Jason Goldberg was propelled in to the spa industry when his family launched the UK’s first spa booking agency in 1989. From a small business run in the back of a garage to a hugely profitable company with a turnover of almost £10 million, SpaSeekers.Com is the country’s longest-standing spa booking agency and showcases the most comprehensive selection of award-winning UK spas and packages.
Established in July 1989 trading as ‘Healthy Venues’, the brand was founded to make spa breaks more accessible to a mass consumer audience. This new customer-base would call for advice on the best-suited venues and receive a selection of brochures of their top suggestions. As business boomed, the company invested in advertising and ‘Healthy Venues’ launched their website with the birth of the digital age in the mid-nineties.
It was at this time that Jason also launched ‘The Beauty Therapist Bible’, a nationwide magazine allowing spa venues to advertise their vacancies, which he later sold to ‘Professional Beauty’ for a healthy profit allowing him to focus on the growth of ‘Healthy Venues’.
As countless upmarket hotels started to realise the development of the spa market, they began investing in their own facilities by building spa and leisure amenities. In the space of just a few years, the ‘Healthy Venues’ portfolio grew to over 250 spa venues and Jason’s fearless determination saw him taking over the family business and re-branding the company to become SpaSeekers.Com in November 2003.
It also found him moving into property where he invested in commercial offices giving the freedom for the company to grow and move, which today operates from a £1.2 million office, with plenty of space for additional expansion.
Despite a family tragedy in 2004, Jason continued to pursue his dream and submerged himself into the business, forming a solid online digital strategy and increasing the team whilst investing into both the website and CRM systems. 2015/16 saw the market share begin to snowball and today the SpaSeeker.Com turnover has grown from £2.5 million in 2014 to almost £10 million – it also has around 500 spa venues currently listed on their website.
2018 is set to be another big and unprecedented year for Jason and his award-winning company who are proud to offer a free booking service, best price guarantee and exclusive spa deals. These exceptional offers continue to place them as the leading supplier of UK spa experiences. Jason also forecasts an exciting future with an abundance of exciting business ventures up his sleeve for both SpaSeekers.Com and his growing property portfolio.
