When you enter The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, London, a staff member will scoop up your shoes in a basket and give you a pair of slippers in your size. The black opaque plastic sandals have the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa’s name and logo (the outline of a figure holding Mandarin’s signature fan) printed in white. The sandals are better than the usual terry-cloth options — you can use the London spa’s fantastic wet areas without having soggy slippers. You’ll find the robe downstairs in the locker room. The thick, white-striped cotton bathrobe comes from Lissadell Liddell in Ireland.
