The Mandarin Oriental group has about 30 hotels worldwide, having a reputation for designing each property in a unique fashion. The Mandarin Oriental Prague property has a long and interesting history. This property was once a 14th-century Monastery, which compliments well Mandarin Orientals focus on wellness provided to their guests.
When traveling, location can make all the difference. One of the many unique highlights of this property is its location to the central "must-see" sites in Prague. Only a 5-minute walk to the famous Charles Bridge and minutes from the city center. The Mandarin Oriental is arguably the best-located property in Prague. Despite its close proximity to Prague's historical sites, the property feels like a private sanctuary tucked in a cobblestoned paradise. Clients that enjoy Mandarin Oriental properties seek to enjoy the balance of what adventure travel offers while retreating to a tranquil oasis that cleanses the soul within. From the moment you pull into their courtyard, you can't help but feel a fresh breath of calmness that overcomes your body.
Hotel Rooms and Accommodations
When you stay in a Mandarin Oriental property, the rooms are always designed with local architecture in mind. Prague is well known for being one of the most beautifully designed and well-preserved cities in Europe. With this in mind, the Mandarin Oriental Prague carefully designed the property with specific characteristics to compliment the building's origins as a 14th-century monastery.
Each room has its own unique qualities and features. Depending on your preference, the Mandarin Oriental has a large menu of options to select from. Some rooms have powerful high ceilings while others have cozy arched or vaulted ceilings. Others have tall windows which shafts of light pour through, spilling over the original parquet flooring polished over hundreds of years.
The Mandarin Oriental is also the only 5-star property that has rooms with outdoor terraces in Prague. Guests can enjoy the peacefulness of a private outdoor terrace that overlooks a garden that was originally used as a site of prayer for the monks that occupied the monastery for nearly a thousand years. All 99 guest rooms including 20 suites are fitted with extremely sophisticated audiovisual equipment, including two LCD high definition televisions, three in every suite, and high-speed internet connections.
Each room features a spacious limestone bathroom. After spending a day walking around the beautiful city of Prague, kick off your shoes decompress by feeling the warmth of the heated floors while you fill-up the large bathtub. With large glass showers featuring state of the art shower heads, including a waterfall shower head, time is of no concern. Designed as your own private spa, each bathroom is equipped with rejuvenating aromatherapy essential oils and balms.
Mandarin Oriental Prague Pool and Spa
When you think of the Mandarin Oriental group you need to think: wellness. Even though throughout the Mandarin Oriental portfolio each property is very different in their own unique ways, the spa experience guests receive at each property is exceptionally consistent. This spa is one of the most beautiful we have ever featured and the photo above displaying the lobby speaks for its self. The Mandarin Oriental Prague Spa is located in a truly unique building being a former Renasiannse chapel.
You may notice the glass floor in the middle of the lobby. This glass floor has an interesting purpose. When the property was being built, the builders stumbled upon the original stonework of the chapel and as a result, construction had to be suspended. Creatively designed, this glass floor hovers over the stonework of the original chapel.
A haven of tranquility within the heart of Prague, the Spa offers an exclusive selection of pampering rituals designed to de-stress, relax and revitalize. Using Mandarin Oriental’s signature collection of luxury spa products developed by Aromatherapy Associates, the Spa tailors treatments to the specific needs of each guest, acknowledging their individuality.
