Boutique Design - July/August 2012 - 31

Champalimaud’s design for the Hotel Bel-Air’s spa extends the marketability of each treatment suite by adding a daybed for couples and repurposing the terrace as an outdoor room.

Designers weigh in on ways boutique hotels can offer memorable spa experiences in compact places.

S

paFinder’s 2012 “Top 10 Global Spa Trends Forecast” is as much of a to-do list for designers as for operators. Most of the hottest concepts unearthed by the spa-focused media/ marketing company directly impact decisions on FF&E and layout (see the sidebar on page 32). Guests expect spas to offer more of everything: more never-seen-that, neverdone-that experiences; more customization; and more in-spa lifestyle options, from private suites to public function venues. The challenge for design teams working in boutique hotels is how to deliver all of this in tight quarters—and real-world budgets. “Designers have to max out smaller foot-

prints to offer as many services as possible in each area,” says Jon Kastl, principal with New York-based Champalimaud. They’re nding solutions in new combinations of space usage and downsized design offers that function like tasting menus. For instance, Kastl is answering demand for invigorating hot-to-cold experiences with a circuit of small thermal pools that vary in temperature, a sauna, snow room, steam room and salt cave. They’re laid out around a shared lounge equipped with FF&E that anticipates guests’ needs: heated benches for clients who want to warm up and chaise lounges and daybeds for those who prefer to chill out.
