Dorset Tourism Gold Spa & Wellbeing business hopes to win more accolades in SW Tourism Awards

[image]Dorset based Yoga teacher and Holistic Therapist Saira Francis is involved in something of a "David and Goliath" fight as she and her business Mellulah Therapy & Yoga Retreats goes up against some well-known finalists in the prestigious South West Tourism Awards. These are taking place on 1 February at the Riviera International Conference Centre, Torquay and the Award for Spa & Wellbeing Experience of the Year is up for grabs!

Mellulah, which offers retreats across Rural Dorset, is the only Dorset business in this category to have reached the South West

Running since 2011, this approachable business won Gold in the 2017/18 Dorset Tourism Awards, a particularly impressive feat as it was the first time Mellulah had ever entered the Awards. The judges made a special mention of Saira's ability to create a warm and inviting environment for retreaters to relax and let go of daily stresses.

They were really impressed to discover Saira's "holistic and traditional approach to yoga that caters for all abilities alongside healthy, locally sourced vegan meals and blissful meditation and relaxation, in beautiful quiet settings around North and West Dorset."

With five businesses vying for Gold, Silver and Bronze in this popular sector, including Peter de Savary's Cary Arms in Devon and last year's Silver winners Lucknam Park Hotel & Spa in Wiltshire, Saira says she is over-joyed to be among such well-known names.

The judges will have examined all aspects of what's on offer, and with glowing testimonials from clients like Catty Lowsley-Williams from Blandford who commented, "Mellulah yoga is some of the best yoga I have found anywhere. I have been lucky enough to practice yoga all over the world with some wonderful yogis. Saira is unquestionably one of the best teachers I've encountered. She has huge integrity and humility. How lucky I am to have found her," there is no doubting that Mellulah provides a fantastic customer experience.

As well as running day and weekend residential retreats, Saira Francis offers regular weekly yoga classes in and around the Blandford area as well as holistic therapy and spa days.
