Mandarin Oriental Mayfair is the first new build in Mayfair for over a decade and brings a modern architectural approach to one of London’s most storied squares.

Inspired by haute couture, every guest room has been imagined as a jewellery box, with a palette that includes a rich emerald green, regal maroon and tranquil turquoise, using fine timbers, marbles, soft fabrics and carpets, bespoke lighting and furniture complemented by metallic finishes in brass, bronze and gold. House of de Gournay hand-painted silk wallpaper is an exquisite focal point of the rooms; its flowering magnolia design – whose leaves have been meticulously considered in relation to the Feng Shui of each room – is a nod to the trees found in Hanover Square, whilst the chinoiserie is a subtle reference to the hotel Group’s oriental heritage.

This best of the East and West can also be found within the hotel’s public spaces – the reception, atrium, Akira Back restaurant, ABar Lounge, 14-seater chef’s table Dosa, private dining rooms and spa – all by Tokyo based design agency Curiosity who have used colour and texture to great effect.

The large sculptural lobby and reception to the spa boasts rare green Ming marble to reflect the green spaces of Hanover Square, Berkeley Square and Green Park, whilst the dining spaces have been inspired by “a walk in the park” and the natural elements of ‘wind’, ‘water’, ‘earth’ and ‘fire’, reflected through carefully choreographed lighting, suspended structures and metallic ceilings.
