London’s historic Cadogan Hotel is set to reopen as a Belmond property in February 2019.

Comprising five 1800s Queen Anne-style buildings, the 54-bedroom Belmond Cadogan is on the border of Chelsea and Knightsbridge, next to Sloane Square station.

Former guests include Oscar Wilde and socialite Lillie Langtry.

The hotel closed for refurbishment in 2014 and had previously announced it would reopen in 2016 and 2018.

The new lobby and guestrooms are by designers GA Design International and architects Blair Associates. Rooms range from twins to large suites.

Features include over 400 pieces of original art, a spa, fitness centre and library. Guests have private access to garden square Cadogan Place and its tennis courts.

Modern British cuisine will be on hand at hotel restaurant Adam Handling Chelsea, headed up by eponymous chef Adam Handling.

It will be the first London property for luxury brand Belmond, which was recently acquired by LVMH, owners of Moet and Chandon, Hennessy and Louis Vuitton, in a $3.2 billion deal.

Belmond also operates the Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons in Oxfordshire, which Business Traveller last reviewed in 2014.

Bookings are available now from February 1, 2019.
