Global wellness tourism research


The Global Wellness Institute 2018 report “Build Well To Live Well”, is the first research to size and analyse the global and regional wellness lifestyle real estate and communities market.

More world-class wellness communities will be created by combining a geographic concentration of cutting-edge medical industry companies and research organizations; a concentration of high-quality hospitals and health services for consumers; and holistically designed wellness focused homes and neighbourhoods.

Lake Nona (Florida) is anchored on more than a dozen research hospitals, medical centres, sports training facilities, and tech companies clustered around its wellness focused homes.

In Europe, there is immense opportunity to redevelop historic spa towns as holistic wellness communities, like Kemeri Park in Latvia, which is renovating a Soviet-era health resort/thermal bathing facilities to regenerate the nearby village following wellness community design principles.
