    Spa to open at the Four Seasons Hotel Milano

    Loyal guests and local devotees of Milan’s historic Four Seasons Hotel Milano will soon have to wait no longer, as the hotel opens its much-anticipated spa this June.Incorporating a spa into a 15th century former convent clearly cannot be rushed or taken lightly. Meticulous planning has therefore ensured that the new additions bring the best in spa thinking while complimenting the collection of centuries-old buildings that together make up this very special hotel. This highly sensitive project has been entrusted to renowned, Milan-based, architect and designer Patricia Urquiola.

    The spa preserves the original 19th century vaulted ceilings while incorporating seven treatment rooms, a swimming pool and a Turkish bath with sauna and jacuzzi. There will be a state-of-the-art Technogym fitness studio and a signature hair spa by Rossano Ferretti – one of Italy’s most celebrated hairdressers famous for his “Methodo” cut.

    The spa will be home to a range of treatments by luxury product houses La Prairie and Sodashi. La Prairie has combined innovations in biotechnology with the art of cosmetics and anti-ageing into a range of massage and relaxation techniques, that were specifically created for the spa at Four Seasons Hotel Milano. Sodashi, with its combination of natural elements and essential oils, is the perfect choice for those favouring a holistic and organic approach to wellbeing.

    “Here we have tried to achieve, through a harmonious atmosphere of space, materials and colours, a realisation of beauty that every guest will associate with both an emotional and absolute organic idea of comfort.” says Patricia Urquiola.

    The new Spa will have a soft opening in June 2012.
