Founded by Richa Agarwal, an acclaimed wellness and nutrition consultant; and Ritu Kolentine, a Canada based cosmetologist, and a USA certified international make-up artist – the Cleopatra chain of day spa, beauty, and wellness centres, is a pioneer in India's Spa and Wellness Industry.
How It All Started?
This beauty journey started in 2003, when Richa Agarwal and Ritu Kolentine, the young, dynamic, and charming sisters - started their own day spa and wellness centre in Chandigarh. It was not at all roller coaster. They had their share of challenges as well as financial constraints, but they slogged it out passionately. Backed by their unflagging zeal to do something meaningful in the spa, wellness, and beauty arena; within a span of three years, they started five more spa and wellness centres. And in 2007, the two ever-smiling small-town women entrepreneurs, headed for Mumbai. In 2008, they came up with India’s first exclusive bridal spa and make-up studio. They followed it up with a spa academy in 2009. And then another swanky span and wellness centre in Delhi!
Their ten-year long journey in this industry is a testimony to their assiduity and sagacity. Their unwavering passion for beauty and wellness business has enabled them to kick off some never-before beauty and spa treatments. They were the first one to introduce the “day spa” concept at a time when even beauty experts hadn’t heard of it.
Well, it’s no cushy thing to set up eleven beauty and wellness centres within a span of five years. The count is on, as they are marching on!
