Spa Spotlight: Mandara Spa at the Lotte Hotel Moscow
Bringing its Balinese origins to Russia’s capital, Mandara Spa at the Lotte Hotel Moscow is an alluring respite that caters to the senses. Here, you’ll experience a sensory journey filled with spa traditions and modern techniques, unprovoked solace, meandering time and a stunning Asian landscape. If you didn’t know better, you’d think you’d been swept away on the island.
Carpets resemble droplets of water, and treatment rooms (Fabergé egg-shaped, with curved walls) are christened with names like Dew, Mist, Droplet and Sprinkle. Bamboo touches can be found in the gym and the pool area highlights stone sculptures and rocky walls to represent the Tanah Lot of Bali.
The Oxygen Therapy Massage (50 mins), combining a 20-minute inhalation of pure oxygen and chromatherapy –based, energy balancing visual projection followed by a tension-relieving massage, is a must, as is the Vitality River Bed treatment (25 mins). Debuting in Moscow, hydrotherapy combines with revitalized water, while jets rhythmically massage and soothe sore muscles. If you’re more apt for classic treatments, there are also Elemis facial and body treatments. Be sure to take advantage of the hydrotherapy oasis as well, which comes outfitted with a Jacuzzi, silk bath, hammam, sauna and ice fountain.
