Having received many prestigious accolades in the past, The LaLiT London hits another milestone with the BoHo Award 2019. Unlike other hospitality awards, the BoHos are rewarded not by judges but by the property guests, using a combination of aggregated verified guest feedback from booking engines and review sites worldwide along with direct guest feedback via questionnaires. This means that the awards are a true contemplation of the level of services being offered, the excellence of guest experience at the hotel’s numerous venues and attention to detail. Let’s contemplate on what makes The LaLiT London a deserving entry:
Offering a refreshing slant on the luxury hotel experience, The LaLiT London is the first international offering from the luxury Indian hotel group. The hotel is housed in a stunning, centuries-old grammar school. Offering a refreshing take on British charisma and Indian elegance, this luxurious retreat with an evocative charm draws business and leisure guests from all nationalities. Magnificent architecture, vaulted ceilings and grand wood paneling are the standout features of this hotel that make it one among the best luxury hotels in London.
Ideal Staycations Confirmed
It’s not just the exteriors that take one’s breath away as more dramatic changes await inside. Drawing inspiration from the bright colours and textures of India, stunning handmade tapestries and paintings adorn the walls. Headboards, curtains and bedspreads in guestrooms are aptly decorated with intricate designs embroidered on silk fabrics. Modern amenities such as Japanese-heated toilets and smartphones that can be used by guests throughout the stay further add to its sophisticated appeal. The super comfy rooms are aesthetically rich and shine through this neo-Baroque establishment. Bathed in soothing hues of orange and cream detailing, even the “cosy rooms” are spacious and well-lit. If the room décor feels a bit modest, the bathroom is up the ante with monochrome geometric patterned tiles, huge walk-in rainforest showers and marble countertops.
Talking about Rejuve- The Spa, it combines Eastern and Western therapies to offer you a complete holistic experience, making it a point of pride for The LaLiT London. The Ayurvedic techniques consisting of massage therapies, body treatments and facials are what journeys of pure relaxation are made up of. For a full-throttle workout, there’s also a well-equipped gym that can easily be accessed using a room key card. If you prefer intimate engagements over rambunctious parties, the two bars named the Headmaster’s Room and the Teacher’s Room beckon you to try out the most exquisite wines, brandies and whiskeys.
The open gallery, timber paneling and vaulted ceilings of the former Great Hall were refurbished to create the astonishing Baluchi – a Pan-Indian Restaurant. One of the most visually-arresting dining spaces of the LaLiT London, the Baluchi is lit up by ornate, cobalt-blue chandeliers that pay tribute to the hand glass blowing art of Hyderabad. Painted royal blue, the restaurant strives to serve a contemporary take on impeccably executed Indian cuisines. There’s even a bread bar called the Naanery that offers a modern twist on traditional bread recipes, prepared in cast iron tandoor oven, each paired with a complementing wine.
Set back from the busy city and exuding country-like charm with its clean red brick exterior, The LaLiT London is like a calm oasis. Located at a very convenient location, this 5-star hotel in London is also ideal for embarking on day trips in and out of London with the large London Bridge train station and Tube nearby.
