3. Reading Nook Turned Zen Zone

Revamp a cozy reading nook into a multi-functional Zen zone. Stock it with meditation guides, calming music, aromatherapy diffusers, and a selection of herbal teas. This space should be a haven for guests to unwind and detach from the hustle of everyday life. Bonus points if you supply a few of your favorite books! 

4. Unique Lounge Comforts: Hammocks and Swing Chairs

Incorporate playful yet comfortable lounge options like hammocks or swing chairs. These fun amenities offer a novel way for guests to relax and enjoy their surroundings, whether indoors or in a garden setting.

5. Interactive Culinary Experience: Herb Garden and Outdoor Kitchen

An herb garden paired with an outdoor kitchen allows guests to engage in a farm-to-table culinary experience. This feature not only adds to the wellness aspect through fresh, organic ingredients but also provides a unique and interactive activity.

6. Outdoor Wellness Circuit

Heaven or PS by Open Air Homes

Design an outdoor wellness circuit in your backyard, complete with a small jogging area, and a space for low-impact exercises like Tai Chi or Pilates.  There is also a variety of outdoor exercise equipment to consider, especially if your home is located in a region with great, year round weather.  This amenity caters to guests who prefer staying active in a natural setting.

7. Home Entertainment with a Healthy Twist

Instead of the usual billiards or shuffleboard, introduce games that encourage physical activity like table tennis or a mini-golf setup. These amenities provide a healthy dose of fun and exercise.

Consider amenities that get people moving, but also don’t have them staying up late into the evening drinking and upsetting your neighbors. Indoor shuffleboard is a much better decision to keep the peace in your neighborhood than a beer pong table or even an outdoor ping pong table (which, as you may not be aware, is universally seen by young people are a beer pong table).

8. Eco-Friendly Transport: Bicycles and Electric Scooters

Bungalow Two by Open Air Homes 

Offer eco-friendly transportation options such as bicycles and electric scooters. This not only adds a wellness dimension through physical activity but also aligns with sustainable travel preferences.

9. Customizable Aromatherapy Stations

Set up aromatherapy stations in key areas like bedrooms and bathrooms, where guests can choose from a variety of essential oils to suit their mood and preferences. This personalized touch can enhance the overall sensory experience of their stay.

10. High-Tech Sleep Enhancements
