Gaia Spa named Best Destination Spa by Condé Nast Johansens

Gaia Spa at the five-star Boringdon Hall Hotel in Devon is named Best Destination Spa in the UK and Ireland at the 2022 Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence.

Celebrating five years this year, the win is Gaia Spa’s third Condé Nast Johansens award, having previously been named Best Destination Spa in 2017 and 2020.

The annual award winners, which were announced on Monday 8th November, are voted for by the public and celebrate excellence in the spa industry.

Gaia Spa is the flagship spa of South West-based natural skincare and spa brand GAIA Skincare, which boasts a growing portfolio of over 10 spa affiliates across the UK, including Whatley Manor Hotel & Spa in the Cotswolds and Cary Arms in Devon – both of which were also named in this year’s awards for Best for Green Practices & Sustainability and Readers’ Award respectively.

Diane Nettleton, Founder of GAIA Skincare said:

“It’s not only a huge honour to receive such an important industry award for Gaia Spa, but for three of GAIA Skincare’s spa partners to be recognised out of the 18 award categories is a huge boost to morale after a very tricky 18 months for spas all over the world.

“The importance of taking care of one’s physical and mental wellbeing has never been more prevalent than it is now, and we look forward to continuing to provide exceptional nurturing and holistic experiences that support our guests’ wellness, naturally.”
