London's Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park will reopen in April 2019.

The five-star Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park hotel in London has been readied for relaunch after a fire hit the structure in June 2018, with its spas, restaurants, and event spaces reopened in December 2018. 

Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park caught fire after it was put through a multi-million dollar restoration in June 2018, which operator Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group said was the "most extensive" exercise of its kind carried out for the 117-year-old hotel.

Set to reopen in April 2019, the 181-key hotel has been redesigned by Joyce Wang, who oversaw the interiors of all guest rooms, suites, and penthouses, marking her first UK commission.

Commenting on the hotel’s reopening, Amanda Hyndman, general manager and area vice president of operations at Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, said: “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."

Mandarin Oriental will open its first Oman property in Muscat in 2021. Developed by Eagle Hills Muscat – a partnership between the UAE’s Eagle Hills Abu Dhabi and Oman’s Izz International – the hotel will feature 150 guestrooms and suites along with five food and beverage outlets. HSSG is working as Mandarin Oriental Muscat's construction contractor.

The Mandarin Oriental Jumeirah hotel opened in Dubai on 18 February, 2019. The 256-key property was developed with Dubai real estate giant, Wasl Properties.
