1320 Broadway, Tacoma
Jennifer “Jen” Koval, new owner of SAVI Day Spa in Tacoma, loves helping clients feel pampered, cared for and relaxed in this hectic world. She worked at SAVI for six years before acquiring the business from the previous owners in December 2011. “They knew how much I loved and valued SAVI,” said Koval. “One of the first things we wanted to do was make sure our clients knew they would receive the identical level of service from the same staff.”
A “brand refresh” integrated the spa’s relationship with Hotel Murano, with which the spa shares its address of 1320 Broadway Plaza in downtown Tacoma. This collaboration enhances both businesses. Hotel guests are offered spa treatment packages and spa guests can share in the hotel’s happy hour. You can partake in a SAVI mini service, starting at only $15, while enjoying drink and appetizer specials from the hotel.
Every SAVI experience begins with a warm welcome, the offer of tea or water, and a neck roll. A comforting robe, soft music, and candlelight add to the ambience. Enjoy a customized facial, body treatment, massage and more. Continuing education keeps SAVI’s 14 employees trained in the use of the latest and greatest products and techniques.
Koval’s spirit of giving to improve lives extends to the community too, continuing the spa’s outreach through donations and volunteering. The new owner plans to become more personally involved with auctions and other events to which SAVI donates. It’s all part of her attitude of gratitude. “Since I was young, I’ve always wanted to own my own spa,” Koval said. “So this has been an amazing dream come true for me.”
