Well, we can not travel, yet, it does not mean that we can not escape the routine of our flats or homes and treat our partners. Here are 4 romantics getaways in London. Enjoy and stay safe!
The Mandrake, Fitzrovia
What makes the Mandrake so special is its truly immersive atmosphere – guests enter through a dark tunnel and emerge into a rainforest lobby complete with a vaulted ceiling and showstopping chandelier. Book into a room here for an experience that will tantalise the senses with its rich colour palette. Enjoy the lounge and bar with a signature cocktail in hand – the White Witch (a riff on the Negroni) is particularly potent.
Blakes London, South Kensington
Thanks to interior designer Anouska Hempel, the rooms at Blakes have taken on an Asian elegance unrivalled by any other London hotel. It would be almost impossible not to have a romantic stay here – particularly in one of the signature suites, which are decked out in white muslin and bleached wood. Book a corner table at the hotel restaurant for an evening of gastronomic decadence, or pop into partnered South Kensington Club for a couples massage.
Henrietta Hotel, Covent Garden
This cosy hotel in the heart of Covent Garden is perfect for social-media mavens looking for a romantic getaway. Choose the Henrietta room and you’ll be rewarded with charming interiors featuring velvet armchairs and brass lamps. There are plenty of excuses to enjoy a bath together, too, in the Instagrammable marble and soft-pink bathrooms. When you’re all dressed up, head down to the bar to sample the literary-inspired cocktails that pay tribute to the building’s former incarnation as a publishing house.
Shangri-La at the Shard, London Bridge
In a city full of sky-high views, it’s rare to find one that stands out. But at Shangri-La at the Shard, it’s not just the skyscraper aspect that will impress. Occupying the 34th to 52nd floors of London’s tallest building, this glitzy hotel is bound to sweep you off your feet. When you eventually pry your eyes away from the sights below and onto your room, you’ll find classic furnishings with Art Deco touches and a massive marble-clad bathroom. The luxury factor is on a par with the epic view. Every room comes with a set of binoculars – you’ll feel like you’re working a shift in the world’s highest watchtower.
