The Holiday Club Spa Hotel on the island of Vasili in St Petersburg, Russia will open to the public this summer.
The property, which his owned by UK-based London & Regional Properties, is currently under construction and the spa wing is scheduled to open in September.
The 276-room, 60m euro (£40m, US$78m) hotel will include seven restaurants, a large health and fitness facility and 12 conference rooms. The total area of construction is 25,000sq m (270,000sq ft).
Spa facilities will include treatment rooms, an extensive ‘sauna world’ – including hammams, saunas and steam rooms – as well as a number of swimming pools and a large relaxation area.
The spa will be located in the basement of the property, and original features of the existing building – which used to serve as a large cellar for storing wines – were used in the design.
The site will become the seventh spa to operate under a partnership deal between Finnish company Sokotel and London & Regional’s Finnish brand, Holiday Club.
According to the agreement, Sokotel will focus on the day-to-day operations of the hotel and spa, while Holiday Club will concentrate on developing a strong brand concept.
The partnership was announced in March 2006, when Sokotel agreed a management contract for Holiday Club’s portfolio of six Finnish spa resorts.
Sokotel is part of the Finnish company Suomen Osuuskauppojen Keskuskunta.
