The best gift is one you’d love yourself. A few hours getaway at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, New York, a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa, is even better. The treatments at this New York City urban retreat are custom-tailored to each spa-goer, guaranteeing your gift is a relaxing incredible experience, no matter what treatments your lucky recipient needs or wants (call the spa at 212-805-8880, or pick a gift certificate up during your next visit). Using a combination of traditional Chinese medicine, master aromatherapy and Oriental meridian massage — the therapists customize each session (booked by the hour, not by type of treatment), to kick-start your body back into balance. But the present starts long before the treatments begin: Perched high above the city streets on the 35th floor of the Time Warner Center, your lucky gift recipient will enjoy the stunning floor-to-ceiling window views of Central Park and the Hudson River while kicking away in the 75-foot lap pool.
Gift cards are available in denominations of $50 to $10,000. All cards are exquisitely presented and can be delivered directly on your behalf with a personal message. Mandarin Oriental gift cards can be purchased in the Spa boutique or by phone by dialing 212-805-8800.
