[de] "We want to change the world, no less!" – That is the mission of Anne Biging and Dr. Elisabeth Ixmeier, the founders of Healing Hotels of the World. It was their ambition to create profound and enriching experiences for travelers that brought this global brand to life in 2006 and has kept it growing ever since.
More than 115 hotels and resorts worldwide comprise the elite properties bearing the quality stamp of a healing hotel. It’s an exclusive group, hand-picked by invitation only, offering the best healing treatments and an overall holistic approach for their guest’s body, mind and soul – tailor-made and individually crafted for each person’s needs and goals. Every member hotel is a unique hide-away with a specific health focus, providing amazing, sustainable experiences. The demand for meaningful holidays on a personal level is growing. Healing hotels are differentiated from wellness hotels because they actively support guest's desires for enhanced health, happiness and balance in their lives, during their stay and after they depart. Becoming a member of Healing Hotels of the World means elevating your property and services to the next level, providing the ability for you to welcome new guests from all over the world.
Let´s celebrate 10 years of Healing Hotels of the World; 10 years of healing and 10 years of making a significant change in people’s lives… for many more to come!

[de] We assess the aspirant on the basis of clearly defined and constantly revised criteria, and provide the potential member with professional advice in regards to the partnership with Healing Hotel of the World.
The different levels of criteria (I-III) mirror the range within the Healing Hotels of the Word group:
Level I: standard Healing Hotel. In order to become a partner with the elite, a hotel has to fulfill at least 75% of the criteria stated for level I.
Level II: advanced Healing Hotel.
Level III: the ultimate Healing Hotel with absolute competence in the field of holistic healing.
The criteria have been developed to assess and to determine the actual state of a Healing Hotel. Further, they offer you some guidance that might improve your positioning in the very special market of holistic health by showing potential for development. If you decide to take the next step from one level to another or simply aim for the 100% in the level you are currently in, we are more than happy to help you in this endeavor.

The assessment of a hotel is not just strictly based on the criteria, as the uniqueness of each property plays a very important role and strengths are measured against weaknesses.
