Silver Rain SPA

Thu 03 2008

The experience begins in the foyer, where guests walking across the cast-glass floor hear water running beneath their feet. Cast glass, framed in steel, appears in jagged three-dimensional form along the walls, suggesting arctic ice crystals—even the temperature is slightly lower here. Water simultaneously cascades down the foyer’s walls of white quartzite, a typically Swiss stone that gives a subtle nod to skin-care company La Prairie, which oversees the spa. As for water vapor, it defines the Silver Mist treatment room, named for its row of showerheads.  D’Aquino Monaco Inc
