Spa Connectors establishes Bali training centre
Bali-based spa consultancy Spa Connectors has opened a training centre, partnering with Jamu Traditions, also based on the island.
The spa consultancy has entered into a management agreement with Jamu Traditions, which includes the Jamu Spa School.
The school was established in 1988 and was the first such facility to open on the island.
Spa Connectors was established earlier this year by Kathryn Moore, whose past industry experience includes group director of spa, Asia for Mspa International.
Spa Connectors said in a statement that the partnership with Jamu was formed in response to the business “being flooded with requests for spa staff from around the globe”.
Spa Connectors' managing director Kathryn Moore said: “The Jamu training team are among the most qualified in Bali with many years of hands-on experience.”
Courses offered by the Jamu Spa School include massage, maternity, beauty and health and wellness treatment courses, among others. The school also offers a number of other courses, including Cibtac certificates, diploma courses and package courses.
Jeannine Carroll, founder and president of Jamu Traditions, said: "The collaboration between Spa Connectors and Jamu brings together two industry powerhouses and is exactly what is needed right now to fill a global deficit of highly trained spa professionals.”
Spa Connectors has also taken over management of Jamu Production, which has more than 20 years’ experience of product manufacturing, and Jamu Traditional Spa.
Spa Connectors range of services include concept, project feasibility, branding, signature treatment development, spa audits, contract management solutions and spa therapist recruitment and training.
The Spa Connectors client list include the Rosewood, Oberoi and Hyatt hotel groups, as well as Lux Resorts, Fivelements Hong Kong and Milaidhoo Island Maldives.
The consultancy also has training centres opening in Thailand, India and the UAE later this year, and next year.
