When it comes to pure, unadulterated luxury, there are few places in the capital that can compete with the opulent surroundings at the Ritz. Arguably London’s most iconic hotel, it’s long been seen as the premier destination for the top class traveller. You only have to look at the grand, almost stately rooms and incredible decoration to see why this hotel has firmly entrenched itself in the heart of oligarchs and celebrities alike.
In terms of facilities, it’s second to none, offering several incredible bars, a gym and a whole host of other guest privileges that are sure to leave you with a smile on your face. Fancy living the high life? Then why not have a butler wait on you hand and foot or travel the streets in a chauffeur driven car. Stressed after a long day? Well never fear, there’s a brilliant salon just waiting to indulge you with a sensual massage and a body mask.
The food isn’t half bad either: the Ritz Restaurant is famed for its high quality. This top rated eatery serves up modern British cuisine with a flourish, combining traditional flavours with contemporary techniques to create a thoroughly entertaining collection of dishes. Of course, we would be amiss to mention the food here without also touching on the exceptional grand dining room. Full of red and regal gold furnishings, it truly is a sight to behold and one that’s great for a photo op as it is for high tea.
