Crown Spa Perth was named ‘Resort Spa of the Year: Asia & Australasia’ at the World Spa & Wellness Awards in London this February. We caught up with Emma McGrady, Director of Crown Spas, to learn what it takes to win one of the industries most coveted awards.
Launched in 2012 to recognise the outstanding work carried out by spas across the globe, the World Spa & Wellness Awards is considered the leading award ceremony in the industry and aims to inspire change and raise global industry standards.
McGrady represented the team in London this year at the industry’s night of nights.
“We are thrilled and honoured to have won this award which is a true testament to our hardworking team. The industry is evolving at a rapid pace, and to have such a talented group of professionals genuinely invested in wellness is the key to our success.”
Healing and community were common themes linking the winning spas this year. McGrady believes that clientele are now expecting a holistic approach to wellness and beauty from their spa provider.
“We focused on taking what we already delivered in terms of treatments and evolved them into a multi-sensory spa journey”, explains McGrady. “Crown Spa continues to offer a diverse range of signature beauty and body treatments from our partnership with the industry’s finest brands, La Prairie and Subtle Energies, and now with the introduction of wellness therapies, our guests have the best of both worlds.”
One of the most popular treatments, the Platinum Rare Lift Facial, requires two therapists who focus on the full body from face, neck and décolletage to hands and feet, using products from the La Prairie Platinum collection.
In the wellness space, Crown Spa offers a signature range of Subtle Energies ‘Journeys’, which combine meditation, aromatherapy and massage to address physical and emotional concerns.
Visiting practitioner Sohal Shah has also begun consulting at Crown Spa Melbourne. McGrady is delighted to have Sohal on board and believes his global experience will complement the spa’s wellness offerings perfectly. “Sohal’s inspired approach to holistic wellness is what we’re excited about. We are now able to offer our clients a range of natural treatments to begin their journey towards healing and relaxation.”
The rapidly advancing spa and wellness industries are showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon, and according to McGrady, neither is Crown Spa! “With our industry-leading practitioners and luxurious treatments from La Prairie and Subtle Energies, Crown Spa really does set a new standard for health and wellness in Perth.”
