Business: Another try at spa in the Willows

Ambreen Lakhani is hoping the fourth time's the charm when it comes to opening a spa at 103 Gilbert Ave. in Menlo Park's Willows neighborhood.

Her business, Spa in the Park, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Feb. 27 to mark its presence in Menlo Park, two months after opening its doors. Ms. Lakhani's business is the fourth spa to occupy that location in the last several years, she said; the site had been vacant for six months.

But she's not intimidated by the failures of her predecessors. "Our approach is different" from that of the businesses that previously occupied the space, she said, arguing that her business is friendlier to customers. "The services we offer are more down to earth. ... We want to get to know the community, we want to know our neighbors."

Ms. Lakhani stressed her employees' bona fides, saying that each is nationally licensed and has 500 hours of training.

The spa is located in a small business strip in the midst of the Willows, around the corner from Cafe Zoe, La Hacienda Market, and Be Yoga, among other businesses.
