LNE Spa Awards 2019

| April 11, 2019


Les Nouvelles Esthetiques, South Africa would like you invite all spas to participate in the 15th Annual South African Spa Awards, presented in association with Les Nouvelles Esthetiques & Spa, Paris.

The Concept

Spas are the source of finding a sense of well-being. They are a sanctuary where one can escape and a place to unwind. They allow us to renew our body, mind and soul, and although society generally has moved away from embracing recreational time, we are finally coming full circle and embracing this time to revive and de-stress.

The phenomenal growth in the Spa Industry in South Africa is symbolic to this, thus the Les Nouvelles Esthetiques Sanitas Per Aquas (S.P.A) Awards was established in 2005 to honour this flourishing market and those who excel in their field. Now into its 15th year the awards the Les Nouvelles Esthetiques South African Spa Awards is the country’s premier spa awards and has grown from strength to strength, boasting the county’s finest spas as winners and finalists.

Through the success of the previous awards, the Les Nouvelles Esthetiques Spa Awards increases in its stature each year, providing the South African and International Spa Visitors and Media with a comprehensive choice of award winning spas, and a reliable source of spa information and recommendations, within South Africa.

The awards have been designed to stimulate a desire for service excellence among South African Spas in a growing local and international market.

The annual Les Nouvelles Esthetiques Spa Awards will be hosted by Les Nouvelles Esthetiques South Africa in association with Les Nouvelles Esthetiques Paris, on Sunday the 28th July 2019, at The Capital on the Parks Hotel, Sandton Johannesburg.
