Situated in the heart of Hungary’s capital, Budapest, is the Ritz-Carlton hotel. The hotel underwent a major renovation to create world-class amenities like its onsite Hungarian-inspired restaurant called Deák St. Kitchen and residential-style accommodations. A 400m2 spa was also completely re-done and includes showers, changing rooms, steam rooms, and a swimming pool.
The renovation was led by local general contractor Sky Aqua Kft, who brought on Germany-based contractor Feuring Hotelconsulting GmbH to rebuild the spa after a complete teardown
“As a globally-known luxury hotel, it was necessary that the building materials used during reconstruction were of the highest quality. Luckily, LATICRETE products were specified and could guarantee lasting results,” said Marton Balazs, owner of the local distributor LATICRETE Hungary. “Everything old was removed and rebuilt from the concrete structures, including re-leveling and waterproofing. The entire area also needed to be re-tiled using various sizes and styles of tile such as glass mosaic for the pool, steam room, shower, and columns surrounding the pool.”
A range of LATICRETE materials were used for the project including HYDRO BAN®, 3701 Fortified Mortar Bed, 254 adhesive, and SPECTRALOCK® PRO Premium Grout*.
