About Mandarin Oriental, Washington D.C.
Presiding in the center of the nation’s capital, the Mandarin Oriental, Washington D.C., overlooks the Jefferson Memorial and is within walking distance of treasured memorials, monuments and museums. The 400-room hotel boasts the Forbes Four Star Spa at Mandarin Oriental, a serene haven of heat, water and signature rituals. Amenities like amethyst crystal steam rooms, a vitality pool, warm plunge pool and ice fountain promote pure relaxation, while holistic skincare and body therapies harmonize the senses. Spa-goers can schedule à la carte treatments or book blocks of time; known as the Time Rituals™, these bespoke staples begin with reflexology followed by an assessment by a trained therapist who will decide on tailored services that best suit the guest’s needs. Private yoga sessions are available upon request.
The Spa at Mandarin Oriental offers 10,500 square feet of complete serenity in the middle of busy downtown Washington. The Forbes Four Star-awarded spa features eight treatment rooms, amethyst crystal steam rooms, experience showers, relaxation areas and vitality pools. Spa interiors are an expression of Zen-like tranquility, with hues symbolizing the warmth of the earth and sun, along with oak floors, light sycamore walls and a burnished bronze ceiling that add a sophisticated touch.
In addition to ESPA facials and body services (along with the CACI non-invasive face-firming treatment), the spa offers a signature line of therapies created in conjunction with Traditional Chinese Medicine specialists and aromatherapists. Each signature therapy begins with a private guest-therapist consultation and involves a body massage ritual utilizing the Mandarin Oriental’s custom-blended essential oils. Other trademark treatments include Oriental Harmony, which commences with a soothing foot bath, followed by a body scrub and head/foot massage.
