Panoramic Views, Lush Gardens, and Michelin Stars at the Mandarin Oriental in Barcelona

Panoramic Views, Lush Gardens, and Michelin Stars at the Mandarin Oriental in Barcelona


Barcelona is a fascinating, bustling metropolis on the Mediterranean coast of Spain. However, location is a primary consideration for most tourists to be able to conveniently explore the busy city. The Mandarin Oriental Hotel, in a mid-20th century building, is conveniently located on the chic Passeig de Garcia. Set back from the street, a ramp leads into the sleek interior reception area. The public spaces and 120 rooms designed by Spanish Patricia Urquiola in contemporary style with oriental nuances are a study in refined elegance.

Set right in the heart of the bustling city, it's an ideal place to spend a night (or a few) and be pampered by the excellent service and amenities. The opulent yet minimalistic decor in soothing tones, the stellar spa in the basement, the shopping just out the door, and (best of all) the 360-degree view from the rooftop bar are some of the reasons it's a no brainer for my annual pilgrimage to the food-centric city. For architecture and history buffs, Antonio Gaudi's Casa Battlio is just a short hop across the street while the Plaza Mayor and the bustling Las Ramblas leading into the Gothic quarter and the La Boqueria Market are all within walking distance. When exhausted guests head back to the hotel, what could be more welcome than bottle of cold water that the street level staff are so prompt to offer. Such touches are typical of the hospitality of the Mandarin Oriental brand.

The cruise season usually brings in tourists before or after embarking on the mega cruise ships at the Port de Barcelona. For such short visits, the concierge seamlessly organizes and arranges for city tours while the most-visited attractions like the Sagrada Familia church or Gaudi's Park Guell are just a short taxi ride away.

As a foodaholic, my trips to Barcelona (with its internationally recognized restaurants, bars, and patisseries) are all about dining. Other temples of haute cuisine outside the city are ideal for a day trip by train or taxi if the concierges can wangle an elusive reservation. Some of them require a few months of preplanning, but if not there are other options. The hotel itself has a well-curated selection of restaurants within its premises, and in-house guests can be assured of a reservation, especially at the two Michelin-starred MOments by chef Carme Ruscalleda. The acclaimed Spanish chef holds seven Michelin stars across her three restaurants in Barcelona and Tokyo. This chic restaurant, with its soothing colors, is helmed by her son, chef Raul Balam Ruscalleda and has become one of the main attractions of the hotel for food lovers. The tasting menu, appropriately named “The Tour,” presents guests with a personalized passport for their journey of international flavors.

Since 2016 acclaimed Peruvian chef Gastón Acurio has presented his Latin American flavors at Terrat bar on the rooftop in the evening and al fresco dining spot Mimosa Garden during the day, where the smell of the grill wafts around the secluded gardens. The landscaped gardens are a secluded oasis surrounded by tall buildings, and are unbelievably serene just a few hundred meters off the busy Passeig de Garcia. The fashionable avenue is comparable to Champs-Elysees in Paris or Fifth Avenue in New York and is lined with stores representing every major luxury brand.

Spanish chef Angel Leon, famous for his avant-garde seafood at two Michelin starred Aponiente at the Cadiz , Spain Mandarin Oriental property, showcases his signature dishes at BistrEau. The restaurant is in the main dining room, which does double duty with a spectacular breakfast spread in the mornings (visions of plates of Serrano ham), and transforms at night into the candle-lit snazzy restaurant with dishes like seafood risotto complemented by wines from Jerez.

The culinary hot spot is also home to the glamorous Bankers Bar, where the glamorati of the city flock to, especially when the seasonal Terrat is not operational. A stay at the hotel can coincide with special events like PDT (Please Don't Tell), a pop up bar from New York serving haute cuisine hot dogs created by top chefs such as Albert Adria, Joan Roca, Carme Ruscalleda, Gaston Acurio, and Angel Leon. Guests then easily earn bragging rights to have tasted the cuisine of these top Spanish and international chefs!

This unique property (where from some rooms the balcony opens to vistas of the lavender-scented gardens for a quiet moment sipping green tea) is my favorite home away from home.


Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park London

London, the city of the Queen, Big Ben and the true essence of Great Britain, attracts more than 17 million visitors annually. Founded over 2,000 years ago by the Romans, it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.

This cosmopolitan capital , home to 50 different nationalities, is a modern, dynamic and flourishing metropolis as well as an internationally important financial center.

As a capital of the arts and fashion , on the same level as Paris or New York, the city has a great many museums and galleries including the British Museum and the National Gallery, as well as numerous world famous monuments.

Knightsbridge , in the City of Westminster district, is considered to be one of London’s most luxurious quarters. It’s here that Harrod’s, the legendary temple of luxury is located. The quarter runs along the south side of the famous Hyde Park , one of the largest city parks in the world and the largest royal park in London. Stretching over 142 hectares, it contains no less than 4,000 trees and represents a huge green fresh air space in the heart of the city.

A mythical palace

On the edge of Hyde Park, just a few steps from London’s most famous shops , in the trendy Knightsbridge quarter, the Mandarin Oriental is located in a magnificent Victorian building which is a perfect reflection of the quarter.

