Project Description

Bespoke Deep Soaking Tubs, Southport, England

Product: Custom Deep Soaking Tubs – Calyx 1230, Calyx 1440 and Xanadu
Client: Vincent Hotel, Southport

This Calyx deep soaking tub was custom designed for the Vincent Hotel

The Project:

During the creation of a high quality boutique hotel – The Vincent on Southport’s Lord Street – the developer’s interior design agency DesignLSM found itself dissatisfied with the baths originally specified and so it recommended that the owner approach Cabuchon Bathforms. The project required more than fifty deep soaking tubs, fifteen of which had to be supplied in a larger size, whilst a still larger, double-ended bath was needed for the penthouse terrace. The brief stated that the finished baths should have a clean, minimalist design and that they must all be approved, built and delivered within a period of just 12 weeks.

Having invited the owner to its factory in order to consider the options, Cabuchon responded with its newly developed Calyx 1230, which is derived conceptually from the traditional Japanese Ofuro deep soaking tub. For the larger size, it supplied the Calyx 1440 and, for the rooftop bath, it supplied the Xanadu, a two-seat deep soaking tub, complete with an in-built hydrotherapy system. All the baths were supplied on schedule to the client’s complete satisfaction.

“Customer delight is the absolute priority at The Vincent so it’s important that every aspect of the guest experience is positive and memorable. In the bathrooms, the tubs provided by Cabuchon play an important role in realising this; their look and feel fits in very well with the hotel’s boutique design and they always make a striking first impression. They’re elegant but quirky and they take us well away from the ordinary, which is the goal we’ve always pursued. We get some really good feedback from guests about the baths and they seem to appeal particularly to younger, design-conscious customers.”
