BBG-BBGM project is finalist in prestigious 2009 HotelWorld Global Hospitality and Design Awards

March 6, 2009 - Scottsdale, AZ - The newly renovated Spa at the Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego, CA was recently designated as a finalist for Best Spa in the 2009 HotelWorld Global Hospitality and Design Awards. Interior design for the Spa was provided by BBG-BBGM of Scottsdale, AZ, while architectural design was provided by Architects |DWRB of San Diego, CA.
 
“The spa reflects the spirit and old-world setting of the Rancho Bernardo Inn property as well as the beauty of the San Diego hills,” said BBG-BBGM partner-in-charge Kathryn Mickel, who oversaw the project.  
 
The renovation of the spa transformed and expanded existing spa facilities, and added six new private treatment cabanas to the property. For the spa’s interiors, traditional Spanish materials such as cast stone fountains, glass mosaic tiles, wrought iron light fixtures, and distressed wood flooring were used to convey the Spanish Colonial style.  The color palette for fabrics and finishes was comprised of olive and lavender tones inspired by the spa’s seasonal treatments and the trees that line the property.  The new treatment cabanas were designed with exposed wood beams and Saltillo roofing. Set along a landscaped garden path complete with a stream-like water feature, the cabanas make the spa reminiscent of an “Aldea,” Spanish for “small village.”
