Designing Spa

POP Spa and Lounge for the Vida Hotel in Dubai

Emaar Group approached us about designing a new Spa and Lounge for their Vida Hotel in downtown Dubai. Basically, they want to refresh some of the amenities in this iconic Dubai hotel; they also want to attract the next gen-X, Y and Z culture as guests with our “wellness” design.


On September 16, 2019 Robert D. Henry and Daniella Russell made a presentation to attendees of the Top Hotel World Conference in Dubai. The presentation was about the POP Spa and Lounge project design for the Vida Hotel. The presentation was not only well received, but was given innovation kudos by the hoteliers, developers, and design aficionados in attendance.


Dubai craves innovation, so this new Spa and Lounge design certainly fits the bill.

Located within the Vida Hotel in downtown Dubai, POP provides a “quick fix” experience that leaves young guests happy and regenerated. POP celebrates the local community combined with an understanding of what the ‘X,Y & Z-generation’ is looking for.


The interior environment for POP Spa & Lounge not only looks good, but smells and tastes good as well. Guests can ‘bliss out’ at the POP spa and renew body and soul at the POP lounge.
