This Earth Day, we look back on Nusta’s original vision and belief in protecting the planet. We were the first spa to do so in the country, and have proven over the years that luxury wellness services and products CAN be in harmony with nature. Happy Earth Day!!
A Green Escape
“As the first LEED Gold® spa in the country, Nusta Spa had a vision to create a rejuvenating space that would be as healthy for the environment as for its guests. To achieve this goal, they were looking for a construction partner that understood sophisticated design, with a commitment to achieving the highest standard of sustainability. With our team, Nusta Spa met their perfect match.”
Going for Gold with Natural Materials
“To deliver Nusta Spa’s vision, eco-friendly construction strategies were used throughout the space. From water preservation to fresh air intake with a state-of-the-art air filtration and ventilation system, to personal temperature controls and sustainable materials, every inch of the spa was built to support the health of Nusta’s clients and staff — and the health of our planet.
To capture the natural design aesthetic, we used FSC-certified and reclaimed wood; locally and regionally sourced materials; rapidly renewable, low-emitting and recycled materials; as well as energy-efficient lighting and HVAC systems. A self-sustaining waterfall provides a retreat from everyday sounds.
At a time when available options were few, we procured carpet made from 100% recycled fibers, and all textiles were specified and installed free of harmful toxins. An 11-foot wall of oak boards — milled from reclaimed structural timbers — define the separation between public and private spaces, which include a retail and reception space; a soothing relaxation area; seven treatment rooms; locker rooms; a manicure/pedicure salon; as well as laundry facilities, offices, storage space and a kitchen.”
A Lasting Leader
“Nusta Spa’s organic-by-design approach to business influenced everything we did. The finished space continues to be a sanctuary of pure bliss for guests, and the spa maintains its legacy as a pioneer in the world of sustainable hospitality.”
