Mandarin Oriental expands portfolio with takeover of Chile hotel

Mandarin Oriental SantiagoLuxury hotel chain Mandarin Oriental has expanded its property collection with the acquisition of its first five-star establishment in South America. The Hong Kong headquartered group has announced it has taken over the reins at the Grand Hyatt Santiago in Chile’s capital city.

The hotel’s association with Grand Hyatt ended on the 31 July and it is now operated under the Mandarin Oriental umbrella. A statement released by the hotelier says extensive renovations and improvements will be carried out to ensure the hotel reflects the elegant image of the Mandarin Oriental marque.

The statement explained that the first stage of the upgrade should be completed in this fiscal quarter. The hotel will be open while renovations are carried out and guests are able to book rooms and suites via the Mandarin Oriental website or affiliated agencies.

The Hotel Santiago enjoys a prime location in the Las Condes area of the city. Guests will find they have an enticing choice of restaurants, shops and entertainment venues right on their doorstep. The Ralli Museum, the swish Parque Arauco Mall and Los Leones Golf Club and Course are all more or less within walking range.

The Mandarin Oriental Santiago boasts an assortment of 310 nicely appointed suites and rooms. The hotel stands in its own landscaped grounds and offers guest amenities which include a good-sized swimming pool, a spa, a fitness centre and a choice of five different dining outlets and bars. The building is positioned so that it gives panoramic views of the Andes Mountains.
