We understand that no two guests are alike, and it is this belief that inspires us to curate unique experiences, one’s antidote for respite and recharging.”The new Privai | Spa + Salon locations will be managed by ISM SPA and include a partnership with the co-founders’ newest technology innovation, Spa Space, an app which pairs expert licensed providers and stylists to meet customer’s needs. In addition, Privai | Spa + Salon locations will open under the guidance of Anne Melby, who has joined ISM SPA as Senior Vice President and will be responsible for overseeing operations for ISM SPA and all Privai | Spa + Salon locations.
