Hong Kong-based Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group is set to manage a new hotel and residential project in Tel Aviv, Israel. The project is being developed by Seagate Real Estate Ltd., led by luxury residential developer Hertzel Habas and Orit Freedman Weissman, a former Goldman Sachs partner.

In a statement, the company claimed that when the Mandarin Oriental, Tel Aviv opens at the end of 2023, it will be the first luxury hospitality brand in the city.
The property will have 225 guestrooms, most with views of either the Mediterranean or the Tel Aviv skyline. Beyond those rooms, the hotel will also have residences with access to all of the hotel’s services and amenities.

Public spaces will include five restaurants and bars, a ballroom for events, a spa, a fitness center and an “extensive” pool area.

International firm Kohn Pederson Fox, which designed The Landmark Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong, have been appointed as hotel architects, with interiors by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, who were also responsible for the interiors of Mandarin Oriental hotels in Milan and Bodrum. Israeli firm Moshe Tzur Architects has been appointed to design The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, with interiors by Milan based Michael Vincent Uy.
