The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona

Barcelona's sleek, modern respite
Tucked away in the basement of the luxurious Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona, you will stumble on a sleek, modern spa. Despite its location in a high-end, trendy neighborhood in the city center, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona provides a quiet and soothing respite from the bustling Passeig de Gràcia outside.

Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola helped create the ambience by using colors such as black and white, and mixing materials such as wood and malachite. The common areas are dark and atmospheric: the spa-only lap pool backlit with a deep green, the steam room with tiled loungers and the relaxation room’s tan spa beds invite you to sink deeper into relaxation.

The spa offers eight treatment rooms, including two couples’ suites, two Thai suites, a lap pool, a hammam, a cutting-edge HairSpa by Miriam Quevedo and a range of treatments and services from top-name experts to cosset your mind and body from head to toe.
