The Ring Spa is located between Gosaikunda Lake and Bhairav Kunda Lake and aims to harmonize body and spirit with nature. Its design draws inspiration from traditional round houses in Hilekharka, featuring overhanging roofs and curved interiors. Unlike conventional construction, the spa is elevated on two concrete columns, reducing its impact on the landscape and minimizing greenhouse gas emissions. To enhance sustainability, the spa rotates slowly, optimizing sunlight for solar panels and indoor plants. This innovative approach not only mitigates environmental impact but also offers ever-changing views from the spa.

The spa interior incorporates curved corners to minimize visual impact, while using local materials like stones, wood, and bamboo for a mindful experience. A vertical garden design maximizes space. The garden is movable to follow the sun and facilitate planting. Crafted spa experience can be enhanced by moving different herbal plants into the space. Human waste is treated and used as fertilizer. Furthermore, condensation from the vapor of thermal bath and rainwater irrigate the garden. The void design aims for visual and mental relaxation, balancing emptiness and satisfaction. A chimney-shaped void inhales air from the mountain valley, and a vertical turbine harnesses the energy, giving the building a lively feel.
