Mandarin Oriental has announced that its much-anticipated Madrid property will finally open its doors this summer.
Formerly the iconic Hotel Ritz, Madrid, which was designed and built under the supervision of legendary hotelier César Ritz, the property will reopen as Mandarin Oriental Ritz, Madrid following the most extensive restoration in its 110-year history.
The hotel has 153 rooms and suites including a spacious Royal Suite and the Presidential Suite feature magnificent views over the Prado museum.
Chef Quique Dacosta, one of the most celebrated chefs in Spain, has been appointed to design, develop and oversee all culinary operations at the hotel’s five restaurants and bars.
These include a signature Quique Dacosta restaurant, overlooking the famous hotel garden, a Champagne bar and The Palm Court for all day dining and traditional afternoon tea.
The hotel’s new leisure and wellness facilities include a heated indoor swimming pool, a vitality pool, experience showers, a steam room, a contemporary fitness centre and dedicated treatment room.
The ballroom and function spaces, with their large windows facing the Prado Museum are being restored and will accommodate a range of events from meetings to private dinners and parties.
