From green to gold.
We support and promote sustainable spa design, green building techniques, clean energy technologies and resource-conscious operations. The “greening” of the spa industry is a recent trend, but our background is deeply rooted in stewardship and connection to the land (see our bio). We believe spas that can market their environmental innovation, which is directly tied to health and well-being, have a distinct advantage.
Creating a competitive edge. Our ideal partner is seeking
statement. You understand that a unique spa design - especially one that is sustainable, energy efficient, and health-conscious - will distinguish
your presence. That is a real advantage in this growing marketplace.
We collaborate with each client to explore
and enhance your distinct vision. Spa types and themes offer
a endless range of choices: day spa, salon spa, destination spa, resort
spa, medi-spa, dental spa, fitness spa, nutritional spa, metaphysical
spa, wellness spa, men's spa, family spa, hi-tech spa, express spa...
Working in synergy, together we will define the perfect balance of elements for your own unforgettable spa. Wherever we go, we look for ways to re-use existing structures and implement sustainable solutions. We'll uncover the unique spirit of your locale and environment, and develop the right theme and architecture to enhance it.
Experiences that last. We offer fresh ideas for your spa design, special treatments gathered from healing and sensory delights found around the globe. These are relaxing, pampering, therapeutic experiences your guests and patients will savor ~ and they’ll want to renew those experiences, again and again.
The result is a spa that is profitable and highly successful. It’s your own signature statement ~ unique, exclusive and distinctive.
The difference is in the details. To bring your concept to reality, we oversee the project's construction, green building technologies, and all the custom fabrications necessary to develop a unique environment. We can't take away all the stress of the building process, but we've been there before and know how to manage a spa project. We'll watch over the details to help smooth out the bumps in the road.
What’s your vision? We listen to your ideas. We'll balance
those ideas with our years of spa expertise and international experience
~ setting the stage for your success. Together we can take the road less
and create something that has never been
It's a good time to be entering the spa arena, with its fusion of diverse
professions and creative approaches to wellness. Contact
