    Inspired by the exciting modern lines of the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London, the brief for the Mandara Spa interiors was to mirror the feel of the hotel with a contemporary twist, whilst maintaining the luxurious touch of Asia. The 700sq metre Mandara Spa offers guests a unique sensory experience, inviting you to escape your world, and indulge in a Mandara moment. The interiors of the Mandara spa have drawn inspiration from around the world from Mondrian paintings to Japanese Shoji screens, focusing on the lines to showcase the Asian elements. A giant bamboo forest has been created with Petung bamboo cleverly integrated with coloured hand-blown glass, embedded with Mandara Spa ingredients such as Ylang Ylang, Coffee and Lavender.

    Beautiful ancient Sanskrit writing scrolls along the curved ceilings, with names of Balinese flowers, whilst the spa is mood lit with ‘tear drops’ and ‘cubes’ designed with new environmentally friendly, plug-less LED technology, charged through magnetic induction. Finally, no spa is complete without an ever flowing black stone fountain of water, essential for the absorption of negative energy. The overall effect is an exciting modern twist in bringing some exquisite elements of Bali to Britain.

    The spa facilities include one double and eight single treatment rooms, two pedicure and three manicure stations. The treatment menu offers Mandara Spa for indulgent body therapy and Elemis skincare for facials and detox therapies. As a finishing touch, select from a range of Bliss nail and waxing services and indulge yourself with a glass of champagne and seasonal berries. For those seeking the ultimate relaxation opt for a 20 minute power nap after your treatment to help you unwind.

    The Spa Boutique offers a beautiful range of products and accessories from the new Mandara Spa range and luxury British spa and skincare brand, Elemis, as well as best-sellers from Bliss, allowing you to continue your spa experience when you return home.

    Adjacent to Mandara Spa is the Fitness Centre which features a gymnasium, steam and sauna rooms, a 15 metre heated swimming pool and changing rooms.
