The Savoy hotel set to re-open

The Savoy hotel – which has been shut for several years to undergo rigorous restoration works – has finally announced a re-opening date.

It has taken the legendary London residence over three years to complete what it calls the “most ambitious restoration in history”, recruiting more than 1000 craftsmen and women, artists and artisans in the process. Now, the works are nearing completion, and the hotel is set to re-open on 10 October this year.

The interior has been completely revamped with the help of renowned designer Pierre Yves Rochon, who has channelled the hotel’s classic mix of Edwardian and art deco style in an all-new format. This includes the addition of a luxurious-new two-bedroom suite, as well as 38 re-styled River Suites pictured and guests rooms over-looking the Thames.

The River Restaurant has been remodelled, and the Savoy Grill is set to return under the operation of Gordon Ramsey Holdings with chef patron Stuart Gillies and head chef Andy Cook manning the helm.

New to the hotel is The Beaufort Bar: an art deco-styled bar which will serve a selection of cocktails and Champagne while it entertains guests with cabaret performances. Tea shop Savoy Tea will be the perfect place to pick up a gourmet brew, and will sell tea-related accessories and fresh patisseries.

Those who wish to keep fit during their stay will be delighted to hear that there is also a new glass-covered fitness gallery, and a rooftop swimming pool.

Rates will start from ?350 per room per night, and reservations are due to open on 10 August 2010.
