-being. If you're looking for exceptional lush lodging that emphasizes biophilic design, you're in luck!

I have had the pleasure of staying at 1 Hotel – Central Park, New York on a few occasions. It is so refreshing to be in the center of the Big Apple and be surrounded by greenery. The hotel is filled with biophilia elements from the lobby, the restaurants, and all the guest rooms. The experience is holistic!

“The concept for Treehouse Hotel has been living in my soul for many years. A special place that feels more “home” than “hotel”...cozy, welcoming, warm, and somehow oasis after a long day that at once refreshes, inspires, and delights.” – Treehouse Hotel
