Kuala Lumpur, Aug 23 (ANI): If a new survey is anything to go by, a good night's sleep is much better than great sex.
In a global sleep study of more than 12,500 frequent travellers, conducted by Westin Hotels, 52 per cent Asian respondents felt that a great night's sleep trumped great sex, reports the New Straits Times Online.
The survey also found that 53 per cent would rather have a sleeping pill on their hotel pillow than the ubiquitous chocolate, while 56 per cent took a relaxant, sleep or stress medication when travelling overnight.
One in every two respondents felt a good night's sleep was very important with 58 per cent believing that today's technology and constant connectivity impairs sleep.
In the survey, 21 per cent said that the biggest worry that was keeping them up at night were things like bills or mortgage payments, 20 per cent said that problems with their spouse or partner kept them awake and 18 per cent said work related stress prevented them from getting a good night's sleep.
For male travellers in Asia, the main sleep prevention culprit was problems with their spouse or partner (20 per cent) while for females it was bills and mortgage (28 per cent).
For Canadians and Chinese, the biggest worry was problems with the spouse.
55 per cent those surveyed said that a great hotel bed provides a better sleep experience than their beds at home and 50 per cent agreed that sleeping in a hotel bed while on a business trip was a "luxury".
The survey also found that the most important service people expect from a hotel is a good night's sleep (23 per cent), followed by a good restaurant and shower (16 per cent each).
The survey was conducted on people from Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Spain, the United States and the United Arab Emirates. (ANI)
