L'Occitane plans expansion in India

The natural skincare and beauty brand, L'Occitane is all set

The natural skincare and beauty brand, L’Occitane is all set to gear up on the expansion
plans. The company has tied up with Devi Resorts to make an entry in the spa market.
According to the company, India is on its top list to make a mark in the spa market. It
already has three stores in the country and has plans to open four more by the end of this
year. Internationally L’Occitane spas are present on the high-streets, in stores and resorts.
The idea of opening the spa in the country is to extend the entire experience to Indian
customers as well.

The company is using the L’Occitane signature treatments along with local ingredients
from Rajasthan. The aim is to bring the concept of Indian and Mediterranean well-being.

“Devi Ratn resort will have a 20,000 sq ft spa, making it one of the largest in the country.
The Rasa resort, adjacent to a wildlife reserve and sharing a boundary with the 400-year-
old Amer fort, will have 500 sq ft luxury tents with private spa pavilions,” says Rajnish
Sabharwal, president, Boutique Hotels India.

Sanghvi Brands has been given the master franchise to operate the spas by L’Occitane in
India. “We intend to launch at least five spas in India over the next 24 months covering
metros and tourist destinations,” says Darpan Sanghvi, MD, Sanghvi Brands.
