Main services and products
ESPA has pioneered the spa and wellness
industry we know today with the creation,
design, build and operation of spas around
the globe. Every ESPA spa displays originality,
innovation and is a seamless extension
of the adjoining property and brand. These
factors, together with each client’s specific
brief, mean no two ESPA spas are ever the
same. What does remain consistent is the
highest level of excellence and attention to
detail for which the ESPA brand is renowned.
Our approach not only leads to the ultimate
guest experience, but also generates spa solutions
that drive commercial return.
We have successfully partnered with hoteliers,
investors and owners within 55 countries
to create some of the world’s finest spas. With
offices across the world we can respond to
every client’s needs and provide a genuine
understanding of the varying international
requirements and considerations.
ESPA offers a comprehensive range of
exceptionally efficacious skin and body care
and are proud to manufacture in our own UK based
factory. ESPA products and treatments
are an integral part of the total guest experience
within the spa and at home.
Additional services and products
ESPA offers a range of solution-led face and
body treatments plus massages, each designed
and tailored to ensure that clients experience
the best physical and emotional therapeutic
benefits depending on their requirements.
We recognise that highly trained staff are
vital to the running of a successful spa operation
and critical to your retail business. Our
aim is to recruit and educate to a level that
provides inspiration and motivation to deliver
award-winning standards. Finding, training
and retraining the team is paramount to a
spa’s success and we invest a lot of focus and
energy into finding the right people, both attitude
and skill set-wise, to build spa teams. All
of the ESPA courses are taught by internationally
recognised trainers who are vastly
experienced therapists themselves.
