Case Study

Faena Hotel, Miami, FL

The Faena Group did a complete renovation of the fabled Saxony Hotel in late 2015, including the installation of a South America-inspired spa, called Tierra Santa Healing Spa.

Tapping into the trend for more communal spaces, the hydrothermal journey created by DFL for Tierra Santa is completely co-ed and designed to cultivate transformative healing by combining indigenous ingredients and state-of-the-art purifying wet spa areas, including a waterfall shower, a traditional Turkish-style hammam, a cleansing eucalyptus steam room, a hydrotherapy room for mud and scrub treatments, a sauna featuring beautifully-curved, handcrafted benches and walls made from Canadian Hemlock, an ice parlor for cooling and a tepidarium for final relaxation.
Faena Hotel's 2,000SF Hydrothermal Area was designed by Design for Leisure in consultation with Inge Theron & Associates, Revuelta and Bazmark.
