The Mission Hills Hot Springs and Spa is an outdoor themed amenity area for the new 500 room luxury Mission Hills Haikou hotel. The site is approximately 65,000m2 of lush tropical landscape and rockwork and nearly 300 themed individual pool spa experiences from around the world.
Dramatic themed buildings with natural bamboo architecture help define the different areas and compliment the numerous pools, waterfalls and landscape. All these themed areas are tied together with strong and powerful architecture, focusing on the bamboo structure and roof. The existing lava stone found all over the island of Hainan and within the Hot Springs site, plays an important role in defining spaces and further tying the relationship between the built environment and the surrounding natural conditions.
The Spa is designed to create a holistic experience from the moment of arrival at the dramatic semi-circular bamboo building arising from the lava stone base, to the mineral spring’s ritual garden, and the very private and spacious spa villas, overlooking infinity edge water features and pools to the golf course in the background.
EDSA provided detailed design and construction administration services, and has worked with Mission Hills Group on the spa project since 2010.
The Mission Hills resort was accredited as the “World’s Largest Spa Resort” by the Guinness World Records TM back in October 2012.
