When it comes to hospitality design, planning out a quality landscape is a significant consideration that can make a big difference from first impressions of the property until the guests leave. A study conducted in Turkey found that 12% of guests chose to stay at a hotel based on the landscape design and 80% of those surveyed indicated that they paid attention to the landscape design at the resort they stayed at. The design and creation of vibrant landscapes at resorts and hotels can make a great contribution to physical environments by emphasizing the protection of natural character and cultural identity. Having a well-designed hospitality landscape can be effective in tourism and boost the number of guests that choose to stay at a specific resort or hotel.

Choosing a professional landscape architect to create memorable and intimate outdoor spaces is paramount to any successful hospitality project. Whether it’s a resort style pool or a restaurant’s exterior patio space, the use of physical structures with the right design and human scale is important in raising customer satisfaction and experience - and keeps them coming back.
