UK: After an 18-month closure to complete a £100 million renovation, The Carlton Tower Jumeirah will open on June 1 2021 in Knightsbridge, London.
The 17-story hotel includes a redesigned foyer and reception, 186 renovated bedrooms and suites, a three-story redesigned health club and spa, a pool, lobby bar and lounge, as well as ballrooms and meeting rooms. It overlooks Sloane Street and a variety of London landmarks.
The hotel pool is the largest in London, and lined with cabanas. The Peak Fitness Club & Spa offers studio classes and has Technogym equipment.
There is also a main restaurant, Al Mare, available for guests. Marco Calenzo, an Italian native, will lead the Al Mare kitchen team.
Originally designed by Henry End, the renovation was overseen by 1508 London – an interior and architecture design studio.
Aaron Kaupp, general manager of The Carlton Tower Jumeirah said: “We are thrilled to welcome back our valued guests following a significant investment and a complete renovation of the hotel. This landmark, international opening is set against the backdrop of a pandemic, which has seen the world and our beloved industry face extreme difficulty. The Carlton Tower Jumeirah will be a beacon of hope during a very difficult time for us all. We will be a place to be seen once more, a cornerstone for the local London community as well as a leader of luxury hospitality in the world.”
Jumeirah operates 24 branded properties in eight countries and employs more than 13,500 staff members across 140 nationalities.
Established in 2010, 1508 are a London-based design studio, specialising in private residential, hospitality, and multi-unit developments across all stages of design and construction.
