Spa People: 20th anniversary issue
Cary & Kim Collier

Living in Java and Bali in the 90s inspired us beyond words


What are your career highlights?
We were blessed to live and work in Java and Bali in the 90s. We learned about living in beautiful cultures, nature, community and family. We didn’t believe we’d have children until the Balinese helped us think otherwise… thankfully.

It completely changed our thinking about designing spas and inspired us beyond words.

What major innovations can you identify?
There have been so many, thank goodness! Integrating indoor/outdoor spa experiences (learned in Bali and Thailand) has been key. And we’re starting to see communal bathing models making a comeback – clients thought we were nuts when we suggested these 10 years ago!

What do you wish had been invented?
Biosuit: an organic material for bathing that disintegrates after four hours. It would save laundry costs, be functional but also amusing and look fantastic. Issue: spontaneous nudity may occur after those four hours!

Birthday message to Spa Business

"Spa Business is our most relied-upon resource for global wellness and spa news, education and connections. The people behind it are incredibly talented and wonderful humans"

More from spa industry leaders...

In celebration of Spa Business’ 20th anniversary, industry leaders take a look at how far the sector has come since the magazine’s inception in 2003, share personal career highlights and reveal their plans and ideas for the future.
