Honour thy father

Know a father who deserves a relaxing break? Treat him to a revitalising Refined Man Experience at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental Pudong, Shanghai. This unique cleansing and relaxation treatment utilises fine essential oils and natural botanicals, to ease your dad’s mind and soothe his soul. If he prefers a different kind of wellbeing boost, he could head to a private cellar wine-tasting session, inside the award-winning Yong Yi Ting restaurant; or perhaps indulge in the classic French fare of Fifty 8º Grill.
