InterContinental London – The O2 has added a large main swimming pool, spa pool, and a steam and sauna room, to complement its gym, massage and therapy rooms. The facilities allow the hotel to offer the entire spa experience from swimming and exercise to relaxation and treatments.
The SPATA award-winning pool and spa have been built on the ground floor, rather than in the basement, to ensure the spa is light and airy.
The bespoke design includes a 17 (l) x 7 (w) x 1.2m (d) pool with a waterfall that cascades from the pool and spa dividing wall.
The smaller spa pool is a bespoke concrete design measuring 4.4 x 2.7m with a lounger at each end of the central bench. The loungers have bubble trays which give full air massage, and the bench has both back and calf water / air mixture jets for relaxing massages. Two AstralPool neck-jet water cannons send bursts of water into the spa pool.
The pool interior has been finished with Waxman Ceramic blue mosaic tiles, and underwater lighting is by Eva Optic. To complete the tranquil atmosphere, the pool and spa surround has been finished with large-format porcelain tiles in a creamy colour.
The pool / spa plantroom is equipped with Astral Arctic filters and Badu pumps which maintain pool functionality at optimum performance. An automatic backwash system was retrofitted to make backwashing easy.
