Luxury Hotel Spotlight: Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park
With world-class restaurants, an exclusive location and a sumptuous spa, Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London aims to delight. Our US Hotel Contracting Executive Jet Prudencio was lucky enough to experience this amazing property first hand. “In celebration of the Chinese New Year of the Horse, there couldn’t be a better place to be than the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park! I was very lucky to stay there for that occasion & even received a red envelope, red cake and white chocolate horse.”
“The Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park held a festive event on Tuesday, Feb 4th (Chinese NY was actually on Jan 31st) and the whole TAG Hotel Contracting Team was present,” said Jet.
“The property is a historic building with Edwardian-style architecture. It is also in an excellent location surrounded by great restaurants, shops, and walking distance to many of London’s most famous attractions. Aside from overlooking Hyde Park and Knightsbridge, itis within walking distance of Sloane Street, Harrods, Harvey Nichols, and not far from The Royal Albert Hall and South Kensington’s famous museums. Coincidentally Hyde Park even has Mandarin ducks! The accommodations are luxurious and beautifully appointed and the staff was very attentive,” said Jet.
"One of the most important features is the new swimming pool. The stylish stainless steel swimming pool, just opened in Spring 2014, is an indoor heated twin lane pool with two side decks joined by a bridge at one end. For fitness enthusiasts, the 17x6.5m and 1.3m deep pool has a lap timer feature, enabling users to dial in a target speed that they want to swim to and then try to keep up with the pacer light that runs the length of the pool embedded in the floor."
"A big heartfelt thanks goes to Nicola Thoma, Director of Entertainment Sales & Isabella Moroni, Senior Sales Manager Entertainment & Diplomatic Relations," said Jet.
“Overlooking royal parkland, Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London has one of the most prestigious addresses in the city,” said Isabella Moroni, Senior Sales Manager at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park. “Offering award-winning cuisine and a relaxing urban spa, the hotel is renowned for its distinctive charm and unparalleled warmth and service.”
"The biggest news is the opening of our stunning 17 meters stainless steel indoor swimming pool and brand new fitness center which have now opened their doors."
"As one of London's most celebrated hotels, we offer an enticing blend of elegance, style and luxury. Home to two of the city's best restaurants, a stunning spa, beautifully designed accommodation and exquisite function rooms, we offer a fashionable, yet timeless base from which to discover the British capital," said Isabella.
