The word “SPA” is said to have been an acronym for the Latin phrase Salus Per Aquam, which is translated to, “Health Through Water”. This phrase was the inspiration behind the newly renovated Spa at The Emerson Resort, which re-opened in late September. 

CAMA used a variety of river stone flooring to mimic the Esopus Creek, which flows behind the resort. A beautiful vessel and lighting fixture in the entrance vestibule sets a peaceful tone and allows visitors to pause and appreciate the breathtaking surroundings. From this vestibule, visitors are led into a comfortable lounge that offers beautiful views outside and nature-inspired design details including glass features engraved with botanical designs.

CAMA is working closely with The Emerson Resort & Spa to update and unify the design of interiors across the resort’s campus in an effort to rebrand The Emerson as a restorative destination for wellbeing where one can replenish mind, body, and soul.
