Steiner Leisure Limited have announced that Mandara Spa, its premier resort spa brand, is relocating to new corporate headquarters in Kuala Lumpur. The move from Mandara Spa's birthplace in Bali to the Malaysian capital is in response to the growing demand for the Company's services as spa operators in the premium and luxury segments. A company spokesman said that Kuala Lumpur will be the gate-way to Asia and other regions for Mandara Spa.
Commenting on the move, Trent Munday, Managing Director, Mandara Spa Asia said: "Mandara Spa is now a truly global company. There is no other independent spa management company in the world with the combined global reach, resources and experience to match Mandara Spa. Moving our corporate headquarters to Kuala Lumpur will give us a strong corporate base from which we will drive the expansion of our brand."
Whilst the move was necessary to facilitate growth and was reportedly very strategic in nature, Mandara Spa Asia will still be maintaining its training, production and distribution centers in Bali in order for the Company to remain true to its original roots and its trademark Balinese traditions of spa services.
Munday added, "We will be investing over USD $100,000 into our Training Centre and Production & Distribution facilities in Bali to gear up for this expansion. Bali was the birthplace of Mandara Spa and will always remain at heart of the company as an integral part of our culture and philosophy."
Mandara Spa, founded in Bali in 1995, now operates more than 75 spas worldwide, including Bahamas, Bali, Caribbean, China, Fiji, French Polynesia, Guam, Hawaii, Japan, Las Vegas, Malaysia, Maldives, Mexico, Saipan, Thailand and on board cruise ships. Mandara Spa Asia is owned by Steiner Leisure Ltd.
The company's short-term expansions include opening its spas in Sunway Lagoon, Kuala Lumpur and a flagship outlet in Kazakhstan and Oman this year.
