- Wayne Dyer

Rianna Riego, Principal of Global SpaVantage, has consulted for and opened several spas ranging from day spas and club/membership spas, to urban hotel spas, resort boutique and mega spas. In the course of her work with the Marriott International and KSL resort groups, she established corporate spa & retail standards, individual spa identity and branding, and assisted in pre-opening, set-up and training of various spa directors in operational and financial management. Rianna performed several financial and operational audits and assisted in turnover/interim management for other spas under the Corporate umbrella, as well as the sister companies - Club Corp and Western Athletic Clubs. In her most recent position as Spa Director for the Spa at La Costa, she honed her skills at union negotiations and managed to increase the local clientele of the spa to 70% of revenues, while producing profit margins in the forties despite decreasing revenues brought on by the economic downturn.    All while laying the foundation for a complete wellness program with the limited resources at hand.

As a Philippine-born spa consultant who has had the advantage of fusing a deep-rooted Filipino background with a keen American know-how, Rianna possesses a duo capacity – a lifetime in the making.   She draws both from her experience of development in American Spa culture, and the first-hand knowledge of the Asian way of life. She is known in the industry for her resourcefulness and attention to detail, ability to streamline operations and increase profit margins, passion to create and maintain high service standards, and an unmatched ability to influence and develop future leaders of the industry.  With this prolific operational background and proven track record, Rianna brings a dedication for recommendations based on current best practices and years of personal and professional experience.



At the center of Global SpaVantage is the simplicity of inspiration.  Dedicated to fusing spa tradition while staying in tune with the fluid movement of growth, Global SpaVantage is committed to providing years of knowledge and experience to the development and growth of spa awareness.
