Spa Alila - Alila Marea Beach Resort, Encinitas

Spa Alila is a wellness spa within the Alila Marea Beach Resort (Encinitas, California) that offers a relaxation sanctuary for hotel guests and locals to enjoy for rejuvenation at its finest.

Helo enjoyed working with Alila Marea Beach Resort to create two saunas (a men's sauna & women's sauna) for guests to enjoy ultimate seaside relaxation. The sauna's unique curved walls and ceiling reflects the ocean inspired design of the resort.

The large sauna includes two tiers of benches allowing plenty of space for guests to relax lying down or sitting. With the combination of clear vertical grain Canadian Hemlock interior, soft diffused lighting and the Laava heater with Water Technology, a soothing heat bathing experience is guaranteed.
