Mandarin Oriental Milan

We have a number of new luxury hotels on our radar for 2015, and one that got a lot of attention at ILTM (Cannes) is the new Mandarin Oriental Milan. Slated to open in April 2015, the Mandarin Oriental Milan will occupy four 19th century buildings located near La Scala opera house and the renowned Via della Spiga shopping street.

This past July, Luca Finardi was appointed as General Manager, bringing with him lots of experience in the Italian luxury hotel market. He’s previously worked as General Manager for Royaldemeure Spa Hotels; Hotel Savoy and Villa San Michele in Florence; and Hotel Timeo & Villa Sant’Andrea in Sicily.

Facilities include a cocktail bar, a fine dining restaurant under the helm of Michelin two-starred chef Antonio Guida, a ballroom, and a meeting room. The spa is billed as “the most comprehensive in the city”—complete with six treatment rooms, two couples suites, heat and water facilities, a Thai massage room and an indoor swimming pool.
