London’s Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park is a luxury hotel in London’s exclusive Knightsbridge neighborhood overlooking Hyde Park. Widely renowned as not only one of London’s though also the world’s most celebrated hotels, it features world-class accommodations, extremely knowledgeable concierge staff, and extraordinary dining.
Hidden from view behind and underneath the classic façade of the establishment and following an extensive excavation plus renovation lies the new Fitness center and swimming pool. The facilities have a cutting edge design blending chic materials into a subtly powerful visualization of what an ideal luxury gym and swimming pool should look like. To see it gives you the feeling that the facility is to fitness what a power-breakfast haunt is to business moguls.
The underground heated twin lane pool has a lap timer feature that will delight fitness enthusiasts. This feature enables swimmers to select a target speed that they wish to swim to and then try to keep up with the pacer light that runs the length of the pool embedded along the bottom of the pool.
The twenty four hours a day gym is equipped with the latest fitness and entertainment technology by Technogym including treadmills, cross trainers, bicycles and a rowing machine. However, one of the key criteria for a stand-out exercise facility is the quality of the available instruction. Ruben Tabares has brought a hand-picked team of professionals who have an impressive record using unorthodox techniques to achieve fast results to enable people achieve their fitness goals.
So alongside dining by Daniel Boulud and Heston Blumenthal the London Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park has another five star string to its bow and yet another reason to not put off a stay in the near future. The Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park promises a stay that will delight and refresh visitors who seek the ultimate in comfortable and elegant accommodations in the heart of London.
