Vincent, co-founder of SpaTravellers
shares his journey in building a platform to help travellers find new places to
slow down and recharge...
Living in London, for most busy
professionals, means a lot of commuting, and no time to relax during the
week. Before we know it, the week end is here but with no plan to
make the most of it. And there goes the promised relaxing week end, the
promised escape, thinking about it rather than living in the present and making the
most of it.
Enough is enough! Trapped in that
situation for the last 5 years, Vincent proposed to his wife in June
2013 to save money and kick off a Spa Travellers lifestyle i.e. finding and
booking in advance Hotels with Spas in the United Kingdom. Leaving the
small flat on Friday night at 10PM (to avoid rush hours) to checking in,
in fabulous (but not necessarily expensive) hotels with the promised
of a Saturday morning and afternoon Spa-me time (Sauna, Steam Room,
Jacuzzi, Massage) became the norm, cutting on all other expenses. Wellness
After 12 months of 25 very relaxing hotels
nights in the UK, they both decided to extend their horizon abroad. They searched for
a very simple website that would focus only on Spa Travel. They
came across booking.com, TripAdvisor, Spafinder and so on, but just could not
find what they were looking for. A website that would immediately show them all
available type of Spas, from day Spas, to resort Spas, at any given location,
whether close to their home or anywhere in the world. So they decided to create
it and transform their hobby into a platform that could help
others. After months of research and organization, SpaTravellers is
launching in June 2015.
