Mandarin Oriental to Enter South America

Marking its first South American offering, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has announced that it has signed a management contract to oversee and ultimately rebrand Hotel Santiago to become Mandarin Oriental, Santiago.

The 310-key Chilean address will undergo an extensive renovation to the guestrooms and public areas, the first stage of which is scheduled to be completed in August 2018.

The 2.5ha site contains a large free-form outdoor pool and landscaped gardens which provide a resort environment for guests, to be redesigned to reflect local culture, with features inspired by the group's Asian heritage.

The premises currently boast meeting spaces, extensive banqueting areas along with a spa and fitness centre.
