Barr + Wray designs the Ritz Carlton Sawangan’s spa in Bali

Pool and spa specialist Barr + Wray designed a bespoke spa experience for Ritz Carlton’s new hotel, Ritz Carlton Sawangan in Bali, Indonesia.

Following the company’s work on the initial spa design, the Hong Kong division of the company was appointed to supply and install the filtration and design of the new Hydro-Vitale pool for the spa, which is set to open in the early part of Autumn of 2015.

The pool's design is manufactured bespoke, and the pool and spa specialists also employed techniques such as treating the water with ultraviolet sterilization to improve water quality.
