The Vision: To bring the healing wisdom from the east to the west so people all over the world may appreciate the richness inherent in the traditions of other cultures.
Mandara has its roots in the Buddhist and Hindu traditions of Bali, where ancient healing practices have been passed down from generation to generation. Today, there are over 55 Mandara spas located in Asia, Micronesia, the Middle East, North America and most recently in Europe. Mandara’s philosophy is to offer spa therapies that embrace the eclectic cultures of the world: our spas are one third Balinese to honor our roots, one third local to reflect the region and one third European to broaden our horizons.
Our most recent openings include:
Glow®, a Mandara Spa, opened its first location at the Tropicana Las Vegas in early November, ushering a new breed of spa. Fusing beauty and fashion with sun, beach and play, the new $5 million Glow is a cosmopolitan spa brand marrying a modern and beach-chic lifestyle with beauty and wellness experiences for discerning jetsetters and travel connoisseurs. Glow is a see-and-be-seen spa in a class of its own — a private club-like setting intimate in size, but large in social scale. As the Tropicana’s centerpiece for escapism, this relaxation hub also dubs as a sanctuary for beautification, a perfect segue from the play-by-day atmosphere Tropicana has created to the play-at-night Las Vegas lifestyle. Marking the expansion of Mandara Spa®, a Steiner resorts division brand, the new edgier Glow is a modern-day oasis, featuring Glow signature services in its treatment selections.
The Glow concept is perfectly aligned with Tropicana’s design — a beach-inspired retreat — while keeping true to Mandara Spa’s cornerstone for memorable guest experiences, its commitment to health and wellness, and groundbreaking treatments and products. At the nearly 10,000 square foot Glow, each spa experience begins in the inviting spa reception where guests are welcomed and checked in prior to be being whisked away on a journey of self discovery. The lobby provides a first impression of the spa and brand: a modern, beach-chic feel with natural tones and wood elements, a place where sun and earth join to cast a light on inner and outer health and beauty. Much like a resort itself, Glow mirrors the feel of a luxury boutique hotel on the beach. Featuring nine, serene treatment rooms and a full-service salon, the spa is designed in various wood and sand tones, textured fabrics, and stone elements. A conversation piece: the striking floor-to-ceiling glass wall with inset flowers on the entryway, providing a pop of tropical color.
Key facility features include the Relaxation Lounge, a dim-lit quiet room with plush sofas, billowy fabrics, and refreshments, including fruit-infused waters and the herbal tea of the day. Here, the therapist greets the guest and escorts them to a facial or body treatment room. Understanding that guests’ needs change day by day, each treatment is customized. Guests can choose from three Glow options: Tranquility (calming), Harmony (energizing), Glow (balancing) which determines both the glow of the room (LED lighting means you can be bathed in any of the colors from the vast spectrum) and also the aroma. You can also choose your room temperature. For the cold blooded ask your therapist to turn the heat up to 80 degrees and for the warm blooded you can request it as low as 60 degrees. And that’s not all. Each Glow has its own set of grooves to either soothe or energize.
Truly an oasis for couples, both will be able to share the glow in multiple rooms set aside for those that spa two by two. The Glow Villa includes a luxurious bathing experience in which you may choose your bathing condiments from bespoke Mandara infusions; the Couples Wet Villa and Couples Wet Suite both feature a couples tub and couples shower to luxuriate before or after a Glow signature service.
Glow’s menu includes more than 50 treatments that will bring out a guest’s inner glow. From the signature Glo2 Facial, a breath of fresh air for the skin, to the Glow Light, encouraging shrinkage, and the Double-The-Glow Massage to glow together, each treatment has been created to provide the most indulgent and unique experience where one can discover what truly makes them shine. In addition to the branded Glow services, the best of Mandara and Elemis treatments are featured in Glow’s menu, creating an unparalleled spa experience. Every skin and body care product experienced will be available for purchase at Glow to continue the quest for well being, beauty and radiance at home.
