Welcome to The SPA on King!
The SPA on King was named one of spAWARDS Top 50 Spas in
Canada for 2012.
The SPA on King has been recognized for excellence in the health and wellness industry by receiving the Top 50 Spas in Canada spAWARD.
“Thank you spAWARDS! We are very proud of our small business. Each aspect of our spa has been thought out carefully and executed passionately; from the selection of our wonderful skin care lines, to the time and care spent on each client as an individual, to the wonderful people we employ as staff. We are very honoured to have received this award.” -Gillian da Silva, owner The SPA on King.
The “best of” spAWARDS were created to highlight the success and
accomplishments of the top names in the industry. Striving to act as a guide
for consumers, the spAWARDS categories were designed to help facilitate
informed decisions when choosing a spa or health and wellness center.
The 2012 Canadian winners were selected from a pool of more than 500 potential nominations. Criteria for the awards include website creativity, ease in booking appointments, online reservations, gift cards or loyalty programs, innovative spa treatments, unique marketing programs and overall guest satisfaction.
Nominations for the spAWARDS are accepted from May through December, with winners announced in February and March.
“Winning a spAWARD is a remarkable achievement in this industry,” says Roger Sholanki, CEO of spa software company Book4Time.
“It shows you are a trusted brand with an innovative approach to business.”
The spAWARDS was founded by John McDonald, COO of Book4Time in 2010. This year marks the
second annual competition for the “best-of-the-best” in Canada. Additional information about the SpAWARDS can be found on the awards website:
