Raison d’Etre designs spa for Hard Rock Davos

by Jane Kitchen | 26 Jul 2018

Global spa consultancy Raison d’Etre (RdE) has been contracted by the Hard Rock Hotel Davos, Switzerland to design and implement the hotel’s ‘Rock Spa’ which opens on 1 August.

Combining spa, fitness and yoga, the new Rock Spa will offer a 360-degree approach to wellness, in keeping with Raison d’Etre’s philosophy to encourage everyone to maximise their potential. The 945sq m spa will boast a series of thermal experiences, including a main pool, Kneipp walk pool, whirlpool, sauna, steam bath and ice shower.

“Hard Rock is such an iconic brand that it has enabled us to really extend the creativity around Rock Spa while implementing serious but fun wellness experiences,” said Raison d’Etre project manager Michael Simonato. “We’re looking forward to hearing guest feedback for what will be a really unique and fulfilling spa journey.”

With six treatment rooms, including one specifically for beauty and two with sliding doors which can then be turned into a room for couples, guests can enjoy a series of signature treatments under the hotel brand’s Rhythm & Motion spa concept.

This includes the Synchronicity treatment, which pairs a curated soundtrack with choreographed pressure and rhythm; the Smooth Operator, a two-part treatment that begins with a rhythmical, dry brushing and finishes with a detoxifying wrap, all set to music; Face the Music, which uses the therapeutic benefits of sound vibrations; and Wrap Remix, a dry exfoliation combined with a relaxing, rhythmic massage.

Guests will be able to enjoy a choice of Body Rock fitness activities including functional training, cardio and urban dance.

There is also a spa shop with Manduka PROlite yoga mats and on-demand instruction videos available via TV systems in the guest rooms. Rock Om is an in-room program and a relaxation area.

“We are delighted to partner with Raison d’Etre and create a state-of-the-art spa for our guests to enjoy,” said hotel general manager Dagmar Weber. “The combination of music and wellness is a unique and exciting movement; we look forward to pairing authentic Nordic experiences with the Hard Rock ethos.”
