London Mandarin unveiled

One of London’s top hotels, the Mandarin Oriental at Hyde Park, has completed the most extensive restoration in its 115-year history, in a programme it says was designed to confirm the property’s position as one of the best in the world (BTN 25 September 2017).

Interior designer Joyce Wang has overseen the design of all 181 guest rooms, suites and public areas to acknowledge the hotel’s royal heritage and parkside location, as well as the glamour of the early 20th century’s Golden Age of travel.

Art deco-inspired features include curated artworks and custom-designed furniture, plus a green “living wall” that surrounds the inner courtyard to provide calm interior views.

The hotel’s 40 suites range in size from 47sq m to 397sq m, the largest, located on the top floor, consisting of the three-bedroom Mandarin Oriental Penthouse with private terraces.

In every suite, guests will find reading libraries curated by London bookseller Heywood Hill, along with record players with vintage vinyl collections and yoga mats for private practise.

All accommodation comes equipped with GHD hair straighteners, Nespresso coffee makers, his and her Miller Harris bathroom amenities and Jo Hansford hair products. The next-generation Spa at Mandarin Oriental has also been redesigned by New York designer Adam D. Tihany.
