A new urban wellness retreat has opened in downtown Portland, Oregon, at the recently opened luxury hotel The Ritz-Carlton, Portland with architecture and design by GBD Architects and HKS Interior Design and identity and wayfinding by Knot.

Situated on the 19th floor of the 35-storey, 251-room hotel, Cloudbreak on Nineteen has been conceived with the help of ROAM Interior Design as a restorative health and wellness haven complete with a spa inspired by the unfolding petals of a Portland rose.

One of the spa's highlights is its Hidden Mountain Lake Pool. The zero-edge infinity pool is encompassed by three sides of floor-to-ceiling glass, offering guests expansive views of Mount Hood and the Cascade Range in the distance.

The spa is also complete with a feature wall of cascading water tumbling from a rose copper shelf into a tranquil pool. The soothing feature is inspired by Portland’s abundance of beautiful waterfalls.

Additional amenities include saunas, steamrooms, a whirlpool, a snow shower, private relaxation pods, a co-ed relaxation lounge and a spa retail boutique.

“We’re thrilled to offer an oasis of tranquillity and rejuvenation to our guests,” said property GM Marie Browne. “Keeping in theme with the hotel’s Portland personality, the curves and folds of the spa’s rose-inspired interior is a stunning reflection of the Pacific Northwest and a nod to our Rose City itself.

Beyond the spa, Cloudbreak is home to a 4,000sq ft fitness centre bathed in light with floor-to-ceiling windows.

The spacious open-plan facility provides access to state-of-the-art Technogym cardio and strength-building equipment as well as a private movement studio used for yoga and meditation classes.
