An Instagram worthy hotel spa pool on London’s Greenwich Peninsula…
Selected to operate as one of the Government’s approved quarantine hotels until further notice, in normal times, The InterContinental London – The O2 – on Greenwich Peninsula, offers a luxurious and holistic approach to wellbeing. The luxury hotel operator wanted a spa to be part of an ‘integrated pool and spa’ to complement its health and wellbeing facilities to help it achieve its aim of becoming the number one luxury spa in Greenwich.
The team from The London Swimming Pool Company stepped up to create a bespoke concrete spa pool measuring 4.4 x 2.7 metres with a lounger at each end of the central bench. The loungers have bubble trays which give full air massage, and the bench has both back and calf water/ air mixture jets for relaxing massages. Two AstralPool neck-jet water cannons send bursts of water into the spa pool.
InterContinental’s Operations Director, Heather Hamilton, said of the project: “The facilities make the hotel very competitive.
“Breaking away from the age-old tradition of locating spas in basements gives our spa lots of daylight which appeals to customers,” she continues. “To complete the relaxing aura, the soft colours and lighting make our spa Instagram worthy.” The spa pool forms part of a large main pool, and wellness facilities to complement its gym, massage and therapy rooms. The facilities allow the hotel to offer the entire spa experience from swimming and exercise to relaxation and treatments. The award-winning pool and spa have been built on the ground floor, rather than the basement, to ensure the spa is light and airy. The bespoke design includes a 17 x 7 metres and 1.2 metres deep pool with a waterfall that cascades from the pool and spa dividing wall.
