The new Berlin spa club is Holmes Place’s 11th facility in Germany, and more clubs are planned


Premium operator Holmes Place opens a new spa club in Berlin, Germany, this month – its fifth club in the city. The €6m, 3,800sq m site is spread over


two levels, including a rooftop terrace offering outdoor classes such as Qi Gong. A Technogym-equipped gym includes 50 internet-connected cardio machines alongside six Kinesis, TRX suspension training and Kinesis Stations. There are also three group exercise studios offering over 90 classes a week: a group cycling studio, holistic studio and Move WELL studio. Xpress 15-minute classes are included in the timetable. The club’s wellness area offers separate


saunas for men and women, as well as a large Finnish sauna and steam room, relaxation


rooms, whirlpool, 20m swimming pool, and a city view terrace with further outdoor classes as well as food and beverage options. The spa has seven treatment rooms, a


manicure/pedicure area, a relaxation room and a large lounge area. The club was designed by London architect Sean Hatcher of MCM Architecture Ltd and interior designer Virginia Azevedo of CREATIVS. The new facility is the operator’s 11th in


Germany – five in Berlin, two in Hamburg, two in Düsseldorf, one in Lübeck and one in Cologne – with more sites planned. Its total estate now encompasses over 80 clubs in 10 countries: Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary and Israel.
