As The Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group’s flagship property, its doors opened in 1963. At this time, the tallest building in Hong Kong, it promptly elevated to a top ranked hotel revered for service, elegance and cuisine.
Nearly 50 years later, foundations of excellence enviably remain at this waterfront resort. Embarking on 2013 and China’s Year of the Dragon, The Mandarin Oriental intends to pull out all the stops in celebration and invites guests to join them for events all year long...no matter their rock star status.
Home to 10 unique dining adventures of various genres, Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong remains the only hotel in the world to boast three Michelin-starred restaurants. Creating a culinary tribute, Executive Chef Uwe Opocensky offers guests dining at the exclusive Krug Room a taste of the ‘60s with a 21st century twist. Diners can expect updated takes on popular food sensations of the mid-century including “Fruit Loops 2013,” “Julia Child-inspired Beef Bourguignon” and “Baked Alaska.”
Other notable food focused experiences include a Michelin-starred “Food Safari.” Guests will enjoy dishes at each of the awarded restaurants on the property in one evening. There is also a special port dinner during the month of March, 2013 at The Chinnery lounge. Port wine enthusiasts can look forward to a flight of rare varietals, including one from 1963, paired to the outstanding British dishes in which the lounge carries distinction.
And certainly, a stint at the Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong spa relaxes and completes a stay. Awarded five stars by Forbes, the Mandarin Spa claims three-stories of the property and includes a swimming pool, fitness center and full service salon and barber. However, the Mandarin Spa experience remains renowned for their whole-body approach to wellness.
Drawing from Eastern healing philosophies such as traditional Chinese medicine and ancient Ayurveda, guests enjoy holistic practices encompassed by state-of-the-art spa luxury. Starting in February 2013, the Mandarin’s “Golden Celebration Stay” package includes a USD$50 spa credit, with a minimum 2-night stay.
