Set to be known as the Mandarin Oriental Mayfair, London, the hotel is expected to open in 2021 and is part of a development to be known as Hanover Bond.
The new hotel will be an “intimate, boutique property”, with just 50 guestrooms and suites and will be a sister hotel to the brand’s landmark London hotel on Hyde Park, which itself is in the throes of a major renovation.
Alongside Mandarin Oriental Mayfair will be 80 new apartments within The Residences at Mandarin Oriental development, set to be “some of the most exclusive private homes in the city”.
The whole project is being developed by Clivedale London and designed by architects, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. It will feature a fine-dining restaurant, a lobby lounge, bar, roof terrace with bar, spa and pool.
The Hanover Bond project is between Bond Street and Regent Street and prime location for the new Bond Street Cross Rail station.
Located on Hanover Square, that is due to open in 2018 offering access to super-fast rail connections across London, with Heathrow airport accessible in under 30 minutes.
“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,” said James Riley, group chief executive of Mandarin Oriental. “Operating two complementary hotels in a single destination is something that the group has already done successfully in Hong Kong.”
Clivedale London is an independent, Mayfair-based developer with a portfolio valued in excess of £1.1 billion.
“Together we are setting a new precedent for architecture, design and lifestyle in a world-class location, and we look forward to bringing the best of both worlds to our discerning clientele,” said Clivedale London’s chief executive officer, Tarun Tyagi.
Mandarin now operates 31 hotels and eight residences in 21 countries and territories.
The second hotel for the group in the capital is the latest in a recent run of high-end developments, with a Peninsula and Raffles also coming to the city, along with a second hotel for Rosewood in London. Four Seasons is also developing its first standalone residential project in the city, while Waldorf Astoria was recently announced as the management partner for a hotel within the city’s historic Admiralty Arch.
