Segerberg, an international spa professional, elaborates that spa guests have the opportunity to take time to listen to their souls and bodies. Malaysians are no exception. According to Spa Industry Profile Malaysia 2002-2007, Intelligent Spas has identified spa numbers in Malaysia have grown over 200% since 2002, identifying 151 spas currently operating and 25 spas under development (Clark, 2005).

Besides, the increasing interest in traditional massage treatment was most current industry trend observed by spa owners and managers. In addition 26% of spa surveyed stated that there was increased customers awareness about spas. Today beauty industries are very much different than earlier time. Nowadays, most women are working and their career nowadays same level as men. Therefore, they are really giving emphasis to appearance, health, and pleasant personality. They are constantly looking to improve what they have or give themselves a whole new look start from the root of the hair to the tip of their toes. They drop by the nearest hair salon and spa to be pampered by stylists and beauticians to style their hair, massage their body, and get the manicure and pedicure treatment even using lots of cash, and an hour in a beauty salon every month. It is no wonder that hair salon and spa business remains one of the rapidly growing industries today. The successful hair salon and spa business is one that offers excellent service, use quality products, and provide an enjoyable atmosphere at an acceptable price. According to industry insiders, the growing popularity of day spas account for the increase in sales on the hair and salon industry. However, to succeed as an industry is not an easy as there is many problems and difficulties to be overcome especially in Islamic entrepreneur. In Islamic basis, there are a lot of things to consider such as the using of beauty products either halal or non-halal and they should consider about the services offered meets the Muslims needs. Moreover, the important of Islamic beauty salon and the difference between Islamic and normal beauty salon is the design of the space planning itself which is closed and hidden from non-muhrim’s view. In addition, they must ensure that all their employees are women and better they hire Muslim women employees as an Al-Quran said, Islam does not forbid women to beautify themselves, but it must be moderate and does not exceed Islamic limits. As the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) used to make this prayer: “Oh Allah! You made my appearance beautiful so make my conduct excellent.” Malaysia holistic spa has its own specialties to offer in order to compete with neighbours like Indonesia and Thailand, and began to challenge them which they are now is dominating our local spaindustry markets. Most of Malaysian Holistic Spas are using Islamic Spa Practice (ISP). Applying the ISP concept is not only on the services offered but also in an execution of business operations including the use of verses of the holy Quran which was also seen further streamline the country’s image as a medium for the concept of halal industry. Besides, spa service, beauty therapist segregation by sex, the use of rooms and the different services to clients both men and women are also among the attractions of this spa in accordance with Islamic law. Beauty treatment and spa have been widely known worldwide as it is closely related with beauty among women or even men. Unfortunately, most of beauty treatment and spas in Malaysia did not emphasize the Islamic concept itself by do not perform well based on Islamic values. The changes of lifestyles in the context of Malaysia and religiously concern Muslim on their health and beauty treatment has created a niche in the subject itself. The aims of the study is to investigate and identify the design guidelines, standards and main elements based on Islamic Spa Practice (ISP) introduced by Nu’della Malaysian Holistic Spa (registered trade marks with Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia; TRADE MARKS ACT 1976; TRADE MARKS REGULATIONS 1997). The scope of the study is to focus on Islamic space planning based on ISP where stated that differentiation in gender can be separated for example by different level and provision for musollah/praying area designated. Another emphasize is on the interior design scheme whereby beside ISP’s, experience and reflective appreciations of the selected case study nominated attraction, relaxation and appropriateness. The significance of the study is to bring halal industries to next level, especially in beauty treatments and spas from Islamic perspectives.
