Introduction

Consultancy Functions

All projects ideally begin with a market study to determine the best type of spa services to offer to the targeted clientele. A feasibility study follows to determine the economics of implementing the ideal spa, based on the market and the client's objectives. A budget and a projected profit and loss (P&L) will be done. The budget will include: construction costs, furniture fixtures and equipment (F.F.&E.), and the start-up costs such as staff selection, staff training, marketing, product inventory and purchasing, the pre-opening and opening of the spa. The feasibility of doing the project will be presented along with a return on investment (ROI) projection.

Spa Soul can provide a full "turn-key" delivery or intervene partially. We can provide architects and interior designers or we can work jointly with the client's designated team. Based on our extensive worldwide experience, we are particularly attentive to the hidden problems of spa operation such as spatial architectural layout considerations. We will advise both architects and interior designers on the correct spa designing procedures.

Spa Soul is currently conducting these studies for clients worldwide.

After one to three day site inspection is done during which all of the principals of the project are interviewed. construction, equipment, start-up costs, staffing and training expenses, as well as product purchasing will be taken into consideriation. Within two weeks, a comprehensive report is then delivered with recommendations, financial projections, red flags and the overall feasibility of the project.

Conceptualizing & Branding

This phase breaks down into two major parts.

Part One further delineates the concept of the spa, creating a synergistic theme with the spa name, identity, interior design, services, products and distinctive touches in short, all the components of the brand identity.

Part Two provides the architect team with the tools they require to design a layout that is both beautiful and functional, including the square footage requirements and the adjacencies. Each round of plans is reviewed and recommendations are made. Once the plans have been finalized the architect and general contractor are then given a detailed Spec Book.
