Raison d’Etre announces March 1 opening of 3,500sq m Cairo spa

Spa management company Raison d’Etre has announced the opening of a new spa in Cairo, Ki spa, on March 1. The spa, located in the Palm Club, a country club-style venue in the Egyptian capital, will span 3,500sq m and is said to be the largest in Cairo.

The 11 treatment-room spa will feature saunas, steam rooms, an indoor pool, a mediation space, a manicure/pedicure area and a room dedicated to visiting practitioners.

The 11 treatment rooms include a couples’ suite with a private steam room and a whirlpool, and two couples’ suites in the lagoon area. The spa will also comprise a tea garden where clients can relax before and after treatments and a spa café with a focus on healthy cuisine.

Additionally, there will be a 650sq m fitness centre, with a studio for exercise classes, and 10 personal trainers – among other amenities and services.

The concept behind the spa centres on the four elements of fire, water, earth and air: with fire symbolising nurture, water the connection to our emotions, earth grounding and stability and air creativity and inspiration.

The four elements are reflected in the Ki spa treatments, which include the Ayurvedic abhyanga massage, incorporating warm oils to detox and heal, and the Seawater Pearl facial with caviar and seawater pearls.

The spa menu will also feature the Spiced Coffee Detoxifying treatment, using ginger, cardamom, clove and finely ground coffee to exfoliate the body, among other options. 

Swedish spa consultancy Raison d’Etre has designed and consulted on and will manage the launch of the spa, built in collaboration with the Palm Hills Development company.
