Aspire agents were exclusively invited to the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park in Knightsbridge to enjoy a sumptuous Champagne afternoon tea and to hear about the latest news and developments in the group’s Barcelona hotel and the recently opened Bodrum hotel.

Director of Leisure Sales for the group, Helena Suárez and Leisure Sales Manager for Mandarin Oriental Barcelona, Alberto Jiminéz joined the agents and talked through the new propositions before taking the group through to see the new wellbeing facility including a seventeen metre indoor basement swimming pool that opened back in May in Mandarin Oriental’s very own London hotel.


Having opened the new Turkey Mandarin Oriental only a day prior to the decadent tea, Helena spoke animatedly about the popularity and interest they had experienced already. As with the newer Mandarin Oriental offerings, the Bodrum offering has a boutique feel with its relatively low number of rooms and suites (just 107 in total) and offers accommodation suited for couples and families.
