An underground passageway links it to the hotel, ensuring in-room guests complete privacy. Using Mandarin Oriental’s signature collection of luxury spa products, alongside internationally recognized spa company, Comfort Zone, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental tailors treatments to the specific needs of each guest, acknowledging their individuality.
