First glimpses revealed of Mandarin Oriental, Mayfair's subterranean spa retreat

by Megan Whitby | 24 Nov 2023
Mandarin Oriental will open its second London outpost in Mayfair in early January 2024
Complete with 50 guestrooms and 77 private residences, the hotel will be home to a luxury underground spa retreat with interiors by Curiosity
Curiosity has also realised interiors in the hotel's public spaces inspired by nature and a strong sense of place
Mandarin Oriental, Mayfair will be located on Hanover Square – Mayfair’s oldest square – and is being realised by architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners.

Luxury hotel and spa operator Mandarin Oriental’s second London hotel will launch next January with a brand new spa designed as a boutique sister location to its flagship UK spa at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park.

Open to hotel guests, residents and the local community, the underground wellness retreat at Mandarin Oriental Mayfair will welcome its first guests in early 2024.

Facilities will include an indoor heated swimming pool, a sauna, vitality pools, experience showers, steamrooms and a gym.

The spa’s interiors have been designed by Tokyo-based design studio, Curiosity – also the team responsible for designing the hotel’s public spaces.

The vision was to create ‘a hub of nature and art’ and Mandarin Oriental says the result will be a sleek and stylish wellness space that draws on the greenery of Hanover Square.

Spa guests will be welcomed by a striking sculptural green Ming marble reception desk and an earthy palette of natural materials – wood, stone and warm bronze – with candle-like lighting.

London calling

Mandarin Oriental, Mayfair will comprise 50 guestrooms and 77 private residences and feature the first restaurants in the UK by award-winning chef Akira Back.

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.

Realised by architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, the destination will mark Mandarin Oriental’s second destination in the capital.

Plans have already been unveiled for the operator’s third London outpost, Mandarin Oriental Bankside, London.

Due to open in 2028, the property will feature a luxury hotel, spa and branded residences on London's South Bank.
