Mandarin Oriental opening Milan and Marrakech properties this summer

Mandarin Oriental is set to open two new resorts this summer; a 104-bedroom property in Milan, which will open 15 July, and a 63-bedroom property in Marrakech, due to open at the end of August. Both will feature spas.

The Milan spa will contain six treatment rooms, including two for couples and one VIP, as well as a mani/pedi station and outsourced hair services. Wet facilities include sauna and steam cabins by Starpool, a steam shower in the VIP room by Starpool, and a whirlpool in the VIP room by Tueco. Product lines include Aromatherapy Associates with ESPA facials.

The interior is designed by Antonio Citterio, and spa treatments feature local heritage. An almost three-hour-long Imperial Roman treatment is based on ancient Roman bathing rituals and uses Italian ingredients of honey, olive oil, oregano seeds, rice, and Frankincense or rose oil. The Opera of the Soul treatment focuses on an opening of the throat chakra to improve communication and one’s own voice, the company said.

The Marrakech property, designed by Paris-based Gilles & Bossier, includes two couples' treatment rooms, four single treatment rooms, one beauty station, two manicure stations and one pedicure station, as well as outsourced hair services. Steam showers are in each room, and couples' rooms contain a soaking tub. The spa also includes male and female hammams with two scrub rooms and a 14m (46ft) indoor swimming pool.

The spa features an “indoor-outdoor connection,” said group director of spa Jeremy McCarthy, with outdoor gardens in each treatment room. It also includes a fireplace in the lounge area and a reflecting pool.

A three-hour Berber-inspired Mour Akouch treatment integrates a traditional hammam, a full-body wrap with crushed honey and ginger, a head massage with argan oil, and a deep massage. A more than four-hour Caracal treatment includes a 60-minute hammam, hair washing ritual, oxygen facial, scalp massage and 60-minute massage, followed by a blow dry and makeup application.
