Kohler, the bathroom fixtures company, revealed its fifth branded spa in Chicago, USA in mid-October.
True to its roots, the 20,000sq ft Kohler Waters Spa Lincoln Park offers the brand’s signature hydrotherapy treatments, alongside location-specific therapies, as well as a range of hydrothermal amenities and full-service salon.
Lavender Rain and Rain Man are two signature treatments which celebrate water by using Kohler’s Custom Vichy Shower. Lasting 50 minutes, they cost US$159 (€143, £123) and US$151 (€136, £117) in the week.
The urban retreat also offers results-oriented and personalised services to those seeking sanctuary from the everyday grind of Chicago and its harsh Windy City weather. Highlights include a CBD-infused massage, a Phytomer seaweed detox wrap and the 50-minute, US$180 (€162, £140) City Life Facial which uses concentrated oils, charcoal mud, serums and plant essences to draw out toxins and remineralise the skin.
Water is incorporated into the spa at every turn, starting with a custom-designed waterfall behind the check-in desk. A Thermal Suite is a focal point and its pièce de résistance is a hydromassage pool, designed by executive chair Herb Kohler, which is surrounded by blue-hued mosaic tiles to emulate the movement of water. There’s also a hydrotherapy circuit with a steamroom, sauna and plunge pool.
Kohler Waters Spa Lincoln Park also serves as an immersive showroom to display some of Kohler’s plumbing products. Two of the 21 treatment rooms feature its vichy showers while other treatment suites and changing rooms boast its DTV Prompt digital showering system and modern wall-hung Veil Intelligent Toilets.
Kohler’s newest spa development joins four other locations: the flagship Kohler Waters Spa in Kohler, Wisconsin – a village which grew up around the original Kohler manufacturing plant; two other US sites; and one in Scotland, UK.
In an interview with Spa Business, Garrett Mersberger, the group’s director of wellness, says it’s working on another potential Kohler Waters Spa in the US for 2020 (see SB18/2 p24).
