Spotlight on men: Asia Spa Awards

Asia Spa Awards 2014

Three cheers to Asia Spa Magazine which has devoted three categories to men in its current round of spa awards.  Not only does this reflect the growing number of men who visit spas, it gives recognition to the innovators in the spa industry.

In my experience very few spas have a great offering that is specific and unique to men. But the ones with a touch of vision and an eye for detail really get do get it right. As more and more men book spa days and spa stays, it’s worth taking a look at the leading lights in the male spa industry.

The judging panel includes a range of health experts, spa gurus and well-being writers from from more than ten countries, including Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, India, Australia and also include some Asia experts living in the UK and US. Here are the finalists:
