Highs & Lows

  • The service was unparalleled. Everyone went above and beyond to be courteous, friendly and accessible.

  • Each guest receives a helpful wellness kit, featuring 2 face masks and hand sanitizer.

  • While the grand salon is temporarily closed, there's loads of choices offered for in-room dining.

  • It was nice to see usually single-use items replaced with elevated (and ultimately reusable) crystal versions instead.

  • Smart design shone through in the way the television was hidden behind a tinted mirror - when it was off, it was out of sight.

  • This hotel boasts a full-length heated pool, great for swimming laps or to just soak in.

  • This is the only Spa de La Mer in the country and it's a real treat.

  • Afternoon tea service was both delicious and beautiful, and it made my stay feel really special.

  • If your room is street-facing, you may hear from city-goers and traffic below, but don't worry - it's not enough to disturb your sleep.
