Instead of a traditional spa experience where one is focused on themselves, users will relax while being in the company of new friends in an area oriented for conversation and different experiences. On the second floor a bistro and night club allow for a traditional social scene. Self Rooms will be designed away from the areas of activity, remaining small and secluded. This is so guests will have their own secluded getaway from the rest of the social oriented resort to gather themselves and recharge from days of making new friends and acquaintances. Companion The center of the resort only makes sense to contain the center focus of the resort as a whole, to find a companion. Formal and casual eating along with an area for cooking classes allows for a chance to get to know others on a deeper level.

East Wing Hall The East Wing Hall will serve as an area in which guest will gather and wait for their newly made friends and companions while enjoying the foot bath or drinks at the bar. Locker Rooms Locker Rooms will provide a space to prepare themselves to be fully immersed in the social spa atmosphere, social yoga, or simply to enjoy the pool with others. Joined Sauna The Sauna will be connected to both locker rooms not only to allow for a restful moment before leaving the locker room, but will also serve as a secluded place to relax with both sexes. Yoga Studio A Yoga Studio will serve as a place in which guests will be able to meditate together or practice group, or couples yoga in a large open area. Spa Reception The Spa Reception area will serve as a space for guests to wait for others or simply wait for an opening in the massage, pedicure, or manicure areas. Pedicure, Manicure, Massage The full service spa will allow for another option rather than going to the Thermal Spa. Instead retreating to a dark cozy secluded area the spa will allow for a brighter more uplifting spa experience. Pool Lounge Area The Pool area is a place for a more casual meeting. Based around the pool and near the bar, a social area of large daybeds and lounge chairs creates an space where one can socialize and be immersed in the natural context through large windows surrounding the pool. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 2 1 3 5 7 6 4 8

The base serves as a circular bar while the center contains a gas fire pit. This will allow for a center focus of the room for conversation as well as a space to congregate around. Pool lounge Area To create a casual, stereotypical space which people are used to for socializing, a traditional pool lounge will be used fulfill this need.

Angles and circles help with conversation while centers, such as fireplaces create conversation topics or can focus ones attention during conversation gaps. Yoga Studio For the purposes of creating a space in which people can exercise and be active a Yoga Studio will be implemented not only to be peaceful in the scenic landscape, but also to provide a large, open area ideal for group and couples yoga. Yoga is also a popular exercise for the age range which is the target customer. Transition Good spa design is about making sure the guest feels as if they are being transported to a place of relaxation and tranquility away from the rest of the world.

Main Hall Foot Pool While guests are waiting for their newly found friends and acquaintances, they need a place to wait for others while preparing for their immersion into the spa. A solution to this waiting problem is a water feature in which guests can interact. A foot pool will be designed as a bench around a pool with a profile to invite guests to dip their feet in.
