Dragonfly opens first outlet in Hong Kong

New therapeutic retreat features a fusion of Asian massage techniques and ambience.

Dragonfly Therapeutic Retreat launch on Thursday its first outlet in Hong Kong. The Dragonfly Foot Spa, located inside Novotel Century Hotel in Wan Chai, offers locals, tourists and business travellers more choice for a relaxing massage, an Invest Hong Kong report said.

The company, which started in Shanghai in February 2003, focusing on a market of busy international travellers and foreign expatriates living in Shanghai. Since then it has grown from a single shop to a popular chain with 17 locations throughout China and overseas in Dubai, UAE. It has deep roots in China and also a strong desire to expand internationally.

The Founder and the Chief Executive Officer of Dragonfly Therapeutic Retreat, Mr Georgie Yam, said, "Shanghai is far away from Hong Kong, Macau and Guangdong and so it makes logistic sense for us to use Hong Kong as a convenient base from which to manage shops in neighbouring Macau as well as Guangdong, given the linguistic links and easy overland transportation."

"Hong Kong's efficient transportation network offers easy access to nearby cities like Guangzhou and Macau. We are very pleased to welcome Dragonfly which recognises the potential of Hong Kong as a strategic base for its business expansion in Southern China and at the same time, access to a diversified customer base of locals, visiting tourists and business travellers who appreciate finer things in life. We look forward to assisting the company's future expansion in Hong Kong," said Mr Simon Galpin, Director-General of Investment Promotion at Invest Hong Kong.
