AVANI Broadbeach Gold Coast Residences launches Masters
From the sights you see, to the knowledge you gain, travel can be much more than ticking things off a bucket list, with nearly three quarters (75 percent) of Aussies believing travelling is just as valuable as getting a tertiary degree, if not more.
New research from AVANI Broadbeach Gold Coast Residences reveals Aussies are looking to their time away from home to expand their skillset, with three quarters (71.3 percent) of Aussies interested in learning a new skill while on holiday.
Three quarters of the nation (86.7 percent) feel they have not yet achieved their lifelong passions, with more than half (54.3 percent) looking to travelling with the sole purpose of mastering a skill, as the means to bridge the gap.
Over a quarter (27.3 percent) of Aussies surveyed have even gone so far as to admit, they would opt out of booking a holiday if it didn’t involve the opportunity to learn something new.
However, Aussies are increasingly time poor with close to half the nation (46.8 percent) feeling the pressures of work and life prevent them from taking up a new talent at home. With 80 percent of Aussies believing travelling provides life skills you wouldn’t otherwise achieve, AVANI Broadbeach is launching its Masters in Travel experience – a one of a kind program that sees a stay at AVANI turn into a series of fun ways to master a passion.
From cooking up a storm, to mastering the art of stand-up paddle boarding, the top five skills Aussies are looking to learn on holiday include:
- Cooking (25 percent)
- Meditation (14 percent)
- Yoga (13 percent)
- Surfing (12 percent)
- Barista skills (10 percent)
“Travelling doesn’t just unlock experiences, it can teach us new things that we treasure and take with us throughout life,” said Brett Hohn, General Manager AVANI Broadbeach Gold Coast Residences. “Our research found over a third (39.6 percent) of Aussies feel they can achieve more while on holiday, with 1 in 5 feeling a greater sense of accomplishment when they master a passion while travelling.
“We’re all about the details that matter at AVANI Hotels & Resorts, which is why we launched our Masters in Travel program. Our guests can explore outside our four walls, mastering new capabilities in intimate classes and gaining the most out of their travels,” he concluded.
The love of learning on holiday is set to continue, with 1 in 3 Aussies planning to book a trip with the sole purpose of learning a new skill within the next 12 months.
