The Landmark Mandarin Oriental
2. The Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong
A stunning circular glass-walled bathroom with Sodashi soap. This Australian skin care company makes chemical-free soap exclusively for The Landmark Mandarin Oriental. Filling up the dramatic spherical spa tub for a good soak, there were plush cotton robes hanging next to the nearby soothing rainforest shower.
After a bath, I enjoyed putting some Happy Feet oil on my feet. It's a refreshing blend of peppermint to perk up hot and tired feet after climbing and exploring the hills of Hong Kong Island. There is also a bottle of tree tea oil to provide antibacterial protection and a deodorizing effect.
My feet enjoyed the plush slippers with the signature M on the top located next to the king size bed decorated with Frette linen and goose down bedding. Inside the walk-in wardrobe were black silk robes hanging inside. Very decadent.
