Mandarin Oriental announces new project in Vi–a Del Mar, Chile

Mandarin Oriental, Vi–a del Mar

The property will be a natural partner to Hotel Santiago, which the Group manages and will rebrand as Mandarin Oriental, Santiago following the first phase completion of a renovation later in 2018.

Mandarin Oriental, Vi–a del Mar is scheduled to open in 2020 with 195 guestrooms and suites. The property will have a prime oceanfront position with direct beach access and proximity to the city’s main shopping destination.

Facilities at the hotel will include an all-day dining venue and bar, as well as a range of flexible meeting facilities, ideal for social and business events. There will also be a boutique Spa at Mandarin Oriental, a fitness centre, a large indoor swimming pool and a dedicated children’s swimming pool.

The project developer is HRV S.A., an affiliate of HCC S.A., which is also the owner of Hotel Santiago.

James Riley, Group Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental said,
