Though each Mandarin Oriental hotel boasts a trifecta of grandiose design, holistic spas and Michelin-starred restaurants, the Mandarin Oriental experience is not cookie-cutter. These luxury hotels are the products of collaboration efforts between renowned architects and designers who strived to create varied hotel ambiences across their global properties. The multi-award winning spas draw on the brand's Oriental heritage, offering a range of services (including fitness, yoga, tai-chi, meditation, beauty and of course, relaxation) inspired by Far East tradition. And though it's not uncommon to sample a bit of Asian flavor at the in-house restaurants, dining at a Mandarin Oriental is also influenced by the hotel's home city. One element that remains consistent — no matter the hotel location — is the impeccable customer service. Because of the brand's esteemed reputation and popularity among travelers, many Mandarin Oriental hotels appear on our Best Hotels in the USA and Best Hotels in the Caribbean rankings lists.
