If you’d like to bring your child along to The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, New York, you can do so if your child is older than 18 years old. The hushed tones and adult atmosphere of this urban getaway aren’t meant for under-aged kids and the Asian-inspired therapies — including traditional cupping, lymph draining and Thai yoga massage — were developed with more mature bodies in mind. However, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa’s 72-foot lap pool is open to all ages, so pack the swimsuits — and floaties if need be — for a pool day with the little ones as long as you’re staying overnight because the pool is for hotel guests only. And if your junior edition is on her way to adulthood, book a mother-daughter day at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, New York to celebrate her 18th birthday.
