On Monday 29th of October, five of the team were invited to Mandarin Oriental, London one of London’s finest 5-star establishments in the heart of Knightsbridge. These are the times when emc3 get to truly experience venues… so we can give you the best insight into what you can spend your hard earned money on.
We were welcomed into Bar Boulud, a delectable and mid-ranged price restaurant known for its delectable French cuisine in a comfortable setting. There we enjoyed fresh oysters, crudites with aioli, a smorgasbord of the finest meat terrines, hams, cuts and pâtés paired with champagne and wine. Followed by fantastic mains include the reknowned ‘BB Burger’, a wholesome meat patty topped with a hefty slab of foie gras and wine-cured ribs. Throughout our meal our hosts, Therese and Rachel explained the developments Mandarin Oriental and the group have had over the last months.
I shared my experience with Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok, as a half-Thai. Mandarin Oriental is still considered as Bangkok’s premiere hotel but nobody calls it The Mandarin Oriental or Mandarin… in fact it’s called Oriental… or pronounced by Thai’s as “Orient-ten” … a trouble if you’re taking public transportation around the city and want to get back to the hotel… but it’s our experiences such as this that transfigure into key advice to you, our clients.
After our hefty meal, we managed to roll out of the restaurant and see the spa, event spaces including the ballroom overlooking Hyde Park, and some different category bedrooms and suites. Mandarin Oriental is such a welcoming venue for dinner, events and overnight stay. The bedrooms maintain a quintessentially British regal feeling without being outdated or stuffy, which is a welcome compared to the plentiful modern properties available in London.
