Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has signed to manage a new hotel and branded residence property currently under development in Beirut. The project, scheduled to open in 2018, will extend the group’s presence in the Middle East market.
“This new development represents another significant step for Mandarin Oriental in leveraging our brand further across the Middle East region,” said Edouard Ettedgui, group chief executive of Mandarin Oriental.
Mandarin Oriental Beirut will be housed within two adjacent buildings located in Beirut’s central district at the heart of Lebanon’s capital. The south tower will consists of 280 hotel guestrooms and suites, along with 25 serviced apartments. Meanwhile, the north tower will feature 103 Residences at Mandarin Oriental.
Work on the development is currently underway, with Singapore-based designers Kerry Hill assuming the responsibility of architects.
Guests staying at the hotel, serviced apartments, or Residences at Mandarin Oriental will have access to all the facilities on offer. This includes an all-day dining restaurant and bar, lobby lounge and club lounge spread across the lower levels of the two towers, as well as a fine dining restaurant that will be situated across the top of both towers.
Meeting facilities will include a 300-seat grand ballroom, a 270-seat junior ballroom, and several adaptable conference rooms.
As expected, the brand’s signature Spa at Mandarin Oriental concept will be offered at the property, together with a fitness centre and indoor pool. An additional outdoor pool will be located at the top of the building.
