At the foothills of the Andes
Mandarin Oriental, Santiago is one of the most iconic buildings in the city, embarked on an all-encompassing renovation to become the first Mandarin Oriental in South America. Set in the very heart of the city, with beautiful views to the Andes Mountains to the East and San Cristobal Hill to the west, the hotel will be the first real luxury hotel of the city.
Mandarin Oriental, Santiago’s ideal location will let you live amongst locals – it is surrounded by shops, beautiful parks, historic monuments and lots and lots of culture. The Chilean Museum of Pre-Columbian Art is very close by – it holds mummies that pre-date Egyptian mummies by about 2,000 years.
If you’d walk north, across the Mapocho River, you’d enter the bohemian district of Bellavista, where every 19th-century building is painted a different colour and street art covers many walls. Sleepy by day, after nightfall Bellavista’s streets throng with Santiago’s party crowd.
