The luxury Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park in London has re-opened following a £100 million revamp interrupted by a fire last summer.

The blaze in June, believed to have been as a result of welding work, was confined to the west courtyard but led to the evacuation of the five-star hotel and a six-month closure.

Completion of the two-year restoration project sees new guest rooms and suites, including two new penthouse suites.

The most extensive refurbishment in the property’s 117-year history includes all 181 bedrooms and 40 suites, the spa, restaurants, bars and public areas.

A special promotion running until June 30 sees rates start at £659 including breakfast, a bottle of Champagne plus a daily credit leading in at £75 for use in the spa or bars.

General manager and area operations vice president, Amanda Hyndman, said: “Mandarin Oriental is enormously proud of the heritage of this historic hotel.

“The scope and intricate detail of this momentous renovation is designed to ensure this iconic London establishment is recognised as one of the finest hotels in the world.

“We look forward to welcoming our guests with kind and intuitive service that is truly British but reflective of our Oriental heritage.”
