Kris is the epitome of the all-rounder. Firstly, she lives on the frontier of everything health, wellness & spa related - she's the industry knowledge expert. Secondly, she's the "go to person" on everything & anything fitness-related. Finally, she's a strategist, a creative who designs the most beautiful published materials, an incredible writer, a business owner & a person who inspires. Everything she touches sparkles & I've never before worked with someone who delivers so consistently & to such a high standard of excellence.

- KIND WORDS
When it comes to the Spa industry Kris is the first person who immediately comes to my mind. Having known Kris professionally for 10+ years I wholeheartedly recommend her as THE expert and go-to consultant. Over the years Kris has become a friend who I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone who is in the industry and seeking expert advice based on years of hands-on experience. I've worked with Kris on a number of projects and every time she exceeds my expectations on her knowledge, practicalities and creativity for what can be created.

From Spa Life to Spa & Wellness
We started out as a monthly magazine and have evolved into
so much more – we have evolved to be more fitting with where
the wellness-seeking consumer sits today.
The Spa we know and love is so much more than pamper and luxury, it’s
preventative health and lifestyle. We have put in the legwork to find out
how locals around the world support their wellbeing and bring that to
you. Most authentic Spa treatments originate from century old healing
techniques, rituals and practices, not in six-star hotels.
What we offer is a world directory of the best and most authentic spa,
wellness and travel experiences.

Our business is your business
We have created a platform for the Spa, Wellness & Travel
industries to offer their services, and a beautiful space for
consumers to find the best they have to offer.
If you’re a business owner, write a description, add images,
upload your services, integrate social media, and add any
special promotions or deals you’re offering.
You can also put up video content and have total control of
your listing. You can even see who’s visiting your page, what
interactions they had, and even get them to make a booking.
I’ve spent years building this platform to be a one-stop-shop
for travel, wellness and Spa business owners, as well as a
place for consumers to come to find them.
