Item description for Spa & Wellness Hotels (Designpocket) by Cristina Montes...
Spas are quickly becoming the destination of choice for travelers looking to decompress from the tensions and hurried pace of their normal lives. This beautifully designed book features some of the most luxurious resorts from around the world to show how architects, designers, wellness providers and hotel owners have given new life to the concept of the spa vacation. Combining state of the art technology with ancient healing methods and innovative settings, these spas in Europe, Asia, and the United States demonstrate the importance of setting and cultural accents in providing just the right kind of personalized service. From the old-world elegance of Copenhagen's five-star Hotel d'Anglaterre to sleek, modern, architectural wonder that is the Hotel Atoll in Helgoland, Germany; from the magnificently situated Bacara Resort, perched upon the bluff's of California's central coast, to the classical atmosphere of the Thalassotherapy center at Spain's Byblos Andaluz; from the tropical paradises of the Seychelles and the South Pacific to urban retreats in London and Paris---each of these singular locations takes advantage of natural building materials and resources, while at the same time displaying the latest trends in architectural and hotel design. Readers searching for their own unique paradise will find inspiration and information in this gorgeous book; and those more financially challenged will find the trip through these pages to be almost as soothing as the real thing.
