The World Spa & Wellness Awards Hall of Fame is one of the highest accolades and achieving a place is no mean feat.

To be inducted in to the World Spa & Wellness Awards Hall of Fame, properties and individuals must win the same category at World Spa & Wellness Awards three times.

Once a property or individual has achieved a place in the World Spa & Wellness Awards Hall of Fame, they can no longer enter this category. Hall of Fame inductees must wait two full years before re-entering their Hall of Fame category. For example, a spa entering the Hall of Fame in 2023 could not re-enter their Hall of Fame category until 2026.

Below are the members of the World Spa & Wellness Awards Hall of Fame since the Hall of Fame began in 2023. This list will be updated annually with the incredible properties and individuals once they have been inducted to the Hall of Fame.
