Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park London, which suffered from a fire in the summer, is to reopen part of its facilities this December.
A blaze broke out in the roof of the newly-renovated, luxury 181-bedroom five-star hotel in Knightsbridge in June this year, damaging small parts of several floors and planting facade on the roof that was thought to have been the cause.
Now it’s been announced that the hotel will reopen its dining facilities and its spa, which has been enlarged and refurbished as part of a wider £80m renovation project.
Two Michelin star restaurant, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, and Bar Boulud, London will open for lunch and dinner service from 4 December.
Bar Boulud, London will relaunch with English born executive chef John Barber, who played a crucial role in opening the restaurant in 2010.
Award winning Dinner by Heston Blumenthal will reopen with chef Ashley Palmer-Watts at the helm showcasing a new selection of dishes.
New York designer Adam D. Tihany, has overseen the redesign of the next-generation Spa at Mandarin Oriental, London.
The new spa features 13 individual treatments rooms, an Oriental Suite with two massage beds and a Rasul water temple, a room designed for traditional Chinese Medicine consultations and treatments, a Bastien Gonzalez Pedi:Mani:Cure Studio and two additional beauty rooms.
Event spaces, The Loggia, The Ballroom, The Asquith and The Balfour, will also reopen.
In spring 2019, the hotel will re-open in its entirety, unveiling all new guest rooms and suites, including two expansive penthouse suites.
