We are the UK's longest-standing spa booking agency, yet our aim after 25 years remains the same: Finding you the perfect spa experience using our specialist knowledge and award-winning customer service. Here’s our story…
How it began
Our family loved spas so much, we bought the company, as they say.
Back in 1989, our family-run set-up, consisting of mum, dad and a 17-year-old wannabe golf pro (that’s me) began operating “Healthy Venues” from the garage of our Coventry home. We got the idea because mum had decided she wanted to visit a ‘health farm’ but had found it impossible to get information on where she could go. So we decided to set up one of the first specialist agencies in the UK to match the right spas with our customers’ needs. We’re glad to say we’re bigger and better than ever 25 years on!
Right from the start our service has been based on a free booking service and good old-fashioned telephone advice. Not just any advice though – guidance based on first hand experience of our spas – a tradition dating back to when we had just a dozen fantastic spas on our books; we now have over 500! We believe our personal experience is what qualifies us to match what you’re looking for with the ideal spa venue for your individual needs.
How we grew
With continued hard work, dedication, the development of our booking software and website, the company quickly grew during the nineties and in to the Millennium. Our name spread quickly thanks to rave reviews in national newspapers, like the Daily Mail. As an increasing number and variety of dedicated spas sprang up across the UK, hotels also began investing millions developing their spa and leisure facilities. To reflect this exciting change, we made it our priority to promote the growing choice now available to our spa-seeking customers.
Bigger and Better
In 2001 we had outgrown our garage, so we bought our own office providing ample space for future expansion. Conveniently, the office was situated just 50 yards from a swanky wine bar, where many subsequent meetings have taken place! (As you may have gathered, we are not health spa purists, but down-to-earth, life-loving people).
In 2004 we re-branded as ‘SpaSeekers’ expanding our nationwide portfolio of spas and developing our own branded, increasingly popular Pamper Day packages.
What about today?
2014 marks our 25th anniversary (cue the sound of Champagne corks flying!). But we won’t let that go to our heads: We remain more devoted than ever about helping you find that perfect spa experience. Not one to rest on our laurels, I still feel that there is alot to achieve and always welcome your feedback on how we can improve our service.
