While Atlanta was on snow, ice and sleet alert 24-25 February, I was checking in to The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Atlanta for a 16-hour Matterport 3D Showcase photo shoot over the course of these two nights.
And, while I wasn't there for "treatments to relax and revive, from head to toe" I still had soothing evenings creating the three-dimensional video while listening to the spa music accompanied by calming lighting in a relaxing environment.
Surprisingly, even when The Spa is closed, there are still many people there. When I arrived shortly before closing, a few residents or guests were still using the Fitness Center while others were visiting the indoor pool.
Plus, housekeeping was freshing-up at the end of the evening while the morning Spa team was making sure everything was in place for the 5:30 am opening. Security helped me with unlocking some doors and engineering with resetting the lighting turning off the TV monitors.
Of the 13 spa suites, my favorite is the luxurious couples' stunning spa suite described on the Mandarin Oriental, Atlanta Spa Suites webpage as "A vast space with dark wood floors and light blue walls, facilities include a large marble soaking tub for two, private shower and changing area. In addition, there are two treatment tables, two comfortable chairs and a table to enjoy light refreshments."
Here are the two treatments that are available in this Spa Suite:
- 3 hours 40 minutes – This indulgent treatment begins with a soothing foot ritual and couple’s bath, followed by a full body exfoliation and scalp massage. After a relaxing shower, receive a customized full body massage and result oriented facial. To end, enjoy fresh fruit and juice in your couple’s sanctuary.
- 1 hour 50 minutes – Perfect for couples that are looking for a side-by-side spa experience, this treatment offers a full body exfoliation and a customized massage.
The next Matterport 3D Showcase WalkAround tour project at the Mandarin Oriental, Atlanta is the indoor pool with its outdoor patio looking out on the English Garden courtyard. While we've completed the indoor portion of the 3D Video shoot, we're waiting for good weather to complete the outdoor patio.
