In designing the Spa, the architects Koushik and Chandana have been inspired by the 1000 pillar hall in Madurai and the Kalamkari works. The Spa design concept has been taken from the 1000 pillar mandapa of the Meenakshi Temple in Madurai.
The ceiling murals in the main area of the Spa have the tree of life done by the famous Kalamkari painters from Machilipatnam. The work is done by a NGO that works to uplift village artisans.
The ancient temples of the south are associated with a “pradakshina” which leads the penitent believer to “moksha” The spa here is seen as a journey to comparable emancipation even if only a physical one through a series of treatments and experiences.
The entry is designed to be into such a “pradakshina” which leads the visitor to the different treatments spaces and experiences within the spa with the same colours feel and textures as might be felt in an ancient temple to an unknown god.
