La laguna de Inúu inspirada en Pamukkale

A few weeks ago, we wrote about Caldea Tower and its unique architecture. To continue that theme, today we want to talk about Inúu and specifically its main indoor lagoon. To mark Caldea’s 25th anniversary, we’d like to explain a little more about its history through the architecture

Inúu: Caldea’s newest spa

We opened Inúu in 2013, adding a new thermalism concept to Caldea’s offer and enhancing the facilities with the most innovative materials. This spa is aimed at an audience aged 16 and above who are seeking a 360º experience. Like the rest of the building, it was designed by architect Jean Michel Ruols.

Pamukkale: the inspiration for the indoor lagoon

When creating Inúu’s main space, the architect drew inspiration from the shapes of this breathtaking natural geological formation, devising a perfect combination of architecture and thermal water – the two major pillars of Caldea.
The famous natural pools of Pamukkale can be found in the Denizli province in Anatolia (Turkey) and have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1988. The water from the thermal springs emerges at temperatures that vary from 35º to 100º and it also shares certain properties with our own water: iron, sulphur and magnesium. Its name means “Cotton Castle” as the enormous brilliant-white limestone walls can be seen from far around and resemble huge approaching clouds.
You will recognise the similarity with Pamukkale in Inúu’s three lagoons, which form a waterfall. The main differences are that they have been constructed using stainless steel, and they have jets of varying pressures and light displays to make your experience even more relaxing. Are you going to come and try them?
