The international hotel group Mandarin Oriental has been awarded 18 Michelin stars in the 2017 Michelin Guides – again more than any other hotel chain, it has announced.

The inaugural Michelin Guide for Shanghai which was released in September last year, bestowed a Michelin star at Yong Yi Ting at the Mandarin Oriental Pudong, while Seta at the Mandarin Oriental in Milan won a second star.

Hong Kong boasts six Michelin stars across its portfolio, with the Mandarin Oriental’s Pierre claiming two stars, and its Man Wah and Mandarin Grill + Bar restaurants retaining their one star statuses.

Amber, helmed by Richard Ekkebus at the Landmark Mandarin Oriental also kept its two star status last year.

Over in Tokyo, Signature, Sense and Tapas Molecular Bar in Nihonbashi’s business district have one star respectively, while Moments in Barcelona’s Mandarin Oriental retained its two stars and Dinner at London’s Hyde Park also kept its two stars.

Sur Mesure at Mandarin Oriental in Paris maintained its two Michelin stars in the 2016 Michelin Guide, as the 2017 guide for France will be published in the first quarter of this year.

Last year, the Mandarin Oriental group also claimed to own the most Michelin stars out of all other international hotel chains.

“We are delighted to once again receive these prestigious accolades, and are particularly honoured that Yong Yi Ting at Mandarin Oriental Pudong, Shanghai has received its first Michelin star in the city’s inaugural guide, while Seta at Mandarin Oriental, Milan has been awarded a second Michelin star,” said David Nicholls, the group’s corporate director of food and beverage.

“This reflects the dedication to great food and service that Mandarin Oriental hotels offer around the world.”

The Mandarin Oriental group started with the Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong in 1963 and has now expanded to 29 hotels and eight ‘residences’ in 19 countries and territories, with a new hotel reportedly planned for Doha.
