The 5-star hotel that backs on to Hyde Park itself, where you will find a Far Eastern theme with an Edwardian touch, and part contemporary on ground floor, and within its spa. Although, the corridors and bedrooms are very traditional in decoration, where the Queen here self would definitely feel at home. Today the dreamy Mandarin Oriental in London is undergoing one of the most immense renovations in its 115-year history.
“We’ve been inspired” they quote in their press notes. Internationally renowned interior designer Joyce Wang oversees this extensive project, as she seeks inspiration from the nature found around the hotel and from its royal heritage and the glamour of the Golden Age era. A familiar name for Mandarin Oriental, Wang recreates the luminous reception areas with two striking glass chandeliers looking like blooming flower. Elegant, acorn-inspired lights, carpets resembling falling leaves, horsehair light sconces and gloss-painted patterns that reference the horse-riding paths through Hyde Park.
“Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London is one of the city’s most legendary hotels with an unparalleled location. We are known for our royal history and we are the only hotel overlooking Hyde Park with a view of the Royal Horse Guards passing daily. We are delighted to embark on this comprehensive renovation, which will result in superior facilities for all of our guests, and further enhance our reputation as one of the best hotels in the world,” said Gérard Sintès, General Manager of Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London.
The hotel’s restaurants and bars, along with its dreamy ballroom and meeting facilities will undergo a soft redecoration as well. The Mandarin Oriental is known to cherish true craftsmanship and artistry skills, and many of the new features within the hotel will be mostly hand-crafted. Features include hand-painted silk wallpapers, hand-etched mirrors and a curated library.
Each Mandarin Oriental hotel is known for owning a fan design that reflects its ravishing character. Inspired by Hyde Park, British fashion designer Jenny Packham has designed their new fan; of decorated organza with sequin and crystal dew drops.
The 181- bedroom hotel renovation plans are set to be completed in Spring 2018. The Mandarin Oriental is known for acting with “passion and imagination” to entertain and ensure their guests feel comfortable just like at home and part of the city they are visiting.
