Owner and founder of Planet Beach Stephen Smith aspired to provide an oasis of tranquility where patrons could discover luxurious ways to stay healthy while fostering a positive self-image. By staying true to those principles, the spa flourished in popularity, growing to more than 300 franchises across the world and helping people look and feel shinier than all the bottle rockets in the sky. Now offering a full-fledged cornucopia of services, Stephen aims to revolutionize the spa experience through a slew of cutting-edge, self-automated technology such as the Aqua Massage bed and Autobronzer. Other services such as energy-boosting oxygen therapy paired with aromatherapy, as well as weight-management programs, facials, and guided meditation, assure Stephen’s dream of creating a spa that offers holistic opportunities to relax, renew, and stay healthy.
