Silent Night at The Spas at Mandarin Oriental Hotels

Silent Night at Spa at Mandarin Oriental New YorkToday, guests at The Spas at Mandarin Oriental Hotels receive the gift of silence via a brand-wide Silent Night. In an attempt to turn down the volume and embrace the precious sound of silence, after 5 pm, there will be no talking and no music within the spa. The purpose is to instill a sense of peace and allow for individuals to experience contemplation and mindfulness. The spas will continue to offer their normal treatment menus (with a few modifications), but all communication will take place in a brief consultation at the beginning of the spa journey before the guest changes into their robe. “A lot of the value of a spa experience comes from simply disconnecting from technology and experiencing time for yourself in silence,” says Jeremy McCarthy, group director of spa for Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group. “During this stressful time of the year, we want to create a space where people can press the pause button and have some time to think, meditate, or just take a break from being inundated with noise.”
