Tammy Pahel To Head Spa at Carillon Miami Wellness Resort


Carillon Miami Wellness Resort, a world-class wellness property in Miami Beach, today announced the appointment of respected spa-industry leader Tammy Pahel as Director of Spa. In her new role, Pahel (pictured) manages a team of 100 professionals in the property’s integrated spa, fitness, salon, and wellness facilities.

“With nearly three decades of notable experience in the spa industry, Tammy Pahel is respected for the successful relationships she creates between spas and top wellness brands,” says Carillon Miami Wellness Resort Managing Director Paul Nash. “Pahel’s expertise in negotiating collaborations among wellness brands will continue to establish Carillon Miami Wellness Resort as the leader in elevating spa brands through strategic partnerships”

In May, Pahel was one of only three English-speaking presenters in Paris at The Hotel & Spa Forum held annually at The Four Seasons George V. Most recently at Turnberry Isle Miami, Pahel led the creation of a successful collective between spa-equipment brand Gharieni, an Integrative-Medicine company, a top plastic-surgeon brand, and an Oriental-Medicine company. The partnership elevated the traditional spa experience for guests at no cost to the property and led to the rebranding of the spa to Ame Spa & Wellness Collective.

“Pahel’s expertise in negotiating collaborations among wellness brands will continue to establish Carillon Miami Wellness Resort as the leader in elevating spa brands through strategic partnerships.”

Pahel adds, “At Carillon Miami, I am working on new, innovative partnerships. There are so many brands for which I have relationships that are interested in working with Carillon Miami. Together, we will create one-of-a-kind guest experiences that will elevate the property to the pinnacle of wellness resorts in the world.”

​Pahel began her career in 1989 as Executive Director at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort and led the property to a “Top Ten Spas” ranking by Conde Nast Gold List. She also led the spa operations for Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa, The Spa at Caesar’s Palace and Deer Lake Lodge & Spa.

Pahel is also the Founder & Principal of Spa Management Solutions, Inc., which she launched in 1999. Committed to having a prominent voice in the spa industry, Pahel served on the International Spa Association Board for four years and participated for an additional eight years on various ISPA committees.

The Spa at Carillon Miami Wellness Resort Set is set in a luxurious 70,000-square-foot integrated wellness space surrounded by views of the Atlantic Ocean and offers an empowering approach to treating the mind, body and soul.
