Architect Alberto Apostoli designed the new spa at Casale Del Principe, Sicily
POSTED 24 Mar 2014 . BY Helen Andrews
Acqua Spa, designed by Veronese architect Alberto Apostoli, has opened its doors at Casale Del Principe in Sicily.

In 2012 owners of the Monreale property, the Rizzo family, began the project to build a 700sq m (7,534sq ft) wellness centre into the fortified farmhouse’s structure.

The spa, which opened at the end of January, is spread over three levels, with the ground floor incorporating a cabin for treatments carried out in a “cocoon” that is six metres high and floating on a pool as well as a windowed sauna, hammam - divided into a calidariam and a tepidariaum, relaxation room and emotional showers.

On the spa's first floor there are seven different themed suites: stone, wood, history, water, citrus, art and culture. Each suite is inspired by different elements of the culture and tradition of the Sicilian environment.

The 14m (45ft) underground swimming pool was formed by digging into the natural rock – the excess of which decorates the spa's walls.

“The main USP of this spa is that they use only Sicilian products for food, cosmetics and treatments,” said designer and architect, Alberto Apostoli.

Products and treatments are provided by Italian spa brand Comfort Zone. These include a number of treatments such as heated basalt rock detoxification and Polynesian massage, while anti-ageing procedures and moisturising treatments are also available.
