The Mandarin Oriental Mayfair will open on Hanover Square, close to Oxford Street.
It comes nearly two decades after the opening of the group’s flagship Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park hotel, which is home to the two Michelin-starred Dinner by Heston Blumenthal restaurant and chef Daniel Boulud’s Bar Boulud.
Billed as an ‘intimate, boutique’ property with 50 guestrooms and suites, the new Mayfair site will feature a ‘vibrant’ fine dining restaurant, lobby lounge, bar and private roof terrace and bar.
The development will also house 80 private residences on the building’s upper floors, with access to hotel services such as an indoor pool, housekeeping and ‘in-residence dining’.
“We are delighted to be opening a second Mandarin Oriental property in London, and look forward to extending the group’s legendary hospitality to another of the city’s most exclusive addresses,” says James Riley, group chief executive of Mandarin Oriental.
The project is owned by Clivedale London, an independent, Mayfair based developer.
The Mandarin Oriental Group purchased its Hyde Park site in 1996 and it reopened in 2000 following a £57m restoration.
It underwent a second multi-million pound revamp this year, including a ‘soft renovation’ of Dinner by Heston Blumenthal.
