We approached the renovation as an opportunity to put ourselves in our guests' slippers. The results will be echoed through an energy and vibe that is brighter and modern, further complemented by more functional space.

The Spa at Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans, US, is set to undergo a major renovation that will see the addition of new relaxation spaces and treatment rooms.
The renovation, which is scheduled to complete in early Autumn, will be spearheaded by Houston-based design firm Montgomery Roth Architecture & Interior Design and forms part of a larger renovation, worth $15m, taking place across the entire property.
As well as the new treatment rooms and relaxation areas, the renovation will include the expansion of the changing areas and modifications to existing relaxation areas. New furnishings, artwork and lighting will also be installed.
The Spa willl also see the addition of new infrared saunas, supplied by Viking Leisure, a New Orleans-based provider of sauna and steam rooms. The new saunas will operate at a lower temperature and use infrared panels in place of a conventional heat source, allowing users to experience a more intense sweat at a lower temperature.
In addition, The Spa has signed new brand partnerships with Diptyque, a Parisian company specialising in bodycare, fragrance and homewares, and HOBO, a luxury leather goods company. The brands will be introduced into the boutique, alongside exisiting product partners: Tata Harper, SLIP, Skinceuticals, Mason Pearson and Lunya Sleepware. Diptyque will also become the official line of in-room amenities throughout the hotel.
Sharla Martin, spa director at Windsor Court, said: "We approached the renovation as an opportunity to put ourselves in our guests' slippers. Our team considered what guests already value about The Spa, but also how we could improve their experience and enhance our offerings. The results will be echoed through an energy and vibe that is brighter and modern, further complemented by more functional space."
