Seabourn has introduced its first Penthouse Spa Suites on its award-winning new trio of intimate ships.
Seabourn Quest has emerged from a recent scheduled drydock boasting four new elegant Penthouse Spa Suites located directly above the industry leading Spa at Seabourn facility. The new suites will also be added to Seabourn Odyssey and Seabourn Sojourn during their next scheduled drydocks.
The Spa at Seabourn has twice been awarded the SpaFinder® Wellness Readers’ Choice Award as “Best Spa on a Cruise Ship”. Guests access the new Penthouse Spa Suites via a spiral staircase in the lobby of the spa, and enjoy unlimited access to the spa’s Serene Area, as well as spa amenities in the suite itself and the services of a spa concierge during the voyage.
“A growing number of our guests choose Seabourn’s new ships specifically because of our beautiful onboard Spa at Seabourn facilities,” Seabourn President Richard Meadows said. “Some of these guests have expressed a desire to incorporate a more complete spa vacation experience into their cruises, and our Penthouse Spa Suites are designed to fulfill that wish.”
Seabourn commissioned the Norwegian architecture and design firm of Yran & Storbraaten, who designed Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest, to come up with a plan to use the section of Deck 10 directly above the spa for the new accommodations. The result is four spacious suites with 48–50 square metres of inside space and expansive private verandas of 16 square metres offering views over the ship’s stern and the sea. The suites’ décor is coordinated with that of the Spa at Seabourn, and all feature a living and a dining area with seating for four, a separate bedroom, walk-in closet, glass door and floor-to-ceiling windows onto the veranda, a bathroom with a tub and special spa shower, and two flat-screen TVs.
The new suites offer guests a variety of healthy amenities and spa specialties. Along with the guests’ personal beverage preferences, a second in-suite bar is also fully stocked with flavoured water and fruit juices, and a selection of mixed nuts, dried fruits and healthy snacks. Guests can choose a calming fragrance from a selection of four by L’Occitane, to be diffused throughout the suite during the evening turndown. Relaxing, soothing spa music is available as a background soundtrack in the suite. The bathrooms feature a new menu of Molton Brown specialty spa products, such as exfoliating body wash and polish and thermal salts body soak, in addition to the company’s high end line of bath products that are available in every suite. Upon arrival, guests are invited to select from a menu of luxurious bath sponges, as well as designer soaps by Hermes, L’Occitane, Baudelaire and Salvatore Ferragamo.
A Spa Concierge assists guests booked in the Penthouse Spa Suites with reservations for their personalised treatment regimes throughout their stay. Guests have daily access to the spa’s Serene Area, which features heated lounges, an aroma steam bath with salt inhalation, and a herbal bath. In the Serene Area aboard Seabourn Odyssey is a large hydro-pool, while Seabourn Quest and Seabourn Sojourn feature a Kneipp Walk Pool, providing holistic, water therapy treatment and healing remedies designed to enhance circulation.
The Spa at Seabourn offers a variety of unique, healthy spa experiences and luxurious pampering services and treatments, including Chinese reflexology, aromatherapy, and Thai massages. The fitness centre features a range of high-tech exercise, cardio and strength equipment; a motion studio with the Kinesis System; and a variety of fitness classes, including yoga, Pilates and tai chi. Personal trainers are also available to develop customised workout routines for guests.
