The view from the lounge in the Chandler Day Spa

We have already gotten to work on our new Chandler Day Spa. The architect has begun working on the plan and we have created a page on our website dedicated to the new Chandler Day Spa. On Monday we are meeting with engineers to look at HVAC and mechanical plans. We put a big banner in the window that has our logo so if you get a chance to stop by the center you won’t be able to miss our suite!

If you stop by the Chandler day spa be sure to walk around to the back and take a look at the lake! When you are sitting in the lounge of the Chandler day spa and looking out the window, you will feel like you are in Hawaii! Keep an eye on our blog for the latest information.

Hawaiian Experience Day Spa, based in Scottsdale Arizona, has signed a lease for a second day spa located in The Boardwalk at Anderson Springs, at Ray and Dobson Roads, in Chandler, Arizona.

New Chandler Location of Hawaiian Experience Day Spa

4/13/11 – (Chandler, Arizona) Hawaiian Experience Day Spa, based in Scottsdale, AZ has signed a lease to open a second location. The new Hawaiian Experience Day Spa will be located in The Boardwalk at Anderson Springs at Ray and Dobson Roads in Chandler, Arizona. The new location is over 2,300 square feet, nearly double the size of the day spa’s Scottsdale, Arizona location. Hawaiian Experience Spa will be completely renovating the existing Chandler space in order to transform it into a Hawaiian oasis in the desert. Construction will begin as soon as possible with completion and opening of the spa slated for mid-summer.

Hawaiian Experience Spa’s co-owner and licensed massage therapist, Steve Ibach, talks about the spa’s future plans.

“We are very excited about opening our second day spa and would like to say, “mahalo nui loa (thank you very much)” to all of our clients as well as our wonderful therapists for helping to make this happen. Our therapists truly care about the needs of our clients and we truly care about the needs of both our therapists and our clients. We believe that forms an ohana (family) and fosters a level of quality and caring service that is not commonly found in many day spa’s and massage clinics.

The new Chandler day spa will be managed by myself, my co-owner and wife Cathy Ibach, and our son Mike Ibach. We will be providing the same level of exceptional service in the Chandler day spa that our clients have grown to expect from our Scottsdale day spa. Our members will be able to visit either or both locations as the two locations will be totally integrated. Client’s will be able to use our online booking system to make appointments at either location, and we will offer the same extensive line of services in Chandler that we offer in Scottsdale.

We also hope to open a third spa over the next 12 months and begin selling day spa franchise’s to qualified entrepreneurs who want to open their own Hawaiian Experience Day Spa and share in the success!”
