WTS International designs Ocean Spa for Marriott Autograph Playa Largo

– Caroline Wilmot

Spa, fitness and lifestyle consultancy and management firm WTS International has designed the 6,000sq ft (557sq m) Ocean Spa at the Marriott Autograph Playa Largo Resort and Spa, which is set to open in Florida later this year.

The first new-build in the Upper Keys in over 20 years, the Key Largo property – which is co-owned by Shaner Hotel Group and Prime Hospitality Group – is also the Marriott Autograph Collection’s 100th property.

The Ocean Spa, designed by WTS, will be the first full-service spa in the Upper Keys and includes a couples’ treatment room and five further treatment rooms, a co-ed lounge, hair and nail salon and a 1,500sq ft (139sq m) fitness centre. It will be operated in-house by spa and wellness director Caroline Wilmot, under the guidance of WTS.

Wilmot will oversee the development of all Ocean Spa's wellness programmes, and will also be responsible for creating spa treatments, managing the salon, the fitness facilities, kids club and spa personnel, as well as running the day-to-day operations.

Ocean Spa’s treatments are inspired by Playa Largo’s seaside location. They use high-end, marine-based products and indigenous flora to create four signature services, including the Tropical Body Glow, a 90-minute scrub and massage that immerses guests in aromatic coconut and pineapple shea butters that exfoliate the skin.

“From the warm welcome and customised experiences, to enjoying refreshing Mango or Hibiscus Tea, to the tropical, ocean-inspired services, our guests will enjoy an island spa experience like no other,” said Wimot.

Other inspired treatments include the Mojito Salt Scrub, the Awaken Coffee Scrub, the Coconut Sugar Scrub and the Ocean Dew and Bamboo Scrub. All are created using locally-sourced fresh, organic ingredients.

“We’re proud to be associated with the first new-build in the Florida Keys in more than 20 years,” said Susie Hammer, vice president of spa operations for WTS. “With Playa Largo we have the opportunity to bring a new level of beauty and wellness to the island and its visitors. It’s a unique spa which provides guests with authentic, local spa experiences.”

Designed and conceptualised by architects Prime Design Associates, with The Gettys Group responsible for its interior design, the US$100m Playa Largo resort features 144 bedrooms and suites, 10 private bungalows, a beach house for small group and corporate events, a waterfront pool, tennis courts, basketball courts, and a large white sand beach.

The resort features a private marina, three signature restaurants, Sandbar, a ballroom with private courtyards, a formal lawn for banquets and weddings, a kids’ activity and nature learning centre, and sports courts.
