Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo
Modern-day serenity is the theme captured by this expansive five-star hotel and spa. Accommodations have sprawling glass walls, gracing guests with endless city views. Thirty-six floors above the city bustle, its spa is a city-center sanctuary for personal meditation and discovery. Guests walk silent corridors that lead to four treatment rooms and five private spa suites. There, expert therapists provide services derived from Asian and Western traditions. Guests may also partake in heat and water experiences, plunge into the vitality pool, meditate in the crystal steam room, or splash in the ice fountain.
