If the promise of a staycation involves mowing the lawn and regrouting the bathroom, then you need to seriously raise your exceptions. By 1,000 feet. The art of staycating is being redefined thanks to the Shangri-La Hotel, At The Shard, London, and it’s just as luxurious as you’d expect.

The hotel, located on the 34th to 52nd floors of London’s iconic Shard, is perched far above London, and its plush rooms, intimate bar and fantastic restaurant offer a real respite from the stresses, the hubbub and noise of the capital below. As London spreads out in every direction, bathe in Western Europe’s highest infinity pool and simply let your anxieties evaporate, before heading for a three course meal at TĪNG Restaurant and Lounge, the effortlessly sleek 35th floor modern British restaurant with an Asian twist offering panoramic views that are only matched by the cuisine. After a nightcap at GŎNG Bar on level 52 head to one of London’s best appointed rooms, where no luxury is spared, before waking up in the clouds to enjoy one of London’s most ethereal breakfasts as the mist creates the impression of being on a mountaintop or a private jet.

And now you can do all of this more affordably than ever.

The Shangri-La Hotel, At The Shard, London are offering readers of The Handbook an exclusive opportunity to enjoy the hotel with a few special tweaks. Our readers, for instance, will have the chance to receive a complimentary room upgrade to the next room category. Not only this, enjoy a 20% saving at TĪNG Restaurant and Lounge or GŎNG Bar (incidentally the highest hotel bar in Western Europe) and complimentary wifi.
