The 20,000-square-foot haven won the 2007 International Interior Design Association's annual design competition and a 2007 Best Spa Award from Boutique Design magazine. "The experience begins in the foyer," said Interior Design magazine, "where guests walking across the cast-glass floor hear water running beneath their feet . . ." and "waiting and changing areas are infused with serene luxury." Monaco was inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame in 2007.
