Meet Marisa Dimitriadis from The Spa Consultants
The Spa Consultants team are committed to the philosophy of spa, with a unique range of experience that will deliver a brilliant project. We caught up with Marisa to find out more…
Marisa tell us about the creation and concept behind The Spa Consultants?
The Spa Consultants was founded in 2005 where I noticed a big gap in the market for a professional consultant to Design, Develop and implement operational systems for Spas. With over 40 completed Spa Projects and managing the operations of some leading Spas in the country now, we pride ourselves in delivering systems that produce a sustainable and profitable spa business.
We have also launched two professional spa brands, SIX Sensational Skincare for face that is now venturing into the aesthetic market with the latest technology Automated Micro needling Pen system and Spalicious for hands, feet and body.
What are the typical services that you would supply?
When it comes to the development of a spa project we get involved from ground level with conceptual planning right the way through to opening and then into operations, training and implementation of business systems.
We design and create signature treatments, we design treatment menus, develop training programmes and even run management contracts with spas. We also offer training for our brands where we teach qualified skin therapists to use the products and prescribe them to the consumer.
What has been the weirdest of most wonderful request you have received from a client in this business?
To design and build a sensual/erotic massage Spa – it is a little out of the norm. Another beyond amazing project I did a while back was a spa in the Seychelles on a tiny island with only one hotel with the most expensive hotel room per night at the time we built the space. It was heaven to work on that.
Where to in the next year for The Spa Consultants?
Our two brands SIX Sensational Skincare and Spalicious are growing rapidly, so our plan there is to develop the export market with both brands as well as to launch our Pregnancy Care Collection and our Baby Range.
What is your fave item of clothing in your wardrobe right now?
A Desigual pair of Denims I bought in Spain in July.
If you had to sing along to one song on the radio at the top of your lungs, which one would it be, and why?
I’m loving Wake me Up by Avicii
Favourite South African food of all time?
I absolutely adore pap with a rich and spicy tomato-based sauce. Yummy!
If you could have dinner with anyone (alive or dead) who would it be and why?
My mom, I miss her.
