Certain members of the bling dynasty—Will Smith and Mary J. Blige, to name but two—apparently count the Mandarin as one of their favorite places to chill. It’s far from low-key, however: $100 million was needed to construct the hotel on a small island adjacent to the city’s financial district. Rich fabrics and modern furnishings decorate the rooms, many of which have balconies. Bathrooms are clad in Spanish marble, and some of the suites have their own kitchens. An expansive spa, state-of-the-art fitness center and beach club contribute to the lavishness. There are two restaurants, La Mar by Gastón Acurio and Azul, plus the lovely Mo Bar + Lounge.
