The property will be a natural partner to Hotel Santiago, which the group manages and will rebrand as Mandarin Oriental, Santiago following the first phase completion of a renovation later in 2018.
Facilities at the hotel will include an all-day dining venue and bar, as well as a range of flexible meeting facilities, ideal for social and business events. There will also be a boutique Spa at Mandarin Oriental, a fitness centre, a large indoor swimming pool and a dedicated children’s swimming pool.
The project developer is HRV S.A., an affiliate of HCC S.A., which is also the owner of Hotel Santiago.
“We look forward to further extending our brand into South America and to introducing Mandarin Oriental’s renowned standards of luxury to Viña del Mar,” says James Riley, group chief executive of Mandarin Oriental. “This resort will provide a complementary experience for guests at our Santiago hotel.”
Andreas Nauheimer, the owner’s representative of HRV S.A. adds: “We are very pleased with this second strategic alliance with Mandarin Oriental, one of the most important operators of luxury hotels and resorts worldwide.
“We are excited that through this alliance we will also bring Mandarin Oriental’s luxury experience to Viña del Mar. We appreciate Mandarin Oriental’s brand strengths and are certain that this development will help Viña del Mar to continue to grow as a world known tourist destination.”
