Going back to nature is the latest business mantra. All upcoming ventures try to give back what they have taken away from nature; it attracts new customers. Spatality is a novel concept; it will offer a home for elephants that have been decreasing in number. It will be a dream destination for animal lovers; who want to spend their holidays amidst the homeland of the most impressive animal, the giant yet calm elephants. The project is the thought process of the celebrated artist Mr. Gregory Colbert’s; his fascination with elephants is evident from his world famous photograph exhibitions Ashes & Snow. The artist wants to give people a lifetime experience of an international wellness resort and an elephant sanctuary combined into one. As an investor I would like to invest in this innovative venture but it would depend on the place selected for the project. South East Asia has countries like Singapore, Thailand and Philippines; the country that attracts more tourists will definitely be a good prospect. Elephant trekking is very famous in Thailand; it is home to some stunning coast lines and beaches. A place like Khao So National Park or the quiet village Pai in Thailand can be an ideal place for Spatiality.
Ko Chang is another famous tourist destination in Thailand and it is called an elephant island. A separate island can also be a very apt serene place where elephants can be inhabited in their natural environment. Spatality is a place to relax and connect to nature. The Spa facility in Thailand is world famous; the staffing agenda of Spatiality is solved. The native people are experts in the spa industry.
Spatality aims to offer exclusive world-class spa and accommodation facility; such properties are meant for a particular customer segment. The prices charged would be affordable only to a few elite. Spatality is not a regular fun holiday spot. It is once in a lifetime leisure stay for those who want the break to be relaxing, calm and rejuvenating. Through the pictures given in the business plan, it is clear that it is more of a spiritual and reconnecting to nature concept. The proposed permanent art museum that will showcase the original art work of Mr. Gregory Colbert’s and the facility of art workshops is heaven for an art connoisseur. Only an art, animal and nature lover will understand the viability of Spatality.
The projected number of 50 rooms and guest houses is perfect for a start as it will maintain its exclusivity. Spatality will provide all this without disturbing the habitat of the elephants that are the main reason behind Spatality. For any project to be successful experienced leadership and management is a must. The experience of Mr. Ingo Shweder in the spa industry will help the resort I going forwards with its dream plan. Since the resort is an opportunity for Mr Gregory to bring back the honor to the magnificent elephant, the design of the resort should be similar to the elephant habitat. Luxury tree houses will attract tourists, they can watch the elephants from their rooms; elephants love greenery and water sources along trees. An artificial rivulet with green pastures and the spa can be located along the green pastures covered by glass to avoid disturbing the animals. It will be a breathtaking experience to enjoy spa and watch the humble giant pass by. Elephants love recognizing themselves in the mirror placing mirrors at some distance will a fun experience for the elephant and the tourist. The spa products can bank on their natural contents found in the destination, Thailand. The philosophy that the spa products can promote is the promise to offer products that stand for purity and pearly whiteness of the God of Elephants “Erawan.”
