Marilyn Monroe Signature Spa at The Hyatt Grand Cypress

Project Summary

Marilyn’s life produced some of world’s most iconic images.  Through those images, people experience Marilyn in many different ways from luxurious and seductive to casual and comfortable.  Whether in a gown or in jeans Marilyn epitomizes a timeless beauty and even today, many years after her passing the world still recognizes her as a symbol of sensuality, free spirit and glamour.

S3 Design felt that in order to design a concept for the Glamour bar they needed to first understand how the three spa unit types would be conceptualized.  The three unit types, Nail Boutique, Glamour Room and Signature Spa, capture both the attributes and the uniqueness of Marilyn to establish a guiding personality for each offering.

Signature Spa: A spa of this quality must convey Marilyn at her most luxurious - a space that glows like a red gown, accessorized with the most elegant gems.  As locations are determined for the Luxurious Spa, the level of elegance must be tailored to the nuances of each destination.  S3 envisions a space that is contemporary and clean with touches of classic style.  The contrast becomes a metaphor for how Marilyn continues to capture the hearts and minds of multiple generations.
