Spa operators in South Africa and the rest of Africa should take note that the call for entries for the 2022 World Spa & Wellness Awards is now open, until 23 December this year.
Entry into these awards – the most prestigious in the industry – are a chance to be recognised as one of the leading spas in the Middle East & Africa region. There are also a number of categories that are not restricted to regions, such as Sustainable Spa of the Year, among others.
The awards are open to professionals across the world and the categories recognise the hard work operators do to deliver a first-class service in spas in all regions. Three new categories have been added to the awards this year to further recognise the individuals and teams who make a difference to the sector.
New additions include Spa Group of the Year – any spa business that falls within a group structure that has one or more other companies that are owned (directly or indirectly) by a single parent company; and Independent Spa Business of the Year – any spa business that can make its own decisions without having to put them through another party.
Plus, there’s the Outstanding Contribution to the Spa Industry, which merits recognition either for achievement during their spa career or a significant contribution to the spa industry as a whole.

· Spa of the Year: Asia & Australasia
