Los Angeles’ iconic Century Plaza Hotel has been transformed into a new luxury Fairmont property after a US$2.5bn (€2.1bn, £1.8bn) investment.

The iconic, crescent shaped hotel has hosted generations of Hollywood celebrities, foreign dignitaries and multiple US Presidents, since opening in 1966.

International design firm Yabu Pushelberg has reimagined the destination, which is set to open in Q2 2021.

Fairmont Century Plaza will house a brand new 14,000sq ft luxury spa alongside 351 guest rooms and 49 suites.

The spa will be complete with nine treatment rooms including two suites and two couples’ rooms, all outfitted with custom-made stylish treatment tables by Italian spa and wellness equipment supplier Lemi.

Fairmont has appointed Lemi as the sole equipment provider for the facility.

Inspired by nature, the chic spa has been realised with light wooden tones, intricate woodwork, floor-to-ceiling marble and clean lines and features.

Magdaleena Nikolov, director of spa and wellness, told Spa Business the treatment menu will also take inspiration from nature, with offerings including a signature Sunset treatment to transport guests to the moment of pause experienced while watching a glorious sunset.

Treatments will be powered by professionals skincare brands Lilfox and Dr Levy Switzerland.

“We’ll also be introducing a series of high-tech and effective biohacking treatments that will specifically focus on sleep, de-stress, and mental wellness,” added Nikolov.

“More than ever wellness has become part of everyday lives – so we not only wanted to provide a place where guests can continue their wellness journey but also where we help them elevate it.

“We’re excited to provide our guests with state-of-the-art technology, world-class specialists and effective treatments and products that aren’t available anywhere else.”

Separate-sex changing rooms will be equipped with aromatherapy steamrooms, hammams, salt rooms, experiential rain showers and sanariums.

Guests will also be able to visit two esthetic rooms, one of which will be home to the first US-based Dr Rita Rakus Clinic.

A salon area will offer facilities for hairstyling, make-up application and nail services.

The spa will be completed with a Technogym-equipped gym and luxury boutique retailing hand-selected products ranging from sustainable goods to local Los Angeles’ handcrafted items.

When the hotel opens it will offer a preview of the spa until local restrictions are eased. This will include a curated treatment selection as well as nutrition, wellness and biohacking services by OZ Garcia Wellness.

Guests will also be able to access private gym and mediation spaces equipped by Technogym and content from wellness tech company Three Sages, all taking place in private hotel suites.

Centrally located in the heart of Century City, the new Fairmont Century Plaza is conveniently near Los Angeles’ best neighbourhoods and attractions.

Set on a former 1950s movie studio lot among glittering skyscrapers, trendy cafés and condo lofts, its backdrop is home to entertainment industry giants, CAA talent agency and the legendary 20th Century Fox Studios.

The overhaul has also seen the addition of extensive event space, four dining concepts and 63 luxury residences.
