Suite of the week: Revel in London’s unparalleled lavishness at the Royal Suite, Lanesborough Hotel, London


Lucky are those who live in London but destiny also smiles on those who get to visit one of the best cities in the world. When in Rome do like the Romans do but when in London live as the Londoners do. To experience London is all its hospitable glory, The Lanesborough is a five-star luxury hotel that personifies London’s surprise and charm with Michelin-starred restaurants, afternoon tea service, seductive Library Bar, and one of London’s best cigar and Cognac lounges. Like this wasn’t enticing enough the Lanesborough Hotel offers a chance to live like royalty in their seven-bedroom Royal Suite. It wouldn’t be wrong to call it a residence fit for a king and a large entourage of up to 18 guests. The Lanesborough Hotel’s Royal Suite gives you the comforts of a luxe lifestyle and stately views over Wellington Arch and the gardens of Buckingham Palace Gardens. The suite is capacious spreading across 450 sq m/ 4,845 sq ft and encompassing seven bedrooms and bathrooms, two living rooms, and a large dining room that seeps the excellent British craftsmanship and critical attention to period detail. Goes without saying that such an incredible space is accompanied by unparalleled and impeccable service provided by a dedicated butler, who is at guests’ disposal around the clock. The suite opens into an opulent living room intricately decorated with distinctive British hues of blue, gold, and white. Several lamps, porcelain vases, fireplaces with lavish curtains contribute to making the living room appear stately. The bedrooms also are done up monochromatically using one main color and complementing furniture and accessories which adds a sense of individuality and persona to each room. The lavish bathrooms exhibit Roman influences in design and are well equipped with a steam shower, bathtub, bidet, double sink, and also underfloor heating for those cold London days.


For those who want to experience the grandeur of the Royal Suite but don’t have a party of 18 people in tow have an option of booking the incredible space in parts if not entirely (a smaller set of The Royal Suite can be done in a 1 bed, 2 bed, 3 bed, 4 bed, 5 bed, 6 bed, 7-bed configuration). Those who do book this larger-than-life Royal Suite in its entirety enjoy a complimentary conveyance service in the hotel’s chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce Phantom.
