Baku, Azerbaijan, March 17
Located in the iconic modern landmark Flame Towers, ESPA at Fairmont Baku is the first branded ESPA Spa in Azerbaijan.
"Designed with Pierre Josselin at HBA Atlanta, we have created a spa that exudes grandeur and elegance, from the bespoke mosaic pool floors and warm anigre woods to the striking accents of red that run throughout the design. The unique Sky Garden with large Sun Deck and Poolside Sauna offer guests unique views of the Caspian Sea and creates a stunning spa feature," Sue Harmsworth MBE, CEO and Founder, ESPA said.
The striking flame-shaped towers are iconic for the city, inspired by the 'eternal fires of Baku'. Set over two floors, 3,500 metres in total; the lower level of the spa is reserved for revitalisation and features all things active, and the upper passive area is for relaxation, each beautifully reflected in the decor. Rich tones of warm amber and bronze, tactile materials and highlights of crystal create an extraordinary backdrop. The Spa also features the largest Hammam in the region and breathtaking views of the Caspian Sea.
"We were inspired by the amber colours of the flame to create a warm and relaxing environment. Using rich and natural materials on both floors we combined bright and fresh finishes on the active floor, while the passive floor was kept darker, softer and moodier for the ultimate spa experience.," Interior Designer, Pierre Josselin, HBA Atlanta said.
