Why do people go do bed and breakfasts? Maybe they just needed a place to stay and yours was the last room in town. But, is it really that simple? Most often not. The difference between staying at a hotel and staying at a hotel is the experience. You aren’t just selling a room with a bed and a toilet. You are selling a husband the chance to reconnect with his wife. You are selling a family a life time of “Remember when…?” You are selling a weary business traveler a human connection and a taste of home.
Creating that experience can be achieved many ways. Whimsical dishes, a hand knit throw, fresh flowers, and even a Yukata robe. This traditional Japanese robe is the perfect way to add a comforting touch to any bed and breakfast. So what exactly is a Yukata robe?
Yukata, which translates as “bathing clothes”, are a traditional cotton robe similar to a kimono. They are light and often worn before or after bathing, to bed, or to lounge in. They come in a variety of different colors or patterns and worn by both men and women. A belt is used to secure the robe around the waist, and a light coat can be worn over it during cooler weather.
These light casual robes are the perfect way to welcome guests into your bed and breakfast or spa. Guests are able to relax and unwind in a comfortable robe that adds a touch of the exotic.
