Kind by M.O. is a beachside eco-conscious concept store that offers a carefully curated collection of fully sustainable resort wear, swimwear and accessories designed by emerging local talents as well as global artisanal retailers.

 

Kind by M.O. embodies Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group’s guiding principle of ‘Acting with Responsibility’ and its journey to make life ‘Naturally Better’ for the planet, communities and guests.

 

The name Kind is simple yet powerful, implying a positive attitude towards life. It’s the Resort’s way to encourage kindness towards the Earth, the community and to one another.

 

Upholding the core values of empowerment, diversity and inclusion, Emirati artist of determination Asma Baker was invited to design the boutique’s logo. A talented creator on the Autism spectrum, Asma used elements of her signature art collection, ‘Little Heart People’, to create a unique and meaningful design.
