ModerNature would have prominent cold and hot lounges. Sustainability is key, from the complex water conservation systems to the recycled building materials. Technology is integrated throughout ModerNature, from web-based revenue management and booking, to iPads for spa-goers to use. A conceptual standout of ModerNature is the focus on employee engagement, with the second floor devoted entirely to employee wellbeing, and formal staff training ongoing.
