Nestled in the heart of one of the world’s most vibrant cities, The Peninsula London that has opened their doors some months ago has set a new standard for luxury accommodations. This opulent hotel with 190 guest rooms and 25 luxury residences, located in the prestigious Belgravia neighborhood, offers not only exquisite comfort but also a gateway to a world of shopping and sightseeing possibilities. The Peninsula Hotel also have a spa and wellness center including a twenty five meters pool that couldn’t be visited, because they’re not ready yet. After arriving at the Heathrow airport I was picked up from one of thirteen in total limousines from the Peninsula hotel. The transfer took circa fourty minutes.
Elegance and Opulence:
The Peninsula London Hotel embodies elegance and opulence, with its impeccable design and top-notch amenities. From the moment you step into the grand lobby, you’ll be enveloped in an atmosphere of sophistication and luxury. The spacious rooms and suites are meticulously designed to ensure your stay is nothing short of extraordinary. My room was in the patio area, which is very large and offer a lot of space for almost without exception luxurious cars. I spotted Ferraris, Bentleys and a beautiful Rolls Royce limousine from the hotel from my room window. Other special features of my room were the beautiful high quality wooden dress room and the spacious bathroom with marble from the ceiling to the floor. I addition to the Dyson hair dryer I also had my own nail dryer.
London is renowned as a shopping paradise, and The Peninsula London is conveniently located for those seeking retail therapy. Within walking distance, you’ll find the upscale shopping district of Sloane Street, home to designer boutiques such as Chanel, Gucci, and Prada. Harrods, the iconic luxury department store, is also just a stone’s throw away, offering a shopping experience like no other. I used the only full day in London for meetings, several photo shoots and had very little time in the evening. That’s why I just went to Harrods and it was absolutely enough because I finally found the Chanel shoes there that I’ve been looking for for three years.
For those with a penchant for culture and history, The Peninsula London is ideally situated for a wide range of sightseeing adventures. A short stroll can take you to Buckingham Palace, where you can witness the Changing of the Guard ceremony. The Victoria and Albert Museum, the Natural History Museum, and the Science Museum are also nearby, offering a chance to delve into art, history, and science.
The Serenity of Hyde Park:
Hyde Park, one of London’s most famous green spaces, is just a short walk from the hotel. Guests can escape the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy a leisurely stroll or a serene picnic in this expansive and tranquil park.
Fine Dining at its Best:
The Peninsula London takes culinary excellence seriously. The hotel’s restaurants offer a diverse range of gourmet experiences, from traditional British fare to exquisite international cuisine. After a day of shopping or sightseeing, you can return to the hotel to indulge in delectable dishes prepared by world-class chefs. I had in the first evening a wonderful gourmet dinner with an amazing view over London in the rooftop restaurant called Brooklands led by 2 Michelin star chef Claude Bosi. The bar that goes with it is just as special and the atmosphere there is absolutely unique. And here too it has to be said that the view is absolutely fantastic… the London Eye and Big Ben are some of the sights that can be admired from there. I love how communicative Londoners are. Within ten minutes I had made three new acquaintances and had some really funny conversations.
In the second evening I had dinner in the beautiful lobby area where you can hear to life music and enjoy the hustle and bustle of London’s coming and going high society. The day after I was in the blue canton for lunch. It is their Asian restaurant and I was amazed about the exquisite interior design and delicious food.
In conclusion, The Peninsula London Hotel is a true gem in the heart of the city. Its impeccable luxury, proximity to high-end shopping, and access to cultural landmarks make it an ideal destination for travelers seeking a world-class experience. During the site inspection I could also visit the hotels own and very beautiful flower shop and their coffee shop that’s well known by the natives and offers very elaborated and tasty looking patisseries. You can even eat there The Peninsula Hotel landmark, the white Asian lion. The real lions in a much larger version can be found at both hotel entrances. Whether you’re indulging in retail therapy or exploring the city’s rich history, The Peninsula London offers the perfect base for an unforgettable stay.
