Your Luxury London Guide

London is a hot destination for jet-setters who want to experience the finer things in life. Whether you want to treat yourself to some retail therapy or enjoy a world-class meal accompanied by stunning views, this thriving city has it all. And what better time to take care of yourself than the start of a new year?


Sometimes we forget to spend a little money on ourselves and our hotel just happens to be in the perfect location to change that! Located just a short walk away from the shopping haven of Knightsbridge, you'll have plenty of opportunities to get some quality shopping time.

Harrods is possibly the most iconic luxury stores in London and from the moment you step through its emerald doorways, you'll see why. Offering extravagant decorations with beautiful statues, fountains and halls embellished with different motifs, this store isn’t just the perfect place to shop but it’s also the perfect place to sight see.

Selfridges is just another store which we like to call, a shoppers paradise. Whatever you’re looking for, you will be sure to find it, as this sensational shop has everything from beauty staples to stationary and luxury fashion from the likes of Versace and Prada. You can also stop by the food hall and check out all their tempting bites for a quick shopping break!


Shopping can be exhausting, so below is listed just a couple of our favourite luxury restaurants close by to our Hotel.

CERU is a gorgeous Mediterranean restaurant located in South Kensington and offers a very extensive menu of big flavours and small plates. Extracting all of the zest and spice across the eastern Mediterranean coast, CERU makes for the essential diners’ destination in London’s most cosmopolitan areas.

If you prefer not to travel at all, our very own Min Jiang has everything you need for the picture-perfect luxury dining experience, with breath-taking views of Kensington Gardens and London’s Skyline, authentic Chinese dishes and a friendly team to cater to your every need. They also offer a delightful selection of high quality champagnes, including the Alcohol free So Jennie, which embodies this new pact between celebration and wellbeing.

Things to do

Following the ground-breaking success of 2018’s debut event, the London Eid Festival returns to Westfield, London on the 8th of June 2019 - bigger and more glamourous than ever. Featuring delicious halal food stalls, a modest fashion show, shopping and entertainment, it truly is an event worth attending! Feast on food from around the world, join in a range of family activates and enjoy live music whilst you mark the end of Ramadan and learn more about the Muslim culture.

London is full of famous and iconic landmarks, and we are lucky enough to have a number of them on our doorstep; two being Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. They have large open spaces so you can stretch your legs in style while taking in the beautiful scenery. You can also feed the ducks or hire out some bikes, whatever you choose, there is so much to explore.
