African spa wins at World Spa and Wellness Awards

The Spa Royal Mansour Marrakech in Morocco has won the Spa of the Year – Middle East & Africa category at the 2023 World Spa and Wellness Awards.

Competing in the same category was The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa in Cape Town, as well as spas in Mauritius, Oman, Qatar and Dubai. The award category was sponsored by Biologique Recherche.

All winners of the World Spa and Wellness Awards were recognised at a black-tie gala dinner at The Brewery, London on Sunday, March 5.

Launched in 2012 to recognise and reward the outstanding work carried out by spas across the globe, the World Spa & Wellness Awards (part of the Professional Beauty Group) is considered the leading award ceremony in the industry and aims to inspire spas around the world and raise global industry standards.

This year saw winners named across 11 categories, recognising all aspects of the spa and wellness industry.

The evening’s celebrity host, TV presenter Anton Du Beke of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ fame, provided a fun and exciting atmosphere that resonated with all finalists in their bid to take home the trophy.

Eve Oxberry, head of editorial for Professional Beauty and World Spa and Wellness, welcomed guests, saying: “The World Spa & Wellness Awards is now in its 11th year, and over that time we’ve seen the industry transition into one with both physical and mental wellbeing at the heart of its offer.

“The importance of touch, community and mindfulness has never been more apparent than in the last few years and our amazing finalists tonight include spas that offer all of that and more, while also achieving a strong business structure and supportive employment environment.”
