Mandarin Oriental Launches Collection of Exclusive Homes
Those familiar with Mandarin Oriental will be used to the group’s exceptional service and unbeatable luxury. Now, the iconic brand has made it even easier to experience this through the launch of a series of exclusive homes in partnership with StayOne.
This collaboration marries two of the most trusted names when it comes to vacations. Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group is responsible for some of the most opulent and luxurious hotels and residences across the globe, while StayOne is the world’s first luxury travel social marketplace listing what they dub the “finest one percent of holiday homes.”
So what can guests expect from this partnership?
Launching this summer with eight homes, this initial collection includes properties in France, Spain and the United Kingdom. But whichever destination you choose, you can rest assured that you will be treated to the same levels of hospitality that you would find at any Mandarin Oriental hotel.

Each home is serviced by the hotel group, so expect all of the polished services and amenities you would get if you visited one of their hotels (think plush bathrobes, turndown services and a 24/7 concierge service) while enjoying the privacy of an entire property to yourself.
Personalizing your stay to your exacting needs, your dedicated concierge will be in touch from the initial booking right through to departure to determine those fine details: from the activities and restaurants you might be interested in, to your breakfast preferences. And, if you’re traveling with children, you can make requests for tailored experiences and child-friendly necessities.
The exclusive homes also have an army of staff that are selected and trained by the Mandarin Oriental team. An in-house private chef will expand your culinary palette with local cuisines, while housekeeping staff ensure you don’t have to worry about doing the dishes.
And it’s this ‘experience’ that Mandarin Oriental and StayOne are so keen to emphasize at the new exclusive homes. With staff having an unparalleled knowledge of each locale, guests can truly immerse themselves in their chosen destination.
The hardest choice, however, will be deciding which of the properties to vacation at. In the South of France, La Maison vue de Saint Jean boasts glittering views of the French Riviera from its cliff-top setting. Meanwhile, in Ibiza, Tagomago Private Island is yours to explore with secluded beaches and a Finca-style villa that is the ultimate entertaining space.
But for those who prefer the countryside, other destinations include a rural retreat in Mallorca and a charming Georgian-style manor in the heart of the Cotswolds.
