NEW DESIGN AND PRECIOUS ART FOR ROOMS AND SUITES IN THE MANDARIN ORIENTAL, MUNICH
Munich, July 5, 2007 – After a redesign period of only three months, the 48 guest rooms, 25 suites and hotel corridors of Mandarin Oriental, Munich now shine in new splendor. Some 7.5 million euros were invested in refurbishing the 2nd – 7th floor as well as for the renewal of the outer facade of the building.
The highlights of the refurbishment are the exclusive Mandarin Suite (325 m2) and the Oriental Suite (70 m2), with a striking, contemporary Asian design that makes use of premium materials and technical refinements. The new conservatories of the two suites are particularly outstanding, which were created by incorporating the patios. With glass sliding doors they provide an airy, light-flooded atmosphere and a unique view of the city’s landmarks. Asian objets d’art thousands of years old and worth 3.8 million euros turn the suites into a private museum.
The guest rooms have also been given an Asian touch with exotic plants, valuable works of art from the Far East and Oriental patterns reflecting the heritage of the luxury hotel group. A timeless and discreet interplay between East and West has also been created with the cherrywood furniture in style of the neo-Biedermeier period, including desks, chests of drawers and tables. State-of-the-art technology, such as Bang & Olufsen flatscreen televisions with over 600 channels, reflects the emphasis on exclusive comfort.
Lars Wagner, General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Munich, comments the refurbishment: “Very individualized and highly professional service combined with innovative technology, an exclusive ambience and the very highest quality materials provide our guests with an unforgettable, harmonious stay including all modern conveniences – a perfect symbiosis of service and contemporary hospitality.”
Architect Ralf Clausen of CM Design explains: “Our aim is to combine a contemporary and high-quality design with borrowing of art deco forms to create a sense of well-being amid genuine works of art, which are thousands of years old.”
