Better still: an air of nonchalance, a glass of Möet and an edible rendition of The 12 Days of Christmas carol. Yes. An edible rendition.

From the ornate splendour of its golden sandstone exterior, to the arresting views across the Thames from the roof terrace of the Royal Penthouse; Corinthia have not only succeeded in returning this once iconic building to its former glory, but in surpassing it, crafting a Grand Hotel truly fit for the 21st Century.
With the fond memory of the Olympics still fresh in our minds, and the Paralympics still in full swing, London is soon to be reaching the end of its glorious summer of sport. If you’re not quite ready to leave your competitive streak behind you just yet, The Terrace at Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel will be hosting The Belgravia Games, which will take place from September 7th – 9th. The palatial outdoor terrace of this luxury, boutique hotel will be transformed with oversized games and an expertly crafted Sloane’s Gin infused menu served over the weekend.
