The vision

David Lloyd wanted to elevate the sound experience at their premium spa, to create a truly harmonious and holistic environment for their guests.

The Project

As David Lloyd’s preferred technology partner, we were asked to deliver an integrated audio solution capable of uniting the different spa zones.

There were several key environmental challenges. The large outdoor spa garden, sauna and steam room and all required audio solutions that could handle the challenging heat and humidity.

David Lloyd also wanted to deliver audio for bathers in the hydrotherapy pool, even when underwater.

The solution

We separated the audio solution into zones, ranging from treatment rooms to relaxation areas to the health bar. This enabled selection of music types and volume level that complemented each spa activity.

Collaborating with the client, architect, and interior designers we coordinated the speaker placement in each zone to compliment the aesthetics. We used IP rated Bose speakers that were capable of withstanding heat, humidity, outdoor and even underwater environments.

In 2019 the site also added Soundwave therapy to their spa, we assisted the team with integrating the package with personal headphone listening points in each meditation room.

The whole solution was controlled via a central iPad complete with automation software.

The result

Thanks to careful planning, expert technical design and painstaking attention to detail, we were able to deliver a 5-star audio solution for David Lloyd, and a 5-star spa experience for their guests.

“Through consultation with our project management team, Hutchison Technologies provided an audio visual system that carefully considered the intended purpose of each specific area whether that be a treatment room, outdoor or underwater! The result is an audio visual system that produces sound and style that’s right for each individual area, our Spa and the brand and therefore improves our own customers’ experience.”
