The Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok’s world-class Oriental Spa is already popular among guests and locals alike, but the hotel’s new, facials-focused Beauty by Mandarin Oriental (opened September 18) takes the property's program to new heights.

The Garden Wing—a colonial-era-inspired section of Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok, which is linked to the hotel’s original building and was previously used as accommodations—now houses four beautifully appointed treatment suites. Here, aestheticians perform exclusive, high-technology facials featuring products from !QMS Medicosmetics, an innovative skincare brand by cosmetic surgeon Erich Schulte.

“In this new space we can offer guests high-performance treatments that are separate from the offerings in the spa, so they can enjoy more options in line with their lifestyle aspirations and personal goals,” says Amanda Hyndman, general manager of the hotel. “Results-driven treatments from !QMS in Beauty by Mandarin Oriental and The Spa will remain fully committed to holistic well-being.”

The service menu features no less than nine facials, from a 45-minute deep-cleansing blitz to a 90-minute, ultra-targeted, antiaging skin-renewal ritual called the Pure Oxygen Treatment, which harnesses a concentrate of oxygen to amplify the smoothing and toning qualities of the products used. Beyond facials, body treatments (like the skin-firming Body Definer), manicures and pedicures are available, as well as a full retail section of beauty items that will support at-home maintenance. 48 Oriental Ave.; 66-2/659-9000;
