Vivianne Garcia-Tunon, former SVP of operations and development at The Well, has joined Auberge Resorts Collection in a brand new role.
Garcia-Tunon has previously worked for ESPA, Mandarin Oriental and GHM.
Auberge has an in-house spa concept but, in recent years, has partnered with The Well to co-create wellness retreats for its properties.
Auberge has four additional hotel and spa destinations in the works. All are due to open by 2026.
Luxury hotel and spa operator Auberge Resorts Collection has named Vivianne Garcia-Tunon as its first-ever global vice president of wellbeing.

Garcia-Tunon has worked in health-focused roles within the hospitality industry for over 25 years – for brands including Espa, Mandarin Oriental and GHM – and is also an interior designer, nutritionist and licensed massage therapist.

In 2014, she founded an independent spa, wellness and fitness consultancy called Wonderflower, Spa & Wellness.

Most recently, Garcia-Tunon was working for modern US wellness brand The Well as SVP of operations and development. During her six-year tenure, she worked closely with Auberge after the group began collaborating with The Well to co-create wellness spaces at a select number of its properties.

The tie-up resulted in four Auberge destinations featuring The Well-branded and operated facilities. These are located in Connecticut, Mexico (Los Cabos and Kanai) and Costa Rica.

Click here to check out Spa Business' exclusive interview with Garcia-Tunon where she shares more details about The Well's first Costa Rican outpost.

Craig Reid, president and CEO of Auberge, commented: “We've been lucky to collaborate with Vivianne on some of our most groundbreaking and successful spa openings and wellness initiatives at several of our properties around the world. She is a wellness visionary who practices and champions wellbeing in every facet of her life, and we're thrilled to officially welcome her to the Auberge family.

“We know that wellbeing means something different for everyone, and with Vivianne on board, we aim to deepen our commitment to ensuring each guest finds unique ways to optimize their health and wellness while staying with us.”

Auberge encompasses a collection of 26 hotels, resorts, residences and private clubs. Looking ahead, the brand is set to open a further four hotels with spas.

These properties include:
– Collegio alla Querce, Florence, Italy (2024).
– The Dunlin, Kiawah River, South Carolina (2024).
– The Hearst Hotel, San Francisco, California (2025).
– Shell Bay Club and Resort, Florida (2025).

Auberge will also open The Knox hotel and residences in Dallas, Texas in 2026. However, the brand has not yet mentioned plans for a spa facility.
