What’s a great spa experience?

Something customers tell their friends about. An experience that’s pleasing to all the senses, with music and scent that builds a relaxed and positive atmosphere, making customers feel peaceful and comfortable. It elevates a brand to distinction, with the atmosphere of all sites harmonising in unison. Ultimately it improves your bottom line.

Creating a standout spa experience isn’t so easy.

But that’s where we can help. Music isn’t all we know, but it’s in our soul, and when blended with tech and our knowledge of behavioural science we create branded spa experiences that sync perfectly in tune with your business objectives.

With our music for spas, we’re lucky to work with some of the biggest and best hospitality and leisure brands in the world, from high-street chains to high-end hideouts to eclectic independents. Whether you’re looking to influence brand perception, increase customer spend or boost employee productivity, our team has the expertise to drive your objectives and make your spas sing.

Behavioural Science in action, in the spa.

The Von Restorff Effect predicts that an item that stands out from the rest is more likely to be remembered than others. Being distinctive makes brands memorable. This may sound obvious, but it is so often ignored. Resist the temptation to follow the herd, as your messaging will get lost in a sea of sameness. There is no safety in numbers, and if you’re doing something very similar and indistinguishable from your competitor, then how can the consumer tell the difference?

Tell me more, tell me more - What does a great spa experience look like?

Taking something that can be seen as a commodity and turning it into a major driving factor to your bottom line. It’s getting music and atmosphere on your team and in all your locations.

Picture a music experience that doesn’t over power the senses, where the curated, meditative tracks are the perfect accompaniment to the spa’s ambience; an ideal escape from a busy life. The sounds of the spa are as important as the other sensory experiences and should be something you notice the moment you walk in, enhancing the tranquil atmosphere but not drowning out the soothing sound of the bubbles in the jacuzzi.

We call it music+.

Atmosphere monitoring.

With Startle's first-of-its-kind atmosphere monitoring tool, you can gain invaluable insight into how the environment of your spas changes over time. And more importantly, how this impacts areas like sales, footfall and other customer behaviours. By bringing data on your locations’ busyness, energy, temperature and local weather together in one place, you can get a better view than ever of how they measure up - whether comparing by time, daypart, or site to site.
