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.

Mohegan Sun Announces a $50 Million Hotel Renovation and Adds More Retail, Dining and Gaming Options

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

Renovated Room in Mohegan Sun’s Sky Tower Hotel in Uncasville, CT

Uncasville, Connecticut (June 16, 2016) – As construction progresses on Mohegan Sun’s 400-room, $130 million Earth Tower opening in fall 2016, Mohegan Sun announces a two year $50 million renovation project for the Sky Tower – the existing 1,200-room hotel that was introduced in 2002. Part of this initiative includes a multi-million dollar revamp and rebranding of the property’s existing spa, combined with a completely new Mandara Spa build out as part of the new Earth Tower. Continuously striving to offer guests the best amenities available, Mohegan Sun has announced the introduction of Victoria’s Secret to The Shops at Mohegan Sun, two new dining offerings and exclusive hybrid fusion games.

The Sky Renovation project, estimated at $50 million overall once completed, will encompass standard and junior suite room renovations including new carpeting, wall covers, casework furniture and fabrics. The rooms will also feature a brand new e-tray arrangement in lieu of a mini-bar, refrigerators, as well as an iPad, providing a multitude of services for guests including a compendium, thermostat adjustments, room service ordering and TV control. For guests’ convenience, a motion detecting light will be installed under the end tables, and will turn on automatically once guests step out of bed. The hotel corridors and lobby furniture will also be updated as part of the project.

“At Mohegan Sun, we are committed to continuously providing fresh and appealing offerings,” says Ray Pineault, President & General Manager of Mohegan Sun. “These enhancements are a few examples of our dedication to evolve and steadily exceed the expectations of our valued guests.”

Mohegan Sun is working with Steiner Leisure Limited to bring Mandara Spa to two separate locations on-property. This global spa brand was established in Bali, Indonesia and is a pioneer of tropical, multi-cultural spa experience rooted in the Balinese tradition of healing touches. The Sky Tower’s existing 22,000 square foot Elemis Spa will undergo a complete renovation and rebranding to become a Mandara Spa, which is projected to be complete in 2017. Set to open this fall, the new Mandara Spa location is in development within the Earth Tower and will feature seven total treatment rooms. Featuring world-renowned, premium spa offerings, the addition of having two Mandara Spas on property will significantly elevate the brand’s guest experience in a way that truly defines modern indulgence.

“We are privileged to embark on this journey with Mohegan Sun Hotel, presenting a new spa brand and expanded spa facilities that will afford hotel and casino guests with another luxury experience on property,” said Leonard Fluxman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Steiner Leisure Limited. “The Mandara Spa brand has a global footprint, and its debut at Mohegan Sun will not only introduce innovative treatment and product offerings, but will also fuse time-honored Balinese traditions with regional influences for an unparalleled spa experience.”

Adding to the retail offerings, Mohegan Sun has partnered with Victoria’s Secret to open a new location in The Shops at Mohegan Sun, coming this fall, and earlier this month, welcomed The Art of Shaving, a premium barber spa and shop.  Later this summer, Tom’s Urban, will open with an innovative travel inspired menu and over 40 beers on tap. More restaurant offerings will include a sit down waiter serviced Asian restaurant, Jumbo Oriental, is set to open featuring Chinese, Vietnamese, and Southern Asian offerings, infused with authentic flavors that melt deep into each dish.

In addition to the Sky Tower renovations, Hybrid Fusion games have launched inside Sunrise Square, with more to be installed in Casino of the Sky by the end of June 2016. A Hybrid Fusion game involves live blackjack, roulette and baccarat dealers’ hands to be broadcasted onto a monitor sitting in front of the player as well as a 50” screen above the stadium. This technology will allow players to play designated games of blackjack, roulette, or baccarat at the same time.

“Mohegan Sun Connecticut will be the first in the United States to offer the blackjack Hybrid Fusion game, which truly sets us apart in the industry,” says Ray Pineault, President & General Manager of Mohegan Sun. “Guests will now be able to participate in four of their favorite games at once, which enhances their experience at our world-class casinos.” Casino of the Sky will have a total of 41 seats for guests, while Sunrise Square will have 20 seats.
