NOLA 7 was founded by Ivan Tanev in 1994
and the managing director is Richard Bishop.
NOLA 7 is a global source of professional wellness
and hydrotherapy provision. With over
200 employees, we can offer turnkey wellness
services. Our company has 18 years’ experience
in project management, design, construction
and equipment manufacturing for wellness
centres, swimming pools and water parks.
We provide innovative total engineering
solutions with guaranteed quality control
and customer satisfaction.
We also provide planned maintenance and
professional industry training and supply
consumables such as natural fragrances, rasul
muds and salt inhalation products.
Unique selling points
We consciously listen to each client and
embrace their individual vision, wishes and
branding to create bespoke design solutions,
which range from large-scale destination spa
projects through to ultra-modern boutique
and rough-luxe spa centres.
We also specialise in thermal hydrotherapy
and marine spas, including those that offer salt
inhalation and natural salt-water treatment.
From designing a new thermal suite or
refreshing an existing spa, our prime goal is
to create a soothing sanctuary.
Our extensive wellness portfolio incorporates
everything from unique heat facilities
such as Russian banyas, Finnish and aroma
saunas and hammams; as well glacial ice and
snow, Himalayan salt and rose steam experiences
through to specialist hydro-vitality and
natural salt pools and water parks.
We’ve also developed a number of revenueearning
thermal experiences, such as rasul mud
cure rooms, to add another revenue stream and
accelerate our client’s return of investment.
