The opening of the spa at Four Seasons Milano is, of course, an event that I could not pass by, although, as regular readers of this blog have noted, I have been publishing news extremely rarely lately (and for good reason).
So, this summer, “after almost ten years of waiting,” according to a press release, the hotel is opening a spa. To build a modern Spa center into the building of the former nunnery of the XV century – that’s what a difficult task the project developers have been facing all this time. It was necessary to carefully plan the new premises, as it had to not only not disturb the harmony of this one of the best Italian hotels, but simply fit into the architectural style of the historic building. The famous Milanese architect and designer Patricia Urquiola worked. And she apparently succeeded in achieving her goal! Here’s what it will all look like:
The original vaulted ceilings of the 19th century have been fully preserved during the construction of the spa. In addition to seven treatment rooms, a pool area, a Turkish bath and Jacuzzi, there will also be a state-of-the-art fitness center and a hair salon by the famous hairdresser Rossano Ferretti, whose signature style is referred to by critics as “Methodo”.
The Spa will offer a wide range of treatments based on La Prairie and Sodashi cosmetics. Combining innovations in biotechnology with the art of anti-aging beauty, La Prarie has created special massages and relaxation treatments exclusively for the Four Seasons Spa Milano. Sodashi cosmetics are created exclusively from natural elements and essential oils. The opening of the Spa is scheduled for June 2012.
