€40m thermal oasis will be designed by Lithuanian studio, Arches

Global spa, hotel and wellness consultancy The E77 Company is realising a new thermal spa resort and hotel among a historic pine forest in Lithuania’s coastal region of Klaipėda, Lithuania.

E77 is working alongside project owner and developer Releven to create the destination, as well as Lithuanian architecture studio Arches and professor of architecture Dr Edgaras Neniskis to sensitively integrate the resort within the forest habitat.

In his work, Neniskis is aiming to preserve centuries-old trees and the naturally formed relief in the area and ensure the resort and hotel totally immerse guests in nature.

Architecture firm Basalt – which helped conceive Iceland's iconic Blue Lagoon resort – is also a part of the project’s creative team

Eco-friendly and innovative solutions are being planned for construction, interior and exterior design, as well as spa and hotel management.

The centrepiece of the 168-room resort in Giruliai will be a 3,000sq m spa complete with 25-30 treatment rooms and 1,700sq m of indoor and outdoor thermal pools.

The pools will be filled with local geothermal mineral water extracted from 1km underground.

After a €40m (£34.4m, US$48.7m) investment, the resort is set to become an oasis of natural wellbeing which immerses guests in lush forest and invigorating sea air, offering a retreat from busy life.

Klaipėda is known as a healing destination, thanks to both its mineral water and invigorating sea air which is enriched with a high iodine concentration – a trace mineral that is important for regulating thyroid activity.

The new resort’s philosophy will centre around whole-body wellbeing, sustainability and harnessing the healing power of nature to rebalance guests.

“The opportunity to enjoy exceptional service, local history, nature in all seasons and a distinctive thermal wellness offering will together create a completely different and unique spa and wellbeing experience,” explained Egle Rukšėnaitė, E77 owner and founder.

The facility will be open year-round and is scheduled to launch between 2023-24.

Spa treatment highlights will include hydrotherapy experiences incorporating local mineral water, forest bathing and healing journeys which simultaneously allow guests to become at one with nature and nourish the body.

The wellness offering will be rounded out by outdoor activities including hiking and cycling, alongside an indoor gym.

The unique seaside forest location is steeped in history and features original WWII fortifications used by German forces.
