Diana Mestre creating nature-inspired Seed Spa for upcoming 1 Hotel Los Cabos
POSTED 22 Sep 2017 . BY Jane Kitchen
We are staying away from operational-driven experiences to create a genuine soul connection.
– Diana Mestre, spa consultant
Spa consultant Diana Mestre of Mestre & Mestre Spa and Wellness Consulting is creating a 12,000sq ft (1,115sq m) sunken spa for the upcoming 1 Hotel Los Cabos in Mexico, which is set to open in 2019.

Designed with the purpose of revitalising the senses, the Seed Spa will use recycled and organic materials along with water, music, aromas, light and living plants with an aim to create an environment where guests can find balance and connect with the natural rhythms of life, said Mestre.

“Seed Spa is inspired by the concept of a living sacred place on earth that gives the spiritual value and the holistic value of a person, a plant, an animal or a place,” Mestre told Spa Opportunities. “It’s a destination approaching sensory wellness, with a new vision of balance between the human self and the earth.”

Seed Spa will have six individual treatment rooms, two couple’s suites and one quartz bed therapy room. The spa experience will explore the effect of the four elements: water, air, fire and earth, and features “wise concoction massage therapy treatments”, designed to improve muscle and joint health and natural immunity, as well as to provide stress relief.

“In the design of the experience, we are staying away from operational-driven experiences to create a genuine soul connection,” said Mestre.

The 115-bedroom 1 Hotel – designed by Hart Howerton with interiors by Cherem Arquitectos and landscapes by George Girvin of Girvin Associates – is being created as an environmentally-responsible hotel.

The same team worked on the spa design and Mestre said it reflects the spa’s goal of awakening the spiritual, cosmic and magical forces.

“Seed Spa’s amazing architectural and interior design blends with the natural elements, ensuring a unique sense of arrival, a journey of the senses and an experience unlike any other, where the sacred earth becomes the centre stage,” said Mestre. “Seed Spa will also be a unique reflection of its location and the people, culture and traditions it represents.”

Facilities will include an alchemy reception welcome lounge; water journey facilities with an experience pool, hot and polar pools, steam sauna and experience showers; a garden relaxation lounge; tea lounge; outdoor sensory garden; and an apothecary retail and farewell lounge. A state-of-the-art fitness centre with gym and exercise studio will be located on the first level.

Developed in partnership with the Questro Grupo, the hotel will also include yoga on the beach, paddle boarding, and complimentary daily fitness and wellness programming.

Launched in 2015, 1 Hotels is a Starwood luxury lifestyle brand inspired by nature; it has two locations in New York and one in Miami Beach, where the first US spa for British skincare brand Bamford opened last year.

The brand also has two properties in development in California, at West Hollywood and Silicon Valley, and another in Sanya, China.
