If you don’t need to rush home after your Thai yoga massage at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, New York, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star retreat offers plenty to do nearby. Without leaving the building, you can enjoy shopping at high-end boutiques, dine at some of the Big Apple’s best restaurants or shop around for gourmet food items inside the Time Warner Center.
Central Park is just footsteps from the building, and a stroll through this spacious park is a great escape from the busy city streets. If the city’s rich theater history strikes your fancy, Broadway is home to 30-plus stages, Times Square offers a mélange of entertainment and the Lincoln Center — also inside the Time Warner Center — offers nightly jazz shows. New York City is home to a slew of not-to-be-missed museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim and the Museum of Modern Art, all perfect for art lovers.
And for more scenic offerings, a chopper ride over the Statue of Liberty, Yankee Stadium or the George Washington Bridge combines luxe living with a little adventure — not that you’ll necessarily need it after a full day of relaxing at the luxury New York spa.
