will open its third London hotel in the British capital in 2028. Situated on London’s South Bank with dramatic views over St Paul’s Cathedral, Mandarin Oriental Bankside, London is positioned ideally to access both the City of London and the West End theatre and shopping districts, offering a perfect base for leisure and business travellers. The hotel will be part of the larger Bankside Yards development, which serves to reconnect the space between the Tate Modern and Blackfriars Station and is centred around the historic railway arches that run through the heart of the site.
The overall property is being developed by an international real estate consortium including Hotel Properties Limited, Native Land Limited and Amcorp Properties Berhad.
The development will comprise a contemporary standalone building, expected to have 171 guestrooms and 70 branded Residences at Mandarin Oriental. The hotel will offer wellness and fitness facilities tailored for those leading active lifestyles. Within a dedicated space, guests will find a comprehensive Spa at Mandarin Oriental, providing signature wellness therapies and beauty treatments, a 25m lap pool, a spacious fitness centre and invigorating heat and water experiences.
Four distinct culinary outlets, located on the first floor and the 19th floor of the building, with views across the city, will make the hotel a destination for locals and visitors alike. Dedicated event spaces include adaptable function and meeting rooms, with pre-function space, an outdoor terrace and activity space, which will ensure it becomes a sought-after destination for events and social occasions. In line with the brand’s continuous commitment to sustainability, the property will benefit from the wider Bankside Yards development plan to be the UK’s first operationally fossil fuel-free major mixed-use development.
The Residences at Mandarin Oriental will offer a refined living experience in the heart of this vibrant new development, providing residents with access to Mandarin Oriental’s legendary service as well as hotel facilities. The residences will also feature a sky lobby lounge, private roof garden and parking.
“We are excited to announce the development of Mandarin Oriental Bankside, London, which will be a significant addition to the Bankside Yards development and our third Mandarin Oriental property in London,” said James Riley, Group Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group. He adds, “We look forward to working with our partners to create a world-class hotel and branded residences that will undoubtedly become a landmark destination in London’s South Bank.”
Alasdair Nicholls, Chief Executive of Native Land, said: “Bankside Yards is a best-in-class mixed-use destination, devised by Native Land and its partners in the most central riverside location in London. The arrival of a Mandarin Oriental hotel and branded residences will be one of the most important elements in our intention to offer the very best amenities side-by-side with world-class cultural institutions, top-tier businesses and a rich and varied community. Such a respected global hospitality brand will positively impact not only the Bankside Yards development itself but also the wider Bankside and South Bank area.”
