One&Only Mandarina Partners With Skincare Expert Tata Harper To Bring Elevated Green Beauty Experiences To Riviera Nayarit
One&Only Mandarina, the newest addition to One&Only’s collection of ultra-luxury beach resorts, is enlisting global skincare brand Tata Harper as the resort’s Spa partner, consciously crafting a wellness programme with advanced therapies and personalised treatments to create a transformational spa experience. Utilising Tata Harper’s high-performance, all-natural ingredients, paired with the beauty brand’s advanced green technologies, One&Only Spa will allow guests to embrace the power of nature with exclusive spa services that go beyond traditional treatments and programmes, and are found only at One&Only Mandarina.
“We are thrilled to partner with Tata Harper Skincare – a global pioneer in natural luxury skincare, whose philosophy is very much in line with One&Only Mandarina, prioritising ethical consciousness and looking to nature for inspiration,” said Serge Ditesheim, General Manager, One&Only Mandarina. “The resort’s One&Only Spa is a true sanctuary in nature that will offer bespoke and immersive treatments complemented by Tata Harper’s impeccable standards of efficacy, quality and purity.”
One&Only Spa will be the first and only spa to introduce Tata Harper’s Sensorial Resets, a collection of curated treatments to elevate the traditional beauty experience and captivate all five senses. The multi-sensorial journeys simultaneously elevate the skin condition, the bodily vibrations, and the state of the mind. As sensory immersions meet cutting-edge beauty technology and the award-winning multi-active formulas to soothe and restore, the result is a complete recalibration of skin, body and mind in one transformative treatment.
The curated spa menu will offer Tata Harper’s Mystique Herbal Codex, a specialised treatment restoring balance by advancing stagnant energy and reinstating natural energy flow. Inspired by the Badianus Manuscript – the earliest treatise on Mexican medicinal plants and ancestral remedies – the experience begins with gentle placement of singing bowls on the body, with soft vibrations and sounds resonating as the spa therapist begins to play, opening chakras and balancing energy. A full body exfoliation prepares the skin for a traditional body massage designed to energize and revitalize the body’s natural rhythm. The experience ends with an advanced skincare facial combining Tata Harper’s signature face massage techniques into one treatment.
A Nature’s Sanctuary Treatment, also created exclusively for the One&Only Spa, is designed to calm and relax the mind and body while indulging and inspiring the senses. Beginning with a tuning fork ritual and face mapping therapy, this treatment encourages positive and calming emotions to soothe a busy mind and treat each part of the body. A kinetique face and décolleté massage and warming experience follows, combining a head, hand and foot massage to transport guests on a sensory journey.
Additional treatments include a Kayuma Cleansing Ceremony, starting with Copal burned to clear the energy field, followed by a smoothing full body scrub with apricot microspheres and a freestyle massage utilising Tata Harper’s herbal infusion oil to heal, balance, and protect the physical and energetic body. A Native Clay Remedy reenergizes the tired body with a unique clay body mask that harnesses the power of fruit enzymes, purple clay, and spices like fennel, ginger, clove, and turmeric to purge impurities and detoxify the skin. Specialised facial treatments like the Plant Based Hydration Facial combines deeply moisturising formulas with Tata Harper’s Raw Organic Honey Mask, quenching thirsty and sensitive skin to replenish hydration for a soft and supple look, while a Healthy Glow Facial delivers a flawless looking complexion using an innovative blend of multi-hydroxy acids that treat hyperpigmentation and reveal luminous looking skin and smooth, even texture.
"Our partnership with One&Only Mandarina aligns seamlessly with our continued effort to promote a natural beauty lifestyle that is health-conscious and committed to safety, health, and sustainability,” said Tata Harper, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Tata Harper Skincare. “The resort’s ancient healing approach coupled with our products that are filled with the most potent organically grown ingredients, will create a transformative spa experience unique to the destination and resort."
Tata Harper’s 100% natural and non-toxic skincare products are handcrafted in the label’s own 1,200-acre Certified Organic farm in Vermont. Using more than 300 fresh ingredients sourced from over 68 countries – with upwards of 40+ high performance ingredients in any given product – the celebrated skincare brand is designed to improve skin vitality and radiance without a single drop of artificial chemicals. From cleansers to moisturisers, the brand’s Green line provides multi-targeted treatments for every step of a beauty regimen, leaving skin healthy and glowing, while the more advanced Super Naturals line boasts hyper-targeted anti-aging solutions, engineered with ultramodern green technology for uncompromising results. A selection of Tata Harper products will be available for purchase at the Spa Retail.
One&Only Spa, situated in a natural volcanic rock garden, features a collection of six secluded treatment rooms, all cocooned beneath the jungle canopy observed through skylights, bringing to life the wild nature surrounding One&Only Mandarina. A large, iconic Higuera tree frames the spa relaxation garden, with treatment rooms and a mud therapy facility positioned conscientiously around its roots. The spa journey is framed by expressions of sacred geometry created by Huicholes, one of the few indigenous communities that have managed to remain untouched by Spanish influence and are prominent to the region of Riviera Nayarit. With a layout based on an eight-point star, guests will be immersed in the Huichol cosmo vision representing rebirth, renewal and spiritual regeneration. The design overlaps two squares, creating duality which combines four elements – fire, pointing to the Temazcal; water, pointing to wet areas; air, pointing to the treatment rooms; and earth, pointing to the spa entrance. The corners of the second square represent human existence, with spirit, pointing to the ocean; mind, pointing to the equilibrium pavilion; soul, pointing to the vitality area; and body, pointing to the treatment rooms. In balance, the two squares overlapping in design represent connection, which is the heart of the spa.
The spa menu offers uniquely local treatments and enriching experiences inspired by indigenous and pre-Hispanic culture, including a traditional Temazcal combining medicinal herbs, heat, steam, indigenous music and copal incense to stimulate detoxification, heal the body and purify the mind. Spa guests can also indulge in ultimate relaxation by soaking in the mud grotto, bathing in the vitality pool, or enjoying an energizing hydrotherapy circuit with cold plunge pools, steam room and sauna that boast views of the jungle, before indulging in the spa’s holistic wellness offerings.
One&Only Mandarina will begin welcoming guests on 1 November 2020. For more information or reservations, please visit: oneandonlyresorts.com.
