Peta Panos

Throughout an extensive career in South African inbound tourism – during which time she worked across small, medium and large business in a variety of roles, including CEO – Peta Panos travelled to a huge number of spas, retreats and spiritual centres around the world. However, she often found 5-star spas lacking in heartfelt, spiritual growth experiences and set up Spiritual Quest Journeys to craft more authentic, transformational wellness travel options. Her approach focuses as much on the inner journey as the outer, physical journey, tailoring each one in collaboration with trusted travel partners to help travellers develop personal mastery and success in their own quest for personal fulfilment.
