Travel Review: Discover the Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona

Lindsay Judge   |   14 - 06 - 2019

The luxury hotel giant debuts a glamorous and exclusive new residence in Spain’s stylish city.

 

Situated on one of Barcelona’s most famous boulevards, Passeig de Gràcia, you’ll find the new Mandarin Oriental Residences, Barcelona. Developed by KKH Property Investors, the property is the first standalone residences from the renowned hotel brand and A&E was one of the first to experience this exclusive location.

 

The 20-storey tower, designed by Carlos Ferrater, is the tallest residential building in the city and has some of the most spectacular views. With interior design by Muza Lab, there are 30 one, two and three bedroom apartments and four four-bedroom penthouses. The largest, the full floor penthouses, boasts 360-degree views of the city, sea and mountains.

 

 

 

 

The apartments, of course, benefit from the same level of quality of service and lifestyle as all Mandarin Oriental properties around the world. The Residences will have its own private on-site amenities, including a fitness centre, spa, residents’ lounge, rooftop garden and swimming pool.

 

There will also be a 24-hour concierge and doorman providing services such as in-residence dining and event catering. Owners will also have access to the facilities at the nearby hotel, the Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona, which includes an award-winning spa, bars and the two-Michelin-starred Moments restaurant.

 

 

When residents want to venture out to the city, they are just a stone’s throw away from luxury shopping destinations and exceptional dining. As well as some of Barcelona’s architectural masterpieces can be found locally including Gaudí’s Casa Batlló and Casa Mila.

 

Paul Massot, group development director, Mandarin Oriental, said, “We are delighted to be introducing the first standalone Residences in a city known for its culture, diversity, gastronomy, history and architecture. Since its opening in 2009, Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona has captivated guests and locals alike with exceptional food and beverage offerings, an acclaimed spa, and our legendary service.

 

“Our 34 new owners will enjoy the security and privacy afforded by the standalone building in addition to the five-star service and amenities of Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona.”

 

 

 

“We are seeing a growing global trend for branded residences in urban locations and Barcelona is the ultimate urban destination with its mix of city culture and lifestyle”, says Rod Taylor, head of international new developments, Savills.

 

“With Mandarin Oriental, you know the level of service that you are going to get. The brand sets a very high standard in the quality of its finish, design and that legendary service.”

 

Full completion of the property will be in 2020.
