Spa Ceylon, the world’s leading luxury Ayurveda brand, continues to expand its global footprint and has just opened a grand 4,000 square feet store and spa in the prestigious Jubilee Hill area in Hyderabad, India.
The glamorous opening ceremony was attended by a host of celebrities led by the beautiful Catherine Tresa, one of Tollywood’s leading movie stars.
Built in Spa Ceylon’s signature style, and laid across two floors, the grand spa accommodates up to 14 guests at a time and offers Spa Ceylon’s signature spa rituals in luxurious comfort.
This is the brand’s fourth location in India and further expansion in Hyderabad is planned with the addition of up to four more locations in this bustling IT city.
Speaking at the opening, Spa Ceylon Director and Co-founder Shalin Balasuriya stated: “Given the already strong demand for Spa Ceylon’s products and services among high-end Indian consumers, we are confident that we will be very successful in this city and look forward to expanding our product and service offerings to more locations in India by the end of the year.”
Internationally, Spa Ceylon will open next in Karachi, Pakistan along with two stores in Kuala Lumpur International Airport KLIA1 and KLIA2 within the next month.
“We hope to reach the big milestone of 100 stores internationally by 2018, expanding rapidly over the next two years to be present across 15 countries in Australasia alone,” said Co-founder and Director Shiwantha Dias.
