The Crown hotel day spa has recently completed an $10 million enhancement. Located within the Crown Towers hotel, Crown Spa now boasts 19 treatment rooms, two exclusive couples’ suites and a dedicated hair and beauty salon. The new Aqua Retreat facilities feature a hammam steam room, deluge shower and expansive vitality pool. Guests also have access to the male and female relaxation lounges and the 25-metre indoor heated pool. The unique circular-shaped hair salon showcases a vibrant orange glass chandelier and custom-designed styling units. Crown Spa is proud to exclusively partner with Swiss beauty company, La Prairie.
Designed by Singapore-based architect and interior designer Michael Fiebrich, Crown Spa features a palette of pale blues, greens and neutral tones inspired by nature. The use of organic elements, natural materials and jewel tones combine to create peaceful restoration. Richly coloured finishings, textures, artwork and handmade furniture feature throughout. The “experience corridor” with customised carpet and hand-painted silk feature walls from UK based company Fromental, creates a welcoming arrival for guests.
A prominent highlight is the specially-commissioned flock of abstract birds made from blown glass that feature in the reception area while a number of walls are adorned with specially commissioned sepia photographs by John Austin and artwork by Chris Kenyan.
The new male area features a Turkish-bath inspired hammam with Italian Cicis mosaics, a vitality pool, a deluge shower and an experience shower with multiple body jets. An entire wall of mosaics graduates in colour from a deep ocean blue to turquoise and Mother of Pearl. An unexpected element of the exclusive men’s area is a waterproof relaxation area complete with television.
The dedicated female area features a mosaic tiled hammam, a vitality pool, deluge shower and decorative hand-blown glass obelisk. Here, the pool’s tiles cascade from a deep ruby colour to pink tourmaline and pale rose. This area also includes three private treatment rooms.
Two spacious couples’ Indulgence Suites include a deep soak tub, relaxation area, massage beds as well as a steam room and shower with accents of amethyst, amber, emerald, citrine, turquoise and sapphire featuring throughout.
