Before founding Essential Escapes in 2002, Emma Spitzer worked for one of the UK’s leading marketing alliances, Great Hotels of the World. In 2000, she launched their first spa directory, The Great Spa Hotels of the World, after travelling extensively around the globe visiting some of the world’s top spa destinations and resorts. Her great spa travelling adventure continues in a permanent quest to find new hotels.
Emma gained business development experience at a top six advertising agency before leaving to follow her first love – travel – where she spent a year travelling through South East Asia, New Zealand, Australia, the South Pacific and the Americas.
After becoming a mum in 2005, the new quest became to find the best spa resorts with second-to-none kids facilities so she, and all parents alike could continue to enjoy the luxury spa holidays that had been enjoyed so much!
Emma is a contestant in TV’s popular MasterChef 2015 series, drawing culinary inspiration from some of the gourmet meals that she has enjoyed at Tots Too hotels around the world. Watch this space!
