Royal Suite @ Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park Reopens

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 5 July 2010

Following an extensive renovation by RPW Interior Design, the Royal Suite at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park has reopened.

Remaining true to its elegant Victorian architectural heritage but introducing a fresh, contemporary style, the expanded suite of 242 square meters has a distinctly residential feel, and includes a master bedroom and bathroom, separate living room, dining room and kitchen and two adjoining additional bedrooms all of which evoke a feeling of staying in a chic city apartment.

 Raised ceilings and streamlined furnishings encourage a light and spacious atmosphere, complemented by a sweeping balcony of a further 70 square metres that runs the length of the magnificent suite and is large enough to entertain up to 40 guests in the summer months.

A unique partnership with the Halcyon Gallery allows for original artwork to be showcased throughout The Royal Suite. These pieces, including an Issis Sculpture in the living room which mimics the one in Hyde Park, and tribal African sculpture on the terrace, will be exchanged regularly and guests will also have the opportunity to purchase any desired artwork.

The finest quality is reflected in the detailing of the suite. From the ornate Maya Romanoff wallpaper in deep aubergine in the lobby area to the bespoke, double-tiered rock crystal chandelier in the dining room, a feeling of warmth and opulence resides throughout.

 A fully catered breakfast, lunch or dinner in the private dining room can be prepared by staff through the discreet use of the adjoining kitchen. The space is equally equipped to be used as a meeting room with the latest Bang & Olufsen technological sound and audio visual systems, cleverly concealed by antique mirror panels with a crystal rose embossed detailing.

The restored original fireplace in the lounge area is complemented by a reclaimed oak timber floor. Bespoke furniture makers Based Upon have developed a platinum-topped coffee table specially designed for Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, which sits on a hand tufted Veedon Fleece rug in front of a private bar.

The master bedroom includes an extensive walk in wardrobe with separate male and female areas. The female vanity area is framed by Lalique crystal lights, while the pice de rsistance in the master bedroom sits above the bed in the form of a convex mirror, designed to creatively reflect yet distort the park views. A unique collection of original 18th century Chinese paintings illustrating a variety of Chinese junks adorn the remaining wall space.

The master bathroom, with its use of soft pink Rosa Egeo marble and marble mosaic, is fitted with a bespoke shower and steam room made by Schletterer. Guests have a choice of different shower experiences, including Thunder and Tropic Water. The large bath in the centre of the room sits below a fibre optic chandelier to evoke the mood of falling water.

Rates start at GBP 9,500 ++ for the three bedroom suite.
