The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, London offers some delicious refreshments. In the dark relaxation room, faux white candles light up a buffet of snacks. Pick up a rectangular sky-blue plate with branches of white flowers and choose some oatmeal-raisin cookies from a glass jar, or fruit from a tray of apples, grapes and tangerines. Pour a glass of the mint-infused water — refreshing after a massage — or the “herbal infusion of the day,” which was spearmint tea on our visit to the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa. If you want some straight hydration, opt for the bottled mineral water from the mini-fridge below the table.
You’ll find additional beverages in the locker rooms. A tray on the wood bench has a silver ice bucket, bottles of water and a pitcher of subtle berry-infused water.
