    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

                                AsiaSpa magazine is proud to announce the
                             nominations for the fifth year of the AsiaSpa Awards

    Launched in 2005 to give recognition to exceptional spas in the Asia region, the AsiaSpa Awards are the industry’s
    most anticipated annual event.

    Shining a spotlight on the outstanding efforts of individuals and companies within the spa realm, these prestigious
    awards give credit to those driving Asia's increasingly sophisticated spa scene.

    Growing in size each year, in 2009 we are excited to introduce a new ‘Best Children's Spa Menu of the Year'
    category.

    All nominations will be published in AsiaSpa magazine's November/December 2009 issue, with the awards
    evening being celebrated in November. The winners will be announced at the AsiaSpa Awards ceremony on
    November 12 at Hong Kong's Armani Bar, and will be announced in the January/February 2010 issue.
