SMART SPAS
Architect and Interiors India|January 2022

BINDU GOPAL RAO

A spa is the abode of tranquility and rejuvenation. And for a designer, making a spa design work involves experimentation of colours, textures, accessories, and fixtures that spell luxury and comfort.

PRODUCT PROFILE

Colston has a whole range of wellness products that includes Infrared Sauna Room Cabins which are personalised sauna stations with adaptive chromotherapy lighting. The Colston Outdoor Alpha Pool is a marvel of technology, combining hot tub and swimming pool features in one modular installation. “Our outdoor pools, with temperature and pressure control, are perfect for personalised swimming routines. And our hydromassage tubs are perfect for all ages to indulge in relaxing hydrotherapy to accompany spa treatments,” says Anil Ahuja, Director, Colston Bath and Spa Pvt. Ltd. The Indian bathroom has evolved into a lifestyle and wellness space. “The concept of individualisation has come into focus, factors such as ergonomics of a product play an essential role.

For example, the Rainfinity shower range with PowderRain spray that cocoons your body in thousands of micro-fine droplets,” says Gaurav Malhotra, MD, India & Regional Lead, Key Hospitality Accounts.
