Mandarin Oriental to reopen 10 months after fire

Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park will reopen in its entirety on Monday 15 April, having completed the most extensive restoration in its 117-year history just ten months after a fire ravaged the hotel.

Following the re-opening of the public spaces in December, the hotel has now unveiled all new guest rooms and suites, including two newly created penthouse suites.

Internationally renowned designer, Joyce Wang, has overseen the redesign of all guest rooms and suites, along with the creation of the hotel’s new Penthouses. All 181-guest rooms and suites are designed to be more “luxurious and comfortable than ever before”, with art deco-inspired features including curated artworks and custom-designed furniture.

Each of the hotel’s 40 suites range in size from the smallest, at 47 square metres, located within the turrets of the hotel, to the largest, at 444 square metres, which comprises the new three-bedroom Mandarin Oriental Penthouse with private terraces.

Consisting of two penthouse suites, the Mandarin Penthouse and the Oriental Penthouse can be interconnected to create one of London’s largest suites with three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a private dining room, two kitchens, and expansive views of Hyde Park and the London skyline.

New York designer Adam D. Tihany, has overseen the redesign of the next-generation Spa featuring 13 individual treatments rooms, an Oriental Suite with two massage beds and a Rasul water temple. Tilhany also has overseen the “light” refurbishment of Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, Bar Boulud, London and Mandarin Bar.

The hotel’s Ballroom and Loggia have also been restored to include 24-carat gilding of many original features. The renovation also includes a beautiful hand-painted Butterfly Terrace by artist Leah Wood, along with two new versatile meeting spaces, Asquith and Balfour, for private meetings and social soirees.

General manager Amanda Hyndman said: “Mandarin Oriental is enormously proud of the heritage of this historic hotel. The scope and intricate detail of this momentous renovation is designed to ensure this iconic London establishment is recognised as one of the finest hotels in the world. We look forward to welcoming our guests with kind and intuitive service that is truly British but reflective of our Oriental heritage.”
