I am delighted to announce the UK and Rest of the World winners of the 2015 ila Therapist of the Year Awards.
Now into its fourth year running, the awards recognise the talented brand ambassadors who share ila’s philosophy of ethical integrity, positivity and respect for nature in spa and beauty treatments. Candidates for the awards must have shown a thirst for growth and development, not just for themselves, but also for the organic beauty industry in general.
Each year I am always so touched by the number of applications we receive, and I read every single application that we are sent, it’s a glorious part of my job to hear how therapists have embraced ila into their life’s and the passion they have for the treatments that they perform day after day is just extraordinary.
After four years of running the awards I have seen a vast rise in the number of truly outstanding and exceptional therapists that are implementing a greater level of wellness and mindfulness in their treatments and attitude.
It was a difficult job to choose the winners this year as we had some incredible entries but I am happy to announce that this year’s UK winner was Violaine Besnard from Whatley Manor and the winners for the Rest of the World are Tsering Dolkar from Raas Jodhpur and Tenzin Lhamo from Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru, Ms Lolrintluangi from Club Med Finolhu picked up the runner up prize.
I was lucky enough to present Violaine Besnard from Whatley Manor with her prize this week, I was utterly blown away by the detail and effort that Violaine had put into her entry, and it was an absolute joy to receive. The love and admiration that Violiane has for ila shone through her entry and I am elated to have such an excellent ambassador of ila, a well-deserved winner.
ABOUT THE WINNERS
Tsering Dolkar - Raas Jodhpur
Tsering’s application displayed such a deep level of understanding about ila and the philosophy, her energy and positive attitude has been such a huge support at Raas Jodhpur. She is a magnificent therapist and we are very lucky to have Tsering as an ila ambassador.
Tenzin Lhamo - Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru
Tenzin is an extremely sincere and dedicated therapist, her key achievements speak for themselves with being the best retail seller and top performing ila treatment therapist in 2015! Her application was very heartfelt and her love of ila truly shone through.
Ms Lolrintluangi - Club Med Finolhu
Joining at a time of pre-opening can be extremely overwhelming but Rini was an enormous support to the team. Rini’s professional manner and confidence shone through her application, she is a superb ila ambassador and a well-deserved runner up.
While presenting the award to Whatley Manor this week we discussed the upcoming Wellbeing Day that I am hosting on the 27th June, it is set to be a wonderful event with a mindful short walk along the beautiful gardens, demonstration on how to make your own ila bath salts, a sound healing exercise as well as a wonderful lunch and spa treatment. There are still a few places available and I would love to see you there. http://www.whatleymanor.com/wellbeing-day-with-founder-denise-leicester-ila-spa/
