Royal Onsen, the luxury spa nestled in the heart of Bradford, West Yorkshire, extended its warm embrace to those seeking solace and relaxation in trying times.

In a heartfelt gesture of compassion and solidarity, Royal Onsen opened its doors to refugees in the West Yorkshire area, offering them a day of pampering and rejuvenation, completely free of charge.

The event, aptly named “Luxurious Refuge,” aimed to provide a sanctuary of peace and tranquillity for individuals who have endured hardships and challenges in their journey to find safety and security.

Amidst the serene ambiance of Royal Onsen’s exquisite facilities, refugees were treated to a bespoke spa experience designed to alleviate stress, restore vitality, and instil a sense of well-being.

“We believe that everyone deserves to experience moments of serenity and self-care, regardless of their circumstances,” said Maryam Iqbal, the founder and CEO of Royal Onsen.

“Luxurious Refuge is our way of giving back to the community and offering a moment of respite to those who have faced adversity. It’s about nurturing both the body and the spirit.”

The day-long event featured an array of indulgent treatments, including luxurious massages, soothing baths, and access to the spa’s renowned facilities. Each guest was greeted with warmth and hospitality, ensuring they felt cherished and valued throughout their time at Royal Onsen.

“We are incredibly grateful to Royal Onsen for their generosity and kindness,” expressed one of the attendees, a refugee from a war-torn region.

Inayah Sher from the Sisters of Shukr group in Bradford said “This experience has been truly transformative, allowing these lovely ladies to momentarily escape the challenges of their reality and embrace a sense of peace.”

Luxurious Refuge exemplifies Royal Onsen’s commitment to social responsibility and community engagement.

By opening its doors to those in need, the Spa hopes to inspire others to embrace compassion and empathy in their own lives, fostering a culture of inclusivity and support.
