The InterContinental London - The O2 has partnered with ESPA for its new spa, operated by The Arora Group and set to open in Q4 2015.

The Spa at InterContinental London - The O2 will be located on the ground floor of the 18-storey hotel, and will include eight treatment rooms.

The 1,000sq m (10,764sq ft) spa will include a relaxation room, sauna and steam room, along with a 17m (56ft) indoor swimming pool with whirlpool, cannon neck massage jets and poolside loungers.

The spa’s aesthetic draws on the hotel’s location within historic Royal Greenwich and local influences of the East India Trading Company, with bespoke printed mosaic tiles, rugs and delicate die-cut pendant lighting inspired by the area’s trading of porcelain and silks as far back as the 18th century.

The spa also includes exotic textures and materials, such as gold gilt and blue pearl granite, as well as heavy timbers inspired by Greenwich’s historic naval ships and merchant dock yards.

“We’ve taken great care with the design of the spa to create a real oasis of calm that invites guests and members to sink into the depths of the space, like an underwater cavern,” said Hasham Soliman, general manager of the hotel.
