Ingo Schweder, founder and CEO of GOCO Hospitality, comments: "GOCO Spa Venice is our first GOCO Spa in Europe, and we have invested over two years of preparation into its opening. We are therefore delighted that after such a short time we have been able to convince an international expert jury of our distinct and innovative approach."
SENSES, the international health and lifestyle guide, has served as a barometer for the world's finest spas, most exclusive destinations, and most outstanding gourmet restaurants for the past 20 years. Award nominees are only able to enter upon special invitation by the SENSES jury, and are judged on a variety of criteria including number of treatments in the spa, quality of service, compliance with standards, and more. Previous winners in the same category were: Kurhaus Cademario Hotel & Spa and THE SPA im Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof.
