Rafflesia Spa Essentials (RSE), a wholesale and retail unit of Rafflesia Wellness Sdn Bhd (formerly known as Rafflesia Spa Sdn Bhd) and a member of MAWSPA, opened officially for business on Aug 27 at Lot B2-11, Block B, Warisan Square, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
On hand to grace the auspicious occasion was Yang Berhormat Datuk Masidi Manjun, State Minister of Tourism, Culture and Environment.
Speaking at the ceremony, Datuk Masidi congratulated RSE for moving from offering wellness treatment to coming out with its own product line. “It is a very commendable initiative and I hope that the company will look at the abundant local resources and herbs in their future production,” he encouraged.
RSE aspires to be a one-stop wholesale and retail centre and a consultant for those wishing to start up a spa business. It also targets to become a preferred choice destination for individual shoppers looking for typical spa products such as aromatherapy, natural bath gel, body scrubs and lotion, face masks, essential and fragrance oils. The spa products are sold under the company’s very own label, Rafflesia, a registered trademark owned by RSE.
In addition to spa products, RSE also offers spa equipment, accessories and furnishings.
A spa and wellness entity with a 2-star rating by the Ministry of Tourism Malaysia, Rafflesia Wellness Sdn Bhd has a Balinese-themed day spa which started operations in 2010. With the opening of RSE, the company now has an integrated business chain.
