The Magic Behind Mandarin Oriental


Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group is the award winning owner and operator of some of the most luxurious hotels, resorts and residences located in prime destinations around the world.

Increasingly recognized for creating some of the world’s most sought-after properties, the Group provides 21st century luxury with oriental charm. Above all, Mandarin Oriental is renowned for creating unique hotels through distinctive design and a strong sense of place, luxury hotels right for their time and place, like Mandarin Oriental Miami.

Surrounded by breathtaking views of the water and the city, Mandarin Oriental, Miami brings the essence of five-star luxury to Brickell Key. With a private infinity pool and an exotic day spa, the hotel offers a taste of Asian serenity in a Miami that is always bathed in sunshine.

A space of sophistication, discreet luxury and this relaxed that chic Miami touch, Mandarin Oriental is located in an isolated environment of a private island, but at the same time is within walking distance of downtown from the city of Brickell.

For more than 50 years, Mandarin Oriental has been established as a leader in luxury hospitality, and has a rich and proud history. Their mission, ‘to delight our guests each and every day’ began with the opening of their flagship property, The Mandarin, in 1963 in Hong Kong. The hotel, which was the tallest building on the island when it opened, soon built up an enviable reputation for service excellence, and instantly became a historic landmark – a status it still holds today.

In 1974 The Oriental in Bangkok, which was already acknowledged as one of the world's most legendary hotels was partially acquired by the Group, giving the company two "flagship" hotels whose names represented the very best in hospitality. As a consequence, the two famous hotels joined to create the brand Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group under the renowned fan logo.

Over the next twenty years the Group opened further Mandarin Oriental hotels in Asia, and became firmly established as one of the most elegant and luxurious hotel groups, renowned for offering comfortable and well-appointed accommodation, exceptional facilities and some of the finest restaurants and bars in the region. This was underpinned by impeccable service inspired by their Asian heritage, which made Mandarin Oriental the hotels of choice for local residents and luxury travellers alike.

In the bustling city of Miami, the heart of luxury lifestyle, fashion, and nightlife of the United Stated, Mandarin Oriental adds, with a flourish, another top-notch destination for those who seek to indulge in magnificent service.

The hotel chain’s expansion began in earnest in 2000 with the purchase of the prestigious Rafael Group of hotels and the opening of this stylish urban resort in Miami. This is when they began a global implementation of holistic spa concepts. Today, Mandarin Oriental’s extensive collection of holistic spas, which combine Asian and western treatment techniques, achieve numerous individual awards. It is the only luxury hotel group to have 10 Forbes ‘Five-Star’ spas across a global portfolio – more than any other hotel group in the world.
