In recognition of the industry’s finest in 21 categories, awards voted on by a panel of 18 expert judges were presented to spas, hotels and resorts, retreats, academies, personalities and products that have exhibited outstanding achievements in not only luxury standards, but also innovation and ecological awareness in the wellness fields.

The big winners of the night included ESPA at Phulay Bay, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Krabi, Thailand, which took home ‘Spa of the Year (Southeast Asia & the Pacific)’, while ‘Spa of the Year (North & West Asia)’ went to Ananda Spa at Ananda in the Himalayas in India. Aromatherapy Associates was awarded Spa Product Line of the Year, and Banyan Tree Spa Shanghai On The Bund at Banyan Tree Shanghai On The Bund in China was recognised as ‘Urban Spa of the Year’, and Cocoon Medical Spa in Bali, Indonesia received ‘Medi-Spa of the Year’.
