The Mandarin Oriental, Singapore was one of the first few hotels that I have stayed in when I relocated back to Singapore a number of years back. Last year, I stayed in a Club Marina Bay Room to check out the newly-refurbished Oriental Club and ever since I have gotten my American Express Platinum Card, I have been thinking about another staycation since the FHR Benefits for this property seem pretty good. Located near the Marina Bay, this luxurious property has just unveiled a brand new dining concept - MO BAR, which occupies the previous space where Axis Bar and Lounge used to sit, is the latest addition to the bar scene in Singapore. Led by Bar Manager Michele Mariotti who was previously as The Berkley and The Savoy in London, the cocktails here are not for the fainthearted and the inventive food will leave you craving for more.
Now that the MO BAR is officially open, Mandarin Oriental, Singapore is bringing back the popular afternoon tea experience with a bi-monthly seasonal menu with views of Singapore. The MO BAR is a relaxing space that is awash in natural daylight during the day and the antique gold geometric patterns inspired by Polynesian tattoos on the ceiling and façade greet guests upon entering.
The Mandarin Oriental does not have an official loyalty program for the longest time and frequent travellers believe that your stay history is somehow tracked by individual PMS systems that are located in each property but forgive me if I am not convinced. Now, the Mandarin Oriental has finally unveiled an official loyalty program which really should be deemed as a membership program for two main reasons - there are no membership tiers and you do not get rewarded (at least not officially) when you stay more.
The Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has just announced that it will manage a one-of-a-kind Mandarin Oriental Qianmen, Beijing which will be located within the Qianmen East Hutong Quarter. This hotel is expected to open in 2018 and it will provide guests with the unique opportunity to experience luxury living in traditional and authentic Beijing surroundings.
The Mandarin Oriental, Singapore officially unveiled the refreshed poolside Italian restaurant, Dolce Vita about a month ago and while I have been to the restaurant on multiple occasions, I have not dined there since the refresh. I was recently invited down to the restaurant to check out the modern new interiors and also to enjoy a carefully-prepared meal by one of the chefs to celebrate this joyous occasion.
The Mandarin Oriental, Singapore is one of the first few luxury hotels that I have first experienced in Singapore - the hotel is one of the best properties in Singapore and it has one of the best swimming pools and club lounges in the Lion City. While I have previously stayed in a Club Marina Bay Room back in 2015, I was interested to check it out once again since The Oriental Club has been recently refurbished. Check out my latest review of the Club Marina Bay Room here at the luxurious Mandarin Oriental, Singapore with an impressive view!
A brand new look for Dolce Vita has just been officially unveiled by the Mandarin Oriental, Singapore. Using a mixed palette of browns and neutral tones, the newly-refreshed Italian restaurant exudes sophistication and a chic vibe. Its subtle grey floor is given a dose of edginess with two stunning black and white tile showpieces that adorn the spacious main dining area.
Melt Café at the Mandarin Oriental, Singapore will be bringing a mouth-watering buffet of authentic Thai cuisine from 06 March 2017 to 19 March 2017. Savour classic dishes like the Thai glass noodle salad with shrimp and lime chilli dressing (yum woon sen) or try the green papaya salad served with crushed peanuts, dried shrimps, long beans, tomatoes, chilli padi and nam pla (som tam) over at the live station.
Celebrate the season for art in style and indulgence at the Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong. The "Warhol in China" photography exhibition will be featured at the hotel and the Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong is offering access to that and two major art fairs with the Warhol Art Package that is offered between 19 March 2017 and 02 April 2017 only.
