The waiting area is the relaxation lounge at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Miami. Inside of it lies a cascading waterfall built into one of the walls, across from which several dark teal chaise lounges with bolster head pillows beckon guests to relax and catch up on the latest Vogue or Wall Street Journal.
