Built to impress with spectacular design and world class service, the Mandarin Oriental Taipei rates as one of Asia's top hotels & a grand addition to Taipei's growing collection of true 5-star hotel options.
Located on Dunhua North Road, a major north-south arterial in Taipei, Taiwan connecting Songshan Airport with downtown Taipei, the Mandarin Oriental Taipei casts an imposing figure over the large landscaped medians, manicured trees and surrounding commercial office district.
The Mandarin Oriental Taipei is also very conveniently located less than 5 minutes walk from the In Motion Asia Office. With our fast growing Event Destination Services that include hotel bookings, airport transfers, incentive travel, team building and other requirements, the IMA team was keen to explore first-hand what one of the world's premier luxury hotels, resorts and residences in Asia, Europe and the Americas had bought to Taipei.
With IMA's MICE & Incentive Travel Manager, Ms. Nancy Lin, announcing her approaching birthday it was the perfect opportunity to combine the birthday celebrations at the Mandarin's French Cafe Un Deux Trois together with a tour of the Mandarin Oriental Taipei.
From the outside the Mandarin Oriental Taipei presents a somewhat unassuming appearance with the duller colors common in classical European architecture being lost in the colorful tree lined Dunhua North Road. Yet upon closer inspection the eye starts to reveal the marble columns, cut stone, arches, pediments and stucco-dressed walls that allude to something marvellous hidden inside.
The tour commences in the lobby that dazzles with its high chairs, crystal chandeliers and polished floors setting a theme of excellence that runs throughout the hotel.
Located on our ground floor, adjacent to the lobby, The Jade Lounge offers elegant all-day dining and a warm relaxing interior. Enjoying a cappuccino we met with the Mandarin Oriental's General Manager, Director of Events Management & Sales Manager who all welcomed us to the hotel, interested to learn more about our Travel Agency & Team Building services that could be offered to Mandarin Oriental clients.
From the lobby area we were guided to the hotels meeting and events wing and a collection of 13 function rooms plus pre function area including:
The Mandarin Oriental Taipei took 8 years to construct and this is clearly evident in the attention to detail and choice of spaces that cater to all needs from the the grand expanse of the ballroom to the tranquillity of the grand saloon and the unique residential-style oriental multi-event venues.
The Grand Ballroom in particular dazzled and delivered a wonderful sight as notions of future events run through the minds of the IMA team and the opportunity to deliver spectacular events in such a wonderful space.
With 256 guest rooms and 47 suites, and an advertised rack rate starting from NTD$14,800 for a standard deluxe room, the Mandarin Oriental is one of Taiwan's most expensive and upscale hotels.
Aimed at high end leisure travelers and smaller boutique groups the Mandarin Oriental Taipei primarily attracts Chinese & Japanese guests with clients from Southeast Asia targeted as the strongest growth market long run.
And impress the rooms do, with melding elements of contemporary luxury and classic oriental style from the Deluxe rooms all the way up to the Presidential Suite that oozes opulent luxury at its best.
After a quick tour of the outdoor swimming pool and the very inviting looking Spa facilities it was time for our birthday lunch celebration at the Cafe Un Deux Trois and a truly wonderful menu topped off in style with a complimentary birthday cake!
We would like to thank all the wonderful staff & management team at the Mandarin Oriental Taipei for a wonderful experience & tour.
