Ennismore, the London-based hospitality company, is expanding the global presence of its brand, Mondrian, this year. Mondrian is on track to debut properties in Ibiza, Singapore, Bordeaux and Hong Kong.
The brand has further plans for 2024 and beyond with a robust pipeline of new openings, each consisting of a hotel and branded residential units in Australia’s Gold Coast, Riyadh, Abu Dhabi and Tulum. These new properties will join the existing collection of eight Mondrian hotels in Miami, Los Angeles, New York, London, Seoul, Doha, Mexico City and Cannes.
“From the moment the doors at Mondrian Los Angeles opened in the late 90s, guests connected with an electric energy and experience that was entirely new to hospitality. And once again it’s an exciting time for the Mondrian brand as it expands into new regions — the Middle East and Asia Pacific in particular — offering residences alongside hotels in several of the new locations. Guests can expect the same core values synonymous with Mondrian at every destination, with a flair for the unexpected that Mondrian aficionados know and love,” said Chadi Farhat, brand COO for Mondrian at Ennismore.
December 2022 saw the opening of Mondrian Mexico City Condesa, the first Mondrian property in Latin America. The hotel was the product of a new venture between Mondrian and Grupo Morano.
The new luxury lifestyle hotel comprises 183 rooms (including two penthouse suites and 16 luxury suites), meeting and event facilities and four culinary concepts. The design was led by architect Jose Luis Benlliure.
Mondrian Cannes, the first Mondrian hotel in France, opened in March on the site of the town’s oldest luxury hotel, the former Grand Hotel Cannes. The new luxury lifestyle hotel underwent extensive renovations to offer 75 rooms (including three suites), meeting and event facilities, Hyde Beach Cannes and a restaurant.
Mondrian Cannes features an oceanfront location, including a private beach and is the only property on the legendary boulevard de La Croisette to have its own gardens and direct access to the rue d’Antibes shopping district.