Opened a century ago, this five star palace, originally a gentlemen’ s club, has, over a long period of time, established itself as one of the most high classed addresses in London. Renovated in 2000, the Mandarin Oriental is an attractive and successful association of very British elegance , style and luxury with subtle references to the hotel group’s Asian origins.

In the immense and luxurious hall, the omnipresent marble, uniformed butlers and soft lighting create a sophisticated and filtered atmosphere.

The large and refined 173 rooms and suites are furnished and decorated in the purest Victorian style . Different, depending on the category, they all have cream colored walls, thick, deep carpeting and noble materials. The sumptuous silk curtains, dark wood furniture, leather covered desks and works of art depicting scenes from daily life in England, diffuse a warm and traditional atmosphere. The lovely orchid which adorns each room reflects both the group’s oriental culture and the English passion for flowers. Some of the rooms open onto the courtyard, others onto Knightsbridge and still others over the magnificence of Hyde Park.

The Royal Suite is the most luxurious of the hotel’s 25 suites. Its cream, gold and pale blue tones, its crystal Lalique lamps and its 18 century Chinese paintings combine comfort and refinement in total harmony with the Victorian architecture. A unique partnership with the Halcyon Gallery enables the hotel to display original works of art in the suite including a Renoir and a Warhol.

The huge terrace, which runs along the entire length of the suite , is the ideal spot to relax and enjoy the magnificent panoramic view of Hyde Park.

The spa of this mythical palace is considered to be the best in the city. Guests can take advantage of the swimming pool, the hammam and the samarium, a variation of the sauna without the dry heat, or try a chromotherapy treatment.

I n the area of gastronomy, the Mandarin Oriental lives up to its reputation. One of the two restaurants, the Boulud Bar, is a combination wine bar, brasserie and classic restaurant with an elegant open kitchen, arched ceilings and traditional bistro materials such as wood, leather, cork and zinc. French Chef Daniel Boulud proposes the same cuisine for which he is famous in New York. The Dinner, decorated by the celebrated designer, Adam Tihany, consists of traditional materials like wood, leather and iron used in a contemporary style. The cuisine consists of updated versions of traditional British recipes prepared in modern style by the starred Chef, Heston Blumenthal.

And for those who would rather not leave this enchanting hotel, the Mandarin bar is the ideal place to end the evening, with a cocktail in hand and in the company of all of London’s high society.

Built in 1889, the building, once a « Gentlemen’s club », received the royal family regularly. It was in the magnificently restored ballroom that Queen Elizabeth II learned to dance.

Opened a century ago, this five star palace, originally a gentlemen’ s club, has, over a long period of time, established itself as one of the most high classed addresses in London. Renovated in 2000, the Mandarin Oriental is an attractive and successful association of very British elegance , style and luxury with subtle references to the hotel group’s Asian origins.

In the immense and luxurious hall, the omnipresent marble, uniformed butlers and soft lighting create a sophisticated and filtered atmosphere.

The large and refined 173 rooms and suites are furnished and decorated in the purest Victorian style . Different, depending on the category, they all have cream colored walls, thick, deep carpeting and noble materials. The sumptuous silk curtains, dark wood furniture, leather covered desks and works of art depicting scenes from daily life in England, diffuse a warm and traditional atmosphere. The lovely orchid which adorns each room reflects both the group’s oriental culture and the English passion for flowers. Some of the rooms open onto the courtyard, others onto Knightsbridge and still others over the magnificence of Hyde Park.

The Royal Suite is the most luxurious of the hotel’s 25 suites. Its cream, gold and pale blue tones, its crystal Lalique lamps and its 18 century Chinese paintings combine comfort and refinement in total harmony with the Victorian architecture. A unique partnership with the Halcyon Gallery enables the hotel to display original works of art in the suite including a Renoir and a Warhol.

The huge terrace, which runs along the entire length of the suite , is the ideal spot to relax and enjoy the magnificent panoramic view of Hyde Park.

The spa of this mythical palace is considered to be the best in the city. Guests can take advantage of the swimming pool, the hammam and the samarium, a variation of the sauna without the dry heat, or try a chromotherapy treatment.

I n the area of gastronomy, the Mandarin Oriental lives up to its reputation. One of the two restaurants, the Boulud Bar, is a combination wine bar, brasserie and classic restaurant with an elegant open kitchen, arched ceilings and traditional bistro materials such as wood, leather, cork and zinc. French Chef Daniel Boulud proposes the same cuisine for which he is famous in New York. The Dinner, decorated by the celebrated designer, Adam Tihany, consists of traditional materials like wood, leather and iron used in a contemporary style. The cuisine consists of updated versions of traditional British recipes prepared in modern style by the starred Chef, Heston Blumenthal.

And for those who would rather not leave this enchanting hotel, the Mandarin bar is the ideal place to end the evening, with a cocktail in hand and in the company of all of London’s high society.

Built in 1889, the building, once a « Gentlemen’s club », received the royal family regularly. It was in the magnificently restored ballroom that Queen Elizabeth II learned to dance.
