Spa Time: Mandarin Oriental, Miami

 

Mandarin Suite at Mandarin Oriental, Miami
The Mandarin Suite has its very own Zen-like environment with views of Biscayne Bay. Added Bonus: Spa therapists can perform in-room spa treatments.

 

The multilevel spa at the Mandarin Oriental, Miami is worth a visit for the VIP suites alone; there are six of them, all with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Biscayne Bay. (Top Tip: If you book a treatment toward evening, you’ll witness some splendid sunsets over the water.)

The signature treatment is the Oriental Essence massage, which includes a consultation with the therapist and a full-body customized treatment. An interesting half-day program, drawing on Miami’s heritage, is the Latin Rhythms spa package, which includes a private Samba class followed by an exfoliation of lime, mint and sugar, and a hot stone massage. A Spa Mojito cocktail and a Latin-Asian bento box lunch are then served poolside.

Spa Director Osa Mallo ([email protected]; 305-913-8331) suggests reserving treatments a week in advance for weekends and holidays, though last-minute requests are usually accommodated.

Considering a bridal shower or other special event for your client? Consult Spa Sales Manager Stephanie Menendez ([email protected]; 305-913-3806), who is an expert at setting up suite and spa buyouts for bachelorette parties and other smaller groups. Note: If your client is traveling with children, there are yoga programs for those aged 5-11 and teen treatments that include manicures, pedicures and facials, as well as belly dancing and salsa classes.

If you want your room to have an inviting and peaceful spa vibe, opt for the one-bedroom Mandarin Suite, which has a living room, formal dining room, gourmet kitchen and a large private balcony accessible from every room. There’s also a spa serenity room with fabulous views of Biscayne Bay. If that’s taken, insiders tell us the Deluxe Veranda guest rooms are the hotel’s best-kept secret. They’re a step up from Deluxe Bay View rooms and have oversized terraces with views of the bay and the Miami skyline—perfect for entertaining a group of friends. Note: All rooms at the hotel have private balconies; the most popular are the Biscayne suites with stunning views of the bay and the bridge.

Chief Concierge Guillerme DeMelo ([email protected]; 305-913-3794) can procure a Vespa scooter for your client to tool around Miami; he’s also known to have arranged for a private jet to fly a guest and his date to Little Palm Island in the Florida Keys for a romantic dinner. His most famous feat, however, was shipping 100 palm trees to a guest’s home in the Middle East.

General Manager Jorge Gonzalez ([email protected]) welcomes questions from luxury travel advisors, who can also reach out to Leisure Sales Manager Wendy Blandon ([email protected]; 305-913-8348) or Director of Travel Industry Sales Karin Weber ([email protected]; 305-913-3805).
