Entirely devoted to well-being and relaxation, the Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Paris offers a holistic experience to promote complete harmony between the mind and body. Renowned interior designer Sybille de Margerie has transformed more than 9,600 sq. ft. of space into a tranquil retreat, creating an environment of simplicity and purity. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, guests will enjoy personalized service and tailor-made experiences. Mandarin Oriental’s bespoke “Time Rituals™” encourage guests to book time rather than specific treatments, so that services can be customized to meet individual needs.

Upon entering the Spa, patrons are shown to a private spa suite with wardrobe, facilities, shower and steam room. Decorated in shades of amaranth, taupe and silver, the intimate comfort of the Spa Suites allows guests to completely unwind and enjoy the unique experience of Mandarin Oriental’s award-winning spa treatments. Spa Suite experiences commence with an in-depth interview with an expert practitioner to ensure treatments are adapted to each individuals’ needs and preferences. Following the interview, treatments begin with Mandarin Oriental’s Tian Quan Therapy, a Chinese bathing ritual, and steam shower – which is particularly beneficial in increasing blood circulation, detoxification and opening the pores to allow any oils and creams used in the treatment that follows to penetrate deeper into the skin.

Developed in consultation with specialists in traditional Chinese medicine and master aromatherapists, Mandarin Oriental’s Signature Therapies emerge from Oriental philosophy and combine the relaxing effects of massage with the benefits of bespoke custom-blended essential oils. One such treatment, the Hu-Tieh Quan (Butterfly Spring), starts with a bath of warming ginger, uplifting mandarin and frankincense. The journey continues with a nourishing and relaxing full body wrap and head massage, targeting key trigger points on the scalp. The treatment is completed with an evolution massage, designed to open the body and release tension in particular in the upper body, neck and shoulders.

The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Paris also encompasses beauty and will feature an exclusive collection of exceptional facial therapies by Guerlain. Since 1828, Guerlain has brought excellence and effectiveness to the art of skin treatment. Each therapy is a sensorial delight that captures performance and refinement in carefully formulated, delicately fragranced textures.
