I am a fan! The newly renovated Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park

When I recently stayed at the newly renovated Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park I was indulged happily by their colour schemes the minute I passed by the welcoming Porter.

It feels more like entering a private club than a hotel when you are welcomed at the concierge desk but as you know historical buildings always keep their origins and inner souls, as this one was a former gentlemen’s Club established in 1892.

The internationally renowned interior designer, Joyce Wang has been commissioned to create the overall design concept. She has taken her inspiration from the building’s Edwardian heritage, and the hotel’s peaceful park side location, as well as the glamour of the early 20thcentury’s Golden Age of travel.

Art deco inspired features and modern curated artworks as well as custom-designed furniture create a constant feeling of contemporary luxurious elegance and comfort.

 

Seven reasons to look forward to when booking your room at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park

Fine Art is a major theme and it couldn’t have been better placed than where it stands. A magnificent piece is Fredrikson Stallards HURRICANE which is the main art between the two reception desks. The piece is created from mirror polished aluminium and is part of the artists Crush collection.

 

Most furniture has been designed by Joyce Wang Studio especially for the site. The studio looked for inspiration to Hyde Park, different textures, colours and form. The aesthetic of the acron inspired by the crown jewels used during royal ceremonies hosted by the hotel in the past.

 

Each Room has its own personal flower bouquet, they change daily according to season and mood.

 

Breakfast is a treat, order your eggs Benedict or if you want to start your day healthy choose from the Health conscious menu designed by Pilates Guru Hollie Grant

 

The Hotel is putting an emphasize on details, Edwardian elements combined with modern design. You will feel truly comfortable at home and never bored by what you discover.

 

In this case do not miss a morning swim unless you prefer a run across Hyde Park. The pool is long enough to feel fully toned in the morning or refreshed in-between meetings during the day.

 

The exterior façade is spectacular especially at night when Knightsbridge starts to sparkle. Go for an evening walk for window shopping across the street, Harvey Nichols displays are always worth stopping by.
