SAUSALITO, Calif., Jan. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Overlooking Sausalito's boat-filled harbor on Richardson's Bay, Casa Madrona Hotel & Spa is welcoming the year by unveiling a multi-million-dollar renovation with a focus on the lobby and a new Wellness Experience which debuted on January 11. To further evolve the luxury destination, this renovation infused the historic property with an innovative approach to wellness and design, creating the perfect destination for travelers seeking to maintain their health and well-being while on the road.
The multi-million-dollar renovation is the second for Casa Madrona in the last seven years. The recent renovation focused on the following spaces: newly constructed modern lobby with 20 foot stone wall and co-working space; the spa with three bright treatment rooms; a dedicated Wellness Courtyard with a 62-inch television featuring Fitness-On-Demand workouts; and nine dedicated Wellness Guest Rooms, with tech forward amenities. The final stage of the renovation, due to be completed Spring 2019, is a cutting-edge fitness room with Peloton spin bikes and classes.
The design of the lobby at Casa Madrona was led by California-based integrated design studio SALT + BONES. The newly rebuilt lobby is an inspiring space that encourages guests to lounge longer, including ample space to focus on their business needs. The team at SALT + BONES drew inspiration from the sea, including the materials of luxury yachts, and incorporated standout pieces comprised of sand and salt such as the Ridge Table and Drift Mirror, both designed by Fernando Mastrangelo. Further design partners include a custom artwork installation from Christina Watka, a free-handed mural artwork from Marta Johnson of Sausalito and custom light fixtures from Apparatus studio.
