A new Espa-operated spa has opened in Tbilisi, Georgia, complete with five treatment rooms and a host of wet and thermal facilities
The wellness facility is a product of a collaboration between Espa's Design and Consultancy branch, Hat Design Lab and Marriott
Highlights at the spa include a two-floor glass-fronted façade containing the spa's bathing area and wet and thermal zones
Programming at the spa consists of Espa facials, body treatments, massages and exclusive locally-inspired signature rituals
A new three-floor Espa spa has opened in Tbilisi – the capital city of Georgia – at Marriott's new hotel, Paragraph Freedom Square, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Tbilisi.

The spa is situated on the upper three levels of the 220-room hotel and offers breathtaking panoramic views of Tbilisi's skyline.

The spa’s design is characterised by organic lines and a mix of materials featuring metal, glass and polished stone that contrast with natural textures and provide an urban feel.

Realised by Espa’s Design and Consultancy branch and architecture and interiors firm Hat Design Lab, the spa features a dramatic two-storey façade framing the view of the city’s iconic Freedom Square.

Together, the glass-fronted levels encompass an indoor vitality and swimming pool, an outdoor infinity pool, a panoramic sauna, a herbal sauna, a dry salt sauna, a herbal steamroom, an ice cave, an ice fountain and two experience showers.

Additionally, there are five treatment rooms each with a private outdoor terrace, a couples spa suite with a private terrace featuring an outdoor shower and hot tub, a relaxation lounge and a terrace with city views.

A gym, a yoga studio, a retail boutique, an interactive Prama circuit training studio, a juice bar and a spa café complete the offering.

Daniel Golby, Espa managing director, said: “We’re thrilled to announce the launch of the Paragraph Spa in Tbilisi. Espa’s dedicated Design and Consultancy team collaborated closely with Paragraph Hotel and Marriott group to craft a luxurious retreat, ensuring an opulent experience for all guests.”

Programming at the spa consists of Espa facials, body treatments, massages and exclusive signature rituals which draw inspiration from Georgia’s heritage and natural healing resources.

Design vision
Hat Design Lab explained the vision behind the new wellness facility, saying: “We imagined a space where guests are transported on a seamless, elegant – yet warm – and comforting journey, exalting their senses in a locally inspired enriching experience.

“We were motivated by the duality of climates in Georgia – which is one of the most ecologically diverse countries in the world, with climatic zones ranging from subtropical to high alpine to semi-desert.

“The duality is also perceived between rural and authentic mountain experiences tangled with luxurious city lifestyle. We translated the local experience through a natural selection of textures, serene colours with vibrant detailing and locally inspired art patterns.”
