ARA Spa by Ameristar Casinos

ARA Spa is fun and friendly.   NRi was proud to be part of the design team of this delightful 6-treatment room spa in Ameristar’s newest hotel and casino in Black Hawk, one of Colorado’s most charming cities.

Location: Black Hawk, Colorado
Doors Opened: October, 2009
NRi Provided:  Design Development, Construction Documentation, Equipment Specs
Design Team: PGAV Architects (architecture); Wilson and Associates (interior design)

Lynn Curry, NRi’s leader on this project, says “The Ameristar family is a very professional group with a strong work ethic in a fun environment.  We took great pleasure in helping to create a fabulous spa design and concept in this fresh and beautiful casino hotel. Ameristar’s company culture is innovative and unique, and we wanted the spa concept to espouse this sense of vibrancy and enthusiasm, and also to be non-intimidating and comfortable.  Together with the talented teams of Wilson and PGAV, this charismatic little spa came to life and is now successfully managed by Plus One. 

“The casino / spa combination is proving to be a great partnership.  Guests will be able to enjoy the spa, the casino, magnificent restaurants, and the beautiful hotel rooms, all on-site.  The lovely lighting, fresh colors, water features, fireplaces, and cheerful staff are all delightful. As if all of this weren’t enough – there’s also an outdoor spa deck and rooftop pool with doors that slide open to reveal the aspen covered mountainside.”
