Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I chose this spa to spend the morning of my 30th birthday, a special day for me. I purchased a voucher at Siam Paragon, lured in with their Sales pitch of the spa being the only Forbes 5 star in Bangkok, and made the booking on the spot for my birthday. I told them I was celebrating my birthday on the day of the spa booking, and I heard the person tell the hotel, while making my booking, that I would be celebrating my 30th birthday. I never recieved a confirmation call or email prior to my booking, so the evening before I emailed just to confirm. They emailed back to confirm, and told me to bring my voucher.

I arrived at the Mandarin hotel, and asked where the spa was. The person at the door pointed and said its 'across' and told me to go left and left again. I walked but was confused as I only saw the water. Another staff member then told me the spa is across the river and I would need to take their boat. This was not told to me during the bookijt process, during the confirmation process, or when I walked in to the hotel.

Upon arriving into the spa, there was no one there, so I was confused where to go. I waited over 1 minute walking around until a staff member came out. The massage itself was good. After finishing, they brought me to the lounge, which had empty/dirty cups and trays everywhere, even though there was only 1 person sitting. The therapist gave me my tea, thanked me and left, not telling me where to go next etc.

I went back down to the main floor and there was confusion about my bill etc. They had to ask me my name and then go check the status. I then left after everything was settled. Not once did anyone mention my birthday. Not once did anyone even ask how I was doing. The service was cold and and only surface level friendly. For the amount I paid for that voucher, I could have recieved the same service for less than half the price.

This is not Forbes 5 star service by any means, and I do not recommend this spa for the prices it offers.

So I went to the Spa Studio at Mandarin Oriental earlier this year and came across it again now, I had to write a review!
First off, what an excellent experience! From the moment I entered and met with the reception I was greeted warmly and handed a welcome drink and fresh towel. Very welcome for this warm weather!
After changing slippers, I was taken to a very nice looking room, spacious, open, and overlooking another deck. Was definitely beautiful. Got changed and started my treatment.
I got a full treatment by one of the staff and Syrine who was extremely knowledgeable in matters of feet, nails, skin, and so much more. I actually left learning a lot about my own feet and hands and required future care for them. It took about 2 hours if i'm not mistaken, where they went on with the most thorough treatment I've ever had! Nails were done, shined up, and felt great.
I didn't realize that walking felt better after a treatment like this. I guess I shouldn't be doing my own pedicures at home haha.
Anyways, 5 starts for the team, the experience, and Syrine for a wonderful experience! Definitely want to try this again sometime!

I spent a wonderful birthday morning in the incredible spa. The staff here are the most welcoming and friendly spa staff I have had the pleasure to meet. From arrival here you are taken care of with a 5 * experience to best all 5 * experiences. The facilities are incredible and the spa is beautiful and stunning. The spa staff gave me a birthday I would never forget, I can’t thank them enough for their kindness. The MO spa I’d undoubtably the worlds number 1 in my eyes and I can’t wait to visit again.

Full disclosure. I didnt even go here. I tried to book on their website for my wife and I. The booking categories do not match the brochure on the website. Tried to book a traditional thai massage that was not on the list. So I tried to book another one that was available on the list. Then I was told it was available for one guest and not the other. So I gave up. In this day and age, you need a better website. You lost business today because of it.

Pedicure for men with Guillaume at Bastien Gonzalez at the Oriental Spa. Combination of foot Massage, pedicure and medical foot treatment is a delight. Was impressed by Guillaumes expertise and skilful handling. Truly worth the money - you walk away with new feet.

I stay in the Oriental every year since 25 years and use the spa services. Even after all these years it is breath taking to walk in there and be greeted by their lovely staff. The massage is wonderful and the rooms beautifully decorated. For me it is one of the best aspects of the Oriental Bangkok.
I would like to thank the entire spa staff for their warm welcome and Mr. Panuwat Sangkhaphet for his excellent massages.

No surprise why they are the best of the world (The Forbes Magazine). I had tried the spa from many places Bangkok and many cities around the world but I were most impressed of the services and facilities here. The facilities are gorgeous beautiful gold teak wood house nicely done decorated. The best of all are the service from receptionists thru the therapist (Miss Chanida), who were so polite and expert in providing my best aroma therapy massage ever. 10 out the 10 Bravo!! We shall be back again soon. <3 <3

Today was my fourth visit to MO Spa. This is indeed a luxurious and exquisite place. I had a facial and a foot treatment; very unique foot massage, I've never experienced anything so special in my one year of living in Thailand. Facial was wonderful, they used the best products on my skin. I very much enjoyed it.

The Oriental Spa experience was wonderful from the moment we stepped off the shuttle boat from the Mandarin Oriental hotel. We were led through a lush green garden to the spa where our masseuses welcomed us. The massage room was beautifully decorated. The massage itself was fantastic and deeply relaxing. Then post-massage snack and ginger tea in a calming salon area was the perfect finish.

We can’t wait to come back again soon.
