New York-based hospitality designer Adam D. Tihany has revealed details of the newly-renovated spa at The Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park.
The Spa at Mandarin Oriental is due to open in May this year and was overseen by Tihany and his design studio.
The new spa is designed to create a luxurious and peaceful atmosphere to aid relaxation, and provide guests with ‘a haven of tranquility’.
It unites traditional Chinese elements with a contemporary environment, and will feature a nature-inspired colour palette, with solid wood and precious metals. It will also include two floral walls, to symbolise rebirth and energy flow.
“Our work centres around the art of moving people through space and creating an atmosphere that is unique and inspirational. People go to a spa looking for a particular experience; our job is to direct the attention and engage the senses in a way that will enrich the experience,” said Tihany.
"We want guests entering the new spa to immediately feel enveloped in luxury and tranquility."
"We relay the sense of tranquility with the use of soft lines and neutral tones that are also reflected in glass panel features and more subtle metallic finishes," he added.
The spa will have 14 treatment rooms, and a new Oriental suite with two massage beds and a Rasul water temple, a skin-conditioning treatment which combines heat, steam and mud.
The extensive spa treatment menu will feature a range of Mandarin Oriental’s own signature therapies, as well as a range of face and body treatments using Mandarin Oriental’s signature oils, as well as products from brand-partners Aromatherapy Associates, Sodashi and Linda Meredith.
The spa has also announced a new partnership with Swiss cosmeceutical brand Nescens, and will offer anti-ageing face and body treatments for both men and women.
In addition, the spa will include two beauty rooms, a Bastien Gonzalez nail studio, a consultation room for traditional Asante Chinese Medicine treatments, and a fitness centre, outfitted by leading equipment supplier Technogym.
Guests will be encouraged to arrive up to 45 minutes prior to treatments to enjoy the facilities, which also include a zen colour therapy relaxation area, vitality pool and amethyst crystal steam room.
The Spa at the Mandarin is currently recruiting for a Spa Therapist
