One & Only Spa At One & Only Mandarin, Riviera Nayarit, Mexico

PARIS, France – Among the impressive nod to low – impact at One & Only’s Pacific Coast location is the layout of its 27,000 – square – foot spa, which was designed around a large higuera blanca (while fig tree). Like the rest of the property’s 105 freestanding villas that have been built into the bluffs or sit above the tree canopy on stilts, the spa, which is situated in a volcanic rock garden, follows the natural landscape utilizing local clay, cumaru wood, and stone extracted from the site itself. Much of its meny has been designed in homage to the healing traditions of the area’s indigenous Cora and Huichol cultures, including its main attraction: a traditional temazcal. The Mayan sweat lodge combines medicinal herbs, heat, steam, and copal incense to stimulate detoxification, heal the body, and purify the mind. But the spa also enjoys the distinction of being the first destination in the world to feature sustainable skin – care pioneer Tata Harper’s Multi – Sensory Wellness Journeys. The standout Mystical Herbal Codex treatment begins with energy – balancing singing bowls to open the chakras, and is followed by a full – body exfoliation, massage, and facial using Harper’s 100 percent natural and nontoxic serums and salves that are handcrafted on her 1,2000 – acre certifies – organic farm in Vermont.
