From 12th April, we are delighted to open our Residences once more. When you arrive, our delicious and carefully curated complimentary hamper of treats will be waiting in your private Residence, including biscuits, macarons, mixed nuts and chocolates, all created by our Executive Chef Daniel Putz and his wonderful team.

We pour our creativity into every room, always with our guests’ comfort in mind. Each room has a distinct character, filled with curated artworks and sumptuous prints.
