Bath spa manager scoops prestigious accolade

A spa manager from a luxury Bath hotel spa has claimed a coveted title at the Boutique Hotelier Awards 2018.

Kabir Aliri, who heads up the award-winning Spa Village at the five-star Gainsborough Bath Spa, scooped the Spa Manager of the Year award at the annual ceremony, which aims to recognise and reward staff excellence within the hospitality sector. 

Recognised for his hands-on approach and minute attention to detail, Kabir has led the spa's 31-strong team to a number of impressive successes since its opening in 2015, including wins in both the Condé Nast Traveller Readers' Travel Awards and Tatler Spa Awards. 

“We had a record number of nominations this year, with all winners and finalists thoroughly deserving their place in the awards,” comments Zoe Monk, editor of Boutique Hotelier. “Kabir impressed the judges with his attention to detail and savvy approach to maintaining standards at The Gainsborough Bath Spa, which is widely known as one of the best in the business.”
