Classic relaxation with a modern touch, at the Mandarin Oriental
One of London’s newer luxury hotels, the spa at the Mandarin Oriental has a suitably modern and minimalist aesthetic. Some of the very newest fitness and wellness facilities are spread across the spa, including a Kenesis Vision Unit, an In-Body Analyzer, and a zen colour therapy room.
Minimalism is central to the spa treatments as well. There are no gimmicks here, just a classic range of well-loved massages and facials, done well. Don’t miss the Oriental Harmony massage, where two masseuses (yes, two) work your entire body, exfoliating, massaging and moisturising with an expert touch and only the best essential oils.
For men, there is a deceptively simple bespoke facial, which will leave you feeling clean and relaxed. Or why not book into one of the spa programmes, which offer (slightly) better value for money and feature a variety of facials, massages, wraps and spa therapies.
If you aren’t sure what you want from your day at the Mandarin Oriental Spa, book in a ‘Time Ritual’, where you simply hire your therapist for a set amount of time and discuss your needs on the day.
The Mandarin Oriental has one of London’s most exclusive addresses, so make the most of your stay here by taking in your opulent surroundings – and don’t forget to visit the nearest corner shop. It’s called Harrods.
