This spring, global spa and skincare brand, ESPA announced an exclusive partnership with Al Khozama Management Company in Saudi Arabia. Following the successful collaboration and ongoing operation of Al Faisaliah Spa by ESPA at Al Faisaliah Hotel Riyadh (Saudi Arabia), the two will team up on two additional spa properties within Riyadh. “This is a particularly exciting and important time in our partnership with Al Khozama Management Company,” says Sue Harmsworth, founder and chairman of ESPA International. “We are proud of the success of our first spa and very much look forward to other new openings planned for the future, which will deliver our world-class spa service while seamlessly reflecting the rich local culture and heritage of Saudi Arabia.”
ESPA plans to open Al Faisaliah Spa by ESPA at Al Faisaliah Resort, A Rosewood Resort at Durrat Arriyadh (Saudi Arabia) in late 2016. Located just 30 minutes from Riyadh, the spa provides a tranquil oasis away from the city, providing guests with a place to unwind and indulge in a number of world-class treatments. The spa’s signature treatment menu created by ESPA exclusively for the resort reflects the local culture and heritage. In addition to this property, ESPA will also work over the next decade in alliance with Prince Bandar Bin Saud Al Saud of Al Khozama Management Company and architecture firm Gensler on the opening of Al Khozama Lifestyle Club and Spa by ESPA at the Al Khozama Hotel, Riyadh (Saudi Arabia). This world-class private men’s club and spa will unite state-of-the-art design, extensive spa and fitness facilities, and a unique men’s treatment and grooming menu designed by ESPA. "We are delighted to partner with a prestigious international spa operator like ESPA,” says Bandar. “The extension of our partnership endeavors to elevate the spa industry standards in the kingdom, contribute to the community, and inspire the tourism industry to advance further."
