Water resorts: Here’s your hot summer trend

Every spring, I look forward to a personal ritual of researching summer travel trends for the simple reason of alerting hotels. And this summer, water resorts may want to prepare before the latest travel gadget hits their properties!

In past years, my summer alerts have included water-propelled jetpacks, staff-created biking tours and hidden gem tours – and who can forget the viral response that selfie sticks caused?

My pick this summer is one that any property with a pool or beachside location should be aware of, especially if you have designated “quiet zones” for guests desiring some peaceful Zen time.  

Both ridiculous and compelling, your guests may be wearing fanny packs, but this time around they are a bit techy as they come equipped with USB-powered speakers and clip-on remotes to control the music. 

The sound box waist bags are already being touted for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day gift guides. After entering a Laguna Beach, California, resort assuming that the music I was hearing was “live” but discovering that it came from a fanny pack, was all the convincing I needed to select it as my top summer gadget pick.
