Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group (MOHG) is gearing up to open a brand new property in London’s upmarket area of Mayfair in Q4 of 2022.

Mandarin Oriental Mayfair will be located on Hanover Square – Mayfair’s oldest square – and is being realised by architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners.

The 50-room destination will open as the sister property to the existing Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park and feature 78 private residences.

In classic MOHG fashion, the hotel will be completed with a new spa – designed to offer a wellness sanctuary in the city, open to guests, residents and the local community.

The design brief for the spa is focused on creating a space dedicated to renewal and recalibration. Facilities will include an indoor swimming pool, sauna, vitality pool and relaxation room.

“We’re incredibly excited to open a MOHG hotel in the heart of such an iconic location,” says Susanne Hatje who joins as GM direct from Mandarin Oriental, New York.

“Mayfair has such a rich history and pedigree within luxury, fashion and art and is continually evolving. This is a wonderful parallel for our new property, which will introduce delightful touches for which MOHG is loved, but in a more intimate and informal setting.

“We feel that our warm, club-like atmosphere, which flows throughout the hotel, is set to make Mandarin Oriental Mayfair a new destination of choice in the area.”

A strong sense of place has inspired the interior design of the hotel’s public spaces, created by Tokyo based studio Curiosity which has based its concept on ‘a hub of nature and art’.

As a homage to the hotel’s cultural and creative neighbours, artworks by local British artists feature throughout the hotel with one-off furniture pieces curated by Curiosity’s founder, Gwenael Nicolas.

The hotel’s guestrooms and suites have been designed by UK-based Studio Indigo, embracing a British style influenced by the hotel’s iconic location in the heart of London, while encompassing touches reflective of the Group’s oriental heritage.


With regards to dining experiences, Mandarin Oriental Mayfair will house the first namesake Akira Back restaurant in the UK from Michelin Star award-winning Chef Akira Back, as well as his ABar Lounge concept.
