The Carlton Tower Jumeirah reopens with staycation experience
The Carlton Tower Jumeirah in London’s Knightsbridge has reopened following an 18-month, £100 million refurbishment with a new luxury staycation experience for first-in guests.
Time To Shine has been designed to allow guests to make the most of their time in the capital with early check from 10am and late check out at 10pm. The package includes a room upgrade, a one hour massage in Talise Spa or, for families, a meal created in collaboration with children’s food expert, Annabel Karmel. Guests travelling by car can also enjoy complimentary secure valet parking.
Aaron Kaupp, regional vice president for Northern Europe and general manager of The Carlton Tower Jumeirah said: “We are thrilled to welcome back our valued guests following a significant investment and a complete renovation of the hotel, with new rooms, restaurant offerings, spa and lobby entrance.
“This landmark opening is set against the backdrop of a pandemic, which has seen the world and our beloved industry face extreme difficulty. The Carlton Tower Jumeirah will be a beacon of hope during a very difficult time for us all. We will once more be the place to be seen, a cornerstone for the local London community, as well as a leader of luxury hospitality in the world.”
The refurbishment of The Carlton Tower encompassed all areas of the 17-story building.
The property’s 216 guest rooms have been reduced to 186 to allow for larger accommodation. All have been completely renovated by interior design studio 1508 London with an emphasis on light and space.
The renovations include the creation of a double-height reception, a lobby bar and lounge, a ballroom and meeting rooms, and Italian restaurant AI Mare serving ‘sophisticated’ Italian cuisine.
The hotel has also gained a new health club, The Peak, and new treatment rooms at the Talise Spa, which is set across three floors and reportedly boasts London’s largest indoor pool (pictured).
Room rates start from £540 including VAT.
