Auberge Unveils ONDA Spa in Punta de Mita

Venturing beyond traditional wellness paradigms, the retreat introduces a more entertaining approach to holistic well-being.

Susurros Del Corazón, a distinguished member of the exclusive Auberge Resorts portfolio, has premiered its novel spa concept: ONDA. Poised to become the largest spa along Mexico’s Bahía de Banderas, encompassing Punta de Mita and Puerto Vallarta, Auberge envisions ONDA as a departure from conventional wellness norms, opting for a more lighthearted and less formalized stance on well-being.

“At its essence, Susurros embodies a space with a laid-back and playful essence. We aimed to extend that ambiance to the spa, infusing a sense of fun into well-being,” expressed Vivianne Garcia-Tunon, global vice president of well-being, Auberge Resorts Collection. “In Mexico, an individual exuding positive energy and a great vibe is often described as having a remarkable ‘onda.’ Every aspect, from the contemporary ancestral vibrational bath to the distinctive ‘Las Ondas’ treatment, is designed to help our spa guests tap into that spirit.”

Nestled in a tranquil locale where the jungle meets the Pacific Coast, the retreat, crafted by renowned interior designer Paul Duesing, meticulously captures the essence of the raw Mexican landscape. ONDA proudly displays local flora and embraces the enviable climate through the use of organic materials, featuring distinctive elements like cactus walls and antique Mexican artifacts such as expansive Oaxacan ceramics.

Encompassing 34,900 square feet, ONDA hosts eleven treatment rooms, including a double suite with a private plunge pool and lounge. Additional amenities comprise a vitality pool, steam rooms, a sauna, and two health-focused dining outlets. 

The spa’s ethos of joyful well-being is mirrored in its diverse treatment menu, spanning nourishing full-body rituals utilizing native ingredients and techniques to cutting-edge scalp and hair programs. Going beyond mere aesthetics, these treatments adhere to the belief that addressing the crown can alleviate overall body tension.

Complementing this array of services is a revolving calendar of visiting practitioners, specializing in an array of meditative rituals and movement classes. From yoga and salsa sessions to sound baths and meditation, ONDA strives to provide a holistic and entertaining well-being experience for its patrons
