The Spa @ Mandarin Oriental

Call me a fan (pun intended), I’m an admirer of Mandarin Oriental. Today, we’ll dive deeper into this zen world.

We’ll go into an oasis of rejuvenation and relaxation…

It’s time to say hi to their luxurious spa ūüôā

Welcome to The Spa @ Mandarin Oriental

 

Upon check-in, the heart-warming Kamia notices how sore I am from all my travels…

 

Before going into the welcome lounge, she presents me with some refreshing SpringBerry Antioxidant Tea infused with acai & pomegranates.

Welcome Lounge

 

While Miki & Paul fill out the lifestyle consultation form, I opt to sit in one of their oversized seats. The surroundings exudes an aura of a traditional Asian luxurious spa. I almost feel like I’m back in Bangkok!

Prepare yourself for a delectable 3+ (or more) hour experience! This spa is truly next level. Get ready to soothe your sore muscles, clear your head, and spoil your skin in all the treatment rooms it offers.
Each guest is assigned to a locker where you change into their fluffy bathrobes and towels.

They have a custom shower for you to enjoy before you enter the treatment rooms. If you want to know what showering in heaven feels like… this is probably it.¬†

 

You have FIVE modes to choose from.

Cascade: Cool rushing pressurized waters rains from above with eight side jets massaging you.

Island Storm: The surround sound system plays thunder and lightning sounds while the rain shower and jets pours water down from above. 

Tropical Rain (my personal favorite): Warm rain and mist gently pours from all ten jets for an awesome AWESOME shower. 

Arctic Mist (meh): Just mist that barely tickles your body… I would personally just skip this one.¬†

Body Spray: Kind of like a hardcore jacuzzi… warm strong pressurized jets massage you from both sides.¬†

Hands down, the best shower you will ever have in your life

 

 

After that mind-blowing shower, I need to sit down and just take a moment to reflect how amazing this place is…

Ok. Time to take a dip in the pool!

Similar to W Taipei’s¬†spa, this pool features a massaging¬†function with gentle streams of jacuzzi jets.

At the same time, you can admire the sights of Las Vegas Boulevard and Crystal Mall.

One of my personal favorite is the eucalyptus steam room service that the spa provides.  During the treatment, the staff administer aromatherapy sprays into the room for a relaxing detox.

After the steam session, another staff comes in and hands each guest a cold towel for everyone to cool down in the hot room.

If that isn’t enough, there’s a shower within the steam room too!

Personalized Steam Room & Sauna Service

 

 

An unique feature is the Laconium Rooms. Inside, the walls, floors, & seats all radiate heat evenly to treat your lower sore back.

 

Close your eyes…. time for a Zzzzzzzzz… nap ¬†ūüôā

While admiring and taking in all the treatments, there are opulent relaxation areas for a leisure read, snack, or drink.

For couples and groups, there are also co-ed areas for people to mingle & meet.

Overall, this spa is heavenly serene. The service is outstanding. And the hospitality makes me wish this is my second-home.

Truly, the staffs here bend over backwards to make sure you are well accommodated in the spa. To this day, I still think about¬†the eucalyptus service in the steam room… or the SpringBerry tea ‚̧

 

On my way out, I bid farewell to Kamia and the team for a wonderful stay.

I feel like a new bear.
