The World Spa Awards has partnered with Aromatherapy Associates, Bastien Gonzalez and Natura Bissé for its 5th annual event, taking place October 19 to 21 at the Armani Hotel Dubai, United Arab Emirates. “It is an honor to team up with such globally recognized brands in the spa and wellness industry to provide our guests with what promises to be an unforgettable experience,” says World Spa Awards managing director Rebecca Cohen.
Among the highlights on the three-day itinerary will be Bastien Gonzalez running a PEDI:MANI:CURE Pop-up Studio featuring foot/hand deep treatments, and a Natura Bissé Diamond Cocoon Experience, performed in a 99.9 percent pure air environment to boost the treatment benefits and leave skin glowing, healthy and rejuvenated.
Launched in 2015, the World Spa Awards is the sister event to the World Travel Awards, now in its 26th year. The program was developed in response to overwhelming demand from the spa industry for a fair and transparent benchmark of excellence, and to help to foster a new era of growth in spa tourism by rewarding leaders in the field.
Award categories include Best Hotel Spa, Best Destination Spa, Best Spa Design, Best Cruise Spa, Best Detox Program, Best Eco Spa and Best Medical Spa. Winners will be unveiled at the red carpet gala ceremony on October 21.
