Bangkok, 1 May 2015. GOCO Hospitality is proud to announce the opening of its first GOCO Spa in Europe. Located on a private island in the Venetian Lagoon and a short private boat ride from the beautiful and iconic city, GOCO Spa Venice is nestled amongst the tranquil gardens of the JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa.

GOCO Spa delivers an exclusive and crafted wellness journey that embraces both traditional and modern spa modalities. Guests are invited to indulge in luxury wellbeing, within the natural surroundings of Isola delle Rose while enjoying stunning panoramic views of the historic Venice skyline.

With a wellbeing menu that authentically reflects the Venetian surroundings, GOCO Spa Venice captures the passion and zest for life that is indicative of Italian culture, resulting in genuine, attentive, personalised service and a cutting-edge design aesthetic. Designed in collaboration with award-winning Italian architect and interior design firm Matteo Thun & Partners, GOCO Spa Venice is the most comprehensive spa in the city, offering over 1,750 sqm of dedicated indoor and outdoor wellness experiences.

The main spa building has been carefully restored to maintain the high ceilings and wooden pitched roof while being modernized with simple, natural materials from the local area. As well as the waterside Spa Suite, the spa houses six treatment rooms, all with outdoor decks and sun loungers, and two specially adapted beauty suites for advanced facial treatments. In the summer, guests can choose to have treatments in one of four outdoor cabanas, or by the pool. The indoor and outdoor aquatonic pool offers air and water jet features such as Hydro back benches, air tubs and neck massage jets that stimulate the metabolism and are especially beneficial for those suffering from muscular pain. Hot loungers and outdoor relaxation areas are available around the pool with uninterrupted views over the Venetian lagoon.

GOCO Hospitality has appointed Giorgia Bogoni as Spa Director. Giorgia who was born in Venice has worked as Spa Manager in well-known spas in Italy for the past seven years. Her excellent knowledge of luxurious and holistic spa concepts, combined with her fluency in English, French and of course Italian will help her to establish GOCO Spa Venice as one of the leading spas in the city.

“We are excited about the opening of our first GOCO Spa on the beautiful island of Isola delle Rose”, said Ingo Schweder, Founder & CEO of GOCO Hospitality. “GOCO Spa Venice offers a comprehensive wellness menu that conveys a sense of harmony. We offer our guests a blend of classic spa rituals and modern beauty treatments, complemented by luxurious thermal experiences that stimulate and sustain the body and mind.”
