A luxury wellness retreat allows you to relax, recharge and rejuvenate your mind and body. It’s designed to help you feel your best and a change of scenery can do wonders for your creativity and inspiration. With the recent change in weather here, and hopefully a little spring in your step – now is the time to invest in your personal self-care. Here are two award-winning options from Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, which offers world-class accommodations, spas and fine dining experiences, if you’re looking to venture out of town towards New York City or Boston. Plus, you can make a weekend getaway out of it and stay overnight to truly enjoy the exceptional service and luxurious amenities that Mandarin Oriental properties are known for delivering.

Mandarin Oriental, New York | 80 Columbus Circle

A stunning fusion of modern design with stylish oriental flair, Mandarin Oriental, New York offers breathtaking views of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline, as well as Five-Star hospitality, a state-of-the-art fitness center and 14,500-square foot spa. Designed to revitalize both mind, body and soul through a relaxing spa treatment, curated private wellness session, nourishing cuisine and luxurious accommodations, Mandarin Oriental, New York debuted a Suite Wellness Retreat accommodation package in late 2023. Guests are invited to embark on a rejuvenating wellness journey where spa specialists provide a 50-minute in-suite massage to relieve body strains, energize, and create a sense of balance and calm.

For a holistic wellness experience, a 60-minute private wellness session with a personal trainer is customized to the guest’s preference and abilities. With the guidance of the hotel’s Wellness Concierge, guests may choose from a restorative workout, yoga practice, mindfulness meditation, tai-chi, or Pilates session held in the privacy of their own suite, the fitness center or Central Park. Guests also have access to the hotel’s wellness facilities, such as its 75-foot indoor pool to enjoy a lap swim or a relaxing dip overlooking the Hudson River.

Mandarin Oriental, Boston | 776 Boylston Street

The luxurious Mandarin Oriental, Boston combines classic New England elegance with refined Oriental touches to create one of the most distinctive hospitality experiences in the region. Whether you want to drive, fly (Mandarin Oriental, Boston is a short, 15-minute drive from Logan International Airport) or take a train, this property connects its guests to the city’s finest shopping, cultural venues and business institutions from its prime location in the heart of the chic Back Bay on Boylston Street. Most importantly, the company recently announced the launch of a luxurious spa and wellness retreat to assist guests along their individual wellness journey.

Lead by highly trained spa, wellness and health experts, the two new Wellness Retreats guide guests in establishing goals and routines for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The two, three and five-night retreats, appropriately named Inner Strength and Outer Strength, are designed to provide a truly holistic physical and mental wellness experience, including a series of holistic spa treatments, private movement classes, wellness-focused meals featuring organic and sustainable ingredients and individual coaching led by skillfully trained spa practitioners and health experts. While the retreats have an overarching theme, the daily itinerary recommendations are each uniquely tailored by the wellness experts to every guest’s needs.  

Guests also have the option to add onto their experience with a selection of enhancements, including: Guided Meditation Session, Reiki Energy Therapy, Urban Forest Bathing and Women’s Empowerment Coaching. Wellness Retreat accommodations are in the largest luxury rooms and suites with the tranquility of city or garden views.
