After a decade transforming the lives of thousands of people from around the world at our current location in Spain, we dreamt of crossing the seas to new continents
– Alejandro Battaler

SHA Wellness Clinic, a destination spa in Spain focused on integrated medical and holistic wellness, has announced plans to take its concept worldwide, with the opening of two new properties on different continents within the next three years.

Building on the success of the original clinic in Spain, SHA Mexico will open in 2021, and a second location will be announced imminently, with longer-term plans to open properties across all continents.

The original SHA first opened in 2008, and uses the SHA Method, which integrates advanced scientific medicine treatments – especially in the field of preventive, genetic and anti-ageing medicine – with the natural therapies, giving special attention to highly therapeutic nutrition. Different health programmes are personalised and adapted for each guest upon arrival, following expert medical and therapeutic evaluations.

The expansion plan has been developed by SHA’s founders, the Bataller family, to reflect the consumer demand to place health and wellbeing at the forefront of all areas of life – business and personal.

“After a decade transforming the lives of thousands of people from around the world at our current location in Spain, we dreamt of crossing the seas to new continents,” Alejandro Battaler, vice president of SHA Wellness Clinic, told Spa Business. “We want more and more people to benefit from our philosophy of integrative health and well-being.”

SHA Mexico will be located in the Quintana Roo state of Cancun across the bay from Isla Mujeres, 30 minutes from Cancun’s international airport.

The property will include 100 suites and private residences with views of the Pacific Ocean, and will stay true to the brand’s principles of sustainability, employing natural construction materials and renewable energy sources in order to minimise environmental impact.

Conceptualised by Mexican architecture studio Sordo Madaleno and led by interiors architect Alejandro Escudero, the property will be located in seven hectares of abundant flora and fauna steps away from a stretch of white sandy beach and ocean.

Mexican ceramics, marble, wicker and locally sourced fabrics will bring together the interiors, which are designed to create a calm and relaxed environment for guests. Landscaping will be carried out by Maat Handasa who will work to create a seamless transition from outside in.

“For years we travelled to dozens of locations in search of the perfect nature, warm weather, and accessibility to replicate SHA,” said Battaler. “Finally we found the perfect spot in the north of the Riviera Maya, facing Isla Mujeres, an unspoiled natural environment with seven hectares of native nature, where SHA will integrate with the generous flora and fauna of the area. In addition to this, the coastline has the most important coral reef in the northern hemisphere.”
