|Opening date:||14 May 2007|
The Safety Spa, formerly known as Oasis and also informally called the Golden Cafe and Oasis Cafe was a Public Room where many Habbos would gather to chat and host parties.
Throughout its time on Habbo, it was surrounded by controversy, being shut multiple times for various reasons. Like other Public rooms, the bar was occupied by an interactive Bot called Amber.
The room was originally intended to be exclusive to Habbo Club members, when it was originally being designed. It was originally available on the Habbo.fi hotel at an unknown time pre-2004, and added to the .co.uk hotel on 13 May 2005.
There was a competition in April 2005 to name the upcoming public room, the Bot’s name and personality. The options were:
- The Oasis
- Cafe Zen
- Voodoo Lounge
- Club Tropicana
- The Aquarium
- The Blue Lagoon
- Cloud 9
- Parakeet Cafe
- The Twilight Zone
- Retro Sky
- Rude, stuck up, posh
- Hippy, 60s throwback
- Goth, dark, slightly morbid
- Surfer dude, laid back
- Apathetic and forlorn
- Former wrestler, misses his glory days
- Retired pirate, misses the high seas
- Neurotic- like Woody Allen
- Elvis impersonator, liable to break out in tune
The room was reimagined in 2007 as a hub for users to get tips and information on staying safe while on Habbo.
As part of this transformation, it was renamed on 14 May 2007 from Oasis to Safety Spa after another public naming competition and vote. Other potential names included Safety Sanctuary and Safety Square.
The winner of the naming competition was Piper?, who Amber the Bot often mentioned in the room as part of the prize.
During the time of the Habbo eXperts program, the Safety X team spent much of their time in this room (as their ‘hub’) helping users, as well as the Welcome Lounge.
During the time of the Habbo eXperts program, many eXperts spent their time in the Safety Spa as well as the Welcome Lounge greeting new users to the hotel as well as providing safety tips.
