A project at L’Horizon Beach Hotel and Spa, owned by Hand Picked Hotels, has seen an existing open-plan conference area transformed into a stunning health and relaxation facility.
L’Horizon Spa includes six treatment rooms; two relax rooms, manicure and pedicure area, a sleep room, reception and toilet facilities.
During the works Style Shopfitting acted as the main contractor and 10 Design Ltd, Glasgow worked on the interior design of the new spa. Premier Hospitality caught up with Simon Andrade, Company Director at 10 Design, to find out more about the firms involvement in the project.
“We were delighted when our client Hand Picked Hotels, asked us to transform the underused function space at L’Horizon. We developed the design proposal and the brief was to create a fresh, bright and functional space that competed with the other spas on the island.
“It was fantastic to be involved in this project as we really enjoy working with Hand Picked Hotels. The projects they ask us to do are ones that we can really get our teeth into and complete successfully. We were delighted to be asked to do it.”
The new spa lies in the previous function space, and can be accessed via the hotel’s main staircase. The spa has been designed in line with a beach theme and provides a light, airy, relaxing environment for those visiting the spa to unwind in.
The space contains a feature circular pendant in the middle of a circular reception area, with a backlit, pebble covered reception desk located in the back left as you enter. The space is very softly lit and decorated with neutral colours in order to create a peaceful ambience. The lighting and electronics are all concealed making the spa a very free flowing tranquil space. Comfortable seating has been installed next to the reception so those awaiting treatments can enjoy a cup of tea or water before entering the treatment rooms.
The treatment rooms have been decorated in a dark palette in order to create a relaxing haven for those having a treatment.
Another aspect of the works included the updating of the ground floor office space, along with the entrance staircase and lobby. This aspect of the project required the team to work out of hours, so they carefully planned the work to ensure guests would not be disturbed.
Additional works on the project included roofing, the installation of wall tiling, solid and glazed partitions and suspended ceilings. Style Shopfitting also installed new upholstery and decorations in the hotel – including staining timber doors, wallpapering and all mechanical, electrical and plumbing installations.
