Development: the new chairman of the company plans its first spa and a series of hotels

Laura Ashley's new chairman has revealed that the company is planning its first spa and a series of hotels abroad.

Andrew Khoo Boo Yeow, 46, who took over from his father last week, is also executive chairman at MUI, owner of 35 percent of the UK home shopping chain.

He told The Mail on Sunday that next year a spa treatment center will open at Laura Ashley's Belsfield hotel in Windermere.

The first overseas hotel will probably be opened on a MUI site in Tasmania or in Asia.

& # 39; The company is making a transformation through, he said.

We want to create a complete lifestyle experience for the brand – from tea shops, food gifts in stores and adding spa's in the hotels.

& # 39; It's all about indulgence – women love to be pampered and take care of their health.

So we want to give them a retreat where they can get away, but tailor-made so that the products they use are addressed by Laura Ashley. & # 39;
