When designing the spa for Fairmont Fujairah, it was critical to go in a different direction from what could politely be called the regional norm; after all there’s no shortage of gold adorned spas in the UAE. In contrast, the design here is simple, elegant and intentionally keeping in line with the natural and organic elements of the treatments themselves. Materials such as aged timber and jute, combined with more complex detailing on the driftwood beams, create a stylish yet un-invasive environment in which to relax and enjoy a signature spa treatment.
