The Elemis flagship day-spa in Mayfair, London celebrated its 8th Anniversary in January 2009. The only Elemis-owned spa in the UK, with two ‘sister’ spas in Hong Kong and Miami, this award-winning destination is renowned for being the home of Noella Gabriel’s full range of signature Elemis therapies, celebrity discretion, incredible therapists and a remarkable 40% male clientele! They just love it!
In recent months, the Elemis day-spa has undergone a beautiful, yet subtle and sophisticated, redesign and transformation. Spearheaded by Elemis Director of Marketing, Oriele Frank who quotes:
“The spa has always had a wonderful aura, warmth and peace about it. You watch people walk in the door and it’s like all their troubles melt away for a few hours, their shoulders drop and they re-connect with themselves. We didn’t want to completely change the look, just enhance their sensorial journey with beautiful warm natural colours and layers of texture, whilst offering an even more sophisticated consultation environment, in line with how the Elemis brand has evolved.”
As a British brand, Elemis felt it was important to support other British designers in the vision for the future of the spa, working with SALT, Haywood Trimmings, WAWA, James Williamson, Lombok and SD2 to complete the transformation.
The Sensory Lounge with SkinLab and SpaBar
As you enter the Sensory Lounge, the beautiful Jab silk fabric drapes with hand-made tassel tiebacks by Haywood Trimmings frame the windows giving a wonderful warm feeling that you have arrived ‘home’ from the bustle of the city.
Richard Ward, bespoke furniture-maker, from WAWA, designed and hand-made the sofas with a chic home-from-home style. Elemis commissioned leading St Martin’s designer, June Swindell, whose company salt created all the sumptuous hand-woven wall-hangings around the spa.
At the far end of the room, Elemis has introduced a ‘serious’ consultation area with the Elemis SkinLab and SpaBar. Here you are offered a complimentary SkinLab consultation, comprising of thorough lifestyle analysis that helps the Elemis therapist to identify the skin’s real needs and effectively prescribe her customised treatment and homecare routine.
The SkinLab produces six images of your skin that assesses UV exposure (characteristic of photo damage), pores, evenness and porphyrins (evidence of bacteria lodged in pores which can lead to acne), spots and wrinkles.
The SpaBar with its six palettes provides a simple way of browsing and playing with the Elemis range.
Beyond the sensory lounge lies three sumptuous suites, two of which have been completely transformed, with eight treatment rooms and the infamous two-seater traditional Rasul, restored to its former radiance.
Look out for new treatments from Noella Gabriel, Elemis Director of Product and Treatment Development, later in 2009.
