Spa Ceylon – Sri Lanka’s premier spa lifestyle brand – has been recognized for their exceptional innovation in Asia’s Spa Industry and has been judged a nominee for the AsiaSpa Crystal Awards 2011 under the dual categories of ‘Natural Product Line of the Year’ and ‘Spa Ritual Of The Year.’
The AsiaSpa Crystal awards are the spa industry’s Oscars for the Asia Pacific region, with many international and Asian brands vying for honours at the gala awards ceremony held each year in Hong Kong. Spa Ceylon’s award nominations are the first for a South Asian brand and is a great recognition for this relatively young brand now making waves in the international spa industry. Spa Ceylon combines the romance of old Ceylon with ancient Ayurveda wisdom in their extensive range all-natural high performance products for skin, hair, body and wellness.
The range has now been extended to luxury home aromas, spa accessories, organic herbal infusions and pure organic Ceylon teas too.
Spa Ceylon’s uniquely designed jewel green bottles inscribed with Sinhala text and natural formulae enriched with local herbs and essential oils give these luxury Ayurveda products a true Sri Lankan identity.
Ebony hued gift boxes adorned with Royal insignia from the Kandyan courts of ancient Ceylon add classic Ceylonese character to the Spa Ceylon gift collection. In addition, the fact that the product are free of animal ingredients, not tested on animals, contain community trade ingredients and are mostly naturally preserved, has also been given due recognition by this prestigious award nomination.
Spa Ceylon’s second nomination for ‘Spa Ritual of the Year’ is for their unique ‘Hot Sand Massage Ritual’ – inspired by traditional ‘Veli Pottani Thaweema’ – a traditional Ayurveda ritual believed to have been practised in the grand palaces of ancient Ceylon to soothe and comfort travel weary royals.
The ritual combines traditional inhalations, soothing massage and therapeutic kneading with specially designed herb-infused hot-sand compresses for soothing relief from body aches and pains. Today this ancient ritual is a great panacea to help jet-lagged travelers relax and rejuvenate after long intercontinental air travel and is one of Spa Ceylon’s most sought after Spa Rituals.
Spa Ceylon currently operates Signature Spas at Dutch Hospital Arcade Colombo, Park Street Mews Colombo, Casa Colombo, Avani Kalutara and Citrus Hikkaduwa; with Spa Boutiques at Crescat Boulevard, Odel Ward Place and LUV SL Queens Hotel Kandy.
