Blu Spas creates two-level spa for upcoming Four Seasons Kuwait
By Jane Kitchen 21 Apr 2017
The two-level spa will have seven treatment rooms and two luxury spa suites, as well as a hammam, yoga studio, and indoor and outdoor pools
Global spa consultancy Blu Spas has worked in conjunction with designers Yabu Pushelberg and KEO International to create the 923sq m (9,935sq ft) spa at the upcoming Four Seasons Hotel Kuwait at Burj Alshaya, set to open in mid-2017.

The two-level spa will have seven treatment rooms and two luxury spa suites, as well as a hammam, fitness centres for men and women, yoga studio, a beauty salon and barbershop, and indoor and outdoor pools with a poolside waterfall, lush greenery and outdoor cabanas.

"This will be another spectacular and ultra-chic spa designed by Yabu Pushelberg," said Cary Collier, principal at Blu Spas. "The journey through the spa is full of wondrous surprises, curves and a sophisticated blend of organic finishes and furnishings."

Collier describes the spa as a "sensory sanctuary" that is "spacious yet cozy, with orchestrated spaces for both social gathering and solitude."

Skincare brands include MCCM, which will be implementing some special treatments for whitening as well as a non-invasive fat-reduction treatment. The spa includes equipment from Gharieni, including the MO1 series spa tables.

The 284-room Four Seasons will be located in one of two soaring glass towers; the second tower, set to open in 2018, will provide high-tech corporate headquarters for employees of hospitality company Alshaya’s retail franchise business.

Gensler is the lead architect for the hotel, and has developed its design concept around a regional architectural tradition, using traditional Arabian carved wood latticework window treatments that offer both solar control and air circulation.

“The geometry of the wood shading fins covers multiple building facades, creating a strong, visual distinction from neighbouring buildings, while enhancing climactic performance for the occupied spaces,” the firm said.

Yabu Pushelberg’s guest rooms reflect a modern aesthetic with Middle Eastern motifs, and include 67 suites.
