Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group’s European flagship property, Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London, recently concluded the first phase of its extensive restoration process, which is scheduled for completion in Q3 of 2018.
Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park has drawn the veil on 95 lavish new guest rooms and suites in the Knightsbridge wing. Additionally, the hotel’s classic entrance, notable main lobby and reception lounge have been reconfigured and redesigned to maximise natural daylight, while the building’s historic façade has been revitalised.
Each of the new guest rooms feature a unique and individual layout, adorned with alcoves, warm grey paneled walls and hand-gilded mirror artwork.
The rooms offer unprecedented views of trendy Knightsbridge, as well as the verdant garden of the inner courtyard. The furniture, just as lavish as the layout, includes beds with leather-tufted headboards, large leather-topped writing desks, rugs and wildlife embellishments, all emanating the beauty of the hotel’s park side location.
Meanwhile, the new suites feature their own unique layout and an elegant hallway entrance, with a living area furnished with a velvet-upholstered sofa, wing-back reading chairs and a leather-topped writing desk.
Stellar international designer, Joyce Wang is overseeing the entire design concept, drawing inspiration from the building’s Edwardian heritage, the hotel’s peaceful park side location, as well as the glamour of the early 20th century’s Golden Age of travel.
The second phase of the renovation on the Hyde Park side of the building has commenced, and will entail the complete restoration of all guest rooms and suites facing the park.
Furthermore, two new luxurious and expansive penthouse suites, with spacious private terraces offering extensive views of London’s skyline and the peaceful park, will be added.
Adam D. Tihany has taken charge of the design of the next-generation Spa at Mandarin Oriental, while the splendid Loggia, The Ballroom and Dinner by Heston Blumenthal will also undergo a soft refurbishment throughout this second phase.
