The jewel box inside Mandarin Oriental Mayfair

Mandarin Oriental has opened the group’s second property in London  – the  Mandarin Oriental Mayfair on historic Hanover Square which has 50 guestrooms and suites, 77 private residences, and a spa. 

British-based Studio Indigo has blended Mandarin Oriental’s Asian heritage with locally inspired elements. Every guest room has been imagined as a jewellery box, with a palette that includes emerald green, maroon and turquoise, using fine timbers, marbles, soft fabrics and carpets, bespoke lighting and furniture complemented by metallic finishes in brass, bronze and gold.

House of de Gournay hand-painted silk wallpaper is a focal point of the rooms; its flowering magnolia design – whose leaves have been meticulously considered in relation to the Feng Shui of each room  –  is a nod to the trees found in Hanover Square, whilst the chinoiserie is a subtle reference to the hotel group’s oriental heritage.

The exterior is also noteworthy. architectural approach to one of London’s most storied squares. Architects RSHP came up with an elegant contemporary townscape façade, clad with burnt red brick ‘baguettes’ (the longest in the UK), inspired by the Georgian terraces that surround the hotel.

The large sculptural lobby and reception to the spa boasts rare green Ming marble to reflect the green spaces of Hanover Square, Berkeley Square and Green Park.

The Spa at Mandarin Oriental Mayfair brings some dynamic firsts to the UK wellness scene. These include new to London binaural biohacking treatments, offering ‘stress release’, ‘mindfulness’, ‘awaken’ and ‘power nap’ as quick fix 22-minute experiences. The c spa menu also features treatments by results-driven ‘Swiss Perfection’; the scientific ‘Seed to Skin Tuscany’ and CBD-infused ‘OTO’.

Two experiences have been inspired by the local surroundings, a four-handed ‘Tranquillity of Mayfair’ massage therapy and a signature ‘Elegance of Mayfair’ facial. The spa also offers a 25-metre swimming pool, sauna, vitality pools and experience showers, a state-of-the-art gym, personal training, reformer Pilates, nutritional consultations, physiotherapy and NormaTec massage technology used by elite athletes.
