Mayan Luxury Spa is the merge of the ancient Mayan culture with the urban atmosphere. Located inside the Hotel Palace GL***** of Barcelona. The main important challenges we had to deal with were: how to distribute the functional program in a space that have a very unique floorplan, and how to integrate the two different languages – the baroque style of the hotel Palace and the contemporary, fresh and natural style of the Mayan Spa.
The spa is a space of 170 sqm in the main hall going up to the mezzanine. The goal was to fit inside the Spa 4 treatment rooms, showers, chromotherapy, jacuzzi and the main piece, the Temazcal, a special sauna from the Maya’s culture where they do some kind of rituals.
Also in this project we had to fit a manicure and pedicure room, the staff offices and the gym of the hotel.
The transition between the old and classic style of the hotel and the modern of the Spa was resolved with installation of a golden glass mirror entrance that reflect the classic style followed by a corridor covered with a thick curtain that gives the space itself some character.
Once you cross the corridor, you land in the heart of the Spa that has its own style that takes you inside the Mayan Culture.
