Success Story: Dorianna Lolli

Born in the USA, Doriana’s family originates from Abruzzo in Italy. Doriana is a medical doctor with two key specializations: gastroenterology and hydrology (the science of mineral water). Doriana has worked in a number of hotels and thermal centers in a range of roles, such as Medical Director, Spa Manager, Spa Medical Manager and Medical Coordinator. In 2017, she joined Rocco Forte’ s Verdura Resort in Sicily as the Medical Spa Manager.

How did you get your start in the spa industry?
I studied to become a doctor and in 1993 decided to work in the wellness world, because wellness is the combination of health and beauty. From 1993 to today, I’ve worked in wellness, with a particular focus on the thermal world.

What roles have you held in the industry during your career?
Medical Coordinator; Spa Manager; Medical Director; Spa Medical Manager.

What professional achievement are you most proud of and why?
That I’ve been able to work in such a number of different locations (Merano, Boario, Ischia, Sirmione, Trescore balneario, Riccione) and faced up to the challenge of new locations and succeeded in giving my all. And today, being part of Rocco Forte Hotels, is another proud moment of my career.

What is the best part of working in the spa and wellness industry?
I love the spa and wellness industry, because it is always changing and open to a lot of things, and thus gives me the opportunity to utilize my creative and dynamic personality.

What one piece of advice would you give someone starting out in the spa and wellness industry?
You need to be passionate about it!
