The Spas at Mandarin Oriental announced the annual offer of a night of silence in their spas worldwide on 11 December 2019. On Silent Night, all the Group’s spas will offer their normal treatment menu, but after 5pm there will be no talking and no music within the spa to instill a sense of peace. 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. 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. – Jeremy McCarthy, Group Spa Director for Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group
Guests are also encouraged to take advantage of the Group’s Digital Wellness initiative. This provides guests with access to a range of wellness advice and activities designed to help them disconnect from technology. Mandarin Oriental has developed a number of tips that can help clear mental chatter and establish a healthy, digitally balanced lifestyle.
The Spas at Mandarin Oriental also created a Digital Wellness Escape. This 1 hour 20-minute experience focuses on grounding both body and mind through the power of human touch, and is designed to provide a calming and peaceful respite from the outside world and the stress of repetitive movements.
Wellness experts agree that silence, and the absence of incessant digital noise, is key to our health and wellbeing. What a perfect time of year to create an opportunity for people to experience disconnection, silence and stillness along with the health benefits that result. Mandarin Oriental’s Silent Night should become a model for all of us to practice throughout the year. – Susie Ellis, Chairman and CEO of the Global Wellness Institute
Guests can also enjoy additional events in certain locations in celebration of Silent Night, such as Silent Yoga in Bangkok, Guangzhou, Kuala Lumpur, Munich and Marrakech, Meditation Classes in Boston, Canouan, Macau and Hong Kong, or Singing Bowl therapies in Prague and Singapore. Mandarin Oriental Miami and Canouan will have massages on the beach to encourage guests to enjoy Silent Night outdoors and reconnect with nature.
