SoulBoks modular spa concept uses old shipping containers
12 Sep 2016 . BY Kate Corney
Soulboks customisable units are made from shipping containers
Soulhouse consultants Helen Coulon and Daniella Russell have introduced a modular unit based on reusing 40ft (12m) shipping containers to create modern spa (SoulBoks) or thermal (HotBoks) facilities.

The containers are fully customisable and can be installed as a turnkey project for hotels without a spa or as standalone boutiques. All owners need to provide is the space and water, drainage and power services.

Coulon said: “The boks are then delivered to site ready to operate with no building disruption, just dropped into the location.”

SoulBoks has four stations for beauty or spa treatments – with 30-minute pack pain, insomnia and alignment protocols by Kore Therapies available (but not obligatory) – or they can be used as a fitness/wellness studio for meditation, yoga, pilates and barre work.

The HotBoks have space for up to two experiences including a sauna/steam, spa pool, plung pool or floatation tank.

Coulon says: “We believe SoulBoks and HotBoks will go off with a bang in the industry as the spa scene generally is looking for new ‘out of the boks’ ideas to move along with consumer demands of today.

Soulhouse has already established strategic partnerships with investors from Dubai, London and Argentina to set up facilities in the next year.
