Beauty news: East Day Spa and Spring Spa win big at World Spa Awards

One of my all time ‘happy places’ is East Day Spa in Auckland’s five-star SKYCITY Grand Hotel - along with its sister spas under the name Spring Spa in places like St. Heliers and Queenstown, New Zealand and Seminyak, Bali. I’ve had the pleasure of whiling away an afternoon in one of them several times over the years, and often actually didn’t want to leave! To say I was so relaxed/transformed that I almost had to be peeled off the floor would be an understatement – these places are transformative, and then some.  A beauty destination that is definitely top of my bucket list is East Day Spa’s five-star East Residence in Bali. I have heard nothing but amazing things about the seriously heavenly spot, and photos of it don’t look real – the stuff of dreams for sure.
And it is clear that I am not the only person that thinks this way, with East Day Spa winning the prestigious award for New Zealand’s Best Hotel Spa at the World Spa Awards 2018, marking the third year running that they have taken the category title.
Alongside East Day Spa’s award, hip sister spa and lifestyle brand Spring Spa in Seminyak Village, was crowned Asia’s Best Day Spa 2018 in the hotly contested category, also for the third year running.
The awards were announced on Friday evening at a gala ceremony in the Maldives following a record number of votes that were cast by leading spa and wellness tourism professionals, as well as hundreds of thousands of spa consumers from across the globe to determine the winners.
East Day Spa and Spring Spa are the brainchild of founder and CEO Ina Bajaj, who is naturally delighted to add two more awards to her impressive collection.
“We’re very proud of what we’ve achieved over the past 16 years. To see both East Day Spa and Spring continue to impress on an international stage and receive the ultimate recognition for operating to the highest standards is a remarkable achievement,” says the astute businesswoman and spa connoisseur. “The categories we have won at the World Spa Awards are highly competitive and reflect the strength of our world-class and independent spa brands that have been founded right here in New Zealand.”
As an innovator in the spa industry, Ina’s spa brands have seen enormous success through her focus on creating unique spaces that appeal to the target consumer. While the East Day Spa brand appeals to a luxury consumer housed in a 5-star location that is a calm haven of East and West, the Spring brand brings a contemporary touch to the traditional spa environment with an effortless fusion of beauty, design and lifestyle, situated in vibrant locations.
If you haven’t visited one of these stellar destinations in a while then I highly recommend that you do – you definitely won’t be disappointed. And remember too that Christmas is coming - a gift voucher to any of these stunning locales will make you the most popular gift-giver on the block!
