The new Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo, has opened the Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo located on the top two floors of the hotel.
General Manager Christian Hassings commented on the opening saying, “We are very pleased to bring our expertise in spa design and operation to Japan’s sophisticated spa market - a market defined by its highly discriminating clientele. We think consumers here will welcome and be excited by the unique wellness facilities and treatments that the Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo will offer.”
Perched on the tower’s 37th and 38th floors, the 950 sq metre haven offers an extensive mix of therapies, from hydro- and heat-based treatments to ice fountains for skin toning and tightening. The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo is also one of the first in the city to offer its facilities to local residents as well as in-house guests at no extra charge, thus fulfilling the true role of a day spa.
In nine treatment rooms, including five Spa Suites, massage and other therapies based on Chinese, European, Mediterranean, Indian, Arabian and Thai traditions will be tailored to address each guest’s needs. Relaxation, wellness and beauty components draw upon ancient and contemporary techniques and are conceived and presented as a personal journey toward conscious wellbeing. Designed to ensure total privacy, some of the Spa Suites feature dedicated facilities for heat-based treatments, such as feature baths, steam showers and Rasul rooms.
Professional body and skin care products by Comfort Zone and Aromatherapy Associates will be used in the treatments, as will the luxury hotel group’s signature line, which includes aromatherapy-based body and bath oils, stylish spa-wear, tea-infusions and an Asian-inspired CD collection.Ê
A highlight of the Mandarin Oriental Spa experience is the “Time Ritual,” for which guests book an allotment of time rather than a specific treatment. Intended to restore the body’s natural state of equilibrium, the experience shifts the emphasis to a personalised assessment of the guest’s needs on that given day, ensuring the ultimate treatment for body, mind and spirit. Other original offerings include the Tokyo unique Adzuki Ritual, Absolute Pearl body wrap, Oriental Harmony, featuring Mandarin Oriental’s own frangipani and jasmine infused signature body oil and salt scrub, and the indulgent “Taste of Traditions,” developed in conjunction with Comfort Zone, which fuse therapeutic elements from the Orient, Mediterranean, India and Middle East.
Located on the 38th floor, a high-performance fitness centre complements the Spa, offering a range of state of the art cardiovascular, strength training and pilates equipment to hotel guests with stunning cityscape views of the city and Sumida River.
