NASSAU, The Bahamas, Oct. 13, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Steiner Leisure Limited (Nasdaq:STNR) today announced entry into an agreement to operate a Mandara luxury spa facility at the expanded Harrah's Cherokee Casino & Hotel in North Carolina. The term of this agreement is five years from the opening date of the spa. 

Harrah's Cherokee, an enterprise of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Nation, is a luxury property located in western North Carolina and nestled in natural beauty between the Great Smokey Mountains and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The property is currently undergoing an expansion project, anticipated to be completed in 2012. Upon completion, the 56-acre property will have added a third hotel tower (21-story Creek Tower), a 3,000-plus seat Event Center, entertainment and VIP lounges, a state-of-the-art digital poker room, an Asian gaming room, retail outlets and new restaurants, hotel and casino parking garages, renovated and increased casino floor size and game capacity, as well as the new luxury spa. Steiner has been engaged to provide technical support and consulting services in connection with the construction and design of the spa, as well as to operate the spa facility following its completion.

Leonard Fluxman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Steiner, said, "We are delighted to introduce our Mandara brand to the beautiful mountain setting that is home to the Eastern Band of Cherokee Nation. We look forward to incorporating elements of Native American culture into our time-honored Balinese-inspired treatments to bring our guests the best in therapeutic luxury. We believe that the availability of our beauty and wellness services and products, as well as the opportunity to relax and be pampered, will enhance the vacation experience for all guests of the Harrah's Cherokee complex."
