You’re probably wondering what the asiaSpa India Awards are. I was too. So, conceptualized in 2007, they’re hosted to give recognition to the sensational spas in India and Asia. They’re held to encourage the rapidly growing spa and wellness industry in the country. I really feel like I see a new spa open up at every nook and corner these days. Spas around the country nominate themselves in different categories. This is further processed and validated by reputed audit firm Grant Thornton to ensure that it is held in a trustworthy and transparent manner. The three exclusive titles – Wellness Icon, Spa Diva and Spa personality are given to quintessence of a vigorous, healthy and fit lifestyle. In the past years, wellness aficionados like John Abraham, Arjun Rampal, Sushmita Sen, Shobhaa De and Rekha have been presented with these coveted titles. Gul Panag, Rani Mukherjee and Rekha added the major glam factor to this year’s event.

Categories such as “Best Ayurvedic Spa of the Year” and “Best Spa Therapist of the Year” honour current trends, consistent performances and movers and shakers of this burgeoning industry. “Most Innovative Spa” honours spas that take an innovative approach to health and wellness by demonstrating an original spa concept, cutting-edge design and unique spa treatments. This year, two new categories ‘Best Spalon’ and ‘The Best Spa Product’ for men have been included in the nomination categories. The awards ceremony was on the 14th of April, 2011 at New Delhi’s freshest hotel, The Claridges Resort and Spa, Surajkund.

Wellness Icon 2010 was awarded to Vijender Singh who has been oozing fitness and vigour ever since he made a mark in this country. Rani Mukherjee was awarded the title of Spa Diva 2010 for she is dedicated to wellness and sets and example for others to emulate. Madhu Nair, Leela Kempinski was awarded the Spa Personality 2010. She is someone who has been a part of the industry for 18 years. She is creating and running award winning spas of international standards, helping the wellness industry evolve and be at par with any other country in the world. Rekha also launched an exclusive supplement to offer her own expressions on the subject. She has remained Spa Diva for a while and handed over the trophy to Rani Mukerji. Guest editors Gul Panag, Feroze Gujral and Maharana Arvind Singh of Mewar were felicitated for their contribution to asiaSpa India
