Already one week past since we've been travelling to London for fashion week. It has been an amazing time and spontaneously we even decided to stay a little longer since we got a love he offered by the Taj hotel to be their guests for one more night..
Earlier that week we were even invited for the Alice in Wonderland inspired afternoon tea. The article about that it's about to follow but be prepared for something really "sweet".
We were so excited to visit the hotel again, since we've been already mind blown by our first visit . The Taj hotel is a wonderful luxury hotel in the heart of London close to Victoria station. It is Only 10 minutes by bus to Piccadilly Circus and a few minutes by walk to the Buckingham palace.
When we have arrived we had someone to help us with the luggage and who brought us to our suite located in the fifth floor. After our arrival and a short rest we requested a hotel tour. One of the duty managers was so friendly to show us around.
Our first stop were the exclusive suites which are up to £10,000 a night. There is the Bollywood and the Jaguar suite. Sadly we only had a change to visit the Bollywood suite since the Jaguar suite was already booked.
The Bollywood suite has not only been unbelievable huge, also the pieces of decor were countless. Next to colorful film posters, we found plates on the wall, a lot of luxurious furniture and even a movie room. The suite has two bedrooms and a full furnitured kitchen. One is for sure, the guests of this suite never want to leave again.
Both of us became really big fans of the wellness center which offers treatments designed by La Sultana de Saba. We were welcomed by the friendly therapists and saw some of to treatment rooms and got explained some of the treatments.Beside a huge fitness center there is also a sauna area to chill down after a stressful day in London.
Our evening has been upgraded with a dinner at Bistro 51. The chef Sriram Atur and his creations were very tasty and brought together the best of Indian south west coastal cuisine.
When we came back to our suite my heart has been touched by a wonderful surprise. The kitchen had prepared a cookie with my blog name on it , which had been super surprising and honoring for me.
On the next day we had breakfast, which was also located at Bistro 51. The breakfast was typically 'English', which made it a little hard for me as a vegan. However I was prepared with fresh fruits, gluten free bread and avocado, so as fresh tea.
After our breakfast it was already time to pack our suitcases and head to the airport. We were very happy about this additional night in London and it has been a great experience. We want to thank the Taj hotel for the spontaneous invitation and the memorable stay.
