Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London will reopen its doors on Tuesday, 4 December 2018, in time for the holiday season. The hotel will welcome guests into all its public areas, restaurants and event spaces. It will also unveil the renovated and enlarged Spa at Mandarin Oriental, London.
International designer, Joyce Wang transformed the Lobby Lounge and Reception area, using contemporary materials juxtaposed with more traditional finishes, to blend seamlessly with The Rosebery’s nature inspired décor. Upon arrival, guests are greeted with a centrepiece glass chandelier in the shape of a closed flower bud, which is further complemented by an open flower blossom chandelier suspended over the lounge area, where a vibrancy of colour in upholstery and wall coverings animates the space. The reception artwork by Fredrikson Stallard, is an abstraction of the textured and layered bark of the Plane Tree – the signature tree of Hyde Park.
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. His menu will feature dishes with a British contemporary twist on French classics. A Christmas and New Year menu will also be available for those wishing to celebrate the season at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London.
Award winning Dinner by Heston Blumenthal will reopen with Chef Ashley Palmer-Watts at the helm showcasing a new selection of dishes. The restaurant’s iconic meat fruit will make a comeback, featuring a festive twist with a plum jelly rather than the traditional mandarin jelly.
The Rosebery will unveil its festive afternoon tea and welcome this year’s Harrods Christmas Bear, Oliver, for all young Fans of Mandarin Oriental to enjoy this holiday season. Executive Pastry Chef Paul Thieblemont and his talented team have created homemade sweet treats such as Honey Tree Madeleines and Santa’s Lollipop for the occasion.
New York designer Adam D. Tihany, has overseen the redesign of the next-generation Spa at Mandarin Oriental, London.

The Loggia, The Ballroom, The Asquith and The Balfour will provide guests with some of London’s best settings for social events and meetings. Joyce Wang has carefully restored original décor and furnishings to blend with the latest technology. All event spaces offer a rare sense of period elegance. The Loggia features the unique Royal Entrance opening directly onto Hyde Park, alongside a classical airy interior, that is perfect for both smaller meetings and private events. The Ballroom has its own terrace, a sprung dance-floor, 24 carat gilding and floor-to-ceiling windows offering breath-taking views over Hyde Park. Connecting to The Loggia, it provides the ideal setting for weddings, social and corporate events alike. The Mandarin Terrace is available for exclusive hire with The Ballroom. With country garden-like surroundings, the terrace provides a tranquil, outdoor space with views over Hyde Park.
The Carlyle Room, adjacent to The Ballroom, along with The Asquith and Balfour rooms offer secluded spaces for conferences and private functions, incorporating a sense of tradition, calm and comfort.
In spring 2019, the hotel will re-open in its entirety, unveiling all new guest rooms and suites, including two expansive penthouse suites. Most accommodation offers exceptional views of leafy Hyde Park and the London skyline.
