Mandarin Oriental @ Dellis Cay

“My inspiration was the light. I have designed all the buildings trying to capture this light, I have tried to have the light going through all the spaces like a blade. The design is sophisticated but based on simplicity.”
Mandarin Oriental @ Dellis Cay
Design team: Piero Lissoni
Location: Dellis Cay, Turks & Caicos Islands
When to visit: 2010

Sitting on the westernmost end of the island The Residences at Mandarin Oriental Dellis Cay demonstrate a respectful attitude towards nature and the island’s intimacy. This exclusive collection comprises Hotel Residences and the small enclave of Beach House Residences at Mandarin Oriental Dellis Cay designed by the prestigious architect Piero Lissoni.

Under the management of Mandarin Oriental, the Residences offer a range of services and facilities to delight owners beyond their expectations.


Enhanced by all the gracious splendor and superb services of the Mandarin Oriental, the twenty-four private residences at Mandarin Oriental Dellis Cay will offer a wondrous living style. Each of the Hotel Residences is very much a home of its own, whether you choose a one-bedroom duplex, an expansive two-bedroom residence, or the three- and four-bedroom penthouses with panoramic sea views. All will bear the unique stamp of Piero Lissoni, both in sophisticated contemporary design and distinct furniture packages accentuated by Lissoni's impeccable grasp of form and color. The Hotel Residences will also feature private terraces, Boffi kitchens, top-tier appliances and lavish finishes and amenities throughout.

In addition, the Hotel Residences will place all the delights of the Mandarin Oriental within your reach. Only a few short steps away are the pleasures of the signature restaurant, a variety of pools, the MO Bar, boutique shops and the lush tropical landscaping that virtually envelops you at Dellis Cay.


Piero Lissoni will be creating nine 3-story buildings that exquisitely complement the island's natural landscape and line the powder-sand beaches of Dellis Cay. There will be only six Beach House Residences per building, with two and three-bedroom residences ranging from 2,000 to more than 3,000 square feet - many featuring expansive private terraces. Artfully positioned around a central pool, the Beach House Residences will offer a variety of picturesque pools and ponds for relaxation and exercise - all interconnected by a series of lushly landscaped walkways that also provide direct beach access.

The Beach House Residences boast unobstructed ocean views and are fully serviced by the staff of Mandarin Oriental Dellis Cay - catering to your every requirement. Each residence features distinctive furniture packages, state-of-the-art Boffi kitchens, spacious master suites and lavishly equipped bathrooms. Situated to maximize privacy and seclusion, every Beach House Residence is designed to highlight the natural beauty of Dellis Cay.
