Connecticut’s New Equation For Relaxation = MS2

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

Mandara Spa and Mohegan Sun (MS2) inaugurate new luxury spa while expanding amenities to the recently opened Earth Tower; rooted in the Balinese tradition of healing Touches, the Mandara Spa Brand connects its Indonesian heritage to local influences at Mohegan Sun for an unparalleled spa experience

UNCASVILLE, CT (February 14, 2017) – Steiner Spa Resorts (Connecticut), Inc. today announced the opening of a new Mandara Spa, the global spa brand’s 51st location, at Mohegan Sun’s Earth Tower. The spa will serve as an outpost to the main Sky Tower spa scheduled to be renovated and rebranded as a Mandara Spa in 2017.

Mandara Spa Earth Tower is a 2,800-square foot boutique healing house, designed exclusively for massage and facial therapies. The seven-room refuge features a couple’s suite, six dual-use rooms, waiting lounge, and retail area. Spa therapies include signature treatments such as the Mandara Customized Massage, Mandara Signature Facial, and the Fire & Ice Massage. The spa is an introduction to the brand and a prelude to the highly-anticipated Sky Tower spa renovation.

“The opening of Mandara Spa Earth Tower represents our commitment to Mohegan Sun and its guests,” said Leonard Fluxman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Steiner Spa Resorts (Connecticut), Inc. “Since 2002, Steiner has delivered exceptional services and products to Mohegan’s hotel and casino patrons. We plan for the Mandara Spa brand to continue to transcend the luxury spa experience, offering multi-cultural elements with worldwide touches and local influences.”

As in architecture, in which square roots are part of the equation in the build, Mandara Spa and Mohegan Sun formulated a strategic plan intended to elevate the spa experience while meeting the ever-growing demand for spa services. The result: a timeless spa brand with two on-property locations; a relaxation hub for Earth Tower guests to unwind.

“We’re thrilled to offer guests a beautiful new spa treatment area, and especially pleased it’s the result of a tremendous collaboration with Mandara Spa. Guests will find this Spa to be an incredibly relaxing and enjoyable experience, as it goes right along with the overall vibe in our newly opened Earth Tower hotel. With Mandara also embarking on the remodel of our larger spa and salon in Sky Tower, set for an opening by the end of 2017, Mohegan Sun will soon be home to a truly luxurious, modern and all-encompassing spa experience,” said Ray Pineault, President and General Manager, Mohegan Sun.

Mandara Spa Earth Tower was modeled after the brand’s portfolio. Situated on the ground level, the spa exudes a fresh, rich and earthy vibe that is naturally luxe yet calmly collected. The spa reception makes a first impression with its modern feel, clean lines, and a curated range of Mandara Spa®, ELEMIS® and bliss® products. The reception serves as the gateway to the waiting lounge, which showcases art and literature as guests take a pause prior to their service. Materials and accessories, including brass, bronze, gold, polished chrome, silver and stone, form an energy zone that emanates tranquility and sets the tone for the in-room spa experience in which guests can select from any of 40 spa treatments and service enhancers.

Kenneth Park Architects, headquartered in New York City, is the interior design and architecture firm on record for Mandara Spa Earth Tower and the 16,300 square-foot Sky Tower spa, scheduled to be completed in Fall 2017. A/Z Corporation, with headquarters locally in North Stonington, Conn., was the general contractor for the project and has a long history of having completed various projects at Mohegan Sun.
