SHENKHA – is a Dubai based Spa Project Development & Spa Management company founded in 1997 by Miriam Seferian.  She was born in Montreal, Canada and raised in a multi-cultural environment. The richness in the diverse cultures her family and city offered, set her on a journey to explore her roots.  This lead to discovering her innate talent in architectural design and deepened passion for Spa & Well-Being, whilst developing her business internationally.

SHENKHA officially launched in 2001, and since, has been successfully offering Turn-Key Spa Development solutions as well as being an integral part of every Spa project Miriam & her team have the pleasure of being involved in.

SHENKHA’s strengths are not limited to the creativity that is required in developing a Spa Concept & Design.  This is generously complimented by a strong understanding of, and extensive hands-on experience in, Spa & Wellness business development and management.  It is with this keen in-depth understanding of the core business behind the concept that clearly differentiates Miriam in her industry.

“In the past 20 years I have had incredible opportunities to work on projects in so many different parts of the world.  All have been tremendous learning experiences in my career and for my own personal growth.  Being based in Dubai was a strategic choice, leading SHENKHA to be considered as an innovative Spa & Well-Being Project Development company here in the heart of a global hub.”

SHENKHA’s creative processes embrace cultural richness and the natural elements provided by a Spa’s location.   “Emphasizing these factors is vital to the success of every project, as these are the core details that lead towards the birth of a Bespoke concept for every client.”

Miriam’s acquired years of experience in Spa design has proven to allow her to confidently work with and guide internationally recognized Architects, Interior Designers & professionals in the Branding industry all of whom she has established strong professional relationships with over the years.

“My career choice is more than just something I do for a living, it reflects my lifestyle.  Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure to have met and worked with many wellness & holistic care professionals from whom I’ve learned so much.   Their teachings,  have allowed me to experience a tremendous change in my health and perspective on life. My daily practices of Meditation, Yoga & Pilates have lead me to a greater understanding of what healthy, joy filled & peaceful living really mean.  I’ve been able to cultivate a deep connection with who I am and am experiencing life fulfillment in all that unfolds before me.  My main objective is to bring this knowledge and awareness to the work I do and to share it with those around me.”
