The Hay Loft treatment room we saw looked like a perfect place to unwind for a few hours, and had its own bathroom and shower. Two steps across the top floor hallway take you to the greenery of the courtyard and five steps to the left have you lounging by the pool, which has a retractable roof for sunny days. The gym has also received an update and has views reaching so far you could wave at Shangri-La at the Shard when it opens one day.
Aside from the work that has been done on these public spaces, guestrooms have been getting an overhaul as well, including the creation of the top of the line Opus Suite, designed by Andre Fu. Nearly 3,000 square feet, with a bathroom larger than most London apartments and views over Hyde Park and Knightsbridge, we’ll be showing you around here soon.
We found a Deluxe King at the Berkeley for £510 (about $820) a night on a weekend late October, including champagne on arrival and breakfast for two. The spa is open to non-guests, and Londoners wanting to make this their go-to escape should inquire about membership.
