A Journey into the Future

As we step into the new year of 2024, the world of travel is undergoing a transformative shift, shaped by evolving technologies, changing consumer preferences, and global events. From sustainable tourism to immersive experiences, the travel landscape is set to offer adventurers a diverse array of opportunities. Let’s delve into the hottest travel trends that will define the journey in 2024.

Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Travel

In 2024, sustainability is not just a buzzword but a guiding principle for many travellers. Conscious of their environmental impact, globetrotters are opting for eco-friendly accommodations, exploring destinations committed to conservation efforts, and engaging in low-impact travel activities. The rise of carbon offset programs and eco-conscious travel apps will empower travellers to make responsible choices, contributing to the preservation of our planet. That is why at IBB Hotel and Cugó Gran Collection we are committed to our sustainability efforts. During 2023, we have been promoting an eco-action each month aimed at making the world a better place, be it by advocating for human rights or by reducing the consumption of water, non-renewable energy sources, animal products, plastic, and more. This year, we will continue developing our sustainability efforts and stop the further degradation of our world and protect all the wonders that nature gives us.

Immersive Technology and Virtual Exploration

The integration of immersive technologies like virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) is revolutionizing the way we experience travel. Virtual exploration allows individuals to “visit” destinations from the comfort of their homes, helping them plan their future trips with greater insight. AR-enhanced city tours, interactive travel apps, and virtual travel consultations will become commonplace, providing a taste of the destination before setting foot on foreign soil. This year, we are also planning to update our current website offerings in each of our hotels and include more information on the experiences at each of the destinations and video tours of the rooms.


Workation Retreats

The boundaries between work and leisure continue to blur as the concept of “workations” gains traction. Travelers are seeking destinations that offer a perfect blend of professional productivity and relaxation. We are responding by providing dedicated co-working spaces, high-speed internet, and wellness facilities. From historic palazzos to old town hideaways, workations offer a refreshing change of scenery for those seeking a work-life balance.


Culinary Tourism and Food Experiences

Food has always been a significant aspect of travel, but in 2024, it takes center stage. Culinary tourism is on the rise, with travellers exploring destinations based on their gastronomic offerings. Food festivals, cooking classes, and immersive dining experiences are becoming popular, allowing travellers to savor local flavors and learn about the culture through its cuisine. In all of our restaurants, in each of our hotels, you can experience and savour local flavours of the different destinations they are set in.

Micro-Cations and Short Getaways

In the fast-paced world of 2024, time is a precious commodity. Enter micro-cations – short, rejuvenating getaways designed to provide a quick escape from the daily grind. Weekend trips to nearby destinations, whether for adventure or relaxation, are gaining popularity. Travelers are opting for frequent, shorter vacations to maintain a healthy work-life balance and satisfy their wanderlust.

Wellness and Mindful Travel

The focus on well-being is a driving force in 2024’s travel trends. Mindful travel experiences, including yoga retreats, meditation workshops, and wellness-focused resorts, are gaining prominence. Travellers are seeking destinations that offer not only physical rejuvenation but also opportunities for mental and emotional well-being.

As we embark on the journey that is 2024, the world of travel is evolving to meet the changing needs and desires of the modern adventurer. Whether it’s a commitment to sustainability, a fascination with immersive technology, or a quest for culinary delights, these 2024 travel trends offer a glimpse into the diverse and exciting possibilities that await those eager to explore the world. So, pack your bags and get ready to embark on a journey that transcends the ordinary and embraces the extraordinary. The future of travel is here, and it’s as vibrant and diverse as the destinations it promises to unveil.
