The Bella Spa is Guernsey's newest and most exclusive spa situated in the grounds of the picturesque Bella Luce Hotel. In addition to having a hand in the design, Bonsai were suppliers and main contractors on the project which we managed to turn around from start to finish in an incredible 10 weeks. It is a project we are all very proud of and showcases the best of Bonsai as we utilised several offerings from 'Elements' as well as a good deal of our bespoke work alongside it. In additon to the general carpentry and installation of the storage units in each room, the following products were used:
The main entrance with custom lettering and one of our 'Sensu' front doors hand finished in white to compliment the scheme.
A custom pushplate with the Spa's logo which we had created by our suppliers 'Philip Watts Design'
A shot of the reception area featuring custom-made shelving and storage; a hand-distressed and antique parquet floor and matching bespoke reception desk; custom branded aluminium pushplates and logo plates, and a 'Dooria' walnut doorset leading to the treatment areas which is half-finished in white on the reception side.
A closeup of the oak parquet which Bonsai hand-distressed and finished after installation with a combination of' Old English' antique pigment and several coats of 'Treatex' commercial grade hard-wax oil for ease of maintenance and maximum durability. To the left, the open door to the treatment area is visible showing the walnut door and darker polished plaster walls, providing a great contrast to the stark white of the reception area.

In one of the treatment rooms, the polished plaster walls are more visible as is the 'Celenio' floor in slate finish. Also visible is the repro Barcelona chair, also sourced by Bonsai Elelements.
Some stunning custom door handles supplied by another of our favourite manufacturers 'Turnstyle Designs seen here adorning the walnut Dooria doorset. They feature a rich brown leather chosen by the client and installed by Turnstyle at the factory before being shipped to Bonsai for fitting.
In contrast to the walnut door and handle, here is another Turnstyle handle this time finished with white leather, also supplied by the client, to compliment the white finished door.
A closeup of some more custom ironmongery in the form of cabinet handles also from Turnstyle Designs. These are fitted to gloss white units which can be seen next to a chunky walnut worktop created by Bonsai Bespoke.
