Tylohelo designed four new thermal rooms replaced the existing vitality pool with a beautiful stainless steel design at Hale Country Club & Spa. The internal space was opened up with large glass frontage to all but the steam room. Whilst two feature showers with cool mists and tropical rain were added together with an ice station.
The stainless steel finish complements the modern contemporary styling of the thermal rooms internally and is perfectly robust for the extremes of weather outside. The water features provide relaxing water and air massage inside and out. A vanishing horizon on the outdoor pool section allows views across the countryside and an enticing glimpse for all new arrivals to the club.
The salt sauna is hotter and dry than the traditional Finnish style which is the perfect environment to enjoy the aromas of the Himalayan Salt wall, which is ideal for respiration and relaxation. The full height wall is backlit with 100 fibre optic strands with colour changing options. Underbench heaters discretely provide the warmth throughout, whilst LED lights provide subtle underbench lighting at low level with high level spotlights illuminating the stone wall above the heaters.
The Panoramic sauna as the name suggests looks over the vitality pool to the outside. The ceiling, walls and benches roll seamlessly from front to back creating a relaxing, comfortable space. Juniper log walls run up and alongside to two huge sauna heaters each containing 500 kilos of stone.
Automatic infusion of water and fragrances are sprinkled over the stones creating an invigorating effect. The lighting under the bench beams through the slats and onto the walls and ceiling mimicking the night sky.
The herbal room is a gentle relaxing thermal experience comprising radiant heat from the contoured bench and disguised sauna heater. Water and fragrances are infused with the stones via a copper tray to provide herbal aromas which vary from season to season. Subtle underbench lighting provides low level lighting with a starry sky effect onto the ceiling.
The large steam room has two steam generators that work in tandem with the Tylohelo wellness system providing billowing steam with aroma. The steam outlet has an LED light behind the Sommerhuber ceramic panel to illuminate the steam as it enters the room, whilst the ceiling spotlights reflect onto the shimmering glass mosaics on the walls.
The showers each have three programs of water, fragrance and light. Warm rain, cool mists, and an alternating program for stimulation.
The ice feature is positioned between the main thermal experiences for cooling down. And a light above and in the bowl illuminates the crushed ice.
