HOTEL & SPA PEACE AND T Tiles from Designworks Tiles were specified to create

Hotel swimming pools and spas are renowned for calmness and serenity, with guests usually booking in to relax and unwind. It’s important when creating these spaces to set the right tone and atmosphere, and one of the best ways to achieve this is through choosing the right tiles. The pool and spa at the Headland Hotel in Newquay, Cornwall, is the perfect example of this.

Featuring minimalistic and neutral décor, this pool and spa area embodies a calming atmosphere, helping to create the ideal space to relax in. Many pools and spas are now incorporating natural, earthy elements to create a peaceful haven and, thanks to significant advancements in tile printing technology, wet areas in both commercial and domestic settings can now embrace a natural style with slip-resistant wood- and stone-effect tiles. The Designworks Tiles Zen range features mosaics that mimic natural stone, marble or wood – the perfect choice if you’re looking to create a space with a sense of balance and harmony. Tiles inspired by raw materials, such as the stunning pebble wall at the Headland Hotel and Spa, are naturally the way forward.

The pool and spa area was designed by Lilly Lewarne Architects and pool contractors Aqua Platinum Projects.

Commenting on the installation, Aqua Platinum Projects said: “The Headland Hotel Aqua Club was an extremely challenging project, from start to finish. With our brief to ‘wow’ the client, Aqua Platinum Projects wanted to design and build a project that was extraordinary but sympathetic to the surroundings, from the wavy wall throughout the lap pool to the deck-level swimming pools and curved glass front sauna but, not least, the outdoor sunset spa. The result: our client’s expectations were achieved over and above.”

Robb Kelleher, Contract Sales Manager at Designworks Tiles, added: “This was a fantastic project to be a part of.

At Designworks Tiles, we pride ourselves on being able to supply a wide range of tiles to suit specific project specifications. From the bespoke pebbled wall to tailored pool grilles and surrounds, the pool and spa at the Headland Hotel is a project with a real wow factor.”

Designworks Tiles offers an extensive tile range, from wall and floor tiles in an impressive selection of styles to statement, innovative mosaics which have been designed specifically for swimming pools. These pool mosaics feature a patented JointPoint system which has replaced traditional and less effective mesh material, allowing for easier installation and a 92% adhesive grip surface.

There is also no compromise with safety when choosing tiles from Designworks Tiles as all products offer a quality, slip-resistant finish, ensuring they’re practical for pool and spa settings. Designworks also offers bespoke poolside grilles, as well as a tailored cutting service where tiles can be supplied in a variety of shapes and sizes for a premium finish.

When it comes to designing a pool, there are many factors to consider, including the size of the space, desired style and functionality. Designworks’ mosaic pool tiles are brilliant for pools and offer something different, rather than the standard turquoise hue. With the number of options available, a great variety of looks to complement various moods can be easily established. Choose red, yellow and orange colourways to create a warming, friendly atmosphere or, taking these tones a step further, opt for a gold metallic effect which glistens under lighting to provide a sophisticated, luxurious vibe.

The Designworks team pride themselves on offering superior customer service and can offer tile guidance throughout every project phase, from design to installation.
