We love a good hotel suite at The Handbook, in fact we pretty much wrote the book when it comes to the things, but even by our exacting standards The Berkeley’s Pavilion Suites have got us pretty excited.
The luxury Knightsbridge hotel have turned to their old friend and long-time collaborator Andre Fu. The designer had already worked on The Opus Suite, which looks out over Hyde Park and is a thing of beauty to behold, let alone to stay in, and now his studio AFSO is back with two spectacular suites to complement it. Welcome to The Grand Pavilion Suite and the Crescent Pavilion Suite.
The two bedroom Grand Pavilion Suite has a wraparound terrace replete with its own firepit and is surrounded on three sides with glass (hence ‘pavilion’) giving the illusion of being suspended above Belgravia. From the mirrored entrance to the sculptural landscaping outside, guests will be blown away.
Unless they’ve already stayed in the Crescent Pavilion Suite, in which case they’ll already know what extreme luxury is. This suite can seat eight for dinner and has two large terrace areas, front and back and wrapping around and it all flows together effortlessly thanks to Fu’s signature styling and deft touches.
The new suites complement an already impressive offering from one of London’s leading hotels. With the battle for sweetest suite in London already very much on, The Berkeley have pulled out two very serious contenders with the pavilion suites.
