Furthering its mission to offer restorative and environmentally conscious places to stay in the city, Inhabit Hotels has announced that its sister hotel in Bayswater, Inhabit Queen’s Gardens, will open in early 2022.
The boutique urban wellness hotel brand launched with its Paddington retreat formed across six former Georgian residences, and now the new launch follows in its footsteps of finding its home in an equally charming setting. Inhabit Queen’s Garden’s will be set across a crescent of mid-19th century townhouses on a tree-lined square close to Lancaster Gate. Keeping an intimate feel, the hotel will comprise 159 guest rooms which are all designed with comfort, rest, and rejuvenation in mind.
Sustainably conscious modern travellers will seek solace here and enjoy the thoughtfully designed spaces that bring wellbeing and responsible environmental choices to the forefront. For example, where possible, sustainable materials have been used in the building’s renovation. Creating an interesting feature, Granby Rock which is a custom-made terrazzo using marble from the original site, will form a centrepiece fireplace in the reception.
“The public areas include a 70-cover plant-heavy-menu restaurant and bar, comfortable lounge areas for socialising and working, and a noise-free library stocked with thought-provoking reads spanning wellness, meditation, social enterprise, holistic health, contemporary art, philosophy, local London and nature,” explain the owners of Inhabit Hotels. For guests who want to fully immerse themselves in the rejuvenating experience, there is also going to be a subterranean wellness area that will provide treatment rooms, a fitness suite, and yoga studio.
‘Inhale at Inhabit’, the hotel’s wellness centre, is set to host a packed programme including daily activities such as vinyasa flow, Pilates, and complimentary morning meditation classes – a great way to start the day.
Not just in the dedicated wellness spaces, but throughout the hotel, Inhabit has embedded a relaxed, sustainable style that inspires its flowing and cohesive interior design. The hotel has pledged to work with 100 social enterprises and small, socially-conscious businesses who share a similar passion and commitment to wellbeing and the environment. For the design process of this new space, Inhabit has worked with more than 30 makers and artists whose work you’ll find decorating the guest rooms and public areas.
Bespoke joinery by Goldfinger, an award-winning social enterprise with a planet-positive ethos, can be admired throughout the hotel, and artworks by emerging and established artists at Somerset House Studios and Makerversity complement the calming environment.
For visitors and guests, the hotel says that “inspiration awaits in works by artists such as AnneMette Beck, whose multi-textural art installation welcomes guests as it plays along the wall at reception. Hugo Dalton’s dynamic light drawings nudge visitors to consider nature from a new perspective. Freya Bramble Carter’s bespoke tactile ceramics are installed throughout the guest rooms. Social-impacting soft furnishings include Myanmar’s Kalinko Homewares and Studio 306 cushions from Aerende, made by people recovering from and living with mental health illness.”
Nightly rates start from £170, based on double occupancy, room only.
