Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel Showcases the Finest in Asian Decor and Asian-Inspired Treatments With New Mandara Spa


LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ — The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel has something new and exciting in store for its guests. Amidst a newly designed “modern luxury” guest room that exudes comfort and relaxation and a complementing new corridor design, the hotel has opened a new Mandara Spa.

Located in the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, this 12,000 sq. ft ancient Asian-inspired retreat showcases an impressive look and feel of its own. A highlight of the spa’s services is Mandara’s signature Balinese massage, an eclectic variation of the traditional Swedish massage developed in Bali, which incorporates stretching, vigorous yet relaxing movements and elements of shiatsu. All of the spa’s offerings reflect the beauty, spirit and traditions of ancient times, along with the soul and ritual of Asian culture.

The spa includes 13 treatment rooms, including two couples suites; a steam room in designated male and female locker areas; a tea garden and meditation garden, featuring lakefront views and balconies, and a sophisticated nail and hair salon. The spa uses notable body products, Elemis and La Therapie, both highly regarded worldwide.

As a tribute to the intricate art and architecture of ancient Bali, the decor has been specially crafted to reflect contemporary Balinese handiwork. The tea garden is a hand-carved replica of a traditional Balinese bale, a thatched-roof open pavilion used for relaxation. The interior wall of this structure is flanked by contiguous seating, providing a restful relaxation area for guests to occupy in between services.

The meditation garden is customized to provide the most serene atmosphere, featuring a 25-ft Meru sculpture centerpiece (similar to a pagoda), surrounded by stone lanterns and thematic rock gardens. Guests can indulge in a selection of teas, mini facials and other “mini” services while relaxing in this area. The entire facility is designed in the truest Balinese style, including the trim work throughout the spa, which was hand-carved in Bali.

The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel is already noted for its unique architectural and thematic design. This colossal work of art, situated on 87 acres of lush lakefront property in the heart of the Walt Disney World (R) Resort, is a surprising icon noted for its 60,000-pound swans and mythical dolphins perched atop the peach and teal hotel, which can be seen throughout the Walt Disney World area. The addition of the Mandara Spa is another symbol of architectural achievement at the hotel and an attractive new facility for guests to enjoy.

According to Erik Berger, general manager, “The spa adds another dimension to the magical experience we provide.”
