If you're tired of racking up tons of frequent flier miles only to have to blow them at lackluster inns or motels, there may soon be a new, holistic option out there for you. According to the Financial Times, InterContinental Hotels will soon be offering rooms that are essentially individualized yoga meditation retreats for one!
These accommodations will be available in 2013, when the chain's first EVEN Hotel is completed. The news source noted that each room will be furnished with exercise balls, chin-up bars, yoga mats and wellness supplies – perfect for doing your yoga meditation poses while on the road.
Richard Solomons, the CEO of the hotel corporation, noted that while a few of the typical temptations – like the minibar – will not be available, "[there is] not going to be some guy in a tracksuit at reception demanding you go for a run each morning."
Instead, the hotel chain will be dedicated to helping travelers attend to their physical health. To that end, each room will be large enough to accommodate yoga routines, meals will be healthy and organic, and receptionists will be able to provide nutrition tips at a moment's notice.
Not bad for all you yoga lovers out there!
