Built on ancient Eastern healing traditions, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental is officially open in Abu Dhabi.
With Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi recently converting into a Mandarin Oriental property, it was only a matter of time before its onsite spa followed suit. Enter: The Spa at Mandarin Oriental. Built on ancient Eastern healing traditions and personalised therapies, The Spa is a sanctuary of calm, delivering restorative experiences to both resort guests and wellness enthusiasts in the capital
Accented by bubbling water features, colourful wall mosaics, and scents of neroli and orange blossom, the recently rebranded spa blends Mandarin Oriental’s signature wellness wisdom with the rich heritage of the region to encourage harmony. Among the highlights of the new offerings at The Spa are Oriental Qi – the brand’s signature treatment – and the destination-inspired Essence of Abu Dhabi. Other exclusive therapies and specialised treatments are designed using products from a range of internationally acclaimed brands such as OTO CBD, Tata Harper, and 111SKIN. Additionally, the unique Acqua di Parma Barbiere is ideal for pampering male guests with an experience born from the Italian art of shaving.
The Spa offers three unique hammam rituals that are inspired by Moroccan and Turkish heritage as well as contemporary practices. The hammam is the crown jewel of the Arabic well-being tradition and a millenary heritage that celebrates the art of self-care and purification. The Spa also conducts Mindful Meetings, Visiting Wellness Practitioner Retreats, and corporate initiatives. Fatima and Friends spa treatments are available, too, designed for children six years and older using organic products to pamper delicate skin with subtle fragrances.
Covering an area of 500 square metres with nine private Treatment Suites, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental creates unique experiences that nourish the mind, body and soul based on three key facets: Mystical Morocco, Oriental Wisdom, and Connection to Nature. The timeless tradition of the exquisite white-gold Royal Hammam is at the heart of the Mystical Morocco theme, while award-winning holistic therapies and Mandarin Oriental touches deliver signature Oriental experiences.
Among the extensive catalogue of treatments on offer? Intelligent Movement, the OTO Experience Body Massage, Tata Harper Detox Body Wrap, 24k Gold Subtle Energies Facial, and Celestial Black Diamond Lift Facial. But for a truly unique spa experience, book one of The Hideaway Spa Cabanas to enjoy an al fresco treatment on the resort’s private beach — the Lomi-Lomi Coconut Ritual comes highly recommended.
