Internationally renowned designer Joyce Wang has overseen the design of all 181-guest rooms, suites and public areas, taking inspiration from the hotel’s royal heritage and peaceful parkside location, as well as the glamour of the early 20th Century’s Golden Age of travel.
As part of the first phase of the renovation, the five-star hotel’s façade was revitalised, and Joyce Wang transformed the Lobby Lounge and Reception area to maximise natural daylight and to blend with The Rosebery Lounge’s nature inspired décor.
Upon arrival, guests are now greeted with a centrepiece glass chandelier in the shape of a closed flower bud and an open flower blossom chandelier suspended over the lounge area.
The new decor also features reception artwork by Fredrikson Stallard an abstraction of the textured and layered bark of the Plane Tree – the signature tree of Hyde Park. Outside the hotel has installed a green living wall that surrounds the inner courtyard, providing calm interior views.
Each of the hotel’s 40 suites range in size from 47 square metres, located within the turrets of the hotel, to the largest at 397 square metres in the top floors penthouse suite. In every suite, guests will find reading libraries curated by the well-known London bookseller, Heywood Hill, record players with vintage vinyl collections and yoga mats for private practice.
All accommodation comes equipped with GHD hair straighteners, Nespresso coffee makers, ‘his and hers’ Miller Harris bathroom amenities and Jo Hansford hair products.
The new spa features 13 individual treatments rooms, an Oriental Suite with two massage beds and a Rasul water temple, a room designed for traditional Chinese Medicine consultations and treatments and two additional beauty rooms.
