Joyce Wang, Adam D. Tihany partner for Mandarin Oriental London renovation

Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group’s European flagship Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London is scheduled to complete the second phase of the renovation of the property in the third quarter of 2018.

Joyce Wang was commissioned to oversee the property’s overall design concept, taking inspiration from the building’s Edwardian heritage, the hotel’s park side location, as well as the early 20th Century’s Golden Age of travel. The property has Art Deco-inspired features, including curated artworks and custom-designed furniture.

The second phase of the renovation on the Hyde Park side of the building will include the complete restoration of all guestrooms and suites facing the park. In addition, two new penthouse suites, with private terraces offering views of London’s skyline and the park, will be added.

Upon completion, the spa will have couples’ facilities, specialist consultation areas, and a Mandarin Oriental Spa Studio concept with beauty and grooming treatments for both men and women.

The Loggia, The Ballroom and Dinner by Heston Blumenthal will also undergo refurbishment.

The first phase of the renovation included the launch of 95 new guestrooms and suites in the Knightsbridge wing. In addition, the hotel’s classic entrance, main lobby and reception lounge were reconfigured and redesigned to maximize natural daylight, and the building’s façade was revitalized.
