World Spa & Wellness Awards name global spa winners

by Jane Kitchen | 01 Mar 2017

One&Only spas picked up two awards at the World Spa & Wellness Awards held Sunday (26 February) in London, and Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary & Holistic Spa in Koh Samui, Thailand was named Worldwide Health & Wellness Destination of the Year.

The awards were announced at a glittering black-tie dinner held at Tobacco Dock, a Grade I listed warehouse in the Docklands area of the East End of London that was originally constructed in 1811.

John Stewart, Kamalaya co-founder and Chair, travelled to London to receive the award.

“It was moving to collect this award on behalf of our truly dedicated Kamalaya team, as it is such a great acknowledgement for each of them, devoting their time and skill with heartfelt compassion and great care every day to make a difference in our guests’ lives," said Stewart. "They are the ones who bring Kamalaya’s vision to life: to inspire people to live with greater health and harmony."

Held in conjunction with the World Spa & Wellness Conference and the Professional Beauty trade show, the awards recognise and reward hotel and resort spas around the world, acknowledging excellence of care, service and standards. Spas are judged by experienced industry professionals, and all shortlisted spas are visited by both an official and a mystery judge during the second round of judging.
