Founded by Richa Agarwal – an acclaimed beauty, wellness, makeup, and nutrition consultant – the Cleopatra chain of day spa, beauty, and wellness centres, is a pioneer in India’s Spa and Wellness Industry.
This beauty-journey started in 2003, when Richa Agarwal started her own day spa and wellness centre in Chandigarh, at a time when day spa concept was still unheard of in North India. It was not all roller coaster, as she had her share of challenges and financial constraints. But oozing with grit and confidence, she worked relentlessly and slogged it out passionately. Backed by her unflagging zeal to do something meaningful in the spa, wellness, and beauty arena – within a span of three years, she started five more spa and wellness centres.
In 2008, this charming small-town woman entrepreneur, kicked off India’s first exclusive bridal spa and make-up studio. She followed it up with a spa academy in 2009. And then another swanky spa and wellness centre in Delhi.
Her 13 years’ long journey in this industry is a testimony to her assiduity and sagacity. Her unwavering passion for beauty and wellness business has enabled her to kick off some never-before beauty and spa treatments. She was the first one to introduce the “day spa” concept at a time when even beauty experts had not heard of it.
Of course, it’s no cushy thing to set up eleven beauty and wellness centres within a span of five years. But the passion and toil of the Team Cleopatra made it happen. And the march is on!
