Celebrity Cruises has revealed the 14,000 square feet spa that will be on board its next ship, Celebrity Edge.
Designed by British designer Kelly Hoppen, the spa will be ran by One Spa World and feature a number of industry firsts including a range of treatments and facilities.
The entire complex, including the gym (with includes a Ryde spin class area and Hot Yoga facility) and cafe covers about 22,000 square feet.
“Our vision for The Spa was the same aspiration we have for Celebrity Edge – to provide our guests with a deeper and more profound connection to the sea,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and ceo, Celebrity Cruises. “To start the revolution in relaxation, we turned once again to the visionary Kelly Hoppen to completely transform the spa experience, and develop an atmosphere that soothes the soul from the moment guests walk in.”
The spa will offer 124 treatments including a Zero Gravity Wellness Massage, Restorative Salt Stone Massage, and Thousand Flower Detox Wrap.
“The spa has always been a sacred space to me. I always dreamt of designing my very own spa and Celebrity Edge proved to be the perfect outlet for living out my dreams,” said Kelly Hoppen. “A spa is a place where one goes to relax and be pampered, so for me The Spa had to be neutral in palette and complementary lighting, evoking a sense of calmness. Every aspect of the design is meaningful to me; from the dramatic crystal installation to the imposing and dramatic, yet Zen sculpture acting as a reception desk.”
The SEA Thermal Suite – an acronym which stands for Sea Earth and Air – will replace the Persian Garden. It will include a number of treatment rooms including the Hammam, Salt Room, Steam Room, Rainfall Water Therapy Room, Float Room, Heated tile loungers, Infrared Sauna and Crystalarium.
“As we curated The Spa journey with Celebrity Cruises, the inspiration behind this revolutionary concept was to connect guests with nature while delivering distinctive sensory experiences, uncompromising service, and a wealth of new wellness choices that are exclusive at sea,” said Glenn Fusfield, president and ceo, One Spa World, LLC. “We’ve created a concept that not only evolves spa and wellness, but sets the new standard of wellness on-board.”
There will also be a Kérastase hair salon, the first at sea, as well as a dedicated men’s barber shop.
