The Nayara Spa
Location: New Karnak, Egypt
Scale: 2.5 Acres, 10 treatment rooms, Pool
Design Team: W&A + Schletterer Spas + Focus + PLD + 40NORTH
Construction Cost: $45M USD Total Project
Scope: Full Services
This project is a second phase of the Luxor Hilton Resort & Spa in New Karnak, Egypt. This phase of the project represents an expanded design program of 10 individual treatment rooms, which each have a private plunge pool and outdoor treatment courtyard. Also included is a 150 square meter infinity edge pool overlooking the Nile River. The clustered outdoor treatment rooms were fit in within an existing grove of date palms (phoenix reclinata) in a currently unused and overgrown area of the resort.
40NORTH was responsible for complete design services for the project, from conceptual design through construction administration. 40NORTH has been in coordination with other design consultants throughout the process, working with noted hospitality design firm Wilson & Associates and spa designers Schletterer of Austria. The resort was reopened in the Fall of 2010, but as Egypt’s government collapsed in 2011 and in 2013, the resort’s occupancy rate is understandably suffering greatly.
