This page features information on and an extensive photo gallery of Mandara Spa, the pool areas, and the smaller piazzas at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, one of three premier on-site hotels at Universal Orlando Resort.

Portofino Bay Hotel – Mandara Spa

The Mandara Spa is a sanctuary where you can relax and discover the elixir of youth, not as a goal but as a moment of blissful reverie. Spa services include massage, skin care, beauty, body treatments, hydromassage, steam and sauna, lounges, refreshments, and hair and nail care. Portofino Bay guests can also request in-room massages, but there is an additional $60 charge, and only same-gendered masseuses will be dispatched.

Here are some photo highlights of the spa. (You can view the complete photo gallery at the bottom of the page.)
