NASSAU, The Bahamas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Steiner Leisure Limited (NASDAQ:STNR) today announced that its luxury resort spa division, Mandara Spa, has entered into an agreement to operate a luxury spa facility located at the Presidente InterContinental Cozumel Resort & Spa in Cozumel, Quintana Roo, Mexico.

The luxury boutique spa will feature unique signature treatments by Mandara Spa and will offer local, Balinese and Elemis beauty treatments. Steiner Leisure will be required to expend $400,000 to acquire the rights to the spa lease from the current operator of the spa and may spend up to an additional $100,000 in connection with refurbishing of the spa.

The spa is estimated to open by the end of February 2007. The term of the agreement is three years, and Mandara has an option to renew the agreement for two additional three-year periods.

This luxurious resort re-opened in November 2006, after undergoing extensive upgrading. The property is set along half a mile of sandy beach and against the history-filled backdrop and natural wonders of Cozumel. The resort offers 220 oversized guest rooms with balconies or terraces, most or which overlook the Caribbean Sea, including two presidential suites and five reef suites with oversized whirlpool tubs.
