[UPDATE] Deadline for World Spa & Wellness Awards 2022 entries extended
[UPDATE] The entry deadline for the World Spa & Wellness Awards 2022 has been extended to Monday 10 January, 5pm (GMT). There is still time to enter for a chance to be recognised as one of the leading spas in Western Europe and Scandinavia, Middle East and Africa, North and South America, and Asia and Australasia.
The awards are open to professionals across the world and the categories recognise the hard work operators do to deliver a first-class service in spas in all regions. Three new categories have been added to the awards this year to further recognise the individuals and teams who make a difference to the sector.
New additions include Spa Group of the Year – any spa business that falls within a group structure that has one or more other companies that are owned (directly or indirectly) by a single parent company; and Independent Spa Business of the Year – any spa business that can make its own decisions without having to put them through another party.
Plus, there’s the Outstanding Contribution to the Spa Industry, which merits recognition either for achievement during their spa career or a significant contribution to the spa industry as a whole.
The awards are free to enter, and the deadline is December 23, 2021. Applications are submitted online.
The 14 categories for the World Spa & Wellness Awards 2022 are:
- Spa of the Year: Asia & Australasia
- Spa of the Year: Eastern Europe
- Spa of the Year: Middle East & Africa

All spa entrants are assessed by a panel of highly experienced, global, industry judges who look at everything from customer service, treatment quality and on-going training and education, to retailing, customer journey and marketing initiatives. The awards will take place in London on Sunday, April 3, 2022.
