Career In Spa Management
Posted 18 April 2011 - 08:52 AM
does anyone has ideas or advices where to start my career in the wellness and spa department? Which hotel chains are good, and would I have a chance in Asia as a German citizen? I found the spa academy in Bangkok very interesting and would like doing my certificates over there while working for an international hotel chain.
Since I am new in that forum I would be happy to get from professionals some suggestions or feedback.
Thanks a lot

In terms of Asia, I use to work in Hong Kong and strange enough, none of management was local.
The Corporate director of Spa was Caucasian and looks to be in his early-mid 30s.
Other managers were from Singapore, Thailand and America.
You definitely have a good chance if you can speak English and German.
Go to Fairmont's website. They have a Spa specializing route for their leadership development program.

I am really thankful if I receive helpful comments since it is not so easy to find the right way after finishing my studies.
Thank you once again.

Register to LinkedIn.com and you can search the profiles of many Spa Management professionals. Take a look at their education level and experience, and see where it has taken them.
You may also contact them to give you better advice in terms of your specialization.
Personally, I don't know much about Spa Mgmt so do speak with the professionals.
Cheers and all the best akaiser,
