Among the additions are more than 15 Shine Spas for Sheraton; an Iridium Spa, the exclusive brand for St. Regis properties, will open at the St. Regis Lhasa Resort in Lhasa in December; Explore Spa by Le Meridien will be unveiled next year at both the Oran property in Algeria and Le Meridien Pyramids in Egypt, with other conversions and new-builds in development. The number of Heavenly Spas by Westin will double from 20 to 40 within two years, and 10 more Away Spas by W Hotels also are in the works.
