Almancil, Algarve, Portugal. May 2019: ASPA International, the bespoke luxury spa and wellness design consultancy, will supply and install all specialised equipment for the hydrothermal area at Amrit Ocean Resort & Residences, on the Atlantic shoreline of Palm Beach County. Set for completion in December 2019, the 9,290 sqm (100,000 sq ft), four-story spa will be at the heart of the new wellness resort.
With over 35 years’ experience of designing superior quality spas for the luxury hospitality and wellness sectors, Europe-based ASPA International was awarded its first North American project because of the consultancy’s innovative approaches, intelligent attention to function and feel, and operational practicality. Hydrothermal experiences will include a hydro-reflexology path, state-of-the-art steam and sauna rooms, halotherapy chamber, replenishment pools, and Artic Chill cold therapy.
Conceived by developer Creative Choice Group, Amrit (Sanskrit for ‘elixir of life’) is an inspired collaboration between Sue Harmsworth, founder of globally renowned ESPA, and the Himalayan Institute, a worldwide authority on holistic health. Creative Choice Group founder, Dilip Barot, says ‘We are combining the ancient inner science of the east with the modern comfort and technology of the west to provide the tools and support system for optimum peace and happiness’.
