The VELA Suites are unique for Ahlbeck. Their architecture differs from that of other new buildings, which often simply imitate the historic style of spa architecture. The designs created by Pott Architects from Berlin and London offer a contemporary interpretation of the old, lavish architecture of the imperial baths, blending the building harmoniously into the protected townscape. The designs for the spacious lobby, elegant wellness area and modern hotel suites are the work of the interior designers at GBP Architekten, who have made a name for themselves with international projects such as the renowned Soho House with Cecconi's restaurant in Mumbai, the Amano Hotel in Berlin, the Industry City in Brooklyn, and the 540 West in New York City. The architects of the Vela Suites duly celebrate the themes of nature, beach and sea by means of authentic materials, colours and accessories.
Every VELA Suite offers personal access to an exceptional spa landscape. This is composed of a spacious swimming pool, several saunas and steam baths with Kneipp paths and fresh air zones, relaxation areas with loungers and warm water beds, ice fountains, tea stations, drinking water fountains and quiet zones with open fireplaces. Those who prefer to relax by means of a workout can take full advantage of the gym before enjoying a massage in one of the treatment rooms.
