Best of Boston

2018 Best Day Spa

The Spa at Mandarin Oriental

The staff recommends arriving 45 minutes before a scheduled treatment to take advantage of the amenities, but we can promise you that’s not enough time. You’ll want at least 30 minutes each for the quartz-crystal steam room and warm plunge pool, plus an hour for the experience shower, with its array of sprays and pressures. Then it’s off to your coffee-and-frankincense body scrub or collagen facial. You’ll want to spend so much time in the spa, in fact, that you might as well stay the night and do it all over again the next day.
