The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Washington D.C.

The Mandarin Oriental brand has gained international acclaim for its Asian-inspired spas, and The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Washington D.C. is no exception. Boasting an oversized lounge, hot-and-cold-water experiences and a crystal steam room, the Zen-like ambience doesn’t stop in the relaxation room.

Rather than reserving specific treatments, book two- or three-hour time rituals, where programs are designed to accommodate the unique needs of a client on a specific day. Each journey begins with a detoxifying foot bath and massage to cleanse the body, mind and spirit. Also popular is the 110-minute Thai massage, a light stretching technique performed while you are fully clothed.
