thesis and an outline on Place of Spa Resorts in Hospitality Business. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. This is very important because the spa industry is becoming a multibillion industry in China (Yuann & Inch, 2008).
This study aims at looking at the definition of the resort spa services and how these services can be delivered. This is study intends to have a clear definition of the resort spa in order to provide the parameters of resort spa which can be used by providers of these services in a competent way. The need for doing this is the fact that the modern spa industry does not have a good definition of the different spa services thus making it harder for most if these businesses to provide specialised services. Due to the ambiguity of the various spa services, most of the hospitality businesses which offer these services are therefore forced to offer a mixture of these services without regard to the consumers who may be looking for specific spa services.
Not only are the lay people not clear about the definition of the various types of spas, but even in some cases the professionals who run these spas may not be completely and competently aware of the definitions of the various types of spas. One type of spa that has not received the right definition is the resort spa. While is it not easy to give the definition of a resort spa in a single sentence, it is possible to give the parameters which define the report spa. These parameters are defined in regard to the sort of services the spa offers, the kind of clientele it targets and the area it serves. For this reason, it is necessary to have a good definition for the resort spa.
Due to the nature of the topic, the methodology which was used to get the information was basically gained through a review of literature. The concept of spa is a relatively new one and getting statistical data about is difficult (Capellini, 2012). Apart from that this participate research was dealing with a topic that did not require statistics data.
