I’ve found spending more time exploring the UK for clients’ breaks illuminating and surprisingly agreeable. I’ve added several absolute must-dos to my ever-growing list.
Whilst researching a very special brief for a 2-night stay in central London, I was taken by The Hari and I knew it would be one for serious consideration.
The Hari is a stylish 5* retreat in the heart of London’s Belgravia, a sanctuary for modern travellers and connoisseurs of luxury, comfort, understated elegance and impeccable service.
With many people looking for staycations and experiences closer to home in the short term, I have been keeping my eyes peeled, and with London and its plentiful attractions re-opening, this is a great consideration especially with the added offer of a food and beverage credit which can be used during the stay, complimentary breakfast and a room upgrade subject to availability for bookings made by the end of July.
The 85 designer bedrooms, including 14 luxury suites, have been designed to make stays as relaxing and comfortable as possible.
Each room features a mix of plush velvet upholstery, marble bathrooms, contemporary art and stylish furnishings along with Wi-Fi and Noble Isle amenities.
On entering the hotel, guests are met by a large fireplace in an open loft-feel lobby housing stunning art installations.
The lounge lobby features an eclectic library and cosy hideaway areas, whilst the mezzanine level plays host to the contemporary Hari Bar and leads to the stylish Garden Terrace.
The Garden Terrace is an urban oasis and the perfect space for entertaining under the stars.
Features include living walls and a retractable glass roof and heaters. It offers a range of creative concepts, including barbecues with a dedicated chef, or whisky and cigar tastings with a cigar sommelier.
Exceptional seasonal cuisine in a chic and sophisticated setting, Il Pampero is one of the best Italian restaurants in the area.
Marrying effortless Italian chic and hospitality with the vintage glamour of Belgravia lifestyle, acclaimed designer Tara Bernerd created a bespoke scheme for the hotel’s 2016 opening that embraces informal luxury.
Bold Vespa-green lacquers and rich velvets combine with soft leathers and heritage fabrics to create a warm and inviting vibe.
While circular booths are set against the back and sidewalls, the focal point is the striking central bar where cocktails are served, and diners can embrace the Italian tradition of Aperitivo.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the team delivers a traditional Italian menu complemented by an impressive wine list and cocktail menu.
The hotel is situated in the residential streets of Belgravia, among sweeping crescents and stucco mansions, where earls lived next to great poets, dignitaries and musicians in a discreet, leafy, quintessentially British neighbourhood.
It is only a few minutes’ walk from the prestigious shopping districts of Knightsbridge and Sloane Square, and tourist attractions such as Buckingham Palace and the Royal Albert Hall.
I am anticipating my own visit to The Hari with great excitement. You can be sure that I’ll share my experience with you when I do.
