Of the 180 tourists that signed-up for the special trip, each received an 8-night stay at the hotel and provided a list of a la carte services to make their more experience more unique. Three guests took advantage of the full-package program which includes a stem cell treatment ranging from $8,768 to $43,800 and a six-month supply of nutritional supplements. The more affordable option at just over $44,000 was taken by about 30 other travelers; the package included a full-physical, plastic surgery, hair transplants and skin care.
These packages were a special offer, but we are sure that if you are baller enough to throw around $80,000 on a spa service, you can convince the concierge to organize this. The new hybrid term for this type of hotel stay is 'meditel'. Whatever it's called, we aren't too sure that this type of hotel will gain in popularity in the US. At least, we hope not.
