World Spa & Wellness Awards 2019 celebrates the best in the global spa business at an annual ceremony in London


The beauty and wellness industry’s very finest were recognised this week at the World Spa & Wellness Awards 2019, which took place at a black-tie gala dinner at The Brewery, London on Sunday, February 24.

Launched in 2012 to recognise and reward the outstanding work carried out by spas across the globe, the World Spa & Wellness Awards is considered the leading award ceremony in the industry and aims to inspire spas around the world to be the very best they can be and raise global industry standards.

This year – the biggest awards yet – saw winners named across 11 categories, recognising all aspects of the spa and wellness industry. Eve Oxberry, head of editorial for Professional Beauty and World Spa and Wellness, welcomed guests, saying: “In our increasingly tech-focused world, there’s never been a greater need for healing touch and a sense of community, and that’s what every finalist at these awards delivers expertly.”

The evening’s celebrity host, comedian Tom Allen, provided a fun and exciting atmosphere that resonated with all finalists in their bid to take home the trophy.

After dinner and the opportunity to network with staff, peers and suppliers, it was on to the awards – including the ultimate accolade, Worldwide Health & Wellness Destination of the Year, which was named as Fonteverde.
