The Luxury Of Private Space
I have always thought that London is amazing: with its iconic landmarks, fantastic museums, state-of-the-art restaurants and cultural diversity, it's a city like no other. And it looks like at least 13 million people who traveled to London in 2013 from all over the world share this feeling (according to the Office Of National Statistics insights). While attracting so many visitors, London manages to offer a smooth experience for its discreet guests who appreciate privacy and space. Now that The Kensington Hotel has introduced The Kensington Suite - London’s largest town house suite - the definition of space has a totally new prospective.
With a generous 180 sq metres of space, The Kensington Suite comprises three bedrooms and three bathrooms, as well as two distinct living areas, and comes complete with extras including dressing room, a sumptuous circular day bed with flatscreen LCD TV, French windows leading to the balcony with beautiful views to South Kensington, Bose/iPad/iPhone docking stations, complimentary WiFi, private decanter bar and Nespresso coffee machines and much more.
Featuring designs by Denis Looby of Sheehan and Barry Architects, The Kensington Suite evokes the atmosphere of a classic 19th century Parisian apartment leaving its guests speechless about the beauty of eclectic mix of the classic and the contemporary with antique. Some pieces comprising the Suite range from a lacquered cocktail cabinet to a 1930’s Murano chandelier to the latest bathroom accessories including heated floors, walk-in showers and whirlpool baths. My personal favourites are the fireplace in the living rooms and bedrooms, beautiful baths and a grand mirror that conveniently has a built-in TV that only becomes visible when the TV is on and looks like a classic mirror otherwise.
Uniquely created as a series of versatile interconnecting living spaces, The Kensington Suite can be reserved as either a one, two or three bedroom configuration meaning that members of big families travelling to London can all enjoy their luxurious stay at the spacious suite, while taking advantage of the privacy and personal space created by the suite's design. Having spent an evening in The Kensington Hotel the other day, I had hard time leaving The Kensington Suite as the homely atmosphere makes you want to stay and spend time by the fireplace.
