Kelly Hoppen designs 22,000sq ft nature-inspired spa for Celebrity Cruises

A spa is a place where one goes to relax and be pampered, so for me, The Spa had to be neutral in palette and use complementary lighting, evoking a sense of calmness
– Kelly Hoppen

Designer Kelly Hoppen has created the accommodations and spa for the new vessel Celebrity Edge, the latest member of the Celebrity Cruises-branded fleet.

Homeporting and cruising from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Celebrity Edge will be making her first voyage on 1 December 2018 and will spend her inaugural season sailing alternating seven-night eastern and western Caribbean cruise itineraries.

Passengers will be able to enjoy the 22,000sq ft (2,000sq m) The Spa on Celebrity Edge, which has been inspired by nature.

“The spa has always been a sacred space to me," said Hoppen. "As a young girl, I always dreamt of designing my very own spa and Celebrity Edge proved to be the perfect outlet for living out my dreams.

"A spa is a place where one goes to relax and be pampered, so for me, The Spa had to be neutral in palette and use complementary lighting, evoking a sense of calmness. Every aspect of the design is meaningful to me; from the dramatic crystal installation – which was inspired by the qualities that crystals have had on my life – to the imposing and dramatic, yet Zen sculpture acting as a reception desk.”

Natural elements are infused into the experience at The Spa through a concept called SEA – inspired by the Sea, Earth, and the Air. SEA aims to unite every experience throughout the wellness journey, through bespoke blended essences, which fill the air; a Zen-inspired relaxation lounge; and a welcome ritual.

“As we curated The Spa journey with Celebrity, the inspiration behind this revolutionary concept was to connect guests with nature while delivering distinctive sensory experiences, uncompromising service, and a wealth of new wellness choices that are exclusive at sea,” said Glenn Fusfield, president and CEO, One Spa World, which will operate the spa. “We’ve created a concept that not only evolves spa and wellness but sets the new standard.”

A SEA Thermal Suite will feature eight therapeutic experiences harnessing the benefits of natural elements: the hammam, salt room, steam room, rainfall water therapy room, float room, heated tile loungers, infrared sauna, and crystalarium.

A fitness centre will include hot yoga, Technogym Group Cycle, Fitness on Demand, cardio boxing, and the first Bungee Fit and Peloton bikes offered at sea.

“Our aspiration for The Spa was the same aspiration we have for Celebrity Edge – to provide our guests with a deeper and more profound connection to the sea,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and CEO, Celebrity Cruises. “To start the revolution in relaxation, we turned once again to the visionary Kelly Hoppen to completely transform the spa experience and develop an atmosphere that envelops you in luxury and soothes your soul from the moment you walk in.”

Celebrity Edge will be joined by three sister ships in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
