For as long as I have been a traveler, I have had a special place in my heart for the Mandarin Oriental hotel chain. I do not know if it is because I am obsessed with the Asian culture or because their name alone exudes the ultimate in luxury, but I am a loyal MO fan. Thus, when the MO, Miami approached me about experiencing their world renown spa the answer was an obvious one.
The hotel is tucked away in a prestigious part of Miami known as Brickell Key. When you arrive you immediately feel that amidst the bustling metropolis, you have found a secret hideaway.
My first stop of the afternoon was at their waterfront restaurant, Cafe Sambal. I was surrounded by stunning bay views while I dined on some of the most delicious sushi I have ever tasted. Before heading to the spa, I finished off the meal with some champagne to celebrate the day.
I once read a quote that really resonated with me:
Sometimes you want to expand your horizons, sometimes you are good right where you are.
And that is exactly how I felt once I entered the spa at the MO, Miami, I was more than good right where I was.
