Inspired by holistic Mauritian traditions
Redefining ultra-luxury in the Indian Ocean and beyond, One&Only Le Saint Géran has emerged entirely transformed following a multi-million-dollar investment, introducing the legendary resort into a modern-day icon. Long celebrated as the luxury retreat in Mauritius, One&Only Le Saint Géran retains what guests have always loved - a sense of exclusive seclusion on its own private peninsula with a beachfront and calm lagoon unlike any other resort on the island. The entire resort has been completely reborn, with a fresh beach-inspired aesthetic, new playful swimming pools with cabanas, reimagined public spaces, a stunning new spa, Club One, and dynamic new dining experiences.
The One&Only Spa covers over 1,000 square metres and offers an incredible panorama overlooking the lap pool and lagoon, surrounded by serene water and lush vegetation as well as secluded outdoor gardens for blissful open-air therapy. Prior to, or post treatment, guests are invited to use the new heat facilities including a steam room and sauna, or relax on day beds around the infinity pool. The One&Only Spa entrance, hidden amongst a jungle of palm and coconut trees, immerses guests in a world of tranquillity and peace from the moment they arrive. The thirteen newly designed treatment rooms surround the pool, with some opening onto their own private garden with outdoor showers, truly allowing guests to relax, switch off and feel revived in their very own sanctuary.
The One&Only Spa continues its partnership with the award-winning ESPA brand, offering tailored holistic experiences, ranging from pure relaxation to unique and signature wellness journeys. Signature treatments utilising indigenous and authentic techniques, such as ‘Mauritian Fusion’, a poultice treatment to sooth muscular aches and pains using a Mauritian herbal blend of neem, tulsi, moringa and lemongrass, or ‘Chakra Balancing’ which aims to release deep seated tension and blocked energy using local mint, citronella essence and volcanic hot stones. The 120-minute ‘Essence of One&Only Le Saint Géran’ begins with a tropical body scrub using naturally sourced indigenous ingredients such as coconut (known on the island as the ‘tree of life’), honey and sugar, reminiscent of sugarcane that can be seen throughout the island. A full-body massage with warm nourishing oils completes this journey as guests feel the stress and tension melt away.
The One&Only Spa is home to a Bridal Suite, a secret hideaway for brides getting married at the resort. The suite is entirely designed to pamper brides from head to toe and relieve them from all tensions ahead of one of the most special moments of their lives. From a private entrance, a mini hair and make-up studio, a changing room with a large mirror for fitting the dress, to a manicure/pedicure station and a private garden with outdoor shower, this suite is the perfect place to relax during the preparation for the most memorable day.
To complement ESPA, the resort has partnered with well-known brands to complete the wellness offering; Biologique Recherche, with the best combination of advanced products for facial treatments, and once again the revered podiatrist, Bastien Gonzalez. A first for Mauritius, Biologique Recherche’s bespoke facial treatments use fragrance-free products that are all formulated with high concentrations of active ingredients derived from natural or biotechnological compounds. The Biologique Recherche ‘Only for You’ treatment allows the One&Only Spa experts to diagnose each individual’s Skin Instant® and then recommend products and techniques best suited to each individual. According to Biologique Recherche experts, a person has several skins whose condition changes numerous times in a single day, as well as during the course of a lifetime. Also offering anti-aging treatments and the Solar Range, a three-stage treatment programme that helps guests maximise the benefits of moderate sun exposure and avoid possible damage, One&Only Spa has the essential combination of treatments on offer.
Guests can continue their wellness journey by visiting the Pedi:Mani:Cure Studio by Bastien Gonzalez. The French podiatrist is internationally recognised for his unique approach to foot treatments and his professional expertise. The multi-award-winning Bastien Duo is a four-hands treatment that takes care of the feet, legs, hands and arms resulting in healthy, strong and naturally shiny nails.
One&Only Spa offers wellness experiences for every guest, offering a tailor-made spa menu for men, ‘Only Him’; new mums and mums-to-be have specially created treatments available with ‘Only Nurture’; couples have their own sanctuary in the Garden Pavilion, a secret tropical escape with ‘One Seclusion’ treatments specially designed for two; and of course younger guests are never forgotten at One&Only with the ‘Only for the New Generation’ spa menu tailored for younger skins of 12 to 16 years old. After a day at the beach, the One&Only Hair Salon now offers guests the perfect revitalising rituals by Kérastase. Following an initial consultation, the salon’s experts determine which products are best suited to the hair type and condition, and select the perfect treatment to ensure a complete customised experience. Of course, resident stylists are available to assist with a cut, quick blow-dry before dinner or with a complete new look.
One&Only Spa is complemented by the high energy Club One, the hub for all things active including a state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor Fitness Centre with two studios for group classes such as spinning, zumba, kick boxing, HIIT, TRX, an outdoor training area by MyEquilibria, and complimentary yoga and Pilates classes at the stunning new yoga pavilion. A true wellness destination, the One&Only Spa is a haven for guests to truly reconnect body, mind and soul.
