Jumeirah Group, the global luxury hospitality company, opened its European flagship hotel, The Carlton Tower Jumeirah, in the heart of London’s Knightsbridge.. The opening followed an 18-month closure during which the illustrious A-lister haunt underwent an all-encompassing £100 million renovation – the most extensive in its history. The hotel’s enviable position supplies guests with unique access to the private Cadogan Gardens, presenting a green space and tennis courts, normally only open to residents.
Every corner of the 17-story building has been redesigned to embody the heritage of the area and contemporary luxury. Along with a new foyer and reception, there will be 186 new bedrooms and suites, many of which will boast balconies with spectacular views over London. The accommodations feature textured wall panelling, furnishing in softer forms and accents in a warm color palette influenced by British heritage hues in deep blue, green and maroon as well as floor to ceiling marble bathrooms. Newly created is the Royal Suite, the hotel’s most exclusive residence featuring three bedrooms with the option to privatize the entire floor for the utmost in security and discretion.
Highlight features of the renovation also include the famous health club “The Peak Fitness Club & Spa” set across three floors, as well as new treatment rooms at the Talise Spa, and London’s largest 20m swimming pool with natural daylight and views through its double-height glass ceiling. The Peak will offer studio classes and a gym featuring bespoke “Technogym” equipment, overlooking The Peak’s light-filled cafe. With its new design and features as well as a strictly limited membership, The Peak looks set to retake its position at the forefront of London’s luxury wellness world.
The hotel’s destination restaurant “Al Mare” offers a sophisticated, welcoming dining experience imbued with all the charms of Italian cuisine, both familiar and luxurious. The restaurant allows a convivial, gastronomic experience, taking guests on a journey through Italy and features a theatre kitchen, private dining room and al fresco dining. Accessed from the lobby is “The Chinoiserie,” the hotel’s much-loved all-day dining area, which offers an innovative “cake-o’clock” concept serving patisserie all day. Additionally, a newly created lobby bar offers a refined cocktail and spirits experience in glamorous surrounds.
