Elegance and serenity are two words that come to mind when describing the Mediterranean-influenced interior design of The Spa at Sea Island. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa is adorned with black metal lanterns and chandeliers, arched doorways, white pillars, dark wood and Turkish rugs. Natural stone is one of the most common materials found throughout this spa — it nicely complements the neutral walls and several fireplaces scattered throughout the 65,000-square-foot space.
Perhaps the most unique interior design feature at this luxury spa is its sunny garden atrium, a 2.5-story outdoors-like oasis littered with trees — including a tall embalmed olive tree — plants and filled with the sound of running “creek” water. Along the bubbling brook, step onto the floor made of large, smooth stones, where you can sink into a cushy hunter-green armchair and ottoman to squeeze some reading in while waiting for your therapist. Just as impressive is the Sea Island spa’s water atrium, which features an elevated pool with a massive waterfall overlooking the resplendent, quiet gardens. Go outside to the gardens to walk the labyrinth and peek at the koi fish swimming in the pond.
