Naturally Better

One of our guiding principles at Mandarin Oriental is ‘Acting with responsibility’, which we strive to achieve through our Naturally Better plan. We’re on a journey to make things Naturally Better for the planet, for communities, and for you. As well as embracing and putting into practice our global sustainability initiatives, such as eliminating single-use plastic by March 2021, here at Mandarin Oriental, Munich we also have our own local initiatives to make sure we play our part in making your stay more sustainable.

For the planet


We have implemented several measures across our hotel which align with our group-wide policy of eliminating single-use plastic by March 2021. We have switched to recyclable glass bottles here at the entire hotel to eliminate single use plastic bottles. We have also eliminated all single use amenities (cotton-swabs, combs, razors, treatment consumables) in our rooms.​ We are also replacing all single-use plastic bath amenities such as shampoo or shower get with innovative wall units with luxury refillable dispensers.​

Here at Mandarin Oriental, Munich we have partnered with a local company Kloh GmbH to remove our food waste separately and convert it into green energy. This waste disposal system not only creates a nutrient-rich organic fertilizer, but also reduces our carbon footprint by generating electricity from 100% renewable sources.

At Mandarin Oriental, Munich all in-room coffee capsules are 100% compostable and organic.

For communities


Mandarin Oriental, Munich supports the local Munich orphanage and organizes an annual Christmas party for children aged between 3 to 15 years. Our colleagues volunteer their own time to help with the festivities.

In addition, the orphanage receives all proceeds from a Christmas wish tree located in the hotel lobby.

The Run for Life event takes place in September and was launched as a charity event to raise awareness of the topic of HIV/AIDS and to support the work of the Munich Aids Helpdesk. The fee to join this event is donated to the association.

For you


Our sauna and steam room provides guests with a healthy way to relax and our concierge can arrange a fitness session with a personal trainer in our well-appointed fitness centre.

As part of our commitment to reduce, reuse and recycle we’ve partnered with a local beekeeper. Mandarin Oriental, Munich has its own beehives and makes its "own" honey, beeswax candles and soap.
