A spa in Gran Canaria has installed a treatment room designed to simulate life as an unborn child.
The low-lit room is filled with 'blood-coloured' water beds 'designed to indicate the amniotic sac'
‘The Womb Room’ – part of the Corallium Spa at Gran Canaria’s Lopesan Costa Meloneras resort – includes a range of features designed to “re-create the journey of life starting with where it all began: the womb”.
The entrance to the room, or the “the neck of the uterus”, is a passageway fashioned out of pink carpet, while the treatment room itself, containing pink carpets splashed with red fabric, revolves slowly “to simulate a giant umbilical cord”.
The low-lit room is filled with “blood-coloured” water beds “designed to indicate the amniotic sac”.
Music, described by the hotel as "breathy", is also piped into the room to re-create the noises heard inside the womb.
“According to recent research around 60 per cent of adults suffer from sleep problems and one third from insomnia,” said a spokeswoman. “The Womb Room could be the answer to those restless night.”
She added that customer feedback had been very positive.
The Womb Room is open to all guests who book a treatment at the hotel's spa. Prices for treatments start at 35 euros. Click here for more information.
