Greek lifestyle hotel to include Elemis spa in shades of blue

by Jane Kitchen | 26 Jul 2016

An Elemis spa will be a central part of the new Domes Noruz Chania lifestyle hotel on the Greek island of Crete, set to open this month.

The 350sq m (3,767sq ft) features traditional artwork motifs and natural materials, and employs various shades of blue in its design. Natural light and diffused, indirect lighting are used to sustain a sense of relaxation, and the wall tiles reference the patterns found in local embroidery and fabrics.

The spa has three treatment rooms, and uses Elemis products and organic herbs from the island for its selection of massages, facials and body treatments.

The adults-only hotel, part of Marriott’s Autograph Collection, has 83 bedrooms and was designed by architect Stefanos Skandalis, with interiors by Neni Spartsi and Olivia Siskou. The overall approach of the hotel’s design is both global and local – or “glocal,” as the designers refer to it.

Cretan sandstone is the dominant building material in the resort’s modern Greek design, and the domed architecture is inspired by the Venetian Arsenals. Outdoor spaces aim to maximise the benefits of natural light while providing cool, sheltered spaces.

The Domes Noruz Chania will also include a fitness centre and swimming pool.
