Banyon Tree Hotel & Resorts, reporting increased revenue at its existing 18 spas despite the unsteady global economy, announced plans for further expansion by the end of 2002.

Six Oberoi Spas by Banyan Tree will open under a management partnership between Banyan Tree and The Oberoi Group, covering India, Indonesia and Mauritius.

  • Point Grace, the luxury boutique hotel on Providenciales, the capital of the Turks & Caicos Islands, has opened a full-service European-style spa. Modeled after the Thalgo Spas in France, the new facility features Thalassotherapy, which uses the properties of seawater and seaweed in a variety of treatments.
  • A new 26,000 square-foot spa combining state-of-the-art technology with Muskogee Creek Indian tradition is set to open March 1. Named the Spa at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation, the Georgia-based facility will use locally-grown herbs and flowers to create a seasonal menu of traditional Creek treatments.
  • Canyon Ranch President and CEO Jerry Cohen recently announced that CR will design and operate the spa, beauty salon, wellness and fitness facilities on board Queen Mary 2, touted as the largest passenger vessel ever constructed. The 150,000-ton ocean liner is scheduled to begin service in 2003.
