“We have taken an acre of land in the vicinity of Soaltee Hotel on lease. In the history of the spa industry in Nepal, no one has ever used this much land for spa treatment and fitness centre,” says Phaiju, and he has reason to be slightly boastful.
Tranquility Spa at Soaltee will have Ayurvedic therapy, a well-equipped gymnasium, fitness hall for zumba, aerobics, yoga and meditation practice, swimming pool with reverse osmosis water, unisex beauty salon, and tennis clay court all under one roof. Employing more than 60 staff, the centre aspires to be a relaxation hub for Nepalis, expats and tourists.
Since its establishment in 2008, Tranquility Spa has expanded rapidly to 15 outlets, including the latest, in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan and even in Kuala Lumpur, generating employment for more than 300 staff. Two more hotels in Pokhara will also have Tranquility outlets each.
