Spas are often associated with luxury and have developed into a necessary component for many investors who are planning significant hotel renovations and new construction during the past ten years. The demand for spas to give room, light, and the chance to unwind in nature will become even more significant aspects within the scope of spa architecture as we go into a time that looks beyond the post-COVID-19 lockdown. There are several crucial factors to take into account in our quest to design spas that are real, distinctive, and inspirational with a true "feeling of the place." First off, the shift away from standardized spa experiences mirrors the direction that hotel brands are going in an effort to appeal to visitors' demand for originality. Developing the experience and the guest surroundings authentically and uniquely are done at the early idea stage. The notion may be informed by site-specific or historical characteristics. The production of uniquely designed pieces, such as furniture and lighting, and the use of materials and finishes appropriate to the site all contribute to the sensation of authenticity. If you want to fully utilize the views, natural light, and connections to the outdoor spa areas, gardens, or even a roof terrace, the spa's siting is crucial. Spas are now no longer entirely confined to the hotel basement, which reflects their growing significance as a component of a hotel's comprehensive health offer.
We are observing a shift in luxury spa design away from formal, minimalist spas towards spas with "heart and soul" that are about comfort, relaxation, and re-connecting with nature, and are designed to appeal to the senses; aroma, fire, water, light, and landscaping are all key elements to incorporate. All of these trends are inspired by the idea of "barefoot luxury" and are presented in a way that is both inspiring and useful in a European context by bringing the outside in. The idea of opulent materials has evolved beyond plush and sparkle. The use of natural, raw materials will increase as spas strive to imitate the "barefoot luxury" that visitors encounter on opulent, island resorts. With the use of reclaimed end grain timber paneling, green slate, and Terracotta tiles in unusual forms, as well as marbles with a sharpened finish (as opposed to highly polished black and white marble), the design will represent this philosophy. The new luxury is about personalized and handcrafted design, nurturing, and caring.
Spas have undergone a significant transformation. Modern spa designs are freeform, natural, and customized. Thank goodness, deep relaxation rooms with rows of beds (referred to as "chapels of rest" by some therapists!) are being replaced with a wider range of relaxing areas and activities spread out across the spa. The use of outdoor gardens and chemical-free, natural experiences must be encouraged much more. This may be as straightforward as unwinding in a herb garden, over a fire, or staring at the stars from a hot pool, as seen at the most recent spa building. Thermal rooms and pools are changing to provide customized experiences rather than uniform designs made on modular parts. As seen by the growth of "panoramic saunas," such as the organic custom sauna, there is a shift away from thermal suites that are a sequence of doors leading to enclosed heat chambers and toward thermal suites that are light-filled transparent areas. Water will, of course, continue to be important to spas because of its relaxing effect. In a spa, the body is completely submerged in water, and we spend a lot of time thinking about the cleaning and therapeutic effects of this. We also want to be as integrated into the scenery as we can, and outdoor bathing is becoming more and more popular, whether it's in a sizable custom hydro pool, an indoor/outdoor swim pool, or private Japanese-style hot tubs.
