Meet the Spa Director

Megan Backhaus is the Spa Director for The Spa at the Emerald Grande.

She and her team of professionals are focused on providing you the world class spa experience you deserve!

The daughter of an Air Force officer, Megan was born in England, United Kingdom. She brings over 10+ years of experience in the luxury spa and wellness industry. Megan initially joined our Emerald Grande team while pursuing her Bachelor’s Degree in Hospitality, Recreation and Resort Management. During her time at The Spa at Emerald Grande, she discovered that this field, and particularly Spa and Wellness, was her passion and she worked hard to expand her knowledge of the industry.

After college, Megan was offered an incredible opportunity in Las Vegas, Nevada where she helped with the grand opening of the Ciel Spa at the SLS Hotel on the Las Vegas strip. While in Las Vegas, she gained a wealth of knowledge that she would eventually bring back to the Gulf Coast.

After returning to Destin, she assisted with the grand opening of The Salamander Spa at the Henderson Beach Resort. Megan is now back and happy to call the Gulf Coast home where she is passionately and professionally leading the team at The Spa at Emerald Grande.
