Best of Boston

2016 Best Day Spa

Mandarin Oriental

Close your eyes and imagine the sound of a gentle waterfall as you stroll into the Mandarin. A staffer discreetly delivers a hot towel and a cup of tea. The warm vitality pool beckons, as does the quartz-crystal steam room. You sprawl upon a chaise in the relaxation lounge, blanket and strawberry water at the ready. All of this before your hot stone massage commences. Are you relaxed yet?
