Mandarin Oriental has over 50 years of experience in luxury hospitality and has accumulated countless rewards in the industry. With the mission statement “to completely delight and satisfy our guests,” this company offers some of the most sought-after amenities within the community of luxury travelers and home buyers.
Since 1963, Mandarin Oriental has been designing, building, and running some of the most luxurious properties in the world, including hotels, resorts, and private residences. The group started in Asia and then became international in 1987. Currently, this company has properties located in places like Hong Kong, London, San Francisco, Barcelona, and Milan, among other destinations. With such a world-renowned status and experience working in a variety of environments and cultures, it is exciting that plans are in the works for a Mandarin Oriental property in Hawaii.
Some of the perks associated with many of the Mandarin Oriental properties include top-notch dining and spa services. The spas feature techniques from a variety of cultures, with both Eastern and Western influences. So far, these spas have received 13 Forbes “five-star” ratings. Additionally, Mandarin Oriental takes their food very seriously and currently boasts 27 Michelin stars across 17 restaurants within their properties.
Currently, Mandarin Oriental has 36 hotels and 7 residences. These establishments are spread out across 24 countries and offer a combination of the local culture and Asian culture within each building. Mandarin Oriental Honolulu is one of the next major buildings on the company’s list, and it is sure to live up to the standard of luxury of its predecessors!
This development is still in the works, but rumor has it that it will officially open in 2024. Mandarin Oriental Honolulu is set to have 99 private residential homes and 100 hotel rooms. The building in itself will be 36 stories high, offering incredible ocean and city views to both hotel guests and residents.
Residential floors will begin on the 20th floor, with plans for mostly 2- and 3-bedroom condominium units. The building will also include some 4-bedroom units as well. All units are designed with comfort and luxury in mind.
Specifics for the proposed floor plans are subject to change, as the building is still in construction, but current plans feature 2 bed/2 bath units (ranging from 1,526 to 1,914 square feet), 2 bed/2.5 bath units (at 2,654 square feet), 3 bed/3 bath units (at 2,863 square feet), 3 bed/3.5 bath units (from 2,408 to 2,687 square feet), and 4 bed/4.5 bath units (from 4,004 to 6,482 square feet). Some units will range across 2 stories, while others will include all aspects of the layout on a single floor.
The amenities that to be offered at Mandarin Oriental Honolulu are difficult to top, with the conveniences of a restaurant, spa, and other specialty services all within the same building. Residents will surely enjoy use of the concierge services, which will be available 24 hours per day, with services such as booking private flights, organizing excursions for vacations, and scheduling other recreational activities, such as tee times for golf. Additionally, the team of hospitality services is available for valet 24 hours per day.
While these services are impressive, one of the biggest stars of the show is the 9th floor, which features a plethora of amenities reserved specifically for residents. This huge deck features an upscale swimming pool and spa, lined with cute cabanas for relaxation by the water. Bathrooms and showers are right next door and easily available to residents who prefer to rinse off before or after taking a dip in the pool.
Other 9th floor amenities include an outdoor firepit, a club lounge, and a club dining room with a balcony. Feel like staying indoors? Check out the 14-seat movie theatre and bar or the game room, which includes a golf simulator. Golf is a popular sport in Oahu, so this simulator will give you the opportunity to practice your swings before hitting up one of the many golf courses nearby.
My personal favorite perk of the deck is the Peloton studio, available to help you get your cardio in without having to leave home. Mandarin Oriental Honolulu also offers access to personal trainers to help you meet your fitness goals. There’s no need to invest in a separate gym membership when you live right above everything you could need.
Looking to relax? Mandarin Oriental Honolulu will also include a full luxury spa. This group is known for hosting world-class spas, and I expect the one in this building to be highly rated.
Mandarin Oriental Honolulu is located in Oahu, just outside of Waikiki. Residents will love being next to the Ala Moana Center, which offers plenty of options for shopping and dining. The building is also conveniently located next to the Hawaii Convention Center, which could be particularly helpful for your out-of-town guests who may be traveling for work.
Another great perk of the area is its walkability to outdoor activities, as Ala Moana Beach Park is only a 7-minute walk from the building. With close proximity to the beach, shopping centers, and parks, the location of Mandarin Oriental Honolulu also adds to its value as a luxury complex.
Looking to reserve a unit? Prices start at $3.6 million, and potential buyers may visit the residence gallery by invitation only. I recommend joining the Mandarin Oriental Fan Club because it includes awesome benefits, such as $100 in food/beverage or spa credit for each hotel stay, free Internet during your stay, flexibility with check-in and check-out times, etc. Subscribing to these benefits will help keep you in the loop with Mandarin Oriental.
Mandarin Oriental Honolulu is or will be located at 1687 Kapiolani Blvd, Honolulu, HI 96814.
