Dubai-based luxury hospitality company Jumeirah Group will open its European flagship hotel, The Carlton Tower Jumeirah, in the heart of London’s Knightsbridge on June 1 this year.

The launch comes following an 18-month closure during which the illustrious A-lister haunt underwent an all-encompassing $141 million (£100 million) renovation, the most extensive in its history.

According to Jumeirah, every corner of the 17-story structure has been renovated to reflect the area’s history while also providing contemporary luxury. There will be 186 new bedrooms and suites, many of which will have balconies with stunning views of London, in addition to a new foyer and reception.

The accommodations feature textured wall paneling, furnishing in softer forms, and accents in a warm color palette influenced by British heritage hues in deep blue, green, and maroon as well as floor-to-ceiling marble bathrooms.

According to the top hospitality group, the Royal Suite is the hotel’s most exclusive apartment, with three bedrooms and the option to privatize the entire floor for the ultimate in security and discretion.

The main features of the renovation also include the iconic health club “The Peak Fitness Club & Spa”, which spans three floors, as well as new treatment rooms at the Talise Spa, and London’s largest 20-meter swimming pool with natural daylight and views through its double-height glass ceiling.

“The Peak will offer studio classes and a gym featuring bespoke “Technogym” equipment, overlooking The Peak’s light-filled cafe. With its new design and features as well as a strictly limited membership, The Peak looks set to retake its position at the forefront of London’s luxury wellness world,” as per the company spokesperson.

The hotel’s enviable position provides visitors with exclusive access to the private Cadogan Gardens, which includes a green space and tennis courts that are usually only available to residents.

The Carlton Tower Jumeirah’s destination restaurant “Al Mare” offers a sophisticated, welcoming dining experience imbued with all the charms of Italian cuisine, both familiar and luxurious. The restaurant allows a convivial, gastronomic experience, taking guests on a journey through Italy, and features a theatre kitchen, private dining room, and al fresco dining.

“Accessed from the lobby is “The Chinoiserie,” the hotel’s much-loved all-day dining area, which offers an innovative “cake-o’clock” concept serving patisserie all day. Additionally, a newly created lobby bar offers a refined cocktail and spirits experience in glamorous surrounds,” according to the company statement.
