Modern Asian style—whether it’s in a spa, hotel, restaurant or shop—is to combine the indigenous with the cutting edge, to seamlessly blend the many cultures reflecting the makeup of that part of the world today. The key ingredient is service—it is attentive, caring, personalized and never, ever just by the numbers. In my experiences in Bangkok and Hong Kong, making every guest and client feel seen, heard, understood and embraced was achieved 99% of the time among service providers, and this worthwhile and important goal is a distinct atmosphere American spas should strive for as well.
