A sense of tranquility permeates the waiting area at The Mandarin Spa. While you can see that the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa’s sensibilities are steeped in its Asian heritage, the room feels contemporary and spacious, with blonde wood floors and walls, dark wood furniture and lacquer accents — it’s a modern update of 1930s Shanghai-era style. (There’s also an extensive retail area where you can find signature Mandarin Spa products). Upon arrival, you will be given spa slippers as you take off your street shoes and step — both symbolically and literally — away from the outside world. You’ll want to arrive at Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong at least 45 minutes in advance to use the spa’s facilities to unwind and unplug before your treatment.
