About This New Wellness Concept and its Rewards.

Imagine a world where you could go on vacation and feel like you were at home! A place where the rooms were designed to help you relax, breathe deeply, and unwind at the end of a long day. A location where the food was delicious and satiating, with ingredients that nourished your body and soul. A hotel that understood how important it is for people to get physical activity while they're away from work, so they built a gym in every room.

That's Well-Certified!


Well-Certified hotels are focused on people's well-being in the built environment — and these concepts are becoming popular in resorts worldwide.

The goal of the WELL Health Safety Rating is to focus primarily on people’s well-being in the built environment. Post-Covid, the hospitality sector has been booming but health protocols are still a big concern for travelers. The requirements for well-being awareness are increasing and some hotels and resort groups have decided to take the lead in providing the best for their guests – improved air quality, natural lighting, healthier food options, and access to nature and the outdoors are some of the features being added to their accommodations and amenities.

“Organizations everywhere – from startups to Fortune 500s – use WELL to prioritize the health and safety of their people, maximize real estate value and optimize the human and social capital performance of their business.” – IWBI
