Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi spa inspired by local woven fish traps

by Luke Cloherty | 16 Dec 2016

The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi in Malaysia, due to open in July 2017, has released details of its spa to CLAD.

On top of a range of conventional treatments and features, the spa’s standout offering will be its five floating cocoon-shaped spa pavilions, shaped to resemble Malay Bubus, which are intricately woven fish traps that have been used for centuries by local fishermen. The pavilions will float above the Andaman Sea and will be connected by overwater walkways.

The Spa at the Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi will encompass 917sq m and include a fitness center of 202sq m – located at the very edge of jungle with floor-to-ceiling windows. The facility will also house an open relaxation area with two vitality pools (female and male), a sauna and steam bath of 230sq m, a split spa suite of 97sq m, a couples’ spa suite of 71sq m, a couples’ treatment room of 51sq m, two single treatment rooms of 61sq m and a hammam pavilion stretching to 62sq m.

The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi has been created by designer Jan Strickland and architects Burega Farnell.
