Sirimangklajarn road, Chiang Mai, Thailand
50m2 per floor x three floors
since April 2011
Busy main road location in rapidly developing tourist area adjacent the Nimmen tourist trap
Traditional 3 storey shop house style. ground floor is reception, kitchen and 4 foot massage chairs. middle floor is thai massage and private double oil massage room. top floor two private double rooms and bathroom
We are a niche mid range boutique spa. We have two top end places near us which have never impacted on our market. There are no other mid range places in the immediate vicinity. There are a few cheap massage shops around but our standards and quality has never given us any cause for concern from that competition.
Physical expansion of the premises is limited. We lived on the top floor for 3 years but realised we needed the room for customers. We converted the room into another private room and small sauna. However growth of the business can easily be exploited with advertising. We have never paid for advertising other than our own website and facebook page.
There is no living accomodation at present although we lived there ourselves for 3 years. The room we converted can of course be converted back but it brings good revenue as a massage room.
We have acquired the now pre requisite health authority standards and certification for 6 years. Measures addressed included fire extinguishers, fire alarm bell. first aid,signage, management and customer procedures, emergency floodlights.
1 the owner has worked single handedly as receptionist and manager but we have employed three receptionists, one for 36 months, one for 6 months and one for 4 months during the last 8 years
11am-9pm but if customers arrive at 8,30 then we are open until midnight.
We are willing to dedicate some time helping and ensuring a smooth transition, in particular with operations and procedures and the point of sale computer system
Quite simply my wife is mentally and physically tired and needs a rest after 8 years working very hard and often long hours. We now want to spend our time together and develop our own house into a guesthouse, the house which I built myself entirely with income generated from the spa.
