Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has reopened the city’s most luxurious hotel Mandarin Oriental Ritz, Madrid. The property’s prestigious location, in the heart of Madrid’s commercial and cultural district and close to the city’s famed El Retiro Park, has ensured that The Ritz has always been an important part of society in Spain’s capital.
This much-anticipated reopening follows the most ambitious and extensive restoration in the iconic property’s 110-year history. Originally designed and built under the supervision of legendary hotelier César Ritz, the hotel first opened its doors in 1910. Over the last three years, it has been restored while maintaining the unique Belle Époque character of the original building.
The historic restoration was led by Spanish architect Rafael de La-Hoz. French designers, Gilles & Boissier have overseen the interiors, increasing the property’s appeal to local and international guests alike. Each of the 153 luxuriously appointed rooms, including 53 suites, now features a chic and contemporary residential style.
The hotel is home to five dining concepts overseen by three Michelin-starred Chef Quique Dacosta. These comprise Deessa, with a menu celebrating locally-sourced produce; Palm Court, serving a classic yet contemporary menu under a spectacular central glass canopy; Champagne Bar, which presents tailored pairings for guests; Pictura, with a curated avant-garde menu of cocktails; and El Jardín del Ritz, Madrid’s favorite al fresco setting.
For the first time in its history, Mandarin Oriental Ritz, Madrid will offer wellness experiences. The intimate spa retreat will feature Mandarin Oriental’s award-winning wellness expertise in partnership with The Beauty Concept, one of Spain’s leading wellness experts. The wellness facilities include a heated indoor swimming pool, a vitality pool, experience showers, a steam room, and a contemporary fitness center.
To celebrate the occasion, an enticing Opening Offer is available until 31 August 2021 which includes an exclusive guided city tour, a generous dining credit, and an original Ritz gift.
