The Savoy Suite has just opened at The Savoy Hotel, for lovers of splendid opulence. The suite carries through the Edwardian and Art Deco styles, with modern touches, found elsewhere in the classic hotel. Architecture firm ReardonSmith have created a Suite experience with unparalleled levels of luxury. The opening of the new Savoy Suite, and renovated Royal Suite, marks an evolutionary chapter in the history of the prestigious London Landmark hotel.
ReardonSmith understand the complexities of the Savoy’s listed status, which requires skillful transformation. The unveiling of the latest Suite merges the team’s design acumen with the impeccable vision of interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon. In the Savoy Suite majestic double doors add a sense of ceremony to room, and a large lounge with big sofas (and bigger views) has a Chinese lacquer cocktail bar- perfect for statement-making entertainment.
The Art Deco aesthetic comes complete with walnut floors, black marble shelves, stitched panelled doors, creamy leather furnishings and a warming bronze and copper fireplace. The illustrious materials are continued into the master and secondary bedrooms where the gilded vanity counter throws back to the hotel’s opulent past.
The newly renovated Suite spans nearly all of the fifth floor and includes the spot where Monet once painted the Thames. With lots of natural lighting, the suite has an airy feel but that may be an understatement. The room follows a colour palette of yellow ochre and gold. But against this classical backdrop, technological innovation is not forgotten. Slide open cleverly concealed panels and discover a huge hidden television. Just like the Savoy, their Suites are never ending troves of treasure. And a snip at only £6,500 a night.
