The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo

A sky-high Tokyo spa
VERIFIED LUXURY
You’ll feel on top of the world at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo. And it’s not because of the four-handed Oriental Harmony scrub and massage (though that certainly doesn't hurt). Perched on the 37th floor of Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo in the Nihonbashi Mitsui Tower, the spa gives you a dazzling vista of the city below through top-to-toe windows. Our favorite view is from the Matsukaze Suite, where you can gaze out of two walls of windows from a marble infinity tub.

Our Inspector's Highlights
• Every service kicks off with a foot ritual, which symbolizes the washing away of the outside world. The gesture is a tipoff that a water theme flows through the spa.

• One could say the calm begins as soon as you enter the reception area, where a shiny smoky-beige fabric (a nod to the hotel’s former life as a kimono shop) that resembles cascading water covers the walls.

• Get a glimpse of the city from the serene spa’s stunning jetted pool, water lounge and dry sauna, all of which have floor-to-ceiling windows.

• Men have their own menu filled with delights such as the Stone Age Man, which starts with a mini facial and ends with a hot stone back massage.

• Alternatively, the Modern Man includes a body scrub, back massage and foot treatment.
Things to Know
• Set in the Nihonbashi business district, the spa is connected to Mitsukoshi, the city’s oldest department store.

• The most popular treatment, and our personal favorite, is the Time Ritual, which allows you to reserve a block of time rather than specific services, allowing the Tokyo haven to tailor the treatments to your needs.

• It’s an ideal spot for a fun spa and shopping day.

• To make the most of your time at the Japanese spa, arrive an hour early. That way you can do a circuit in the crystal steam room and ice fountain arctic refresher and still have time to take in the mesmerizing views.
The Treatments
• The detoxifying Razul Escape includes a full-body exfoliation, a mud application and thermal steam before a massage.

• The Moments to Share spoils couples with a deep-cleansing facial and a rubdown.

• The relaxing Oriental Essence massage helps jetlagged travelers or anyone carrying a lot of stress; it focuses on the spots that carry tension.

• In the therapeutic massage, therapists relieve your aches using deep strokes with their elbows and forearms.

• The Efficiency Facial cleanses, soothes and refreshes your skin in 50 minutes.
The Rooms
• Of the nine treatment rooms, the five spacious spa suites offer the most pampering experience.

• Suites provide perks such as your own dining area, dual massage beds, private bathrooms and showers and glimpses of Mount Fuji.

• A handful of the treatments are specially made for the spa suites. Take the Kiatsu, a blend of Thai massage and shiats exclusively takes place in the Asanagi Suite.

• Our pick is the half-day Ultimate Bathing Ritual, which takes place in the Matsukaze Suite. To prep you for a bath, your skin is treated to an exfoliating scrub and then a nourishing layer of sweet almond oil.

• The water motif, also featured in the waiting room and relaxation lounge, ripples through the treatment rooms. Light textiles bearing suibokuga, Japanese ink paintings, amid wood floors and zebrawood walls.
