ASWA Wellness Solutions was founded by wellness retreat and spa pioneer Angela Derks, who has drawn on her 25+ years at the forefront of the industry to curate the perfect framework for business success of wellness strategy and training services for the retreat and spa sector.
As spas and wellness grow ever closer, wellness retreats and spas around the world are beginning to appreciate the need to incorporate wellbeing elements into their offering, from concept and design stage, signature wellness experiences, meditation and mindfulness to resilience and broader lifestyle guidance.
Meanwhile, customers are accessing wellbeing information on their own devices and demanding that their wellness professionals possess greater depth of knowledge to help them to integrate wellbeing into their own daily life styles.
ASWA Wellness Solutions can help with all of this, with solutions that can be customised to the needs of bespoke wellness retreats to small, medium, large and multi-chain wellness spas. Our wellness technology also means you can access training sessions content from work, at home, or on-the-go!
We have worked with award-winning companies such as Six Senses Spas, Ma’in Springs Oman, Sharq Village Qatar, Erawan Destination Retreat, Soneva Fushi Resort and Spa, Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat, Green Leaf Group, Aurora Spa, and more!

The Australasian Sustainable Wellness Academy is the Wellness industry’s education leader. I can honestly say that I would not be the successful manager I am today without the guidance, support and knowledge Angela provided me with. Her extensive knowledge of operations and strategic planning, combined with adaptable teaching methods have stayed with me and when I come across a new challenge, I often refer back to the ASWA business resources for support. I do not know a stronger, more passionate or experienced driver of change and her commitment to moving the spa industry forward is unlike anything I have ever come across.
