Whether you take a spa day once a week or once a year, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, New York doesn’t include any of the fussy difficulties normally associated with booking an appointment at an in-demand New York City locale. You won’t wait on hold for hours while listening to elevator music while booking an appointment at this urban retreat; instead just call or e-mail the spa to arrange a time that works best for you.
The floor-to-ceiling windows of this 35th floor urban getaway offer city views you can’t resist, and the ultra-luxe heat experiences, such as the amethyst-crystal steam room, and the Asian-inspired décor, including rich, dark teak-wood and gold leaf filling the rooms, set the mood for total chi balancing.
Rather than booking a specific treatment from the menu of Asian-influenced exclusive therapies (chakra balancing, acupressure and traditional cupping all make the cut), we suggest booking a 90-minute session, then letting the meticulously-trained staff decide on your specifics during the initial consultation. And to add to the hype of your upcoming appointment, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star New York spa will email or mail you a confirmation letter that includes a spa menu and brochure, so you can dream about which treatments you will receive before you go.
