The profession of Spa manager – An up and coming Career

Over the past fifteen years, a new role has emerged in hotels: Spa Manager.

The Hotel Spa Manager is the person in charge of the Spa in a hotel, a resort or hotel residence. She or he is the “boss” of the Spa. The Spa Manager is responsible for the profitability of the Spa, customer satisfaction and the quality of the treatments provided.
