Text description provided by the architects. The design

Dark materials include rich metallic woods, embossed bronze floors, walls upholstered in exquisite horsehair.

There are very few straight walls or corridors in guest areas and that helps to make the spaces mysterious and allows guests to discover new areas as they journey through it.

Opulent chocolate brown marble and cast bronze sinks create a deep sense of calm and warmth throughout the Hammam. Mirrored silver glass tiles cover the pool and reflect the lavish gold feature wall above.

Crystals are delicately integrated into the spa design in their most natural state. Their faceted edges, which glisten in the light, reinforce the atmospheric feel while exuding a distinct sense of luxury and elegance.

VIP suite is decorated with patterned leather floors and smoked onyx walls.

The lightning

The play of light was one of the main component in the design inspiration and was drawn from the faceted cut out patterns found in a traditional Hammam.

The lutron system installed in the treatment rooms is programmed to have different light levels throughout the varying stages of the treatment: with a welcoming level for arrival, a very low level for treatment, a another level for showering, and a level for relaxation.  The Spa has both passive and active spaces, and the light levels reflect each space with the fitness room being the brightest.
