Through-out the devleopment stages, Miriam ensures not only that her expectations are met, but more importantly, that her clients expectations are met first and foremost.

Her strengths are not limited to the creative vision required in Spa Concept & Design Development. This is generously complimented by a strong understanding of, and extensive hands-on experience in, Spa & Wellness business development and management.

 “I work on every project as if it were mine to open and operate. I take into serious consideration every aspect of my clients’ investment. I ensure every staff member that cooperates within the Spa has the required expertise and attitude to proficiently express the values behind the concept in the work they do ”

It is with this keen in-depth understanding of the core business and end-user expectation that clearly differentiates Miriam in her industry. 

My career choice is so much more than just what I do for a living.  It reflects my way of “Being” in the world.

My objective is of course acheiving the overall success of my clients' business objectives.  WIth this there is also the opportunity to create a positive impact in the lives of others. To create spaces where people can reconnect with their inner selves,. To inspire people to want to take better care of themselves abd live better lives."

Miriam Seferian.


Miriam Seferian, Founder & CEO of Shenkha, has dedicated the past 21 years of her career to developing Bespoke Spa Concepts & Designs.
Born and raised in Montreal, Canada, the richness in the diverse cultures her family and city offered, instilled in her a curiosoty to explore her roots whilst developing her business. This set her on a journey which has lead her to where she is today.

“When I first left my home town of Montreal in 2001, my intention was to bring fresh new ideas to Spas around the world.   I had no idea the journey that awaited me was one of introspection and self discovery.  My travels guided me towards a deeper understanding of life and this brought me to an authentic expression of myself not only in my personal life but more importantly in how I conduct the work I do.  I discovered a passion and my innate talent in architecture & interior design, through which, I realised, could be a chanel that I could use to inspire a sense of well-being in others. This journey has lead me to be where I am today.”. 

In early 2007, SHENKHA made the choice to expand its services internationally and entered new markets such as the Maldives Islands, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Russia, Georgia, Yalta, Libya, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates.

Having worked on projects in such diverse locations allowed her to gain extensive knowledge in the various cultural needs of each Country.   This gave her the opportunity to meet and work with internationally recognised Architects, Interior Designers & Contractors, playing an integral role in the project development processes, and guiding them forward with her vision and expertise.

Shenkha is rooted in the appreciation of space, culture and time

Each environment is created holding balance in architecture, space functionality and surprise in design.
