Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has opened its first city hotel in China, the Mandarin Oriental Guangzhou.

Located above TaiKoo Hui, a prestigious 358,000-square metre, mixed-use development comprising luxury shopping, grade-A office space and an impressive cultural centre, Mandarin Oriental Guangzhou’s standard guest rooms are the largest in the city.

Each of the 233 spacious guestrooms, 30 suites and 24 serviced apartments reflect the Group’s distinctive elegance and style. Renowned interior designer, Tony Chi, has fused traditional elements of the orient with the modern identity of today’s China.

Mandarin Oriental Guangzhou brings an inspired mix of traditional Chinese and Western classic dining with some modern flourishes, designed to elevate the city’s restaurant scene. Among the diverse choices is Jiang by Chef Fei, one of China’s most notable chefs known for his creative flair in Cantonese dining; a classic grill restaurant, Ebony; a tea lounge, The Taikoo Lounge; The Mandarin Cake Shop; and an exclusive cocktail destination, The Loft.

The Spa at Mandarin Oriental Guangzhou offers city dwellers and visitors a rare opportunity for peace and tranquility. The Spa features nine private treatment rooms, including two couple’s suites and a VIP spa suite, as well as extensive heat and water facilities.

Top-tier meetings and function facilities are spacious and equipped with the latest technology, and the hotel’s expansive 750 square metre ballroom is set to become the city’s premier celebration and events destination.
