Evian Spa to occupy 86th floor of Lotte Group’s soaring Seoul skyscraper

by Jane Kitchen | 10 Oct 2016

Evian Spa will expand its presence in the Asian market with a new spa on the 86th floor of Lotte Hotel Group’s Lotte World Tower in Seoul, South Korea.

Lotte Group, South Korea’s fifth-largest conglomerate, is building the 555m-high (1,821ft) tower, which will be Seoul’s first super-tall skyscraper and the sixth-tallest building in the world.

Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, the 123-storey tower will include department stores, cultural facilities, restaurants, residences, offices, and the first Signiel Hotel, a new luxury brand of Lotte Hotels.

The 86th floor Evian Spa will occupy 550sq m (5,920sq ft) of space, plus an additional 440sq m (4,736sq ft) of wet space, including a swimming pool.

Set to open in 2017, the spa will tell the story of the journey of Evian mineral water in the French Alps, with a metaphoric representation of its birthplace in the look and feel of the area.

“We have been seduced by the new iconicity of the place in Seoul and the sustainable facilities developed by Lotte around the most ambitious project in South Korea,” said Florence /Bossard, global business development director for Evian. “Lotte World Tower will enable the guests to discover the Evian universe with our vision of wellness through the spa experience and daily premium hydration at the restaurant.”

The Evian Spa team, led by Patrick Saussay, founder of GPSA and in charge of Evian Spa international development, is working closely with the Lotte team and Wilson Associates interior design firm, which is heading up the integration of the Evian Spa design concept to the building.
