What sets the best in the world apart? We find out from the team at COMO Shambhala Urban Escape Perth.
The 2022 World Spa & Wellness Awards (WSWA) Finalists have been announced and two Australian spas were among the lucky shortlist of luxury spas around the world.
Perth-based spa COMO Shambhala at COMO The Treasury is a finalist in the Spa of the Year – Asia & Australasia, while the team at Crown Spa Melbourne is in the running for team of the year.
The WSWAs recognise excellence in spas in wellness provision, treatment delivery, customer care, business skill, leadership, and sustainability. In 2022, the awards are set to take place on April 3 aboard a luxury yacht in London.
We spoke to the team at COMO Shambhala Urban Escape Perth to find out more about what sets them apart from the crowd and their thoughts on becoming finalists in the World Spa & Wellness Awards 2022.
