Top news this week: Baha Mar resumes construction, Wynn Palace in Macau opens 48,000sq ft spa, Aman to spend US$30m in new spa developments and refurbs

It’s nearly the end of August and many of us have been on our holidays, but things in the spa industry haven’t slowed down.

This week we learned that the troubled Baha Mar resort in the Bahamas – which has faced a host of delays and a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing – is set to resume construction in September.

Resense is also debuting their 1,500sq m (16,000sq ft) stand-alone circular spa at the Kempinski in Beirut.

Meanwhile, the Wynn Palace in Macau has just opened its doors, with an impressive 4,450sqm) 48,000sq ft spa complete with its own Foucault pendulum.

Vladislav Doronin, the owner of boutique hotel brand Aman, has told Spa Business that the group is planning to spend up to US$30m (€26m, £21m) on new spa developments and refurbishments.

And we take a closer look at how visiting practitioners can boost spa profits.

Look out for fresh news all next week on spaopportunities.com, where we’ll bring you news on a new beachfront Grenadines spa, take a look at the new spa at Four Seasons Prague, and explore LivNordic’s latest project in Qatar.

Don’t forget the latest issue of Spa Business is available online. Click here to download our online turning pages version.
