The Anda Spa is a modern wellness retreat in the historic Hotel Ivy in downtown Minneapolis. From andaspa.com: “The philosophy at Anda Spa, a Swedish word meaning ‘spirit’, is rooted in balance. Our modern wellness retreat focuses on a deeper sense of well-being, allowing you to reconnect your body, mind and spirit.”
Helo was proud to work with the Anda Spa to create a sauna that seamlessly integrates with the total spa experience. The sauna includes comfortable 2-level benches for sitting or lying down—with a window to the spa area. A key design element of the sauna is a large piece of black Cambria quartz with white “heatwave”—installed on the back wall above the heater.
