This year has been an exciting year for Mandarin Oriental. The Hyde Park hotel officially reopened on April 15 in London, Mandarin Oriental Qianmen, Beijing debuted in China, and the palace hotel in Paris unveiled a new apartment that ranks among the biggest in the city. Meanwhile the Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok is preparing to reopen its River Wing after a $90 million renovation. (A “First to Stay” package is being offered for dates starting in November.) And come December, ending the year with a bang, Mandarin Oriental, Santiago will officially open its doors after a rebranding of the Hotel Santiago.

This will be the first Mandarin Oriental hotel in South America. As we’ve previously reported, the Hong Kong-based luxury hospitality group took over management of a 310-room luxury hotel in 2017, renaming it Hotel Santiago. A large-scale restoration and remodeling project was undertaken, to enhance the guest rooms and facilities, while the hotel remained open. (This was done in phases to minimize guest disturbance.) Upon its completion in December, the hotel will begin anew as Mandarin Oriental, Santiago.

Located in the Las Condes neighborhood, Mandarin Oriental, Santiago has an outdoor pool, spa, fitness center, five restaurants and bars, and suites with panoramic vistas of the city and the Andes mountains beyond. The luxury hotel will aim to give visitors a customized experience in Chile—whether it’s skiing or wine tasting in vineyards. In fact, the "Chilean Wine Package" includes an excursion to Santa Rita Winery along with a guided wine pairing with local cheeses and other treats.
