more than 156 million spa visits the past year, going to the spa has become more a part of a healthy lifestyle as opposed to just a luxury. And because the number
of total spa visits continues to grow each year, Hyatt Resorts recognizes that
more and more spa guests are first-time users and they want to ensure all guests
feel comfortable - so they have created Spa Simple by Spa Hyatt.
Simple by Spa Hyatt will put everyone - from beginners to spa connoisseurs - at
ease so they can enjoy and benefit from their spa experience. Since hotel and
resort spas are the second largest segment of spas in the industry, Gordon Tareta,
director of spa operations for Spa Hyatt, the largest operator of hotel and resort
spas, has created a list of simple tips that address common questions of many
spa guests. The list of Gordon-s tips along with a directory of Spa Hyatt spas
and treatments can also be found on the Web by visiting www.spahyatt.com.

the most of their spa visit:
