Mandarin Oriental that hasn’t previously had any king of formal loyalty or guest recognition program has now launched Fans of M.O. for those booking directly with the chain.
Now, members who book direct are eligible for select benefits such as welcome amenity and complimentary WiFi and can then choose two additional benefits from a list of eight that include early check in, late check out, breakfast, or room upgrade among others.
You can access Fans of M.O. here.

There has been very little or actually no benefits at all for traveling public to book directly with Mandarin Oriental so offering guest recognition program on their own makes sense.
Many of these hotels with extra benefits have been available via luxury booking services such as Virtuoso. I guess that Mandarin Oriental here tries to capture more of the booking flown on their own.
