Leading global luxury and sustainable lifestyle brand, VOYA Organic Beauty, is delighted to add Toast Hotel Group’s stunning new Foundation Mind & Body Spa to its select list of partner spas.

VOYA Organic Beauty and Toast Hotel Group are delighted to share the details of a new, 1490 sq ft waterfront spa, located on the garden level of The Harbor Grand Hotel in New Buffalo, MI. Designed in collaboration with Chicago-based design collective, Curioso, Foundation Mind and Body Spa’s stylish spaces take inspiration from the nature surrounding it.

In keeping with the boutique hotel’s sophisticated take on lake style, the spa’s 4 treatment rooms, harbor view relaxation lounge, and thoughtfully accessorized changing rooms are impressive in their attention to detail. Floors, walls, and furnishings echo the area’s coastal ecology with soothing colors and textures.

Developed in collaboration with VOYA, Foundation’s carefully curated spa menu includes evocatively named treatments like “Breeze,” and “Cove,” that perfectly blend purpose and place.

“The nature-inspired retreat and menu offering at Foundation Spa both supports VOYA’s sustainability efforts, and relationship with water and the earth,” says VOYA Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Serina Sandhu. “VOYA’s ethically harvested, and scientifically proven marine botanicals harness the healing properties of nature to enhance and sustain wellbeing, which makes our partnership with Foundation Spa at Harbor Grand so impressive.”

Used in Foundation’s body wraps, VOYA’s antioxidant rich Laminaria Digitata hydrates, purifies and detoxifies. VOYA oils add a sensory treat to Foundation massages and, in combination with VOYA’s organic antioxidant algae complex, enhance the restorative action of Foundation facials.

From therapeutic treatments to quiet reflection in The Harbor Grand Hotel’s saltwater pool and jacuzzi, every part of the Foundation wellness journey is designed to be restorative.

“Our partnership with VOYA has been an important part of our success this year” adds Foundation Spa Director, Jonathon Richards. “We worked closely to engrain VOYA products into our service offerings as a way to deliver a truly unique waterfront experience for our guests. We are proud to be one of only a few spas in the US that offer VOYA products, and we look forward to the continued partnership as we look to grow our business in the coming year.”

“Foundation Spa has been an important addition to the Toast Hotel Group family. It brings another dimension of luxury service to our hospitality experience and aligns perfectly with our mission to exceed our guests’ expectations. That’s also why we chose to partner with VOYA Skincare. Not only are they a global luxury lifestyle brand, but their focus on organic sustainability is also an important quality given our location and connection to Lake Michigan.” Robert Kemper, Founder & Managing Director of Toast Hotel Group.

About VOYA

VOYA’s story is one of Innovation, Integrity, and Respect for the Sea. For over 17 years, VOYA has led the way for results-driven, certified organic skincare worldwide. Created on the West Coast of Ireland by the Walton family, the skincare and body care line evolved from the widely acclaimed family-run seaweed baths in Strandhill, Co. Sligo which first opened in 1912. As the reputation of the baths spread, the idea was born to help visitors to create a similar experience at home. The family combined their knowledge of the therapeutic properties of their hand-picked, wild seaweed with the expertise of highly skilled natural cosmetic scientists, marine biologists, and dermatologists from around the world to create VOYA. VOYA products harness the unique restorative, healing, and anti-ageing properties of seaweed, blended with the purest active organic ingredients and essential oils into exceptional skincare and body care products rich in antioxidants. VOYA products can be found around the globe, in hotels and retail outlets as well as luxurious spas. voyaskincare.com @voyabeauty
