Our Experience, our passion, our heart
The success of Raison d’Etre is no miracle. We are simply passionate about Spas, Wellness and Wellbeing and our team has set out to inspire others with what we deeply believe in. By deciding to work with us, you have chosen a company that not only has almost two decades of knowledge, experience and success in this ever evolving industry, but also the heart and innovative creativity that go with it and has allowed us to create award winning spas and spa brands since 1998, including our own, LivNordic Hotels & Wellbeing.
Raison d’Etre is:
• A Global Think Tank for Spas, Wellness and Wellbeing. Our experience, knowledge and creativity are constantly evolving and are offered to our clients in everything we do.
• Consistent. Many of our creative team members have been growing with us since we started in 1998.
• Highly experienced. After being at the forefront of the spa industry for almost two decades we now have teams members based in Sweden, London, Bangkok, Nice, Athens and New Zealand and connections and resources in the USA, Russia and Asia.
• Successful. We have worked with over 100 spas in more than 60 countries worldwide. We have created 8 renowned spa brands for clients and educated more than 200 spa managers through our spa business education and on-site training programs. Few players in the spa industry can compete with that.
• Not only a spa consulting company. We also own and operate our own spas and have now evolved our brand LivNordic into a Hotel & Wellbeing concept.
• Innovatively creative. We tailor-make spa and wellness concepts and solutions that seamlessly express your visions and dreams.
• Completely independent. We are not tied to any concept, product line or equipment company. As such we can offer you the best solution to fit your situation and will also be able to work with anybody you might be affiliated with, without bias.
• Supportive. Our training and operational support programs go far beyond industry standards.
• Creative. We can tailor make your unique spa or spa brand, just as we did for Kempinski, The Spa and Resense, or we can provide you with our ready made brand: LivNordic Hotels & Wellness.
• Educational. We offer a complete course in Spa management and extensive training in Aroma, Deep Tissue, Detox and Swedish massage. Being a Swedish company, we truly know how to do this correctly. An outstanding massage is the bread and butter of any spa and the most important treatment to offer at a consistently high standard. We also include Spa Managers and spa staff training in our pre-opening operational support.
• Business minded and professional. We deliver high quality Feasibility Studies, Budgets and P&L’s and Business and Human Capital Management Plans as part of our services.
• Balanced. We combine sound business sense with a healing heart in all that we do.
• Flexible. We can help to create and operate your spa via a straightforward consultancy, a management agreement, revenue share or a joint venture.
• Passionate. About life, wellness, service and allowing people to grow to the most authentic level of their own wellbeing.
