Eight Mandarin Oriental hotels were recently awarded the prestigious 2012 Forbes Five Star Spa Award, out of only 30 Forbes Five Star Spas worldwide.
Mandarin Oriental hotels in Hong Kong, New York, Miami, Las Vegas and Boston who had been awarded in previous years, were this year joined by Mandarin Oriental, Macau and Mandarin Oriental, Singapore.
These awards are further confirmation that Mandarin Oriental spas continue to set the bar in terms of design and service, and have been added to a growing list of trophies that have been won throughout the year. At the Luxury SpaFinder 2011 ‘Readers’ Choice Awards’ in Las Vegas, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group was recognised as one of the ‘Top Ten Best Brands’, with Mandarin Oriental, New York and Boston both garnering ‘Best Urban Hotel Spa’ awards. Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas, which opened to great acclaim at the end of 2009, was recognised in the ‘Top Ten’ category for ‘Accommodation’, ‘Environmental Practices’, ‘Interior Design’ and ‘Favourite New Getaway Spa’.
At the prestigious Asia Pacific Crystal Spa Awards the Group was voted ‘Best Wellness Group’, with Mandarin Oriental Dhara Dhevi, Chiang Mai winning ‘Best Resort Spa’ and ‘Best Signature Treatment’, and Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo honoured as the city’s ‘Best Hotel Spa’. The most recent AsiaSpa Awards also saw The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong winning the ‘Men’s Spa Treatment of the Year’.
